Fire glass is a form of tempered glass designed primarily for use in gas fire pits and fireplaces as an alternative to gas logs. This glass is designed to resist extreme temperatures without melting, burning, or discoloring. With a wide range of colors, varieties, and sizes to pick from, fire glass may accommodate any style desire. Not only can fire glass add a unique and bright aspect to your gas fire pits, but it also has several advantages over gas logs in natural gas or propane fire pits.
Benefits of Fire Glass
With a wide range of benefits ranging from safety to durability, fire glass has proven to be an excellent choice for the majority of the gas fire pit population. The most appealing benefits are low maintenance, durability, safety, and efficient temperature radiation.
As previously stated, fire glass does not melt, burn, or discolor. The glass also leaves no soot or ash to clean up, produces no smoke, and does not require any mid-burn maintenance. This means you can light your fire and sit back and relax without needing to add kindling or stoke it. Maintenance of fire glass is almost obsolete in the absence of soot and ash. If dust accumulates on the glass over time, simply wash it outside of the fire pit with light dish soap and warm water, rinsing well before replacing it in the fire pit.
Fire glass has a nearly infinite lifespan. The fire glass is designed to resist intense temperatures and will not pop or break when used in a fire. Fire glass is a wise financial investment because the one-time purchase of fire glass is likely to be the only purchase you will make on this product due to its durability. There will be no more ongoing log expenses. The glass, like any other product, may chip as a result of human mistake and maltreatment during transportation.
The manufacturing of fire glass improves the safety attributes that are perceived as positives by the majority of consumers. When fire glass is manufactured, it is tumbled and polished to remove any rough edges. Unlike conventional glass fragments, fire glass does not pop or crack during a fire. Other glass objects should never be used in a fire pit because they can break, pop, or blast fragments at unsuspecting guests. Fire glass is tempered glass that does not have any plastic additives that other forms of tempered glass may contain. Toxic gases can be generated by burning tempered glass, such as car windows, that is not specifically constructed for fire burning. Fire glass emits no smoke, poisonous gases, ash, or sparks. Because of these characteristics, you can use fire glass both indoors and outdoors without worry of a fire hazard to your home or children or pets nearby.
