Propane is an extremely efficient fuel source for your outdoor product, but did you know that if you lack the proper components during installation that your feature can display soot over time? Many people associate this black residue with the burn process of a wood fire, but propane is perfectly capable of producing soot if your feature isn't configured accurately. Join us for a special blog post on this matter and get a dose of #WednesdayWisdom!
Tempered fire glass is a non-toxic alternative to wood, which can give off smoke and ash when ablaze in your fire feature. When you burn with this everlasting and beautiful media, the glass reflects and radiates heat from the fire, without popping or exploding! Opt for a safer, more economic way to enjoy your fire feature!
The vibrant shades of fire glass add style to any gas fireplace or fire pit. The shiny tempered pieces come in almost every color imaginable, including blue, green, copper, gray, and multi-colored mixes. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor fire features! Find out more about our beautiful fire glass, including how to use it and how much you will need for your fire feature!
