Gas fireplaces are a great alternative to wood-fueled features. They give the same look and feel as wood-burning models, but with less hassle. No more trying to start fires with newspaper and kindling, no chopping and hauling logs to burn, and certainly no worries about flying sparks and embers! Simply relax, sit back, and enjoy the fire again! With our variety of gas-burning fireplaces, you can choose the design, size, and type of media you prefer (fire glass or stones)! Get the most enjoyment out of the night air this season and bask in the ambiance that only Fireside Expressions can deliver! Let us help you create the ultimate backyard living space of your dreams!

The outdoor fireplace experts at Fireside Expressions are standing by to help you choose the perfect accent for your landscape domain. Our gas burning fireplaces are safe to use with fire glass and lava rock - let us help you calculate the correct amount of fire media you will need.

PLEASE NOTE: Because propane is heavier than natural gas, it will sink to the bottom of your feature. Small pieces of fire glass will not allow propane to circulate, and this can lead to the explosion of this particular media. Even with larger fire glass pieces, there is still not enough room for the gas to dissipate from wind and other factors. Lava rock allows propane to dissipate and is the safest choice for your gas feature. (In addition, it is always a good idea to incorporate lava rock into the bottom portion of natural gas burning features.)

We would love to hear your design ideas, and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Give us a call at 1-888-986-1535, and let's get started on your outdoor fireplace project today! Please visit our Info Center for a downloadable manual and answers to frequently asked questions.

We recommend covering the burner with a layer of cinders/lava rock. These should be 1" diameter or larger. Glass should then be used as a topping over cinders/lava rock to approximately 2” in depth. This helps save material, money, and allows for safer operation.
