This 42 Inch Stainless Steel Fire Pit Insert has been designed with durability and affordability in mind. This fire pit insert is made of durable 304 18 gauge stainless steel, typically used in enclosures that have a recess mount and internal sidewalls for fire pit media. Weep holes have been drilled in the pan to allow for water drainiage, to keep the plate from rusting. 

This unit houses a 36 inch stainless steel penta star burner. There a few benefits of the penta shaped burner, one is that the burner hole ports are staggared so your burner uses less fuel saving you money in the long run.

How Hot Surface Ignition Works:

  • Start up: This is done by use of a wall switch or remote control. When the "On" command is received, the system completes initial safety checks then starts flow of pilot gas. After 5 seconds the hot surface igniter glows igniting pilot flame. When the system confirms pilot flame is present, the main burner gas will flow and be ignited by the pilot flame.
  • Operation: While sitting and enjoying the look and feel of your fire pit, the system is at work monitoring the status of the flame, internal temperatures, voltage and other safety parameters. If the flame happens to go out the system will turn off all gas flow, and then restart by automatically commencing the START sequence.
  • Shut Down: To turn OFF the fire pit simply use wall switch, remote control or whole house system.

We recommend that you read your manual thoroughly for additional operating specs and safety features.
