PICKING THE RIGHT GAS FIRE BURNER

WHICH FIRE PIT BURNER DO I NEED?

Your burner is the more important part of your fire feature. It determines how large and powerful of a flame you will produce. We recommend Warming Trends Burners because they are the best on the market. Size, BTU output, style, and shape are all up to the design and fuel source available in your outdoor space.

OUR BEST SELLING BURNER

The Warming Trends 180,000 BTU CrossFire Burner is by far our best-selling burner for a number of reasons. It produces beautiful, natural-looking flames with enough heat to warm both large and small spaces. It is made from durable, long-lasting brass construction. The shape and size are customize-able to your fire pit project.

SIZING FOR BURNER PLATES

WHAT SIZE BURNER PLATE DO I NEED FOR MY FIRE FEATURE?

A fire feature project can get derailed quickly if the burner plate doesn't match the burner size or fire pit dimensions. The plate not only protects your burner but also provides a holder for your fire media. Learn how to choose the right size burner plate for your fire feature.

FUEL TYPES FOR FIRE FEATURES

SHOULD I USE NATURAL GAS OR LIQUID PROPANE FOR MY FIRE PIT?

Location can help you determine if liquid propane or natural gas is the best option for your fire feature. If you are not able to run a natural gas line to your fire pit then liquid propane gives you a broader range of location options. They both burn clean and produce a high-quality flame so you can't go wrong!

DIY FIRE PIT | FIRE MEDIA

WHAT'S THE BEST FIRE MEDIA FOR MY FIRE PIT?

Fire media puts the finishing touch on your fire feature design. Go rustic with river rock, cozy with ceramic logs, modern with fire glass, or classic with lava rock. There's a lot of techniques and tricks to maximizing your fire media. Which will you choose?

Our most popular fire media is fire glass. It has taken off as a preferred finishing touch to most fire feature designs. Fire glass offers vibrant color and bright flames with a contemporary feel. It works as well with classic fire pits as it does with modern fire features. Find out why everyone loves it for yourself!
