Outdoor Fire Pits and Safety

Filed Under: Fire Pits & Patio Heaters

Fire safety

When it comes time to actually start a fire, there are a few things to keep in mind, the most important of which is to keep your fire small. There’s no need for a blazing bonfire, and the bigger the fire, the greater the potential for disaster.

First things first, your fire pit should be at least 10 feet away from any structure or combustible surface. Before lighting an outdoor fire, check the weather forecast. Avoid windy conditions that can blow embers. Also stay up to date on any burn bans or burn ordinances that might be in effect at different times during the year. Doing some house cleaning, like picking up leaves and other combustible materials, around the pit is important to ensure the fire doesn’t accidentally spread. Always have a container of water nearby and a garden hose on standby before starting the fire.

To get a fire started, put a crumpled piece of paper or a store-bought fire starter in the pit, and cover one or both with small sticks — the smaller, the better. As the fire begins to burn, add larger and larger sticks until you’re finally able to add a log or two. But whatever you do, don’t try to start a fire with gasoline. It’s way too dangerous.

The best way to extinguish a fire is to take the ashes, spread them over a larger surface area and let them cool down for a little bit. Then take your small container of water and gently pour it over the ashes, but monitor it. Don’t just throw some water on it and go to bed because it can flare up in the night. If you have a fire that escapes your fire pit and moves into a nearby pile of kindling or a combustible surface, immediately call 911.

There’s no getting around the fact that wood burning and gas fire pits are by far the most favorite outdoor fire pits; there are also new fire pits on the market that use bio fuel. These fire pits can be taken inside to give a splash to setting where NG or LP fire pits are impractical.

Fire Glass

Filed Under: Design Ideas

American Fireglass Premium Azuria Reflective - 1/4"

Along with wonderful evenings in front of a fire pit comes the fun of choosing the right fire glass! Fire glass is a product which is designed to be used in a variety of gas fireplaces to cover the housing of the gas jets. It is also perfect to help reflect light and heat and give a neat lighting effect outdoors. Fire glass is designed as an alternative to rocks and fake logs which are often used in gas fireplaces.


AuthenTEAK carries a wide variety of colors in different shapes and sizes. Properly made fire glass has been tempered and specially treated so that it will be able to withstand high temperatures and prolonged exposure to heat. The pieces are usually around gravel sized, because larger pieces can be prone to cracking and exploding. Fire glass is also usually tumbled to soften the edges so that people will not be hurt by the glass if they come into contact with it.  Many questions arise about how much fire glass should be used…this depends on the depth and opening on the fire pit. For a round fire pit with a 16″ opening its recommended to use at-least 30 lbs of fire glass for complete coverage. Now when it comes to picking out fire glass the fun has just begun!

American Fireglass Classic Champagne - 1/4


Since fire glass comes in a variety of colors and sizes its great to mix and match to create a look that you want! At AuthenTEAK, we carry American Fireglass which is made in the U.S.A. American Fireglass is the premier manufacturer of fireplace and fire pit glass and there products offer a diverse selection of colors in tumbled Tempered Glass, Beads, Eco-glass and fire rock ranging in size from 1/4″ to 1/2″.

R&R Living Firepit

It’s hard to even think about firepits when it’s 99 degrees outside BUT fall will be right around the corner. Have you considered incorporating a firepit into your outdoor space? Hanging out on your deck or patio on a cool fall evening with friends, sipping wine and enjoying their company would be so much more memorable with a firepit. The firepit industry has evolved into a subset of the outdoor furnishing industry. Several manufacturers, including R&R Living and Urban Fire, have cornered the market with their high quality and unique designs. R&R Living is an American made product which is 100% eco-friendly.Their steel is coated with a revolutionary polymer which will not tarnish, bleach, or burn in the sun and will survive the elements. They recycle all the scrap metal from their manufacturing process, and their shipping pallets are made with recycled wood scraps. As a potential buyer of a firepit you must determine whether natural gas or liquid propane best suits your needs. Some designs are more appropriate than others for use with liquid propane so be sure to ask your salesperson for advice when considering what works best with your outdoor living space.
