Firegear Logo

Overview

The full line of Firegear products are now available online at Spotix.com. With this new line comes outdoor fireplaces, fire tables, burner systems, and a variety of other accessories to help make sure the best room in your house isn’t in your house at all!

Background

Firegear products may be new to Spotix, but they’re no stranger to the market. Since 2013, Firegear has been owned by Skytech, manufacturers of some of the indoor hearth industry’s most popular and most trusted valve kits, remote control systems, and related accessories. Skytech’s knowledge of indoor fireplace products has translated well to Firegear’s product lines, making Firegear a leader in the outdoor hearth industry.

Firegear Fire Pit

Burner Systems

Perhaps most notable among Firegear’s line of products are its exceptional burner systems. Their Match Throw (MT), Thermocouple Manual Safety (TMS), and Thermocouple Flame Sense (TFS) offer even more premium choices for Spotix customers looking to complete their DIY backyard fire pit.

Match Throw Fire Pit Kit

Match Throw Systems

Highlights

  • Simple to operate.
  • Available in burning spur and linear design.
  • Can easily be converted to a manual spark igniter (MSI) kit.
  • Most economical Firegear burner system.

Summary
If you want simple but effective, a Firegear Match Throw Ignition Burner System may be just what you’re looking for. Turn on the gas, light a match, and enjoy your fire pit—it’s as easy as that. Simplicity also brings reliability when it comes to fire pits. Since there are no electronic components and very few “moving parts” to speak of, it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself with a broken fire pit (assuming you’ve installed everything correctly, that is).

If you’d like to add a bit of automation to your fire pit, check out Firegear’s Manal Spark Ignition Kit. You’ll have flame control right at your fingertips with the push of a button—and you won’t need to track down a lighter or matches!

Thermocouple Manual Safety Fire Pit Kit

Thermocouple Manual Safety

Highlights

  • Still offers the simple operation of a standard match light kit.
  • Available in burning spur or linear design.
  • Offers added safety in the form of a thermocouple safety valve.
  • Can be upgraded to a spark ignition system with ease.

Summary
Firegear’s Thermocouple Manual Safety Ignition System offers the simplicity of a Match Throw system with the added piece of mind offered by a safety valve. With its thermocouple safety valve, this fire pit can kill gas flow if it senses a loss of flame. This avoids the potential problems caused by pooling gas—particularly important with a propane system.

Much like the Match Throw fire pits, the Thermocouple Manual Safety fire puts can be upgraded using a Manual Spark Igniter Kit, offering a slight upgrade from manual ignition but without the added cost of a full electronic ignition system.
