  • What Wind Guard Works with Your Fire Pit?

    How to Determine What Wind Guard Works for You:

    Wind guards are designed to complement your fire pit as well as prevent the flame from blowing around excessively or blowing out all together. Wind guards are also used to prevent loose items from getting too close to the flame.

    All of our wind guards are made with tempered glass which ensures they are durable and built to last. We recommend having 2.5” of clearance on each side (5" total) between your fire pit opening and the wind guard for optimal performance. The wind guards are meant to sit on the outside of your fire pit opening.

    Installation is easy! Simply connect the tempered glass pieces together with the included brackets and support feet then set on the outside of your fire pit opening and enjoy. Continue reading

  • How to Convert a Wood Fire Pit to Gas

    How to Convert a Wood Fire Pit to Gas

    Reasons to Convert to a Gas Fire Pit

    Wood fire pits may be simple to install, but they’re not always the best option for those looking to install a fire pit at their home. Many urban developments restrict the use of wood fire pits due to safety concerns (an uncontrolled fire can spread dangerously). Beyond that, wood fire pits require the extra hassle of always having wood on hand to burn. This requires extra storage space, and because the wood is often stored outdoors, you’ll often find it’s wet and difficult to start a fire.

    There’s also the issue of smoke. Though nothing smells more like fall than a nice campfire, you don’t necessarily want to smell like one all day—which is exactly what will happen if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction as you burn.

    Designing a Propane Fire Pit

    Propane gas fire pits are becoming more common in residential settings given their convenient design.

For this reason, many consumers choose to fuel their fire pits using a standard propane tank.

    At Spotix, we’re often asked how long a propane tank will fuel a typical backyard fire pit. This answer will vary based on the size of your tank as well as the BTU rating of the fire pit burner. To calculate approximate burn times for yourself, we’ve put together this helpful guide. Consider grills as a point of reference, as these calculations will work for propane grills as well.
