Burner Systems

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

Match Throw Systems

Match Throw Burner System


  • Simple to operate
  • Available in burning spur and linear design
  • It can easily be converted to a manual spark igniter kit
  • Most economical Firegear burner system




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.

If you’d like to add a bit of automation to your fire pit, check out Firegear’s Manual 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

Thermocouple Manual Safety Burner System


  • 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




Firegear’s Thermocouple Manual Safety Ignition System offers the simplicity of a Match Throw system with the added peace 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, which is 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 an improvement from manual ignition without the added cost of a fully electronic ignition system.

Thermocouple Flame Sense

Thermocouple Flame Sensing Burner System


  • Remote control functionality
  • Compatible with home and pool automation systems using the AF-4000HAT
  • The fire pit industry’s only battery-operated electronic ignition system
  • Can be operated by up to three controls at the same time




If you’re looking for one of the safest and most convenient fire pits on the market, a Thermocouple Flame Sense kit should be near the top of your list. With its battery-operated electronic ignition system, this kit is in a class of its own. This system can also be connected to the AF-4000HAT Home/Pool Automation Transmitter, offering total control over your backyard.

The TFS System can also be connected to the TM-R-AF1TX, FG-WS or 1001D-AF1TX optional controls for customized operation of your fire pit. These fire pits can be connected to up to three transmitters at once.
