The fire pit below was build by Mike Phillips ( a customer). First he ran a propane line to the fire pit area and then blocked his fire pit into shape. We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) in an aluminum pan 24" x 24" with a double 18" double stainless steel ring.The glass that was used was gray with a gray base and gray reflective on top to add sparkle.
Below you can see the placement of the thermo coupler and safety pilot light used for propane.
Below on the right side the controls were installed in the bricks.
Below is one of our newest designs of fireplace pans. This one was designed by the customer for propane and they added remote control. This first pan will be made in Stainless Steel. We will finish this proto type in about 4 to 5 weeks and we will post pictures when we finish. These will be available in stainless steel, steel (painted or bare) or any other metal you desire.
The fireplace below is a propane fireplace with a Black base and Clear Diamonds on top. We built a pan to hold the glass with out the legs and covered/ protected the burner controls inside of the pan. The controls are on the right side and they are shielded and buried under the glass. The customer was going to finish the front of the steel pan after he installed it.
The fire pit below is in Marksville Louisiana and is at the Paragon Casino. The fire pit had an 18' fire ring installed in #304 stainless steel. The was done in and aluminum trough with 10 individual center feed burners. The gas line was a 1 1/2" and 5 lbs of pressure at 7" water column on natural gas. The ignition system is a Honeywell Infrared Flame Detection system. We will post more information on these larger fire features.
The big white ball is actually the Pearl of Louisiana.
Below is the fire ring in its trough surrounded by the water feature.
Below is one of the sections with the stainless steel burners. The complete feature is filled with water all around the fire ring.
The pan below is a stainless steel pan made to the same size as the fireplace. We installed a front curtain to hide the controls. This is a propane ventless burner pan. We will post pictures when the customer sends them to us after the installation.
We installed a 30" double burner in the middle. The maximum btu's on a ventless is 38,000 and any larger burner will make the flames much smaller.
Below the customer wanted sculpted front legs.
Below you see the front curtain in stainless steel.
and here you have it burning with out the glass
This stainless steel burner was designed and built by one of our dealers, Todd Janssen in Orange County, California. If you dream it, we can build it! This was build for a custom shaped fire pit.
The fireplace below was installed by George Foote who also built his own pan, great job! We supplied the burners and glass and George supplied the talent and labor. Great job George! The colors used were:
Starfire base glass,
Gray base glass,
and our Ice Ice Ice and you be the judge!
Before the pan and glass.
Here is the stainless steel pan that George built.
Start with Starfire.
Add some Azurlite.
and the rest of the colors for one nice design from George!
The ribbon burner below is made from 1/8" brushed stainless steel. The center was water jet cut and then we bent the two center fins down to install the ribbon burner with electronic ignition. The base plate measured 94" x 26" and was installed in San Diego, California. The architect is Kelly Crain of San Diego.
Hopefully we will be sent the finished pictures of the fireplace.
We can build these in any size, shape, material and in natural gas or propane.
This was tested in the shop with a minimal of 1/4 lb of natural gas. This burner is capable of at least an 18" ribbon burn. If you look in the center you will see the ignition head for the electronic ignition.
The fireplace below has a steel pan underneath to conceal the 12 volt remote control. We used a Clear base glass and topped it with a Starfire base glass and then added Amber Diamonds on the surface.
You can see the front plate that was painted to match which is removable if and when necessary to change the batteries. The legs were 4 1/2" and the pan was 2" tall. The removable front metal curtain was 6 1/2" tall.
Our products do not require any certification from the AGA, CSA or UL as it is considered a stand-alone product by these agencies. We are told that we would need a certification if sand and or lava rock would need certification. The agencies are franchise operations and they are privately owned and they are not a government agency. These agencies are hired for mass production testing and AGA, CSA and or UL do not certify custom one of a kind projects. Custom burners need no certification as this only applies to production equipment. Just so you can understand that a certification costs about $15,000.00 and certification was developed for production/ mass production to assure quality. Any parts that would normally need AGA or UL do in fact have these approvals. Parts with function need and should have some sort of approval. The pan burners we sell that do have UL, CSA and or any other listings are produced by other companies. The custom pan burners that we produce are just that, custom. Therefore do not require UL, CSA and or any other agency listings as these are custom. The parts that we use to build these pans are UL, CSA listed as they should be. We would never use any “Third World Country” or any unlisted, untested parts to build any products and or parts to endanger any product performance what so ever.
The fire pit below was built to the customers specs. It was 48" round, 10" tall with 8" legs and constructed from 1/4" aluminum. Then powder coated to match the customers request. We will fill in the details as we go.
Above you can see the cross grid to support the false bottom.
Above you can see the false bottom making it possible to fill it with a 2" fill over the ring.
A custom 42" stainless steel burner had to be built.
The center leg was for the gas and electrical for the electronic ignition
Hopefully we will get pictures of the fire pit installed on top of the water fall in New York.
The fireplace below had a steel pan built so we could conceal the 12 volt battery operated electronic ignition
beneath the pan. The glass that was installed was:
Clear base glass under the Starfire base glass Topped with Amber Diamonds.
Above and below you can see the solid cover as it hangs over the face to conceal the remote control ignition.
We built a set of fire stick for an architect "Woody Dike" on the Nipomo, California project (seen above) a few years ago. Then Woody contacted us to build a set for him. He even sent us a drawing and included a diorama!
Check it out and tell us what you think!
Here is the blue print:
Woody is over the top!
Above and below you can see the control valves at the bottom of the Fire Sticks.
Below after installing and fine tuning the gas flow they then covered the base with sand and then topped it with Black Magic and several toppers. Awesome job Woody!
The pan below was created by John Webber of San Diego. He made a cardboard mock up of what he wanted in his fireplace and we duplicated it in stainless steel. Here is John's fireplace now, our pan and we will posts pictures of the finished fireplace with our pan when John sends them to us. The glass that was installed in this pictures of the pan is Pink Rosa base glass.
The propane pan below has a brushed finish on the front metal shield. This is a two part shield, one to retain the fireplace glass and second to conceal the controls. This is part of the fireplace design that was asked for. The first pictures shows the front completely up.
The picture below shows the complete front dropped down to access the controls.
The burner below was a custom 14" hexagon designed burner by our customer for their fire pit.
The burner below is a propane ribbon burner with all stainless steel construction.
The pan and all around was filled with glass hiding/ concealing all of the workings.
A ribbon burner will mold all of the flames together making it look like a ribbon of fire.
The burner below is a rectangular burner specified by the customer.
For some reason they ordered 2 1/2" legs underneath, so we just did it!
Below you will see how simple it is to convert/ install a propane into your table:
This is our FPPK box with controls and air mixer calibrated to the burner we are using
