We’ll show you how to enjoy your outdoor area this winter season…
Fire pits offer an ambient atmosphere with their flickering light, crackling timber and warm radiant heat. As an alternative to the traditional wood fire pits there are also some great new models available fuelled by bioethanol, a readily available, environmentally friendly renewable energy that generates a beautiful orange flame with no smoke, no odour, no mess and no fuss.
Here are our 5 simple tips for incorporating fire pits into your outdoor space:
For small space gardens make sure the diameter of the fire pit is no more than 60cm. The radiant heat of fire pits can warm up an area 2m x 2m very quickly. You don’t want to sit too close to the fire.
Tiles or paving under a wood burning fire pit is an ideal surface. Grass or timber decking will need a protective stand and tray to stop scorching from the heat.
If your fire pit is left out in the rain, make sure it has a drainage hole to allow any water to drain. We also recommend you use a collection tray underneath the fire pit to collect any ash or charcoal debris.
Make sure your fire pit is cast iron or has a heat resistant painted finish as the fire pit surface will get extremely hot.
Make sure that adults are always present when the fire pit is operational and keep children and pets out of potential harms way. Also, before you go to bed make sure you snuff out the hot embers with water or sand.
