Can fire glass be used with a bio-ethanol burner?
By eFireplaceStore on August 14, 2014
Answer:Unfortunately, there will be limitations for this kind of installation. Ethanol burners are generally stainless steel fuel trays with no screen over them. Fire glass could be used in the area around the burner, but there are not separation screens available through the manufacturers we work with that would allow you to cover the burner. Also, testing has not been performed to evaluate the effect of the biofuel byproducts contacting the glass. It is possible that soot or other byproducts could be released.
Outdoor fireplace glass is a type of glass that has been specially designed for use with gas fire pits, fireplaces, and outdoor burners. A unique tempering process allows these glass fireplace gems to withstand prolonged exposure to high heat without cracking, fading, or producing any unpleasant odors. The unique construction of fireplace glass also makes it possible for you to use the same glass in both your indoor and outdoor fireplaces.
Architectural fireplace shapes, like fireplace glass, are intended to help you create a totally unconventional hearth. One of the major attractions of fireplace shapes and stones is their flexibility. They can be used most types of outdoor gas fireplaces and fire pits, and you have complete freedom when it comes to arranging them. Many people choose to display them in conjunction with fireplace glass.
