Outdoor Fire Pits and Fireplaces

Adding the visual element of flame to your outdoor entertainment space safely is easy with complete outdoor fireplace kits. Fire rings, fire pits, and fireplaces can be functional as well as decorative, adding a little warmth on a chilly evening. A fire invites family or guests to gather and promotes social interaction, whether it’s relaxed conversation or toasting marshmallows. You can choose a ring or a bowl to contain a wood fire, a traditionally styled fireplace with gas logs, or one of the many styles of propane fire pit tables.

Do you know of a clear coating that could be applied directly to a steel outdoor fire box and withstand the temperature a UV?
By eFireplaceStore on July 7, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, no. I have not come across a poly based coating that can be used in a high temperature application and the entire line of high temperature paint we carry will have a colored pigment of some sort added. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Is there any type of small gas fire pit I can use on a big, screened in porch?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 18, 2013

Answer:
A popular unit that can be used for this purpose is the Napoleon Patioflame Stainless Steel Outdoor Firepit. The unit requires only 72 inches of clearance to a ceiling and can be surrounded with decorative noncombustible material of your choosing.

I'm looking for a log lighter for an outdoor wood burning firepit. I just need it to start the fire. The inner diameter of the pit is 36".
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 19, 2014

Answer:
We do offer stainless steel log lighters for outdoor use, such as the Hearth Products Controls Straight Natural Gas Stainless Steel Log Lighter Burner Kit - 17 Inch, however we do not offer a model that is intended for a round wood burning fire pit. The manufacturer that we work with is able to radius the lighters slightly, but they do not have the ability to make a circular model. I apologize that we do not have other models available.

Can you give me the best heating option for a screened-in porch that is concreted?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 20, 2013

Answer:
Vent free gas fireplaces are definitely the most convenient and efficient option. A popular seller is the Loft Premium Contemporary Outdoor Gas Fireplace with Intermittent Pilot - 42 Inch. The modern look and high output should compliment the area well.

By Ian Howard from Bahamas on February 20, 2013
I'm looking for an outdoor firebox with the following dimensions: 60" wide x 48" high x 20" deep.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 20, 2013

Answer:
Our largest outdoor fireplaces are 44" models, though we have both a gas vent-free unit and a wood-burning model. You can see them below:

FMI Berlin Lights 44" Linear Vent-Free Outdoor Fireplace - Natural Gas

Monessen SB Outdoor Radiant Wood-Burning Fireplace with Herringbone Brick Liner - 44 Inch

By Thomas from Orlando, FL on March 21, 2013
I am designing an outdoor masonry fire pit with the interior of the fire pit wall finished with fire bricks. I want to paint the fire bricks black. Do you have a high heat black paint that would work in this situation?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 21, 2013

Answer:
While we do not offer any specialty paints that can withstand the temperatures of a woodburning fire, we do have options if you are using gas. Please see these recommendations for painting the interior of your fireplace:

Copperfield Black Gas Appliance Firebox Paint

Stove Bright Flat Black Paint

Please note these paints will not last more than a season or two before the heat of the flames will cause it to peel and crack. None of our paints will withstand direct contact to flames over time.

By Dale from OH on April 28, 2013
I'm looking for a patio mat that I can safely use my wood burning firepit on. Do you have one?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 29, 2013

Answer:
We do carry several deck mats that are designed to protect the area beneath a raised fire pit. An example is the Goods of the Woods 36 Inch Round Protective Deck Mat - Brown. Our other offerings can be seen by typing the phrase "deck mat" into the search bar on our website.

By Phillip from Houston, TX on October 23, 2012
We have a fireplace on an exterior wall. Behind the wall is an outdoor patio. Do you know of any 2-sided fireplaces that could be used in an indoor/outdoor application (such that one side opens inside the home while the other side opens onto an outdoor patio)?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 23, 2012

Answer:
Yes, please see the Majestic 42 Inch Echelon See-Thru Wide View Direct Vent Gas Fireplace. That unit must be installed with the Majestic See-Through Stainless Steel Outdoor Glass Facing Kit for an indoor/outdoor application.

By Larry on November 9, 2012
I am a contractor who is going to build a custom stone outdoor fireplace at an apartment complex. I need four sets of 36” stainless steel framed tempered glass doors to use, as this fireplace is open on all four sides. What models do you have that might work for outdoor use?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
You may consider something like this product: Fireplace Glass Doors These bi-fold doors are normally intended to be installed into an outdoor, manufactured fireplace. However, it would be possible to use the doors in conjunction with metal brackets for a custom project. I do not have any universal doors that are able to be installed outdoors. All models will be bi-fold manufactured doors, such as these. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Can the Napoleon fireplace model nopth31gtssp be converted to natural gas in Canada?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
The NPL-PTH31GTSSP can indeed be converted to natural gas, as Napoleon does make a conversion kit available for this purpose. On our site, on the item page, you would select "Natural Gas" in the "Choose Fuel Type" drop-down menu under the pricing information. Please note the (+109) is the price increase that will be added to the sale price for the natural gas conversion kit. Also, please note that as a US retailer, we are unable to ship Napoleon items to Canada. If you are interested in purchasing this unit from us, you would need to have a US shipping address. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

By Captain John on November 9, 2012
I am converting a wood burning fireplace to a vent free gas log fireplace. I want to cover the existing masonry block walls with red brick panels. The back wall is 25 inches and sidewalls are 18 inches. Is there a product that I can attach for a fresh new look?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
I am sorry but we do not offer a product like what you have described. We only carry universal replacement refractory panels for wood-burning fireplaces, but these are not suitable for use in a masonry fireplace. We apologize for the inconvenience.

By Jacob on November 9, 2012
I just built an outdoor hearth fireplace and am wondering which burner system to put in it. I would like to be able to use natural wood and fake wood.
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
In order to utilize both real and faux logs in an outdoor fireplace, you would need to utilize a stainless steel log lighter such as this one: Stainless Steel Log Lighter. This item is basically a single tube burner assembly that can be used to light real wood or can give the necessary ambiance to a faux log setup. It is also durable enough to handle the outdoor elements and being covered in ash for extended periods. Unfortunately, the more sophisticated outdoor gas log burners are not capable of being used with real wood. They are simply not durable enough to handle the ash, cinders, and heat of a real wood fire.

I'm looking for an outdoor see thru fireplace that utilizes propane and doesn't require a chimney. Do you have anything that meets this criteria? Thanks!
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on September 6, 2013

Answer:
Yes, the FMI Berlin Lights 44" Linear Vent-Free Outdoor Fireplace - Propane fits your needs perfectly.

What is the difference between and indoor fireplace insert and an outdoor fireplace insert?
By Will M. on February 24, 2016

Answer:
Outdoor fireplaces will be constructed of stainless steel to prevent rust and are tested to withstand outdoor conditions. If an indoor fireplace were to be installed outdoors, gas hearth systems would have frequent outages and both wood and gas systems would rust. While the result may not be immediate, standard steel construction would result in a fire over time. Additionally, indoor fireplaces installed in this fashion would never meet approval due to the lack of the appropriate outdoor listing. Subsequently, any damage resulting from installation would not be covered by insurance as all liability would be assumed by the homeowner.

I am looking for a Linear or Patio Flame unit for an outdoor firepit, 45-60" in length.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 26, 2012

Answer:
We carry both freestanding outdoor linear fire pits, like the Napoleon Linear Patioflame Gas Fire Pit, as well as linear fire pit kits that can be installed outdoors, like the Hearth Products Controls 60 Inch Stainless Steel Linear Trough Gas Fire Pit Burner Kit with Electronic Ignition.

We also have plenty of other options which you can see in our Fire Pit Burners section.

By Jay from Austin, TX on June 10, 2014
I am building an outdoor fire pit using a natural gas line from our built in grill. The outside dimensions are 3ft x 5 ft. We will use fire brick and layer the outside with stone. Since we are custom building this, we can make the inside opening as large or small as possible. I was thinking 10inch wide x 24 inches. My idea is to then fill in with fire glass. Could you suggest which parts I need as far as a burner is concerned? I can make the opening larger or smaller to fit whichever burner you think would be best. Also how deep should the opening be? Any other suggestions for parts or design we should consider are highly appreciated.
By eFireplaceStore on June 11, 2014

Answer:
You have a couple of options that will best work for your application. Either a rectangular or linear style of burner could fit your needs. Both units are a complete drop in type that uses a push button manually operated gas valve. The burners are housed within a pan that uses a mounting lip to allow the burner assembly to hang on the perimeter of the opening. This ensures the burner is recessed by only 1 1/2 inches, which is optimal for the best performance. The linear styles is approximately 5 inches wide by 24 inches long. It is the Hearth Products Controls 24 Inch Stainless Steel Linear Trough Gas Fire Pit Burner Kit with Manual Ignition. The H style burner is a newer item and has not yet been added to our site. Dimensions of that product is 12 inches by 24 inches. Please keep in mind the trough style will have a 50k BTU output, as opposed to 75k for the H style. The H style will have a 12 inch high flame, where the linear will have a 10 inch flame. The BTU requirements will likely make a difference on the size of the supply line you are running.

What type of fireplace could be used on a screened-in porch?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 11, 2012

Answer:
You would need a full stainless steel firebox for use in a screened porch, as the moisture in the outside air will eventually rust and corrode a standard metal firebox. Please see our full selection of stainless steel outdoor options, including woodburning and vent-free gas models:
Patio Fireplaces



Keep in mind that some localities may not allow backyard fires that generate smoke, so a gas-burning system may be the only choice. One of the best selling fire rings has an outdoorsy theme. On the other end of the spectrum is a rectangular fire pit that would be at home in the most elegant backyard. The variety available ensures that you can get something to match your taste as well as your budget. If you buy a complete kit, you will be able to install your new fire pit quickly and start enjoying it right away. You should choose a finish for your fire accessory that matches the rest of your décor. Metal enclosures are available, as well as stone and stucco. If you want to build a custom enclosure to match a grill island or some other feature of your space, parts are available for installation of the burner and the logs into an already existing structure. In order to choose the right model, decide whether heat production is an important feature for you, what size model would fit in the available space, and which style you love the most. With backyard fireplace kits, it’s easy to create that relaxing, inviting space you want!
