    Fireplace Embers & Rocks

    A real wood fire doesn't just have burning logs. As the fire continues it creates a bed of glowing coals and embers as the logs begin to fall apart. You can create that same look in a gas fireplace by including chips and chunks made from ceramic fiber or volcanic rock that will have a natural glow as they are heated by the fire. The glowing embers also increase the heat production of the fireplace, since the chunks capture heat and then radiate it into the room. A variety of fireplace rocks and glowing embers sizes and finishes are available to complement the unique design of your fireplace.

    We have recently had a ventless fireplace unit installed. Brand: Everwarm Do you sell the lava rocks for ventless units?
    1 Answers
    As lava rock is used around the burner pan for decoration and not atop the burner, any lava rock would be appropriate. Any ventless system should arrive with any media intended for use directly atop the burner, so the ember material should have been included. Please study the log and ember placement instructions included with your log set for further clarity. If any media was missing, please contact your dealer for a warranty claim.

    Can you use the fireplace embers in an outdoor fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Outdoor gas logs and fireplaces with an ember burner will also include an ember screen to hold the ember material in place.

    What's the difference between "embers" and "cinders"?
    1 Answers
    Glowing embers are placed in dime-sized pieces atop a vented gas log burner while cinders, lava rock, and volcanic rock, etc., are placed around a vented or ventless burner on the hearth floor for decoration. If you have a vented burner installed in a wood burning (masonry or prefabricated) fireplace, the ember material is somewhat universal. If you have a prefabricated gas fireplace or ventless gas log set, you must use the part number associated with the ember material described in the installation manual.

    I have a Majestic DV580 model fireplace and the ember material needs to be replaced. Do you carry the type that I need? Also, is it possible to update from the ceramic logs that I have now?
    1 Answers
    I have spoken to the manufacturer and they have advised the original ember pack for the DV580 has been discontinued. However, our Rutland Log Bright Replacement Glowing Embers for Gas Logs - 12 oz. Tub can work in place of the original ember material. I have also confirmed with the manufacturer that only ceramic logs where an option for your model. There was not an adapter kit made that would allow you to substitute alternate media.

    I have a 42" Majestic Echelon 34,000 BTU contemporary fireplace. Can I safely add additional ceramic rocks on top of the ones I already have?
    1 Answers
    There should not be any issue with adding additional ceramic rocks, so long as you do not allow stones to sit directly on the burner ports or in the flame, and keep the rear vent area open to allow air to circulate under the stones.

    We currently have the Napoleon BDG48 and I would like to switch out some of the logs for river rock and driftwood pieces. Is this possible?
    2 Answers
    There should not be an issue with swapping some of the logs with driftwood and ceramic stones, as long as the accessories do not directly impinge the flame as it exits the burner. This model is no longer in production, but I will check to see if there was a rock adapter kit made for this unit.
    on December 4, 2014
    I have confirmed that the manufacturer did not offer a rock adapter kit like they do for newer models. As previously mentioned, it should not be a problem to place ceramic stones around the burner ports, just as long as there is no direct impingement of the flame. I apologize that there is not a purpose built adapter for this model.

    How can I hide the gas line, gas valve handle, and burner controls on my ventless gas fireplace?
    1 Answers
    The most common method is the use of granules or lava rock. Depending on the size and shape of the components to be hidden, it's possible that a sheet metal cover could be fabricated.

    Our Majestic gas fireplace seems to have lost the material that used to cover the burner plates. Majestic calls these "ember material" and "ceramic ember rocks." We still have plenty of the lava rock that goes outside the burners. Do you carry a suitable replacement for the two materials?
    1 Answers
    We do carry universal ember wool that can be used in many applications, but for the best appearance, it is ideal to use the original type of material. If you would like to provide the model number of your unit, I can check availability of the original ember material.

    My home was built in 1986, and has a gas log fireplace with a vent. The embers (sort of woolen fiber) underneath the grate look like they are degrading and I would like to replace them. What should I use?
    1 Answers
    The Real Fyre Ember Glow - EM-1 can be used as replacement embers for most models of vented fireplaces and gas log sets. The material can be pulled into small strands and positioned as you wish to give maximum effect.

    I have an Emberglow vent free natural gas fireplace. I want to replace the lava rocks on the fireplace floor and the glowing embers. What do yo you recommend? Do you have anything in stock?
    1 Answers
    We do offer replacement lava granules that can be used with any vent free appliance. However, the embers are specific to vent free appliances and must be formulated to not release harmful emissions. The granules that can be used are the Real Fyre Lava-Fyre Granules - LF-10. The embers for the set should be obtained directly from the manufacturer, as they will be able to supply the proper type and quantity of embers.

    I am looking for glowing embers to place on the burners of my vent free log set. I lost some of the ember material when vacuuming my log set. All the ember material I've seen is for vented log sets. What can you recommend for the vent free logs?
    1 Answers
    While we do not sell any universal glowing ember kits for vent-free log sets, if you reply with the manufacturer and model of your unit, we may be able to obtain a factory replacement for you.
