My fireplace is average size, how much fireplace glass product would it require for my fireplace?
Let me help, this is actually very simple to find out precisely how much fireplace glass product is required for your fireplace. You will need a tape measure and a calculator.
Measure the opening width of your fireplace, take note of measurement
Now measure the depth of the fireplace, measure from the front of the firebox to the back wall, take note of measurement. Get your calculator and multiply the width (inches) x depth (inches)
Multiply the total x 4
Divide total by 30
Total number represents how many lbs. Of fireplace glass product are required.
Can any gas fireplace be switched over to glass?
When installed as directed on our installation link the glass will never melt, burn or discolor in a fireplace or fire pit that utilizes natural gas as it's fuel source under normal use. (Click here if you have propane)
Is there any clean up or maintenance required?
Do I really need a custom burner pipe with this product?
No you do not, however we have designed double burner pipes that are custom to the size of your fireplace giving you a much more balanced flame. Also the double pipe creates a more natural look with two lines of fire working together vs. Just one line of fire which looks generic. Our double pipes produce twice the heat without increasing gas usage. The bottom line is with our double pipe you get more flame, more heat and more sparkle.
What colors are available in the fire pit glass and fireplace glass product?
I don’t know which color to choose?
Most of our clients choose three or more colors and mix them up to create a custom look. For example clear black and bronze ties in any wood tones or stone (especially granite) and has a subtle touch of gold. If you are looking for something a little brighter you may consider clear, a hint of black for contrast and sapphire blue, this is more of an ice jewel look. That is the beauty of having so many colors to choose from you can create something custom and unique to fit your style.
Do I have to mix the colors?
No, some people just want one solid color; we can accommodate custom orders of any size.
What is the reflective glass?
Our reflective fireplace glass is stunning. It simply has one reflective side (like a mirror) people love to accent or highlight with this. Not only does it look beautiful when the fireplace is lit but also when it is not as it reflects the natural light in the room, giving the fireplace an incredible sparkle even when not in use.
Do I need a screen or doors on my fireplace to use fireplace glass?
No. Our fireplace glass product does not burn; there are never any popping cinders or ashes that will be emitted from your fireplace. Most people remove the screens because they are not necessary and their rusted filthy appearance clashes with the sparkle of the fireplace glass. Doors are optional, some people remove them, and some people like to keep them to prevent pets and children from exploring in the fireplace.
Does this product really produce more heat?
Yes, Our fireplace glass product produces more heat than artificial log sets and lava rocks- The heat created is comparable to a real wood fire without leaving the mess of burnt ash and soot behind to clean up. In addition the glass does not pollute the environment like a wood fire which helps preserve our natural resources.
Do I need a special burner when using propane?
Pan Burners are suggested for use with propane. A pan burner is strongly suggested when using propane to prevent the gas from sinking and collecting underneath the surface, this is a common hazard with propane since propane is a heavier gas then natural gas. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT- Not using a Pan Burner with Propane could cause an explosion in your fire pit. We also suggest using an LP Converter with propane as this will mix oxygen into the gas prior to burning which helps reduce the weight of the gas and burns cleaner reducing carbon build up. What is an LP Converter?
