Traditional Fire Glass
As you can see in the video above, this fire glass creates a contemporary sense of style to this fire bowl. A mix of eight different colors of fire glass achieves the look of sea glass. Warming Trends always recommends, and bids in, that you put two inches of 1/2"-3/4" aggregate at the base of the pan before applying two inches of glass to the top. This eliminates the need to fill the entire pan with glass saving you money on the cost of glass. This aggregate can be purchased at you local hardware store.

This video shows you how to install a Warming Trends Crossfire Burning System into a traditional, concrete ring, round fire pit. The installation can be done in one day and will help bring a warm glow to your patio.
This video features stacking concrete rings, sealing gaps with mortar, skim coating the surround of the fire pit and finishing with stone or stucco. The video also shows how to connect your gas supply line to the flex line and connect to the ignition system. After the system has been tested and ready for installation, we show you how to apply fire media and a gas log set to ensure achieving the best flame height.
*NOTE. Always test for leaks in the lines and compression fittings by spraying water on the connections to ensure there is no gas leak. If you see bubbles, reconnect the fittings with more pipe dope and test again otherwise you could have an explosion from leaking gas which could result in serious injury or even death.

Corroded Fire Rings After Just A Few Years
Warming Trends was recently called on to a job site to replace a traditional fire ring with one of our Crossfire Burning Systems for a fire pit. What we brought back was simply disturbing. As you can see in the photos above and below, this is what replaced. This fire ring was only a few years old and as you can plainly see, it has rusted and completely fractured from use.
