Fire Pit Glass Media
About Fire Glass & Fire GemsFire glass is a great alternative to the traditional look of gas logs. It is used to cover the burner in a gas fireplace or fire pit, which spreads out the flame to create a satisfying fire. Both stylish and contemporary, fire glass creates a dazzling effect that intensifies the flame. Fire glass is affordable, safe, virtually maintenance free and never needs replacing.
Fire glass is tempered glass made specifically for use in gas fireplaces and gas fire pits. It is manufactured to withstand high temperatures while retaining heat. Unlike “regular” glass (which should never be used in a fireplace or fire pit), fire glass will not melt, explode, smoke, or collect soot.
Fire glass is typically available in 1/4" and 1/2" sizes. It comes in an assortment of colors, both reflective and non-reflective. The main difference between these two is that the reflective glass has a polished mirror finish on one side that reflects more light. The non-reflective glass sparkles more uniformly for an even looking color and flame. Fire glass is also available as gems and nuggets. These come in lots of colors and are larger and smoother than the other glass pieces.
