The fire pit below is in Newport Beach California at Newport Coast Development. We replaced a hot spark ignition which did not work, with our IPI (intermittent Pilot Ignition) electronic ignition system. The fire pit was 18" deep and 48" across. This is what was installed:
1 IPI Electronic Ignition for Natural Gas connected to a 1" gas line
1300 lbs crushed lava
144 lbs Clear base glass for a 2" fill over the crushed lava
36" triple stainless steel burner ring
20 lbs Clear Topper
20 lbs Cobalt Blue Topper
20 lbs Copper Blue Topper
We will show your from beginning to end:
Looked pretty nasty when we got there
We started to pour the crushed lava with our electronic ignition being raised to the surface by the lava rock
We built a double box to protect the equipment in the fire pit as well
The ring is now installed
The electronics can be accessed if ever there was a failure of the equipment and you can access it from the surface. Before the equipment was 20 inches below the surface, not a very good idea!
Now we poured the 144 lbs of Clear base over the crushed lava
We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!
Then we spread the Clear Topper, Cobalt Blue Topper and Copper Blue Topper over the Clear base
As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals as our toppers and toppings. We don't use "Recycled" glass, ever! We are actually the only company that produces Crystals for fireplace and fire pits.
We tried to get pictures of it burning, but the flames just didn't show. Look above and you can see a flicker in the daylight. Actually the flames were over 16" tall but you can't see this in daylight.The contractor will get a few night pictures when they and if they can.
The fireplace below was assembled by Nadine in Dallas Texas (Elegant Reflections USA) Great job on the skull! The base glass is Starfire and Black base makes up the skull. She also used Clear Diamonds and Clear Crystals from our Toppers.
You can see the Diamonds and Crystals around the outer edge for accents.
The burner below is one of our FPPK's (fire pit propane kit). With this FPPK we set it up for Black Magic! This was table tested for the pictures. Hopefully the customer will send us pictures after and during installation. We first sent these pictures for the customers approval. Here you go! The pan below belongs to Scott Spector and he finally installed the fire pit in his back yard, WOW, one really nice backyard!
This is one of our propane pan burner with slight modifications.
As you can see around the lower edges it was leaking and yes we did fix this.
The fire pit below was built by Scott Spector in Florida. He started with an FPPK 30 which includes a 30" base plate and a double 24" stainless steel ring. Here we go from the beginning:
The propane line was run/ installed under the pavers.
The colors that were used are
1/2" Clear base,
Black Magic in the center,
Cobalt Blue Topper,
Cobalt Blue Light Topper
and our FPPK 30". That is our 30" propane burner. You can see the actual burner above burning before shipment and installation.
We don't have any pictures of the fire pit burning at Scott's but he did tel us that when he fired it up again he would try to send us a few pictures. Thanks Scott.
