Fireglass is very safe. There are no sharp edges, it is not made with chemicals and it burns cleaner than gas logs. Homeowners with small children will want to make sure that the children do not have access to the fireplace or the Fireglass. Fireplace Screens or Fireplace Glass Doors are recommended in such cases.
Does the Fireglass get consumed?
No, the Fireglass is reusable and if used correctly, should last a lifetime. Please note: the glass itself does not burn! You ignite the fire pit by using a lighter and opening the gas valve. The gas emitting from the fire pit burner underneath the fireglass is what burns when using a gas fire pit.
Where can I use Fireglass?
Fireglass is designed for use only in a gas fireplace or gas fire pits. It is not for intended for wood burning units.
How much does Fireglass cost?
Fireglass is sold by the pound and the price is determined by which color or colors you select. You can purchase Fireglass at Woodland Direct.
Does the Fireglass get hot?
Yes! The Fireglass does get hot - don't touch it! After the fire has been turned off, the top layer of Fireglass will cool while the bottom layers will continue to radiate heat.
What types of Fireglass are there?
There are many varieties of Fireglass allowing you to create a display that is uniquely yours. Lava Rock is generally used for filler with a more vivid Fireglass on the top. It comes in small and large and is an inexpensive way to fill up the space in a firepit or fireplace. Filler Fireglass comes in a large variety of colors and is generally a bit more expensive than Lava Rock but will give you a more decorative appearance. It is usually used as a filler with a more vibrant color placed on top. Accent Fireglass is the most brilliant in color of all of the selections of Fireglass available. Generally, it is a bit more expensive so as long as you plan on leaving the glass as you originally design it, you’ll use it just for a top layer.
What kind of glass is used?
Fireglass is made from "tempered" glass, meaning that is heat treated for high strength. It is designed to withstand high temperatures without breaking, fading or significantly changing colors.
How much Fireglass do I need for my fireplace?
We have provided a Fireglass Fireplace Calculator to give you the recommended amount of Fireglass in pounds. Best results are when a thickness of 4" of Fireglass is used in the fireplace. This is typically enough to cover the gas pipe and results in a beautiful flame. Fireplaces that are level with the floor can have a fill level of 1/2" at the opening of the fireplace that slopes up to 4" at the rear of the fireplace.
Can I use my existing fireplace?
You can use your existing fireplace if it is setup for gas burning. If you have a wood burning fireplace you must first convert it to a gas fireplace and then add the Fireglass.
How do you install Fireglass?
Installation is very simple.
- Thoroughly clean your fireplace.
- If you are painting the inside of the fireplace, cover items surrounding
your fireplace so no paint overspray gets on them.
- Make sure that the gas is working properly.
- Pour in the Fireglass slowly, pouring front to back.
- If you are using a Accent Fireglass as a topping, pour that on after the Filler using the same method.
- Removal of the glass can be done at a later time using a shop vac.
Yes! A very simple and cost effective way to dramatically improve the inside of your fireplace is to purchase a heat resistant paint. Any color will work fine, however, black seems to be a favorite. Care should be taken during painting: items near the fireplace should be covered and protected from paint overspray.
Can Fireglass be used with Gas Fire Pits?
Absolutely! Fireglass works the same way in Fire Pits as it does in Fireplaces.
Are there other materials I can use for filler besides Fireglass?
We do not recommend other fillers for fireplaces. If you decide to again use your gas logs or move from the home, it will be very difficult to reuse the Fireglass once it has been mixed with other materials, such as sand. For large fire pits, you may want to substitute glass with Lava Rock or pea gravel as a filler. Filling a large fire pit can be expensive.
Does the fireplace flue need to be opened when I am burning the Fireglass?
Yes. Anytime your fireplace is in use, there must be ventilation.
Can you clean the Fireglass?
Yes. Use a shopvac to remove the Fireglass from the fireplace and simply clean with water and replace.
Whether you’re looking for a great way to freshen up your gas fireplace or update your home or backyard, you’re going to love Fireglass! Not only is it very trendy and attractive but it is also virtually maintenance free ending those hours of pesky fireplace cleanup.
There is no soot, ash, or smoke with Fireglass which means no messy cleanup. Since there are no popping embers to worry about you can even remove your screen or glass doors for a truly modern, clear view. Of course, there will still be hot flames so if you have little ones around you may want to keep it there until they’re a bit older. The state of the art manufacturing process eliminates sharp edges so you won’t have to worry about cuts when handling the glass. It does get hot, so you will have to make sure you don’t touch it after burning. The glass is tempered for long-term use and burns cleaner and more efficiently than conventional gas logs and will not melt, degrade, or emit toxic fumes. Every bag of Fireglass is clean and free of debris and water. As long as the Fireglass is used properly it will never discolor, soot, burn, or degrade. It really is made to last a lifetime.
With Fireglass, your decorative options are endless! An average fireplace takes about 75 pounds of Fireglass, but there are calculators to help you estimate how much will work for your particular situation. Placing a 2-3” thick layer is generally recommended to get the best flame. Most people choose Fire Rock or Filler Fireglass to fill the majority of the space, since it’s cheaper than Accent Fireglass and the top layer is the only visible layer. The only difference is that Accent Fireglass is more vivid in color but it is a bit more expensive. If you’re going to be changing out your Fireglass regularly for parties or holidays it might be easier to use all Accent Fireglass so you won’t have to pick through it to get it out in order to replace it.
When it comes to Fireglass, installation is a cinch! Simply remove the old gas logs and clean out your fireplace using a dry cloth to remove any dust. Check your burner to ensure it is working properly or purchase a new one and you’re ready to fill. Pour the Filler Fireglass into the bottom of the fireplace and then spread the Accent Fireglass over top for a finished, affluent appearance.
Whether you’re looking to create a relaxing atmosphere or looking for an eye catching display, Fireglass is sure to impress.

Most outdoor fireplace can be used as both gas burning and wood-burning. Many of them will give you the option of which way you would like them to be set up when you place your order.
Most people enjoy wood-burning fireplaces. There is nothing like the smell of wood burning or the crackling noise it gives as it burns. While it can bring back past memories of camping and other outdoor activities for some, it can be a hassle for others. For starters, you will need to gather your own wood and make sure that it is dry and properly seasoned so it will burn well. Secondly, there is the clean up factor. You will always want to clean up after your wood-burning fire pit once the ashes have cooled down. It is not a good idea to keep burning fires over the previous fires remnants. However, if you love the sound and smell of a “real” fire, then you definitely want to have a wood-burning fire pit.
You will also always want to be careful when using your wood-burning fire pit. Sparks can stray and you definitely do not want to be in its line of fire.
Additional safety tips for wood-burning:
1. Check local ordinances regarding outdoor burning.
2. Never use lighter fluid or gasoline to ignite your wood.
3. Make sure to burn only seasoned wood.
Although a gas fire pit lacks the reality of a true fire, it can still put out a very convincing flame. However, a gas fire pit will heat consistently, unlike a wood-burning fire. Maintenance is minimal compared to all the work that goes into taking care of a wood-burning fire. The convenience of it is what makes it so appealing to many people. Anybody who enjoys the warmth and ambiance of flickering flames, but doesn’t want the hassle of buying wood and cleaning ashes should consider a gas fireplace.
When it comes to choosing an Outdoor Fireplace the possibilities seem to be infinite. It’s definitely not hard to see that everyone should have one and it will be no problem to find just what you want. There are endless options from small outdoor firepits to outdoor firepit tables to complete outdoor fireplace units. One of the most important decisions you’re going to have to make is the type of fuel you want to use in your new outdoor fireplace. Generally, your options are natural gas, liquid propane, or wood – all are good choices but you’ll want to make an educated decision since you’re going to have to stick with it until it comes time to upgrade your outdoor fireplace. This article will explore the primary differences between liquid propane and natural gas, wood will be reviewed in a future article.
The basic differences between liquid propane and natural gas are portability, compression, energy efficiency, and cost. To most people the most important differences between Natural Gas and Liquid Propane are going to be convenience and cost. The choice is definitely yours and is based primarily on preference and what you plan on using it for, we could go either way one this one. Generally, there is no difference when it comes to performance in appliances for heating or cooking. Natural Gas is convenient since you will no longer have to worry about running out of gas in the middle of your big family reunion. However, that will require that you keep your grill in one spot near the gas connection, moving the firepit to another part of the yard will not be an option. With Liquid Propane you have the ease of toting the firepit anywhere as long as it’s a portable grill. However, you also have to tote a large propane tank around with you and make sure you have enough to last through your party or trip or you’ll be making a last minute run to the local gas station. Please see the following table for a simple break down of the basic differences between Liquid Propane and Natural Gas (click on it to see it larger). State safety departments have written laws concerning the use of gas appliances. These laws are not consistent across the country. The best source of information concerning your local regulations would be the state regulatory agency involved.
It is imperative to remember to NEVER pour water on your fire to extinguish it. The drastic change in temperature is not good for the fire pit and can result in breakage or deterioration of it.
It is also very important to remember that you need to keep your fire pit covered once it has cooled and is no longer being used. A cover will protect the pit from all forces of nature and prevent any rusting or damage from being done. If you live in an area where there are harsh winter conditions, it is recommended that you store your fire pit in a dry, sheltered area. This will keep your fire pit in prime condition, prevent it from any cracking or weathering, and allow it to be of use for countless years to come.
When cleaning out your fire pit, first make sure that the ashes have cooled enough to handle. Generally, this should be done the day after your fire has gone out. When removed, make sure to seal the ashes in a closed non-combustible container. You don’t ever want to start a new fire among old ashes because it will just make a bigger, harder to clean mess for you the next time you plan to clean it out.
To prevent any big messes and tough clean up jobs – refrain from placing any plastic or other material objects that will melt into the fire. This will help keep your fire pit looking new and lasting longer!
There is nothing more relaxing than enjoying a fire on a cool evening outside. Your fire pit is a luxury item that is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends.
