The options are endless! American Fireglass provides a multitude of colors and size options allowing you to create a custom design. The glass is tempered for long-term heat consumption. Thanks to the process used in creating the glass, it burns cleaner and more efficiently than conventional gas logs. It will not melt, degrade, or emit toxic fumes. (This refers to the glass itself. You are still required to have your damper open when burning!) The fireglass will last virtually a lifetime. There is no soot, no ash and no smoke. With no popping embers to worry about, you can even remove those screens and glass doors that hinder your view. Then watch the colors dance! Now if you think this looks good in your fireplace, it is a show-stopper in an outdoor fire pit or as a decorative feature in your patio landscape.
The tumbling and polishing process used to create the FireglassTM ensures that there are no sharp edges and almost anyone can install it. Simply remove those old gas logs and clean out your fireplace. Wipe the surfaces clean with a dry cloth to remove any dust. Check your burner to make sure it is in proper working order and you're ready to fill.
An average fireplace will take between 50 and 75 lbs of glass. Using lava rock as a filler can cut down on the amount of glass needed and give you the same look. However, if you want to change the color for a party or on holidays, an all-glass installation is best. To calculate the amount of American FireglassTM you will need for your fireplace, call a Yardiac Representative, or visit our calculate page. We suggest placing a 2"- 3" thick layer of FireglassTM to get the Proper flame.
You will find some companies selling glass that is not specially formulated for use in fireplaces or fire pits. Those products will burn over time and may be harmful to your health; So, buyer beware. Ask before you buy!
