Rectangular Drop In Tray with Spark Ignition System and Gas Connection Kit

We all have different ideas of how we want our custom gas fire pit to look, and what materials it will be made from. Common to all fire pits though, are the burners and a method to fit them. Utilizing an American Fireglass Stainless Steel Drop In Tray has to be one of the most easily installed systems available.

Why Use A Drop In Tray?

There are three good reasons to use a tray with an integral burner in your fire pit:

1. If you are using Propane to fuel your system then it is generally considered best practice to use a tray, and may in fact be a requirement of local codes.

Why? Propane is heavier than air, so once it is released through the gas ports of the burner, its natural tendency is to sink lower. The tray contains the propane gas in a limited area and helps ensure that it is all burned off efficiently, reducing the risk of pockets of unburnt gas collecting in the fire pit structure.

2. It is very simple to install a tray. During the construction of your fire pit structure, build in a ’shelf’ on which the tray can sit and that’s it. All the plumbing is hidden out of sight below the tray, and it is very easy to remove for maintenance.

 3. The tray is a great container for your fire pit media, be it fire glass or lava rock, holding it securely, and not allowing it to spill over.

The Manual Spark Ignition System

A battery powered Push Button Spark Ignition Systems means that there is no need to be running a mains electricity cable out to you fire pits location. Simply bolt the spark probe vertically onto the base of the tray in the provided location, and connect the supplied cable to the back of the push button unit you have fitted into your custom made 'control panel'. For convenience, we recommend installing the push button next to the Shut Off Key Valve supplied with your kit. Turn on the gas, push on the button, and you have fire! No matches blowing out, no damp tapers not lighting. This is the civilised way to light your fire pit!

Pro Tips To Help You Get The Best From Your Fire Pit Kit

- Ensure you have sufficient gas pressure to 'power' your burners BTU rating

- Don't forget to provide ventilation in your fire pit structure, at least 16 sq. in. on two opposing sides

- If using Propane ensure the venting is at the lowest point in the structure

- With Propane it is better to use 1/2" size fire glass

- If possible set your drop in tray at least 2" below the top of your fire pit structure ( to avoid the wind extinguishing your flame )

- Re: Above, if not possible use a fire pit wind guard

- Use a qualified Gas Technician

- Check your local codes regarding gas fire pit usage, it may have to be inspected and licensed

- For a more detailed explanation of any of the above, please see our Tech Tips section

“Fire Pit Wind Guard. Adds elegant look to our firepit. Looks nice and adds a nicer touch to our firepit. It didn't come with any instructions, so I just had to figure it out by looking at the photo on the box. It isn't a perfect fit for our firepit, even though I measured, but it works ok so I'll keep it.”

“ Rectangular Fire Pit Wind Guard. It looks great. Feels solid. Thanks for the rubber feet. Do wish you had glued the tiny cushions to the tightening screws -- it was a little unhandy when I had to remove them and then set them all back in place before I could insert the glass. No biggie, just a customer satisfaction nit.”

“Rectangular Gas Fire Pit Drop In Tray and Burner. Great burner set up. This burner works really well and is a great set up for the $. I got quotes for similar burners costing 3-5x as much. I filled the tray and around it with lava rock and put gas logs on top. My fire pit looks so natural that at first glance people think it’s a real wood fire ”

“The fire glass was better than you can imagine! ”

Anon 11th Mar 2017

“We built a custom outdoor "fire table" this summer and after installing a 48x6 burner it soon became apparent that we would also need a wind guard. With the flames down low any breeze would blow them over the side of the pan and cause soot marks. A higher flame and higher wind made 'downwind' diners wish they didn't have a beard! I was concerned with how well glass would survive shipment, when our package arrived there was no need for any concern. The wind guard is shipped ready for assembly and EXTREMELY well packaged. It comes in a custom built wooden shipping box with internal foam packing and small cork pieces to keep everything safe, secure, and well separated. Once unpacked it took all of five minutes to assemble, screwdriver is the only tool needed. We are very satisfied with the wind guard for our linear burner ”

“Beautiful custom Fire Pit, that's just my style. The drop in fire pit kit allowed me to custom design my fire pit to reflect my style. The spark ignition is like magic, all I have to do in push the button and the fire appears. There's no need for a hand held lighter or matches. I must thank The Magic of Fire for a speedy delivery. I made the deadline, yeah! ”
