Fire Glass

Create a shimmering "fire and ice" display with our American-made fire glass! This is a stunning alternative to traditional log sets in your fire feature. The cut and texture of each individual tempered fire pit glass piece direct the natural fluidity of the flame as it graces the prisms below. Your fire feature will go beyond the definition of beauty when you embellish it with your choice of colored glass.

We have a vast collection of 1/4 to 1/2 inch fire glass colors, available in packages by weight and in your choice of 10 colors. You'll find a rainbow of solid colors as well as the attractive Sunshine Mix, featuring a variation of red, amber, yellow and orange tempered glass. Our reflective blue fire glass is certainly unique in nature. A layer of reflective material is embedded into each piece of fire glass, appearing transparent from certain angles and much shinier when viewed straight on!

When you add fire glass jewelry to your approved outdoor feature, enjoy these benefits:

  • Outdoor approved and non-toxic! 
  • It does not produce soot, smoke, ash, or fumes of any kind.
  • Tumbled, tempered fire glass can withstand temperatures up to 1300° degrees!
  • Allows gas from the burner to flow effortlessly through your fire feature, without impeding the look and quality of the flames.
  • Colors can be mixed and matched to liven up your feature.
  • Enjoy the glittering display, even during daylight hours!

It can be tricky to figure out how much fire glass is appropriate for use in your fire pit or fire bowl. For help with this matter, check out our handy glass calculator below! 

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, fire glass can be used with natural gas burning features ONLY & colors may differ slightly than what is shown online. Because propane is heavier than natural gas, it will sink to the bottom of your feature. Small pieces of fire glass will not allow propane to circulate, and this could lead to an explosion of this particular media. Even with larger fire glass pieces, there is still not enough room for the gas to dissipate from wind and other factors. Lava rock allows propane to dissipate and is the safest choice for your gas feature. (In addition, it is always a good idea to incorporate lava rock into the bottom portion of natural gas burning features.) Fireplace Doors Online is adamant about this for the safety of our valued customers. Some manufacturers offer specialty components (such as ventilation collars) that make the combination of propane and fire glass compatible. However, this is only offered with limited products.

We recommend covering the burner with a layer of cinders/lava rock. These should be 1" diameter or larger. Glass should then be used as a topping over cinders/lava rock to approximately 2” in depth. This helps save material, money, and allows for safer operation.


Do I need to clean my fire glass?

  • There is no maintenance required. Your fire glass will be free of soot and odors. It will not leave any residue in the bottom of your fire bowl.
    • It is, however, very possible for your gas burner to leave behind a residue of soot if fuel connections were not installed properly (wrong air mixer, malfunctioning gas regulator etc). In that case, you can scoop out small amounts of glass at a time and wash them in a strainer with warm water and a small amount of mild soap. Allow your fire glass to dry completely before replacing it.

Are there any sharp piece of fire glass that might cut me?

  • There is always the possibility of small pieces of glass nicking your hands and fingers. For this reason, we do recommend the use of work gloves when handling fire glass. However, please know that we take every precaution necessary to eliminate this issue to the best of our ability. Our fire glass is tumbled many times to round off the edges and smooth the surface of these pieces.
    • REMEMBER: do not touch fire glass while it is still hot!

What is reflective glass?

  • This type of colored fire glass has a reflective finish on one side. This concept is similar to the reflective backing of a mirror. Adding this element to fire glass allows the media to bounce light off its prismatic surfaces for a shimmery display of sparkle and glitz!

Our Fire Glass Calculator will help you find the exact amount of fire media you will need for your outdoor feature! Simply choose the shape above that best matches your fire pit, enter the specified measurements of your fire feature, and click "Calculate Your Glass"! You will need to specify how much of a layer of fire glass you would like in your feature. We recommend using 2" to 4" to top of your feature and using lava rock to fill the rest of the feature underneath. The amount of lava rock needed is generally equal to 25 pounds per 1/2 cubic foot of holding capacity. To ensure proper airflow, select lava rock that is at least 1" in diameter. A steel mesh lath may be placed over the lava rock and burner element to hold the layer of fire glass safely in place to prevent it from slipping below the surface.

If you plan on using fire glass with a propane fire feature, we recommend drilling four holes near the base of your feature to allow more air to enter and disperse the gas. Since liquid propane is heavier than natural gas, it has a tendency to sink to the bottom of a feature, potentially causing hazardous buildup. Lava rock will need to be used to fill the base of your feature to provide more air pockets so your gas can circulate and eventually be safely released through the vent holes. If your feature will be placed on a pillar, you will need to ensure it provides proper ventilation.  To use fire glass with propane, fill the base with lava rock, then place a steel mesh lath above the lava rock and burner element, and fill a 2" layer of fire glass on top. 

We offer a range of styles and colors of fire glass and lava rock for you to add that perfect finishing touch! Feel free to browse our selection of fire media and outdoor fire features to find just what you're looking for!
