Glass Wind Guards for Your Fire Pit and Fire Table

Enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your gas fire pit or fire table with our premium glass wind guards. These carefully crafted accessories are the perfect solution for extending the enjoyment of your fire feature on breezy evenings. At Firepits Direct, we prioritize quality and safety, offering a curated selection from reputable manufacturers to ensure lasting utility.

Why Invest in a Glass Wind Guard:

  • Weather Protection: Enjoy uninterrupted evenings by the fire, even in moderate winds. Our glass wind guards act as a reliable barrier, preventing the flame from sputtering or going out, providing a constant and bright fire.
  • Safety: Create a safe environment by adding a physical barrier around the burner, reducing the risk of accidental items falling into the flame. Ideal for both residential and business applications, offering peace of mind with curious children or pets around.
  • Performance Enhancement: Minimize the impact of wind on your fire feature's flame presentation. Even the highest quality burners can be affected by breezes, and a wind guard significantly increases both the height and heat output of the fire.
  • Aesthetics: Beyond functionality, a glass wind guard adds a clean and polished look to your fire feature. Elevate the overall appeal with a professional installation that complements any outdoor space.

Considerations When Buying a Glass Wind Guard:

  • Size: Choose a wind guard size that is at least two inches larger than the burning area on all sides, ensuring effective protection. Fireplace Doors Online suggests selecting wind guard dimensions that extend 2 inches beyond each side of your fire pit opening. If your tabletop is smooth and level, 1-inch proximity is acceptable, but adhering to the 2-inch guideline is a highly recommended rule of thumb. For example, if your rectangular fire pit opening measures 12” x 24”, we recommend opting for a 16” x 28” wind guard. When dealing with circular fire pits, simply take the diameter measurement. For an opening of 20 inches, seek a wind guard that is at least 24 inches wide.
  • Height: Choose your preferred height Glass wind guards typically come in heights ranging from 6 to 10 inches, with the option for customization if required. Opting for a shorter wind guard is suitable for smaller fire pits, offering ample protection. On the other hand, taller wind guards are effective in blocking more wind and are well-suited for larger fire pits and extended glass panels.
  • Shape: Choose a wind guard shape that complements your fire pit, whether it's round, square, rectangular, or linear. Custom options are accessible for non-standard openings. Please note that custom round wind guards are not available at this time.
  • Features: Explore folding wind guards for added convenience, especially useful when protection is only needed in noticeable wind conditions. Foldable designs allow for easy storage or use as a burner cover when not in use.
  • Glass: Clear tempered glass stands out as our most favored choice, given its widespread use in contemporary wind guard production. This type of glass exhibits a subtle, slightly darker, greenish-blue tint, a characteristic resulting from the presence of natural iron in the glass composition. However, it's worth noting that the majority of individuals may not even notice this effect, as it is common across a wide range of glass materials.

Make the most of your outdoor space with our exceptional glass wind guards, combining style, safety, and performance for an unparalleled fire experience. Shop with confidence at Fireplace Doors Online for reliable and premium-quality products that stand the test of time.
