Custom Fire Pit Design

Build Your Own Gas Fire Pit Feature

When designing your own fire pit table, it’s essential to get the very best propane or natural gas burner pan in the industry for the project. Before you start shopping for your DIY gas burner, make a list of priorities.

  • Safety

Typically a safe DIY burner pan is at the top of the list. When searching for the right burner for your project, look for one that’s UL Listed for safety and quality. UL listed certification requires very strict testing standards to ensure safety in the outdoor elements. When it comes to your home and family’s fire pit, a safe UL Listed fire pit is worth every penny.

  • Easy to install and maintain

When building your own propane or natural gas fire pit, the ease of installation and use makes a major difference for your outside projects. The burner set should be user-friendly and easy to clean. Once your project’s completed, the last thing you want to do is spend hours cleaning the burner. The ease of maintaining your gas burner is mostly due to the construction and design.

Outdoor-rated construction plays a major role in your DIY burner. Commercial grade #304 stainless steel combined with state-of-the-art design creates a durable burner you can rely on for your projects. #304 stainless steel can withstand the heat and offers a longer lifespan for your DIY fire pit burner than other materials. A good test to ensure you’re getting a quality burner is the warranty. When purchasing a burner, inquire about the manufacturer’s warranty.
