Description

Gather around in welcoming warmth with the Bentintoshape 48" Rectangular Fire Pit. With a large profile, the fire table is perfect for entertaining. The 11 Gauge Cor-Ten steel construction arrives unweathered and has a surface that naturally weathers over time, giving a rustic patina unique to your fire pit. Best of all, no maintenance or painting is needed. The optional lid creates a large table, perfect for setting drinks or snacks while having an engaging conversation. The fire pit is a one-of-a-kind centerpiece that can sit alongside your outdoor furniture set.

There are several configurations available to suit your firepit needs. You can choose between a campfire-style fire pit that only burns wood logs. Otherwise, you can upgrade to a gas ring that hooks externally to a 20 lbs Liquid Propane tank or a Natural Gas line where you can use ceramic logs, lava rocks, or fire glass. With a maximum of 75,000 BTUs of heat output, you can enjoy the flame's warmth for hours. Cleaning is easy with the integrated vent under the fire pit.

Options available:

Wood Burning: Ready to use on standard logs. The media grate is positioned 5" from the bottom of the fire bowl.

Natural Gas or Liquid Propane Gas Burner Kit: Good for ceramic logs or burning wooden logs with gas. The media grate sits 5" from the fire bowl top with the 36" stainless steel "H" burner ring below the grate.

Fire Glass or Lava Rock Gas Burner Kit: Fill the fire bowl with either 40 lbs of lava rock or 70 lbs of fire glass (sold separately) just above the fire ring. The media grate is 4" from the fire bowl top with the 36" stainless steel "H" burner ring below the grate. The gas defuses through the grate and ignites at the surface.

Note: You should only place gas fire pits on a wood deck with a heat and flame barrier.

Please be aware of any local ordinances that may restrict or govern the use of this product before purchasing.

Fire glass and lava rock sold with this product are from American Fire Glass and are not for wood-burning systems.

Product Protection

Your Cor-Ten steel fire pit will arrive in the "unweathered" condition. You may see spots or weld marks, shinny spots or shinny grind marks on the fire pit. During the weathering process, these spots and marks will disappear. The Weathering process depends on humidity. On average, the Cor-Ten steel fire pit will fully weather in about 3 months. During the weathering process, your Cor-Ten steel fire pit may leach rust onto the surface it sits on. It is recommended that you protect any light colored surface during the weathering process.

You do not need to do anything to the Cor-Ten steel to maintain it's finish. If you would like to smooth out the weathered surfaces, you can use a Scotch Brite pad to gently rub the steel. This will cause some of the rust barrier to break off and fall to the ground. Be sure to thoroughly clean the ground surface after this process. You can use water to clean the surfaces after this process.

Do not get water into any of the burner components. Water in the burner components can cause dangerous back pressure. If you think there is water in the burner components, call a licensed technician to check the burner before use.

Fire Pit with Gas Option
Fire pits should be inspected before initial use and inspected and cleaned at least annually by a qualified field service person. Periodically remove the logs, glass or lava rock and examine the burner. If dirty, clean with a soft brush. Also, examine the area around the Propane/Air Mixer. Any dirt or lint in this area should be removed. This will ensure long life and trouble free operation. When the fire pit is put back in service, check the burner flame patterns; it is imperative that the burner flame characteristics are steady, not lifting or floating. Periodically check the hose connecting the LP gas cylinder to ensure it is not damaged in any way. While the fire pit is not in use, it should be covered to protect it from weather and other adverse elements. Not protecting the fire pit could result in a void of the warranty.

Carbon (soot) may build up on the surfaces of the logs with heavy use. This is more likely to occur when using LP gas. The soot should be cleaned off the surface of the logs periodically to prevent excessive buildup. To clean the logs, be sure the fire is out, the gas supply is turned off and the logs are cool to the touch. The soot can then be brushed off with a dry bristle brush or cloth. Logs can be damaged if mishandled. Dispose of soot and cleaning materials properly. Keep away from clothing, pets and outdoor furniture.
