With a broad line of 1/4″ tempered glass, customers have flexibility to browse colors that will essentially go along with their color scheme of choice.

Restaurants, resorts and luxurious hotels were the first to experiment with tempered glass in place of traditional product and quickly gained fame opening eyebrows as to what it was called and where to buy it from. Names such as glass crystals, fireglass, firepit glass and broken fire glass crystals were the first to surface the market. Once consumers caught on a new trend was created where broken tempered glass was being used as a substitute in place of lava rocks and logs. Existing fireplaces, fire pits, fire tables, fire bowls and other hearth platforms were being completely transformed and rejuvenated with fireglass crystals.

Most Common Fire Glass Questions

How much of your fire glass do I need for a fireplace? What if I have an indoor fireplace and an outdoor fire pit?

Glaz Chips has developed a fireglass calculator to let you know how much you’ll need. We recommend at least a 2″ minimum depth worth of fire glass crystals for any platform whether be a indoor fireplace, outdoor square or round fire pit. As a quick tip and reminder to save you money, in the event that your fireplace exceeds 2″ in depth you can always purchase clear glass as a filler since you won’t realistically see it below. Or many customers have also purchased sand or rock to fill up the space leading to the suggested 2″ minimum. Visit our contact page in case you have further questions on the structure of your fireplace or fire pit.

Does the flame change color depending on the color I choose?

Unfortunately the answer is no. The glass color you decide to choose does not change the color of the flame.

Before changing out my lava rocks, what are the benefits of using glass for my fire pit?

Fire glass can be viewed as a substitute for traditional products such as lava rocks and logs. It is a green eco-friendly product that doesn’t leave the mess that other products do. Since the glass is tempered it does absorb heat and remains hot after being lit making it an ideal product during cold weather. The variety of colors, reflective glass and premixes allows for creativity and thus transforming and designing your fireplace or fire pit. Fire glass doesn’t create ash, soot or emit toxins into the air and has far more longevity when compared to other traditional products.

Fire Glass Facts for Natural Gas or Propane Gas Applications

One of the questions a home owner or designer may not immediately inquire about is the effects of using natural or propane gas with Glaz Chips Fire Glass. The fact is natural gas is a preferred application for any of our fire glass colors. Reason being that the characteristics of natural gas are cleaner in comparison when using propane gas. If you are new to any of these applications just imagine the effects of a bbq grill that utilizes propane gas. In time, due to the chemistry of propane, you would eventually see a build up of soot or a dirty build up accumulate on your grill therefore requiring a thorough cleaning before your next bbq. The same applies to a fireplace or fire pit. Although the effects of using propane does not take place immediately, rest assure that in time you would see a build up or dirty film accumulate on your fire glass. Even though Glaz Chips recommends using natural gas as your source of lighting your fireplace, propane is still manageable and can be used. If using propane, however, Glaz Chips Fire Glass recommends selecting dark colors. Please see our recommended list of fire glass colors and mixes below when utilizing propane gas.
