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.

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.
