A made to order 72" by 42" fire table with a custom powder coat color.
Natural gas Hot Wire Ignition (HWI) system.
Lastly, a custom wind shield for his fire. The fireglass used was Bronze Rust Copper.
Ty Havas didn't want an ordinary Propane pan for his fireplace. He wanted a pan that would be more than functional. So after some sketches and discussions we began making a cardboard mock up.
He would ultimately recieve a Stainless Steel pan with angled legs and a 2 inch depth. Here the cardboard mock-up along with his firepalce measurments (which you can see denoted on the cardboard piece below the mock-up) assure that we attain the correct size and appropriate design.
The fireplace is emptied out and it becomes apparent that its in dire need of a fresh coat of paint. And since the custom pan was built with legs, the fireplace floor will be left visible and as a result fresh tile will be added to the hearth.
The fireplace re-design is complete with two custom reflective sterling silver panels on either side of the pan to give the illusion of the fireplace being larger.
The stainless steel pan is filled 1/4" Bronze, 1/4" Bronze Reflective, Copper Ruby Red, Yellowish Opal Orange, and Red Brown and a few Classic Daimonds.
A wonderful transformation.
Designed for a client in China, these pair of 48" high Vortex fires were made of brushed Aluminum.
Fueled by propane and battery operated ignition with a set of remote controls.
A set of 2 rear refective panels along with a powder coated black finish, made these custom Vortex's true one of a kinds.
Our client Rich Guerra put us to the test with this custom fireplace surround, that went above and beyond the call of duty. As you see here the first Surround served as the base for the stone encasing - which will later demonstrate itself as very ingenious/fast/hassle free solution to getting a new fireplace design.
Here is fireplace before the 1st Surround was installed with the old burner and grill removed.
We apply a fresh coat Black fireplace paint and we sit and watch paint dry...
Look closely as you could miss it, but the first surround has been installed. We then pour some crushed lava rock as filler with Bronze Rust Copper over a double 24" indoor fireplace burner.
Now the 2nd Surround is installed, along with one 8" Dark Brown fireball and two 6" Red fireballs.
The 2nd Surround was Steel construction with a Dark Bronze powder coat and frosted glass inlay. Overall the installation of the Surround gave the fireplace an extra depth of 6 inches.
A radical transformation which only took 40 minutes to complete and without all the mess and drama of reconstructing your fireplace.
Yet to come is a few pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper and interior lights to spotlight the fireplace when its not burning.
Our customer Gary Gibbs went to his local home store and bought an outdoor wood burning fire pit. This was placed within a custom marble and brick encasing.
We then helped him to successfully complete his convertion to propane. Gary wanted something unique, so he got a stainless steel star burner instead of your traditional burner ring.
The air mixer / valve on the left side had a custom aluminum face plate made to the same size of the exsiting brick - so to be as unubtrosive as possible once installed.
Add some fireglass and light to enjoy the beauty and superior warmth that you can only get with fireglass.
Notice the patio umbrella, which if placed at least 60" inches above the fire pit will further help keep the heat around the sitting area.
This custom (#304) stainless steel box pan was designed to be set in the middle of a water feature.
To assure product longvity the entire pan was constructed of stainless steel even the brakets and fastners.
This project showcases several unique metal projects. This first project took place at a boutique hotel in downtown San Diego. We supplied and created the burners for this very large roof-deck patio fire pit.
Here are a few photos of the installation process. It measures 60" across, 30" tall and 144" long! The fire table/ fire pit will and a 5' x 12' surface top in smooth concrete with a 16" x 120" stainless steel fire tray of to one side.
And now for the finished product shots.
This is another large firepit for the same hotel. We actually built the metal frame for the fire pit. We used a new flexible track and about 3,000 screws, 240' of galvanized channel, 450 welds, 600 lbs of GFRC/ Wonder Board and coated in smooth texture concrete.
This was just before delivery, dry fit.
Once on the roof top the two halves were attached and the pan was installed. There were two burners and two controls installed.
The glass is going in after the position of the fire table was adjusted. Pictures will be here soon! If you look at the walls of the roof top you can see most of San Diego. The table now has had a different coat of colored concrete applied and a granite top. The glass that is installed is Starfire
. The Hotel plumber was not very careful as he mixed the lava with the glass and now it looks like salt and pepper. We will be taking a trip to San Diego to fix this mixing issue because we would like to post finished pictures of the fire table burning at night time.
Paul Hammels Portable Fire Table
Paul Hammel one of our clients from San Fransico had a very particular design idea for a portable outdoor fire table. Made of Corten Metal and fueled by natural gas this modern custom feature is both industrial and stylish.
The Media used was Four 4" Earth Fireballs Three 6" Earth Fireballs and 1/4" Super Black Fireglass.
Steel Star Burner
Our newest line of burners are the star burners available in 12", 18" 24" and 30" in stainless steel and steel. These are also made in custom sizes as well. If you dream it, we can make it! These can be made with a base or with out. The can be made for propane or natural gas.
30" Star Burner
24" Star Burner
12" Star Burner
Custom Burner Sticks
The Sticks below are a pro-to type of 2 sets that are being installed in Nipomo California in the Trilogy project by Shea Homes (Pismo Beach). We will follow up with completed pictures as soon as we have time to post the finished project. There are several fireplaces which will also be all electronic ignition as well.
At the base of each burner there is a control valve to regulate the flow of fuel to the burner. The base will be covered with our black sand to conceal the valves.
Converted Fire PIts For the Cadillac Ranch on The Las Vegas Strip.
The Fire Pits/ Tables below are in Las Vegas Nevada. We built the stainless steel pans and corrals to protect the lighting on the outer edges of the pan. The glass that was used was:
V Blue and V Blue Reflective, Ford Blue and Ford Blue Reflective. The installation was done by Silver State Fireplaces of Las Vegas. www.CadillacRanchVegas.com
Custom Aluminum Pit
We receive calls all the time inquiring about fire pit construction, and the answer is that as long as its metal we can! The fire pit below was built to the customers specs. It was 48" round, 10" tall with 8" legs and constructed from 1/4" aluminum. Then powder coated to match the customers request. We will fill in the details as we go.
Above you can see the cross grid to support the false bottom. You can see the false bottom making it possible to fill it with a 2" fill over the ring.
A custom 42" stainless steel burner had to be built.
The center leg was for the gas and electrical for the electronic ignition
. Hopefully we will get pictures of the fire pit installed on top of the water fall in New York.
Stainless Steel Fireplace Surround
This fireplace surround
was a one piece construction face and a 4 piece construction on the rear. We used a twin-can laser on most if not all of our metal projects as this eliminates warp and keep the projects looking better. This was installed by Silver State Fireplaces in Las Vegas. We have given you several angles to show how nice the stainless steel turned out.
Below you can see the .030 (1/16") edge is still perfect and straight for that clean installation.
HGTV's River Project
We were pumping water into the top pan so it would run down through the three pans and then pour back into the gold river Yard Crashers
created. Only fire came from the two top pans. We used three 16" gold pans for this project.
And here are some photos of the project finished.
Custom Fireplace Metal Pan
The stainless steel fireplace pan below was created by John Webber of San Diego, CA. He created a card board mock-up that guided us in properly building his custom design. This is a great way to provide a preview of what is to come.
Our philosophy is "Your thoughts, My Hands!" we can build anything you desire. Here are some pictures of the pan next to the cardboard mock-up.
We are not showing the burners or the controls as everyone we build is different.
Above you see John Webber on the right. He was excited to see his model come to life.
An Octangonal Fire Pit
If you look closely you can see the reflection of the glass top cover. Not a bad idea!
Here is what Sandee and Frank had to say:
We love our fire pit, and so does everyone else who sees it. Your rock is gorgeous…
We keep a glass octagonal table top on it when not in use; the rock is always visible, even when used as simply a coffee table.
Thanks for your beautiful product and great service!!

A Floor to Ceiling Brushed Aluminum Custom Fireplace Surround
The next few pictures were sent to us by Marsha Dashefsky from Palm Springs, California. Marsha wanted us to build a custom floor-to-ceiling brushed aluminum fireplace surround.
These pictures were taken under different lighting conditions and with and without Flash. The aluminum can take on various looks depending on the lighting. The fireplace used 1/4" Clear and then we added 1/2" Clear and 1/2" Starfire.
Water And Fire Feature
The next Water Over Fire Feature
can be made in any configuration, size or shape. We can install it in a table or leave it as a stand alone feature. What ever you like. This particular bowl is a spun aluminum 30" bowl with a 26" water ring and about 100 lbs of Multi Mix base glass
. We added a few of our Terra Cotta Fire Balls
in the center.
