This was the first public prototype which stood 36" tall. We are building 14 = 36" Vortex Fires for a party in Hawaii and we were contracted to build 32 Vortex Fires as large as 96" and as small as 48" for a Night Club/ Bar/ Restaurant in Las Vegas of we can't say at this time. But as soon as it opens we can post the pictures and let you know who it is. The first showing was a great success!
Send us your opinions of our trailer and the Vortex Fire.
We just took a few dozen rapid fire shots of the new vortex fire in the shop with 2 mirrors in the background. This makes 3 times as much light outdoors and looks amazing.
We took a lot of shots and we couldn't decide on which ones to show, so we showed all of them.
Here are the second generation Vortex fires! We are building 5, 48" tall Vortex fireboxes for a party in Hawaii for Lexus! We will forward the pictures of our Vortex boxes on the beach next month. So here are our next generation boxes. These 2nd generation boxes can be seen in Palm Springs for the next few weeks. We will be then adding our third generation Vortex boxes which were contracted to Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas at the "Prive" Las Vegas!
The 24 pictures below are of the generation 3 of the Vortex Fires. These are Infinite Vortex Fires! The first two we are going to show you have a chromium coating on the inside which reflects hundreds of fires, hence Infinite! The box on the left was done in black and the one on the right is done in bronze, both will reflect many times. You will also notice the fire is more contained as we develop more and more Vortex Fires. We will and or should have the pictures from Hawaii at their Lexus Corporate party that we built 5 = 96" tall Vortex fires for to be displayed on the beach. We even shipped the natural gas over because they only have propane there. Yes we are already developing a portable propane unit.
The next seven Vortex Fires will be made this next week for Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. These will be a generation 4 as they requested a few modifications which we know you will enjoy. So here we go with generation 3!
The next set of vortex pictures are of a proto type we had set up to actually have 3 vortex fires side by side in the same fireplace.
We had a cinema photographer come out and take a few hours of film time on our vortex fires for to show the capability of their new camera. We will be posting these videos so you can actually see the true effect of these vortex fires as well.
In the last two pictures you can see the adjusting valve and the electronics.
The next several pictures are of our Vortex Covers. The vinyl that was used is from www.Enduratex.com. A high grade of marine vinyl. Check out their site, there are hundreds of colors. We can make these withe tie, Velcro or a zipper fit.
Our first public showing was in Palm Springs at the Village Fest Art Fair in August of 2007
Here are a few pictures of the Vortex Fire, our little Tasmanian Devil in a glass box!
The Vortex below was installed in the front yard in Glendora, California at Larry and Bonnie Bidwell.If you want to make a statement, then this would be it!
We now can recommend and offer Marine Vinyl covers for your Vortex! Very simple Velcro front panel!
Now we wait for Alfie to send evening pictures with the outer ring burning around the Vortex!!!
Here's a twist! One of our customers sent us 2 Heat N Glo Cyclone fires to convert to propane because they didn't know how or want to do it. So if you want yours converted call us. Here are the before and after pictures on the conversion from natural gas to propane.
The first 3 above are natural gas
The 3 below have been converted to propane. Not much difference, just that we could do it and the big guy couldn't provide for the customer.
The difference between our vortex fires and Heat N Glo
is that ours are naturally aspirated and theirs is drawn upward with a fan. I guess they didn't know how to do it our way. We are now working on 6 foot and 8 foot tall vortex fires. These are in prototype and we will post details when we get a chance.
