Fire Glass

Fire Glass is made from tempered glass and manufactured to withstand harsh weather and extreme temperatures without sustaining any damage or discoloration. It also does not emit any harmful chemicals, smoke, soot, or ash.

Fire Glass, also commonly known as fireplace glass or fire pit glass, can be used in fireplaces & fire pits both indoor & outdoor, in landscaping, aquariums, & even in art projects! The maintenance is also little-to-none with just a simple rinse of a 50:50 water/vinegar mix.

Fire Glass is not just beautiful to look at, it’s also extremely practical. Use Fire Glass to cover the entire floor of the fire feature to hide any unseemly pies or tubes that are often visible in gas fireplaces & firepits. We recommend to completely cover your burner and then add about 1-2 inches of fire glass on top of that.


For use in fully vented fireplaces
The Modern Alternative to a log fire

FireBalls™ are those with contemporary decor, for those with a modern flair, for those yearning for an alternative to the ubiquitous gas log and for those who just want something different.
FireBalls are made from the same high-heat resistant ceramic-bonded refractory material we use in the making of our gas logs. 
Standard sets are available in the below sizes.
Please contact us with your fireplace dimensions and set composition desires if you do not see anything to your liking from our offering.
FireBalls sets are available in Natural Color (tannish gray, the base material color) and six ceramic stain colors made from Rasmussen’s proprietary formulation, including Black, Dark Gray, Light Gray, Beige, Brown and Adobe Red.  We recommend darker colors (Black, Dark Gray, & Brown) as pan and firepit burners will create soot from the natural, luminous yellow flame. The black soot is more noticeable against the lighter colors (Natural, Adobe Red, Beige, & Light Gray); with the darker colors there is less contrast, so the soot is not as pronounced. FireBalls cannot be recolored.

Advantages of Contemporary Gas Log Alternatives & Traditional Gas Logs

Contemporary and traditional gas log fireplaces are a beautiful alternative to wood-burning fireplaces. Both contemporary gas log alternatives and traditional gas logs offer ambience, comfort, and an inviting glow that will quickly become the centerpiece of your home or outdoor living space. However, they don’t require the same care, commitment, and maintenance as traditional fireplaces. Gas log fireplaces are easier and safer to manage. They don’t invite toxic smoke and chemicals into your home, and you won’t need to commit to carefully building and lighting a fire, cleaning out fireplace ash, maintaining a flue, or buying expensive wood.

Modern gas log alternatives look just like natural wood, but don’t cause messes or require upkeep. You can enjoy the benefits of a traditional fireplace without increasing your carbon footprint. Contemporary gas log alternatives create a central gathering place in your yard or on your deck, inviting conversation and socialization. You’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors year-round, as well as increase the value and comfort of your outdoor living space.
