S.I.T. Electronic Ignition System

This system provides the highest level of safety for your fire feature as it constantly monitors for the presence of a flame, if this is not detected, the S.I.T. System automatically makes multiple attempts to re-light. In the event of the fire feature failing to re-light, the system automatically closes the internal gas valve as a safety precaution. This is ideal for those who live in an area where fire pit safety features are required by local code.

The American Fireglass S.I.T. system is the smallest electronic ignition system available on the market making it the ideal choice for fire bowls or fire pit features.

You can choose whether to wire in your fire pit to a wall switch or remote control (add-on). Use either of these electrical devices to turn on and off the fire pit, however, when not in regular use, or to prevent accidental ignition, it is recommended that you turn off the gas supply at the gas shutoff valve. A listed gas shut-off valve is required by the Code to be installed prior to the location of the appliance.

Operating Voltage: 24 volts AC


The Pan & Burner

Both the Pan and the Burner are made of 100% high-grade 304 stainless steel and are built to endure the rigors of the outdoor environment. Pans are important components of a fire pit, they not only support the burner but can be easily removed when access is required for maintenance, they also greatly reduce the amount of fire glass you will need for that perfect finish, saving you money.  In the case of LP applications, they also provide a barrier allowing the air mixer to function efficiently. This barrier also reduces the amount of unburnt LP that can pool below the burner, which is not something you want to happen!

The Round Drop-in Pan or Tray is designed to sit in an opening of about 1″ bigger than the quoted tray size, resting securely on its generous lip. The pan size relates to the dimensions of the base and excludes the 1 ¼” support rim. The pans themselves are 2.5″ deep.

The gas holes in the burner are drilled, not punched. This ensures a smoother flow of gas, and a better flame and prevents whistling noises. Weep holes are drilled in the bottom of the Pan to allow for drainage, preventing water accumulation.



What to Consider

● American Fire Glass Electronic Ignition S.I.T. Kits are for outdoor, vented, fire features ONLY.

● Take into consideration your available BTUs at the fire pit site when choosing a tray/burner size. Ensure you have sufficient gas pressure to operate your Fire Pit. For more information on this please read our post – How to successfully build a gas fire pit 

● The Liquid Propane version is intended for whole house propane supply only.

● Ventilation – Install a minimum of 18 square inches of ventilation at the bottom on at least two opposing walls of the enclosure. Not only does this provide airflow to avoid overheating the components and air for the air mixer to function properly, but it is also essential in the event of gas leaks and especially in the use of LP applications where unburnt LP can pool below the burner due to being heavier than air!

● The American Fire Glass Electronic Ignition S.I.T. components require a minimum of one cubic foot of space beneath the bottom of the tray for installation.

● Drainage – Sufficient drainage must be included in the design to prevent components from becoming submerged.

● Installation – Certified NFI Professional Recommended

● Adding a Stainless Steel Fire Pit Lid to the fire pit will help protect your equipment from the elements.
