What are Gas Fire Pit Kits?

Fire Pit Kits are a set of individual compatible fire pit components offered as a kit from a brand’s range of products. The price point of this combination of components is less than purchasing the parts individually.

Customers often appreciate the versatility of fire pit kits, as they provide the freedom to craft a customized fire pit enclosure that perfectly complements their space.

DIY Fire Pit Kits offer the user the confidence that all the essential parts are compatible, quick, and easy to install, resulting in a good flame for their fire pit.

Shapes and Sizes

Our range encompasses an array of shapes and sizes, ensuring that you can find the perfect fit for your outdoor space. Whether you need a round 12″ fire pit kit for a small table top fire pit or aiming to make a bold statement with a 10-foot linear fire pit burner, we have the solution for you.

What do Gas Fire Pit Kits Include?

This depends on the model and brand however the most basic match lit fire pit kit will include a pan or tray with an appropriate burner, and a gas line from the burner to either a shut-off or key valve. Kits may provide a second gas line from the key valve to the gas feed. 

Outdoor fire pit kits are designed to work with either natural gas or liquid propane, providing comparable functionality but not interchangeable between the two fuel types. It’s essential to identify your preferred fuel choice prior to investing in components. In general, if you plan to connect to a natural gas line, you will need natural gas fire pit kits; whereas, if you opt for portable cylinders or fixed gas tanks, liquid propane fire pit kits will be necessary. 

Gas Fire Pit Kits for Propane: A standard burner typically includes an air mixer valve, except for specific models like the Bullet Burner, which doesn’t require one. Additionally, kits intended for use with a 20lb gas cylinder may include a propane regulator.

Gas Fire Pit Kits for Natural Gas or Propane include fittings and gas connection lines customized for each fuel type, as well as their respective BTU ratings.

Ignition Options

There are four different kinds of fire pit kits, defined by the Ignition System included with the kit:

  1. Match Lit (also referred to as Match Light or Match Throw)
  2. Spark Ignition
  3. Flame Sensing
  4. Electronic Ignition

While the manufacturer maintains consistency in the fire pit pan and burner across all Ignition System options, that’s where the similarities end. Each option diverges in its unique features and specifications.

Match Lit Ignition Systems

Easy installation and maintenance

Available in natural gas and propane versions, Match Lit Kits are easy to install, require liitle maintenance, and are easy on the budget.

A match-lit fire pit kit system is the simplest of the fire pit ignition systems. You open the gas valve manually using the gas valve key or shut-off valve and light the burner with a long match or taper.

Adjusting the flame height and turning off the fire pit is also performed via the shut-off valve.

Match Lit systems are straightforward to install and maintain, and no electrical feed is required.

Spark Ignition Systems

No Matches or Lighters Required

A step up from the match lit system. An ignitor probe installed next to the burner is connected by an electrical cable to a push-button unit.

The best place to install the Push Button unit is on the fire pit structure’s outer surface, in an easily accessible position adjacent to the shut-off valve.

The user turns on the gas via the shut-off valve and then presses the button causing the probe to spark, igniting the burner. No electrical supply is necessary. The battery is located inside the push-button, so it is easily accessible.

Flame Sensing Ignition Systems

Enhanced Safety Features

These safety systems have various names depending on the manufacturer. In essence, Flame Sense is a fail-safe system that cuts off the gas supply if the fire pit flame goes out.

The Automatic flame sensor or “thermocouple” located in the ignition system detects the presence of flames and closes the gas line if the flame is extinguished.

The system is battery powered, the fire pit lights via the control panel and a push button, although there are also Match-Lit models available.

These kits are fully assembled and ready for installation into the gas fire pit structure. All the connections from the control panel to the fire pit tray are completed at the factory.

Electronic Ignition Systems

The Highest Level Of Safety features

Electronic Ignition systems function similarly to flame-sensing systems, continuously monitoring the fire pit flame.

If the flame goes out, the gas supply is automatically shut off as a safety measure.

However, unlike Flame Sensing Kits, Electronic systems make several attempts to re-light the fire pit before cutting off the gas supply if the flame fails to ignite.

These systems offer various operation options, including a simple switch for easy lighting and remote control options via mobile apps.

They are highly recommended for commercial installations like Hotels, Casinos, and Restaurants due to their safety features and autonomous monitoring.

Code and ordinances often require electronic ignition for publicly accessible gas fire pits due to their enhanced safety.

Leading manufacturers, such as HPC Fire, American Fireglass and The Outdoor Plus Company, focus on durability, practicality, and compact design, making them ideal for different fire features and spaces.

While most Electronic Ignition Systems typically rely on mains electricity, there are also battery-operated models offered.

Additionally, there are Low Voltage kits specifically designed for use near water sources.
