Rectangular Drop-In Pan with Flame Sensing Kit from American Fireglass provides an additional safety level compared to Match lit and Spark Ignition kits.

The Flame Sensing Ignition system has received CSA Certification under ANS Z21.97-2014/CSA 2.41-2014, Outdoor Decorative Gas Appliance.

This certification demonstrates that the Ignition system has been tested and approved for use in both the USA and Canada by one of the worlds leading testing laboratories.

What Is a Flame Sensing Ignition System?

Flame Sensing Ignition uses a battery-powered, push-button spark ignition to light the fire pit. However, it is a much more sophisticated system than the basic ‘ Spark Ignition Kits ‘

The ignition systems lights the flame via a rapid ignition and thermocouple.

The thermocouple is the ‘flame sensor’ and monitors the presence of a flame. If the flame should extinguish, then the system automatically shuts off the gas flow, which helps prevent the build of a dangerous gas cloud.

From a user’s perspective, to turn on your fire pit, just turn the control knob and push the button.

Flame Sensing Kit Control Panel

The system is straightforward to install. The tray and burner are supplied connected to the control panel at the factory.

These are ideal systems for a DIY project, easy to install, and providing the highest level of safety available.

Manufactured from 304-Grade Stainless Steel ensures the durability of the unit. American Fireglass is so confident in the quality of this product they qualify for a Lifetime Warranty.

These Rectangular Drop-In Pans with Flame Sensing Kit are available in five sizes, from 18 x 6 inches up to 48 x 14 inches. The Stainless Steel burner is pre-installed in the pan at the factory.

Drilling the gas holes into the burner ring, as American Fireglass does, ensures there is a smooth flow of gas out of the port, which creates a bigger and better flame. Punching the holes leaves a burr on the inside, interrupting the smooth flow of gas.

The Drop-In Pan has a generous 1 1/4 inch lip or flange around the recessed pan, making installation simple.

The pan ‘drops’ into the cutout created in the top surface of your fire pit structure and sits securely on the flange, making an attractive ‘framing’ around the fire pit tray circumference.

By creating a false bottom, the pan reduces the amount of fire glass needed and very neatly hides all the ugly plumbing out of sight.

Over time dust and dirt can collect on from the atmosphere, and surrounding area can deposit on your fire pit. You may notice that the fire glass has lost a little of its shine.

Cleaning your fire glass is very easy. Just wash with a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Gently place the glass back in the tray.

To reduce the frequency that this may be required and to add an extra layer of protection for the fire pit pan and ignition system, we recommend investing fire pit lid.

American Fireglass manufacture matching lids that sit neatly over the fire pit tray, protecting it from rain and dirt.

The lids are designed to fit within the corresponding wind guard and can be installed and removed without removing the wind guard.
