How can I use the fire stones?
Our fire stones are natural basalt volcanic stones, and have been known to be heat-resistant when used with standard gas and ethanol fireplaces, and under non-extreme heat* and dry conditions. To assure optimal efficiency, please follow the fireplace or burner’s manufacturer’s recommendations and safety precautions. Typical usage instructions may require a small clearance space around the burner and all openings, or the nozzles to be clean and clear of any obstacles. It is advisable to start any fire pit or fireplace at low temperatures for few minutes to let any moisture evaporate, and use all necessary safety precaution. The fire stones can be placed to hide all piping or other inserts, without covering the burner. Ensure the fire stones do not overlap too much as this will effect the flame pattern. Wash with lukewarm water and soap to remove any oil, residue, dirt, or discoloration due to occasional charring or other conditions. Use alone or in combination with fire glass. Please handle all fire glass with care as pieces may have sharp edges and a fine dust may accumulate during shipping.
* Our internal testings have concluded that optimal efficiency is achieved with burners up to 90,000 BTUs. Our fire stones have been used wth units ranging from 15,000 to 180,000 BTUs. Occasional but rare cracking of a stone may occur, as no two stones are alike, when used with higher BTU-units or with other media (i.e. wet or humid lava rocks can explode when heated), or when maintenance, installation, or operation guidelines have not been followed properly.
