Sunset Fire Pits is excited to offer you this amazing new product from Deck Protect. Their fire pit pad is a revolutionary device that was created by a team of engineers and scientists in 2009 to protect any decking surfaces from extreme heat generated by portable Fire Pits and Chiminea’s. Deck Protect allows you to enjoy the warm glow of an open fire without worrying about damaging your deck or even making it warm! Relaxing on your deck in front of a open fire is an experience only Deck Protect® can provide. Just slide Deck Protect® under your fire pit and enjoy the fire without the worry of damage to any surface – decks, docks, patios and marble.
Deck Protect’s state-of-the-art fireproof design will protect your deck or patio from fire and heat. Deck protect is handmade using volcanic rock, crushed then melted, pulled into fibers and then woven into 100% fireproof material.
The Deck Protect Products are recommended by Trex , the maker of the very popular wood-alternative decking. A fire pit on a Trex Deck (just like a fire pit on a wood deck) is not recommended. Wood-burning fire pits can damage the Trex Decking. Use the Deck Protect fireproof pad under your fire pit to protect it from extreme heat and burning embers.
The Deck Protect fire pit mat is available in (5) sizes and includes the mat and a sturdy rack that raises the mat off the deck. This provides a gap for airflow and keeps moisture from gathering under the pad. A 1 year warranty is also included.
Sizing your Fire Pit Pad:
When sizing for composite surfaces, feel safe when doing so! Infinite Heat Solutions and “Trex” have conducted a number of different heat tests and determine Deck Protect fire pit pads to be the safe way to enjoy a fire pit on composite decking.
For composite decks, we recommend your fire pit sit on top of a Deck Protect fire pit pad, so your decking has zero direct contact with your fire pit.
Measure the distance from the outside of one leg to the outside of the other, between two legs of your fire pit. Once you have that measurement, choose the Deck Protect that will safely fit all four legs of your fire pit on top of the fire pit pad (i.e, if the distance between the outside of the furthest two legs is 28″, select the 30″ Deck Protect).
You may want to choose a larger than necessary Deck Protect to give you extra room to catch embers that may fall from your fire pit.
Measure between two legs of your fire pit. Choose the Deck Protect fire pit pad that will slide between the legs and rest directly underneath the bowl of the fire pit. This will protect any surface from the radiant heat fire pits and other heat sources produce.
