CUSTOM MADE FIRE PIT COVERS

We offer custom made canvas type covers to cover your fire pit to protect against the elements. We take your measurements based on the diagram to the right and your color choice based on color chart below and we make a cover to cover your fire pit. We use Sunbrella Canvas material. This is the same material Sunbrella uses for awning material and you know the torture awnings get from mother nature.

To get started in the process you will need to take measurements of your fire pit. Using the picture above take your measurements and make notes. The picture above is a fire pit with a screen on it. Some fire pits don't have screens. If your fire pit doesn't have a screen in the measurement "A" defaults to 0, zero. The measurement "B" is the length of the drape. How far down the the exterior wall do you want the cover to fall. The next measurement "C" is how wide is the flat area on top of the pit. This measurement is only important if you have a screen on your fire pit. If you don't have a screen then this defaults to 0, zero. The "D" measurement is again relevant to whether you have a screen or not. This measurement is the diameter of the bottom of your screen. The "E" measurement applies to all pits and this is the outside diameter of your fire pit. We are going to make the cover to fit your measurements. We add a little to your measurement for a little wiggle room.

An example would be - let's say the outside diameter of your fire pit is 58". If we make the cover exactly 58" it's going to be a real tight fit. We need an exact measurements from you of your fire pit. Then we add some wiggle room on our side, usually 2". So it fits a little loose and it's easy to put on and off but on the other hand you don't want it too loose. So it's your decision as to how much slack you want. Another issue is how true of a circle is it? Rock and brick work is never perfect. When your measuring the outside diameter take measurements in several places and use the largest measurement. I would think that a 2" add on is a safe buffer and still look good. Let's say your fire pit is 58" in diameter. Let's add two inches making the cover 60" in diameter.

Is the Material Water Proof?

Here's the deal on moisture in your fire pit. Most gas fire pits require that they get cover and protected from the elements such as rain and snow. Most clients think they need a cover made using a water PROOF material. Well the material that is sold as "Water Proof" is water proof until a needle and a stitch has been made.This another reason we add wiggle room. This puts the stitch on the side of the fire pit not at the top corner.

So the best we say we do is water resistant or water repelled. But rain isn't the only issue. Another issue is condensation. If you use a sealed fabric that's sold as water proof this material doesn't breathe well and this will cause condensation under the cover and it will literally rain under the cover. So we kind of defeated the purpose of protection from the elements.It created an issue.

On the other hand if we use material that is water resistant such as Sunbrella Canvas the material will shed most all the water but the fabric breathes and almost eliminating the condensation under the cover. With that said - in my opinion I would prefer the breathable canvas material vs. a sealed fabric.

Here's something else to consider keeping your fire pit covered. To keep leaves and trash out of your pit when your not using the fire pit as a fire pit. What happens is leaves and trash will accumulate in the pit and I don't care how well you clean the leaves out there will always be a few you missed. When you fire up the pit the orphaned leaves will ignite and go air borne and possibly landing on another pile of unattended leaves.
