Quality and Longevity
a) Real Wood for Patterns. Mother Nature does it best, we reproduce with latex rubber molds the texture, detail and undercuts from real wood, not try to make a log from a lump of clay.
b) “Grandma’s Secret Recipe” of refractory concrete for all of our logs, balls, stones and shapes. High temperature, low iron oxide content cement (reduces chance to turn pink), lightweight aggregates, crinkled steel rod reinforcement, plus special additives.
c) Proprietary Ceramic Stain Coloration - absorbs into the material’s pores, rather than merely covering the surface of the shape, like paint does. Unlike paint, Ceramic Stain will not burn away under fire - Ceramic Stain will age gracefully. Color appearance may vary from piece to piece, enhancing the uniqueness of our products.

d) Burners are heavy 16 gauge cold roll steel, painted with an enamel and cured in an oven. We use ½” Schedule 40 Pipe, not light duty tubing, for all vented burners. We fully weld the corners and around pipes in order to “gas tight” the pan.
e) All Grates (except for 12”/15” sets) are 5/8” Square Bar, welded on the diamond, to provide a stronger weld and a more hefty appearance than achieved by welding on the flat.

f) All vented burners are available in Stainless Steel for outdoor use. The CS Pan Burner in SS is a contemporary design feature for indoor modern décor.

g) Competitive warranties. Lifetime warranty from a 100+ year old company certainly means more than one from a company who is in their first decade.
