Fire pits are one of the most sought after design elements requested by UK homeowners for their backyard.

Undeniably, fire pits are a great entertaining addition to your outdoor garden space, but the key to enjoying is staying safe. So, here we look at those 5 basic but very important fire pit safety tips one should consider.

  • Location

An area in your outdoor space which is wide open and unobstructed by overhanging branches or trees, you should choose the area wisely. The fire pit should ideally be away from wooden decks, fences, plants and neighbour’s yard. Covered patios or canopies are a big no-no.

  • The right fuel

Gas operated fire pits allow you minimum mess. However, you need to be cautious while choosing the fuel. Propane gas makes for a quick lighting solution. At Brooks Rattan Garden Furniture , you will find extensive variety of gas operated fire pit dining sets which are designed to ensure maximum safety.

  • Avoid using fuel accelerants

Stay away from fuel accelerants like lighter fluid as an accidental spill may even cause an explosion and also uncontrollable fire situations. Moreover, such fire accelerants release toxic fumes too and so not advisable from health perspective too.

  • Keep an eye on weather report

Windy days can play a spoil sport and so it is better to get the weather report before hand and plan your outdoor parties accordingly. Fire can unexpectedly spread and cause damage to life and property. Moreover, it is important to also take a note of any “no burn” announcement from the government in order to check the carbon dioxide level.

  • Use fire screen for extra safety

To make sure that the fire is in the fire pit and not elsewhere, fire screens come quite handy.
