A fire glass is a type of glass that retains the heat that comes in an array of shapes and sizes and is used to direct and retain the intensity of heat in a fireplace. It does not burn at any point and can retain the highest level of heat possible. It is mostly used for the sole purpose of safety in the home as it prevents the unexpected breakout of a fire. It is the most trusted alternative when setting up a fireplace as it has some benefits.
Benefits of a fire glass
Does not emit toxic smoke fumes as compared to artificial logs which are said to contain a harmful substance called asbestos.
It is durable
Once lit, it never burns out and goes on for hours and hours on end unless it grows monotonous and you decide to put it out yourself. Can withstand the highest of temperatures. Being heated and melted caused it to be this tough, so you have nothing to worry about when your fireplace burns ferociously.
It lights up your living room in the literal sense
Since it comes in different colors, once combined and lit up, it sends the room into a colorful frenzy. You cannot compare fire glass to wood as any wood has a tendency to crack and split when the temperatures are at their highest peak. In worst case scenarios, some houses end up in ashes as these tiny splits of wood reach the highly flammable objects in the living room. Whichever type you choose, whether it is the raw and rougher version or the shinier glossier type, it will set your living room in the desirable cozy atmosphere we all long for when we get home.
They fit in fire pits installed anywhere
Fire glass is not as bulky as wood. They have a high aesthetic value as they can bring out the true homely feel and attractive look of your living room or even garden. Fire glass is the modern day centerpiece that can light up your house and make it come to life.
What’s more, you are at liberty to match your upholstery and interior colors with those of the fire glass. Most importantly, they prevent any breathing complications as they emit nothing but heat and not toxic fumes accompanied by smoke as would artificial and natural kinds of wood. Fire glass is absolutely safe to use in your home and does not pose any kind of risks to your health.
