Details: PURPOSE: Protects wood & composite decks, patios, concrete & lawn areas from heat damage created by portable gas & wood burning Fire Pits & Chiminea's. FUNCTION: Place "Deck Defender" under your Fire Pit or Chiminea and burn as usual without the fear of heat damage to the area. OPERATION METHOD: Deck Defender blocks heat by balancing three elements that apply to the principles of radiant heat transfer. 1) High shine metals reflect heat, 2) Aluminum acts as a heat sink, and 3) Multi layered metals with air spaces in between create an insulation effect because air is a poor conductor of heat. NASA uses this principle in insulating space suits & crafts. Simple, lightweight, no moving parts or necessary maintenance. TESTED: It's 100% fire-proof & has been extensively tested to extreme conditions. Fire pits average app. 1,200 degrees F. max. "Deck Defender" has been tested up to 1,700 degrees F - so use with confidence. MATERIALS: Aluminum top plate and lower steel sub-frame operate together in a 2-piece construction. Powder coated frame includes wide feet for lawn applications. Quality U.S.A. materials are hand crafted for longevity and appearance. "Deck Defender" is outdoor storage safe. It sits above the deck providing airflow to prevent moisture from accumulating. SIZE & CAPACITY: 26" square x 4" high. Weighs 24 lbs. Capacity 350 lbs. Draw a 26" square on your driveway with chalk and set your fire pit on top to see if it fits the Deck Defender before purchasing. Note your fire pit legs can straddle the Deck Defender as long as the bottom sits no closer than 2" above the unit. MFG: U.S.A. APPLICATION: Use with standard gas & wood burning Fire Pits & Chiminea's. WARNING: NOT FOR USE with oxygen supplied fires. Oxy-fuel combustion is the process of burning a fuel using pure oxygen instead of air as the primary oxidant. This creates much higher flame temperatures than air-fuel flames.
