Protect your deck or patio from the heat of a fire pit.

Safe use of a fire pit on your deck

Recommended by the Experts
When This Old House magazine did a section "All About Fire Pits," they included a write-up on DeckProtect™. Here is what they said:
"A fire screen can contain errant sparks and embers on a wood deck, but composite decking needs to be protected from the bowl as well. A metal fire pit can reach up to 800°F, pushing 200° to 400° of radiant heat onto decking; plastics soften at 176° and melt between 250° and 350°. A thermal barrier can prevent high heat from warping composites. DeckProtect (shown) is an aluminum tray, perforated for drainage, that contains flameproof basalt rock-fiber insulation. Choose one the size of the fire pit’s circumference to fit between the legs or, better yet, with all four legs on the mat."

Corona Virus Update

We are carefully following CDC recommendations to keep our employees safe and our facility free of the virus. The materials that go into the manufacture of DeckProtect have been in our inventory for 14 days or longer. Packaging materials are sanitized before shipping.

We do recommend certain precautions when receiving packages from any vendor. Cardboard outer packaging could have been compromised somewhere along the shipping route.
— Let the carrier leave the package outside.
— Since cardboard can house the Corona virus for as long as a week, consider wearing gloves and unpacking outside.
— Wash your hands or use sanitizer after the bringing the product inside.

New Product!

It turns out that a number of fire pits are a little to big for their feet to sit comfortably on our 24" DeckProtect, but not big enough to justify getting the 30" DeckProtect. So we are pleased to announce a new in-between size.

New Section

We have added a page for specific fire tables. Having made custom-sized DeckProtect for a number of customers with rectangular fire tables, we are able to add these sizes as standard sizes: Fire Table Sizes Page
