What is a Self-Clad DIY Fire Pit?

With the Coronavirus having a huge impact on how we have been socialising over the past couple of years we have seen a huge increase in Gas Fire Pit sales. This is mainly down to the boom in garden design and renovation so we can all socialise in our gardens safely. With an increase in sales comes the large variety of Garden Fire Pits and models that are now available. We have ranges of fully finished Concrete Gas Fire Pits in a range of colours and sizes as well as Gas Fire Pit Burner Kits and also Self Clad DIY Fire Pits. You may know what a burner kit is already, but we commonly get asked, What is a Self Clad DIY Fire Pit?

A DIY Self Clad Fire pit is a great choice for if you want a more bespoke look for your fire pit but don’t want all the hassle of building your own structure to clad. Constructed using a light steel frame and exterior grade cement board we have 4 designs to choose from with rectangle and square designs that are ready to be clad in your chosen finish. Everything you need is included with the product other than your chosen finish to suit your garden.


Popular choices to clad a DIY Gas Fire Pit in range from slate, concrete renders, granite and marble. As well as contrasting materiel’s mentioned above its also incredibly popular to clad in the same materiel as your patio area. This creates the effect that your Gas Fire Pit is coming out of the ground and doesn’t take up much visual space which makes it a great choice for gardens on the smaller side.

Installation is relatively simple and if you have installed a Propane BBQ before then you can install one of our fire pits. The only thing you may need a tradesperson for would be the cladding depending on the materiel you choose. The cut out for the Gas Fire Pit Burner Kit is already cut so there is no guesswork to the sizes you work to.
