Weathering steel, also referred to as Corten steel, oxidises to form a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather. Unlike other steels this corrosion-retarding layer protects the steel from degradation. Even stainless steel will tarnish with the heat and loose it’s shiny new look quickly. So you can rest assured that not only will your firepit fire be safe to leave outside, but that it will look even better over time.
The design of the Vortex firepit eliminates almost all smoke. A traditional firepit will produce significant quantities of smoke so that users need to move upwind during use and change their clothes after use. The clever secondary airwash of the Vortex firepit takes air from the bottom of the firepit, heats it and then injects it into the top of the combustion chamber. This injection of oxygen allows the flame to burn much hotter and cleaner allowing you to say goodbye to smoke!
