Fire pit covers have already become an integral part of every courtyard and private garden with a fire pit inside. An open fire not only makes a house a home, but also warms in cool evenings allowing to spend time outdoors despite the weather, and is completely safe when it is lit at such an intended for it place. Using a cover which was elaborated specially for a small or middle-sized fire pit has plenty going, which makes so popular the fire pit covers round the world.
You could have seen a type of fire pit covers - round metal plates, made either of aluminum or of a harder iron like steel. These plates are to be used daily or when the fire is made rather often. The top blocks the oxygen affluxion and the fire will by all means go out even in case it has not been extinguished properly, so that one might be completely sure of fire safety. There is also no use spreading the ashes on a large area mucking your hands and polluting the atmosphere, as it is usually demanded. Just leave the ashes inside the fire pit under the cover and throw it down into a usual rubbish bin before lighting a fire next time.
There has been created another type of fire pit covers square or round by form. It is commonly made of thin materials as vinyl or polyester and used in cases when the fire pit is supposed not to be used for a long time, for example before leaving for holidays or in the beginning of winter. The cover's parameters as size, form and material should depend not only from the outdoor fireplace size, but also from the holding conditions. A simplest cover is needed for a fire pit stored under a roof, because it should protect only from outdoor rubbish and not from the rain. But if a fire pit stands at an opened for the winds, rains and snowfalls place, one should choose a qualitative cover with good characteristics to preserve his cosy fireplace pit for many years along.
