Custom Made Fire Pit Safety Screens
A Fire Pit Screen in my opinion is not an optional piece of equipment. It should be the LAW and it's getting that way in many parts of the country.
When I have the luxury of talking to our clients I always tell them that if your in doubt about why you need a fire pit screen then use your fire pit and see why first hand.
It's dangerous without the screen and it's just an uncomfortable feeling. How can you relax? And isn't that why you built the fire pit.
If your comparing screens make sure the comparison is using Stainless Steel Mesh. Anything other then SS is a waste of money.
If you buy from Dancing Fire Inc. you are buying direct from the manufacture. No middle man.
We custom manufacture Fire Pit spark/ember safety screens. We use the finest material out there. Our screens are crafted in Fort Worth Texas.
We have been making these screens for many years and we were the first on the internet offering custom made and sized screens.
Our quality is unsurpassed and we take great pride in our work.
My name is Jim Jarvis and own Dancing Fire Inc and if you have any questions my cell number is 817.946.6463 so call if you have any questions.
We only offer two types of screens and we have options with both.
We make a one piece screen that you slide out of they way to add wood and we make a four piece screen. This screen the front two pieces are independent doors that open out.
Any other type of screen that you would like crafted please call and we can discuss the project.
I don't believe in the type of screen that has two half pieces with one side opening into the other.
This is fine for an "Out of the box" replacement but not on your beautiful rock fire pit.
And I question the longevity because if the screen warps at all the pieces won't fit and that they look really odd on your fire pit.
The one piece screen we suggest this size up to 36".
Any size larger then this is expensive to ship and by the time you add on the additional shipping it works out to the same price as the upgraded screen with door.
And if you see a one piece screen on the market that is over 9" tall question the quality of material.
The Stainless Steel mesh material we use is so heavy duty we can only manipulate it to achieve a height of 8 to 10 inches.
The four piece screen pictured above comes in any size you choose.
We've made then 12' in diameter before so we can accommodate any needs you may have.
If you have questions please call Jim.
We have two options on the four piece screen.Both options we use the same Stainless Steel mesh material.
The Standard screen we make is made using Stainless Steel mesh material and carbon steel for the frame. This is our most popular.
The other option is using the same mesh material but upgrading to a 100% stainless steel screen. Frame, hinges and everything is SS.
This screen is less maintainence and will not rust.
You can make the choice using the drop down menu above.
As far as delivery time goes? You will see your screen usually well within ten days. We ship via Fedex.
Please note that the prices do not include shipping,
Shipping is calculated at the time of shipping after the screen is made, weight and box measured. This gives us the best opportunity to shop freight.

Our fire pit screens are an excellent way to top off your beautiful fire pit. The screen just adds that finishing touch.
The screen mesh is 304 stainless steel. The frame is made of 1/4" x 1" and/or 3/16 x 1" solid steel.
The hinges that support the doors were rebuilt and we use stainless steel hinge pins so they won't rust.
We tried engineering the screen so that we didn't use any bolts but we had to use only one.
All other joints are put together using pins. This makes it easy to assemble and the joints won't oxidize together over time.
The screen material being SS will expand when it gets hot therefore we don't weld the screen. It's sandwiched between two pieces
of steel allowing the material the ability to expand and cool down without putting any stress on the material.
Then we use a paint that we have add formulated to with stand 1400 degrees. This is the best in the industry so I have been told.
What size fire pit screen do you need?
What I have seen that works and looks good is take the inside diameter and add 2" to each side.
The fire pit screen will sit on the flat ledge (Coping) and you are going to want it to sit in at least two inches on each side.
Example: If you have a fire pit that has an inside diameter of 36", add two inches to each side and this would make the fire pit screen 40". 36"+2"+2"=40".
This is just a suggestion as we will make it any way you want it. But this formula looks good. This is the method we used on the pictures shown here.

Please Note We Do Not Warranty the Paint.
We suggest that when you order the screen ask for an extra can of special heat resistant paint $15 extra.
This is a steel product that your putting into a fire. It will, not if, need touching up at sometime.
It may also get a few scratches during shipping so we include, as a gift, a free Small can of special paint.
