The Solus Outdoor fire pit Hemi 36 is the flagship and the first fire pit Solus ever produced. We would like to take credit as an original idea but the truth of the matter is that a designer in Victoria BC asked us to design a “vessel” of Solus concrete that could be sunk into an Infinity pool which would erupt with fire. Could we create such a thing ? We answered “yes we can” and this launched us into a line of fire pits that we now sell around the globe. One simple idea sparked ( bad pun ) Solus into a different orbit ( second bad pun ! ). A stunning focal point to any outdoor space, this 36” diameter hemispherical fire pit is both substantial and restrained in design. Built to withstand the extreme climates of hot and cold that we experience in Canada. It is made our ultra high performance concrete which is unique to Solus ( please see our ATSM test results ). Solus fire pits weather extremely well and will withstand the tests of time. In fact we offer the best warranty in the business – 5 years on the burner. Our bowls will not shale, spall or fall apart. All concrete is not created equal. It is not lightweight or fibrecrete which is a very distant and poor alternative to ultra high performance Solus concrete. The Solus thin elegant profile adds an artistic architectural element to any outdoor space. At 16.5” tall, the Firebowl creates an instant gathering place for relaxed conversations, dining atmosphere or backyard campfire marshmallows.
The entire Solus line of natural gas fire pits are certified as appliances NOT just burners. Using Canadian CSA 2.41-2014 and ANSI Z21.97-2014 ( American ) outdoor decorative gas standards. Certification for Europe is underway and we expect our CE marking by early spring 2016.
The standard Firebowl Hemi 36 is available with an outdoor natural gas, propane or bio fuel burner that produces between 40 – 60,000 btu flame depending on the configuration. It has a simple key valve and is manually lit. An electronic hot start with wall switch, timer or remote. The fire pit is complete with a lava/fire stone topping. Should a resort, hotel or restaurant select this fire pit it can be ordered with an additional glass protective shield.
The Firebowl Hemi 36 is available in 10 Solus High Performance Concrete colours. Solus has also designed a custom ipe hardwood table top which can be utilized on those days that you need a table and not necessarily a roaring fire. Our Ipe tabletop is milled from a sustainable forest in South America and it is absolutely gorgeous. We have also just launched a 7″ drinks ring and matches the outside diameter of the bowl at 36″. Other options include a Solus custom fit all weather cover and additional firestone.
