“I absolutely love it. Both my partner and myself think it was a fantastic investment and it certainly adds a lot to our outdoor space. The gas fitting was involved but James ( from Accolade Plumbing and Heating ) was great and made it as painless as possible. Cheers”

“Each time we complete another successful project together, I become more impressed with their innovative designs, beauty and uniqueness of their products and of course, the quality.”
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 manual lit burner and the vessel. 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 standard Firebowl Hemi 36 is available with a certified outdoor natural gas or propane burner that produces a substantial 60,000 btu flame. It has a simple key valve and is manually lit. There are other burners available from 120,000 to 180,000 btus. Plus an electronic hot start with wall switch, timer or remote is also available and features 60,000 or 120,000 btu options. The fire pit is complete with a lava/fire rock 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. All our popular colours and base models are available for quick ship within 2 – 10 days. 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. Other options include a Solus custom fit all weather cover of marine grade Sunbrella material, firestone and now fireglass ( 4 colours ). We are also pleased to announce that the price of our flagship model has been reduced in 2014 for the standard 60,000 btu model ( manual lit ng or lp ).
