What Wind Guard Works with Your Fire Pit?

How to Determine What Wind Guard Works for You:

Wind guards are designed to complement your fire pit as well as prevent the flame from blowing around excessively or blowing out all together. Wind guards are also used to prevent loose items from getting too close to the flame.

All of our wind guards are made with tempered glass which ensures they are durable and built to last. We recommend having 2.5” of clearance on each side (5" total) between your fire pit opening and the wind guard for optimal performance. The wind guards are meant to sit on the outside of your fire pit opening.

Installation is easy! Simply connect the tempered glass pieces together with the included brackets and support feet then set on the outside of your fire pit opening and enjoy.

When to Use a Round Glass Wind Guard:

You will use a round glass wind guard if you have a round shaped pan and burner or round opening.

How to Measure for a Round Wind Guard:

Use a tape measure or ruler to measure the diameter of your fire pit opening. This number will be considered the width - you can now find a wind guard with at least this width, but ideally you will factor in a few inches for clearance. Be sure to use our Overall Width filter when shopping for glass guards.

How to Measure for a Square Wind Guard:

When to Use a Rectangle Glass Wind Guard:

You will use a rectangle glass wind guard if you have a rectangle shaped pan and burner or rectangular opening.

How to Measure for a Rectangle Wind Guard:

Use a tape measure or ruler to measure both the long and short sides of your fire pit opening. Use the longer side as the width - you can now use our Overall Width filter to find a wind guard with at least this width, but ideally you will factor in a few inches for clearance. After you find a wind guard that matches the width, now find the closest match to your short side.
