Vega Gas Fire Pit
The Vega Gas Fire Pit really is the party piece for those who like to impress their alfresco guests. The crisp, clean flame can be large and eye-catching, or use the flow adjustor to bring it down to an ambient flicker. Designed and manufactured in the UK from high grade stainless steel and powder-coated pressed steel, this quality piece of hardware has been built to last
DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN THE UK designed and made in Hampshire, British engineering is the reason for the inherent quality and performance of the Vega Gas Fire pit
QUALITY COMPOSITION the main body of the fire pit is powder-coated fabricated steel, housing a burner unit and feed-in tubes made from marine grade 316 stainless steel. The remaining stainless steel components are high grade 304, for an assurance of quality and longevity. A Piezo spark ignitor is housed next to the stainless steel flow adjustor to start the fire reliably. The Vega is built to endure the high temperatures it operates at
PORTABLE at a sensible weight the Vega can be on the patio one day, the lawn the next
CONVENIENT AND CLEAN unlike solid fuel fire pits, the Vega can be lit in an effortless, whimsical fashion. No dirty charcoal to handle, and no frustration with trying to get a fire started. The flame burns at complete combustion, so it is consistently clean and pleasant. Goodbye to irritating plumes of smoke!
SERIOUS HEAT IF YOU NEED IT use the flow control valve to bring the flame and heat right up to its maximum of 18kw. The heat circle it creates surpasses most conventional gas patio heaters, so suffice to say that the Vega isn't just for show. It does the job of keeping people warm, and it does it well
SAFETY CE approved, flame failure auto cut-off
SET-UP comes complete with lava rock and 4 metres of hose to connect to a gas bottle regulator (not supplied). The Vega produces intense heat, so care needs to be taken when positioning it on sensitive surfaces. On decking and grass for example, the fire pit would need to stand on top of a standard 60 x 60cm patio slab to protect these surfaces
GAS REQUIRED propane
METRICS dimensions = 61 x 61 x 35cm, weight without lava rock = 16kg, weight with lava rock = 31kg, set up time = attach legs, add lava rock, attach hose (total time 15 mins), max heat rating = 18kw
CARE the fire pit should not be left outside when not in use. It must be moved in to a dry environment

The delivery was quick and the product works very well. My friends are impressed by it. Shame about the cost, but there doesn't seem to be a competitor to this model!?
RESPONSE FROM GARDENITEMS.CO.UK: thank you for your comments, and we're pleased you like the quality of the Vega. The pricing is very much related to the good quality that you mention. This product is through-and-through British made using British steel, and fabricated by British engineers. Perhaps the same product could be made in the Far-East, but would you then have the same quality you mention? - possibly not. Thank you again for your comments, and for not marking down on the basis of the price, as this is largely beyond our control

I have just finished installing this on my new deck, running the gas line straight down underneath the joist to conceal it. It looks great, and when you crank the flame right up the amount of heat is more than enough. Was advised that I should not cook on it, but can't see any harm in placing a foil wrapped potato on top of the larva rock?
RESPONSE FROM GARDENITEMS.CO.UK: pleased to hear you like your Vega Gas Fire Pit. Please do not cook any foods or put any objects on top of the larva rock. The burner beneath has to function with out any weight on it. It is better to be safe and follow the manufacturer guidelines. Thank you for your order and positive review
