FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about Fire Bowls
Q: Can I use an iron fire bowl on a wood deck?
A: Timeless Wrought Iron does not recommend using fire bowls on wood decks because of the risk of fire. If you do place this on your wood deck it is recommended you put a non flammable base down to reduce heat transfer and protect against sparks. The larger your fire and the longer it burns the more heat will be transferred to your wood deck. This heat can cause discoloration to the wood and finishes; in the most extreme cases it could start a fire. You should also check with your city/town to see if there are any ordinances that may prohibit open flame fires on wood decks. In general use common sense when having a fire, if you have to ask yourself, "should I be doing this?" your probably shouldn't be doing it.
Q: How do you secure the Fire Bowl to the ground, or surface?
A: Homeowners - Typically you dont have to secure our fire bowls to the ground because the weight alone from the thick iron is going to keep them in place. Unless your platform is not stable or you have regular tornado like winds this fire bowl is not going to move on you. If you want to secure it some custom fabrication may be necessary.
A: Contractors - You will want to consider where this fire bowl is going; certain applications like mounting them on tall pillars, or in commercial places may require them to be secured. Check with your local city/town ordinances for any details regarding commercial applications. If you must secure it some custom fabrication may be necessary.

Q: Does water collect inside the fire bowl if it rains?
