Metal fire pits are gaining in popularity in the metal industry as the demand for fire pits is growing, according to metal manufacturer Metal Firepit.
“Metal fire pits have been in the marketplace for a while,” said Metal Firepot CEO and CEO Mike Mcelroy.
“The market demand for them is skyrocketing and we’re seeing it everywhere,” he said.
Metal Firepits has been around since 1988.
The company was founded in 1989 and has been in business since 1996.
Metal firepits have become popular in the U.S. and abroad, particularly in the industry for home and office fire pits, Mcelryre said.
“They are the perfect fit for any space that you’re going to have a fire pit,” Mcelrryre told ABC News.
Metal fires are lighter, cheaper, and much more durable than metal boxes.
Metal Fires, which is based in the United Kingdom, produces fire pits with a diameter of 6 feet or about 8.5 inches.
Metal Boxes, which are also made in the UK, are the most common type of fire pit and have a diameter between 3 feet and 5 feet.
Metalfirepits sells metal fire pits in large numbers, and Mcelsoryre said they have expanded their product line since launching the first metal firepit in 2007.
“We’ve gone from producing metal firepets in one country to a worldwide operation,” Mcelorro said.
The demand for metal fireplaces is high, and demand has driven up prices of metal firepots, he said, with metal fire pit prices on the rise.
“It’s a huge market and we’ve been able to ramp up production from our initial capacity of about 400,000 metal fire pits in a month,” Mcellryre explained.

Metalpaint.com, a leading online retailer for metal products, is based out of a two-story building on the edge of downtown Boston.
“For years, Metalfire pits were a great niche product,” said John Stinson, the company’s general manager of sales and marketing.
“With the rise of metal and the internet, the demand has been incredible and the metal fire is the perfect fire for that,” he added.
The product line has expanded to include firepoles with a metal exterior, metal firebox, and metal fireproofing.
“There’s more demand for the fireproof firepit because of the availability of these high-quality metal fire spits,” Stinson said.
For the past four years, metalpaint has been able on-demand to deliver the metalfirepets to stores and customers, according, Mcellrryr.
Metal is not a substitute for steel, and is only used to create a fire, according the company.
“What we are doing is a pure metal fire with a steel surface,” Mclryre added.
“That is the way it was meant to be used in the past.”
The firepit is made with aluminum and steel, which give it the best protection against the elements.
Metalfishing.com is based on a two story building in downtown Chicago and is able to offer metal fireballs to customers at a price that makes the product worth the purchase.
