Welcome



Our Vortex Fires are manufactured for both indoor and outdoor use.  However, if you plan to use them indoors you must make sure to comply with local building codes

Our Vortex Fires are naturally aspirated - meaning there are no electronics involved.  The swirling flame is generated by how we engineered its construction.  

All our Vortex Fires are built to order and can be modified to fit your design needs. 
Construction time ranges from 5 to 8 weeks depending on our workload.

This was a "Lava Heat"  lamp, that a customer wished to have convert into a vortex fire.  The Vortex was clear glass and fueled by natural gas.

We played with the color of the flame by carbortating the air, (air mixer)  which results in a fluctuation between blue and yellow flames.

Our customer was thrilled to have his one-of-kind fire feature.  And we hope he sends us some final photos of the converted Lava Lamp at home.

The following photos were sent to us from our customer Ricky, whom ordered a total of 3 natural gas Vortex's.  This particular one had a 24" dual feed Stainless Steel burner ring installed at its base surrounding the Vortex itself in fire.

The Vortex was the center piece to a custom outdoor sitting area. Situated in moderately windy area it did not require a windshield encasing.   The glass used was a a Graylite Reflective with a base of  Black Magic under a white sand.

This next Vortex project belongs to Alfie Petit in Palm Springs, California.  One of our favorite and most colorful clients, Alfie designed this outdoor sitting area with our Vortex as its center piece. We installed a 42" center-less stainless steel ring which made a fire pit all around the Vortex.  Here ae some photos of the installation.

Here are a few pictures of 5 of our Vortex Fires located in the Prive Las Vegas night club located at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas.  These pictures were taken just after construction but the gas was not connected at that time. We will go back later and take pictures of all 5 Vortex Fires burning at one time.

The center Vortex is 48" tall, on either side they are 36" tall and the end Vortex Fires are 24" tall. The glass that was used was a clear crystal with only a bottom frame. The top was free floating. These are located just behind the main bar in the large picture window open to the balcony.

If you notice the hole in the front, it is light the ignition system in the event it does want to light because of moisture. We also use this hole to lift and remove this glass panel to clean the interior if it is ever needed. "Don't build a car and weld the hood shut." The batteries are accessible from and under the bottom side.
