What are Fire Pit Bricks?
Fire pit bricks, also known as refractory bricks are used in blast furnaces because of their low thermal conductivity and insulate the heat from the furnace.
Fire pit bricks provide double the benefit of making the furnace hotter and more efficient, as well as protecting the outside of the furnace from excess heat.
This type of brick is much denser than regular bricks and goes through a kiln process to be able to withstand high temperatures.
There are 2 types of fire bricks, hard brick and soft brick. Hard bricks are very dense and durable and used for their structural qualities. They can be found most often as the main building component of large kilns, chimneys, fireboxes and burner ports.
Where are Fire Pit Bricks Used?
Fire pit bricks are frequently used to construct kilns, furnaces and other high temperature enclosures. The refractory brick reduces heat loss and the chance of an unintended fire.
A Fire pit brick is a common building material used in the construction of fireplace and furnace linings.
The composition of the refractory brick will determine what temperatures it can withstand.
Fire pit bricks role is to reflect heat back into the firebox while maintaining a degree of protection for the inner steel area of the firebox. It’s considered essential that you check your firebricks on a regular basis to ensure that they are not cracked or damaged in any way.

Fire Pit Bricks Differences
A fire pit brick is a block of refractory ceramic material used in lining furnaces, kilns, fireboxes, and fireplaces. A refractory brick is designed mainly to withstand high heat, but should also usually have a low thermal conductivity to save energy.Order Fire Pit Bricks

You’ll need 80 face bricks for a 3-ft. -diameter pit. Face brick with holes (“cored”) is easy to split with a brick hammer. It’s easier to form the curve of the pit walls with half bricks.Order Fire Pit Bricks
Fire Pit Brick Size
A good rule of thumb is to make an above-ground fire pit 12-14 inches tall. This is a few inches shorter than standard patio furniture seat height. If you want to be able to sit on the edge of the pit itself go a bit higher, 18-20 inches will be comfortable.Order Fire Pit Bricks
Fire Pit Brick Installation
Concrete pavers or patio slabs are a good idea for setting your fire pit on. Concrete won’t catch fire, plus they are heavy and sturdy enough to provide stability. Make sure the fire pit isn’t wobbly – check the level and dig them in if necessary. Fire-resistant pit mats are a great solution out on grass.Order Fire Pit Bricks
Fire Pit Brick Materials
For domestic uses, such as ovens, barbecue grills and fireplaces, the refractory bricks used are usually composed of clay containing mainly alumina and silica, elements capable of withstanding high temperatures. While alumina has reflective qualities, silica is an excellent insulator.Order Fire Pit Bricks
