HOW MUCH DO YOUR FIRES COST?

We have a range of different models and pricing for different countries, in NZ our prices range from $6,500 to $8,200, plus options and install. In Canada and Australia the prices are slightly higher to allow for international freight, but we do really well at keeping those costs low.

No matter where you live globally, having this incredible NZ product is still very cost effective.

CAN I INSTALL MY OWN FLARE FIREPLACE?

Many people choose to install their Flare Outdoor Fireplace. All you need is someone who is practical enough to follow the installation instructions on our installation page.

You can use a hiab, forklift, gantry, digger or tractor to install your fire, as long as the equipment used is able to lift 1,300kg, (the weight of the heaviest component).

HOW HEAVY ARE FLARE’S OUTDOOR FIREPLACES?

The firebox is the heaviest component of the fireplace, weighing in at around 1300kg. The chimney is around 700kg and the woodboxes 950kg.

WHAT KIND OF PREPARED SURFACE IS NEEDED?

This can vary depending on your circumstances and fire model. A concrete pad is fine, we recommend the pad meets our manufacturer’s specs, some models can be installed onto good ground. You can request the manufacturer’s specs for the footing from us.

WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF FLARE OUTDOOR FIREPLACES?

The Flare Fire is modular with the fire box and wood boxes each being 1360W X 720D. A Standard and Deluxe is 1360 wide. A Premier is 2720 wide, an Executive or Senator is 4080 wide.

WILL I NEED TO GET PERMISSION FROM THE COUNCIL?

It depends where you are located. There are times when a building consent is needed, and/or sometimes a resource consent. It is best to check with your local council. Tell them you are building an ‘outdoor concrete barbie’.

WHOM OBTAINS CONSENT IF I NEED IT?

Either yourself or your installer will need to obtain consents.

WHO DO I GET TO INSTALL MY FLARE OUTDOOR FIREPLACE?

People often DIY install, however installers can also be landscapers, builders, stone-masons and so on. Contact us for installers in your area.

DOES FLARE FIRES INSTALL?

Yes we can install in many areas. Please contact us to check our availability.

IS THE OUTDOOR FIREPLACE COVERED BY INSURANCE IN TRANSIT?

Yes, your fireplace is covered by Insurance while in transit.

WILL THE WEIGHT OF THE FIREPLACE AND TRUCK DAMAGE MY DRIVEWAY?

This is a possibility. We suggest the company dropping the fireplace to complete a site inspection prior. Care should be taken.

CAN THIS FIREPLACE BE PUT ON A WOODEN DECK?

Some people have done this. Either the deck will need strengthening in the fireplace location or a concrete base built up to the fireplace position. Installing onto a wood deck does not meet our current PS1 requirements, so engaging an engineer would be advised.

CAN FIREPLACES BE CRANED OVER A HOUSE INTO DIFFICULT TO REACH LOCATIONS?

Yes this is a very common occurrence. Because of the modular design the maximum weight of any one piece is 1,100kg, so an average crane or large Hiab can lift the modules 20-40 metres into your property. Your next question will be but isn’t that really expensive? Cranes vary in price from $150 – $300+ per hour but installation should take 3 hours (maximum) depending on the fireplace model. So at the end of the day it is often the most cost effective and simplest way to go.

Solid masonry construction provides huge residual heat distribution, holding and distributing the heat and as the fire is built directly on top of the firebricks – this provides a solid, warming fire that burns slowly.

WILL THE STEEL FIREBOX RUST?

There is no steel firebox to rust and stain your deck, no need to put unsightly covers over the firebox to stop it from rusting while not in use.

ARE FLARE OUTDOOR FIREPLACES SAFE FOR CHILDREN?

Flare Outdoor Fireplaces have their fireboxes set at a height that is safe for children. The front of the firebox has a stainless steel shield to protect against log roll out, this is also double folded to reduce the risk of burns.

SHOULD I OPT FOR A WOOD OR GAS-FUELLED OUTDOOR FIREPLACE?

Wood has a lot more ambiance and a wider variety of uses. Gas is good if the area is small or enclosed or if fire restrictions are in place.

CAN YOU COOK PIZZAS ON THE FLARE OUTDOOR FIREPLACE?

Yes, using a pizza stone on either the swinging cooking frame or the cooking hood over our standard cooking frame.
