This Giant Chimenea was inspired by the 42Fab design. We thought it was so great we wanted to make them available to everyone! We also introduced a second variation to the design to give you two distinct options:
- The standard chimenea with fire box and wood storage box.
- The aptly named firebox-only edition with only a single, slightly lower, fire box.
Both options are the same price, so feel free to choose the one that best meets your needs. Additionally, we offer these units in sizes ranging up to 10 feet, so whether you need one for a home or a resort we’ve got you covered!
Sizes and Scale
First of all, even our 7 foot tall chimenea is quite tall! It’s big enough to be the centerpiece of an area. But for those who are looking for something even larger, we can certainly push the limits on the size even more. For example, here’s the 10′ tall version with Austin standing beside it for reference. He’s over 6′ tall, so it really puts things into perspective.
The dimensions for the various sizes of chimeneas are:
- 7 foot: Base – 24″ square, tapering up to 12″ square opening at top.
- 8 foot: Base – 28″ square, tapering up to 14″ square opening at top.
- 9 foot: Base – 30″ square, tapering up to 15″ square opening at top.
- 10 foot: Base – 36″ square, tapering up to 18″ square opening at top.
Fabrication and Assembly
These fire pits are CNC cut from heavy 10 gauge steel plate. They come off the robot in several pieces which then have to be hand assembled.
Each piece is laid out and clamped securely to a fixture welding table to ensure perfect alignment and flatness.
All of the pieces are spot welded together, followed by completely welding 100% of the seams. This product requires over 30 feet of continuous welding!
Finally, once the parts are completely welded they are artistically ground smooth to hide all of the seams.
These chimeneas are built to last a lifetime, and will naturally rust to a beautiful patina over time.
One of the great things about these chimeneas is that the design funnels all of the smoke upwards. Since the walls slope inwards, the rising heat accelerates to push the smoke overhead. At the same time, in order to keep the area safe and the fire where it belongs, we include a custom Spark Arrestor built into every unit.
The spark arrestor is comprised of three parts:
- A base panel which is welded into the chimenea, with a threaded hole in the center.
- A fine stainless steel mesh designed to capture embers.
- A top panel to hold the mesh in place.
This system allows for future replacement of the mesh to ensure longevity.
In addition to protecting the environment around the chimenea, we also designed these units to protect themselves by draining water when they are exposed to the elements. The fire shelf, and bottom panels fit tightly on two edges, while leaving a small gap on the other two edges to allow water to drain.
Of course, all of these features are hidden inside these fire pits in order to ensure they make for a truly magnificent sight!
