What resistance to heat does this stainless flexible gas line have? If I use this product to hook-up a new 30" pan/24" ring set in an existing 30" fire pit structure, I'm concerned about the line's resistance to heat in the space under the pan. The pan

Our Answer:

This gas line has a rated temperature resistance that will more than exceed the possible air temperature below the pan. It is possible to use this line in direct proximity to open flame and thus will not pose any safety hazard. However, for better performance and cooling of the fire pit burner itself, it is highly recommended to install at least a pair of intake air vents in the base of the fire pit surround. This will allow cooling of the area below the pan, as well as better performance of the burner.

What resistance to heat does this stainless flexible gas line have? If I use this product to hook-up a new 30" pan/24" ring set in an existing 30" fire pit structure, I'm concerned about the line's resistance to heat in the space under the pan. The pan is a pretty tight fit into the fire pit structure, so there will be virtually no venting of the space below the pan. I know that most of the heat will rise as the jets are pointing up into the lava rock, but I assume the pan will absorb some of the heat and possible heat-up the empty space under the pan. The hook-up using this product would be much easier than using hard piping, but I don't want to create a safety hazard.
