How to Measure > Fire Pit + Chiminea + Patio Heater Covers
Measurements for your fire pit, chiminea, or patio heater can easily be found by using our diagrams and the following instructions:
H = Height, determined by measuring from the top of the item down to the ground.
L = Length, found simply by measuring the longest side of the item.
W = Width, found by measuring the side adjacent to the L side.
Dia = Diameter on round items, found by measuring from one side of the item across to the opposite side.
- Often times, fire pits can be covered with small table covers because the shapes and heights are similar to each other.
- Fire pit covers, chiminea covers and patio heater covers aren't intended to touch the ground so that air can properly circulate underneath the cover. Don't worry if the cover doesn't come all the way down to the ground.
- Bigger is better, so select an outdoor protective cover size that's slightly larger than your fire pit, chiminea or patio heater dimensions.
- Allow your patio heating appliance to cool down before covering to prevent the outdoor cover from getting damaged. A good rule of thumb is to wait until you can place your hand on the appliance near the heat source and hold it without having to remove it. If the appliance passes this cool down test, then it can be covered.
