Introduction:

These copper fire pit covers have been a surprisingly popular item for our work load. They are an attractive solution that is pretty much maintenance free, last longer, much more stable in a windstorm, and do not troth rain water. Since they are not light like a canvas cover they do requires some effort to lift it off and set out of the way. Then return it when you're done with the fire pit to keep it nice and clean. I have been careful to list the size and weight of each cover listed below, so you can get an idea of how heavy they are.

Copper fire pit cover w/brass handlesCopper fire-pit cover

Below on this page we show a variety of different decorative custom copper cover styles, sizes, and price ranges for fire pits from the simple dome to the more ornate. They are a good way to help keep out falling debris and an excess of rain water while not in use. Who likes dealing with wet muddy leaves or ashes? These copper covers naturally turn a satin brown within a few months of exposure and get darker from there and will not mildew, so little if any cleaning of these covers are needed.

You can just cover your fire pit with an inexpensive canvas tarp. Which means you've already discovered how w/o some sort of support framework over the fire pit hole it sags in the middle and puddle with water and debris making a rather unpleasant mess to deal with. That's why you are here now looking for a better solution. Also, canvas covers are hard to keep in place during a wind storm, as they are more like a kite, where these copper covers are much heavier and stable. An aluminum cover would be a lot lighter for easier handling, but not nearly as durable and would get blown off more easily.

I do not have the tooling to make these seamless domes; which is called spinning copper, so we buy pre-formed seamless copper bowls adapted from a portable fire pit dish you see sold at hardware stores. They are often large enough for many round fire pits. steel fire-pit cover

We have a pipe bender we use to form a copper ring for the outer rim of these covers, which adds strength and more comfortable handling of these covers. If you still want to just cover your fire pit with a tarp we can build you a better copper pipe framework like this. Although, this is not a cheap solution, since the cost of a crate and freight charges may cost more than the pipe frame, so this has not been a common request, but we are always open to new ideas our Clients present. Custom work is our specialty, so don't be shy to ask for something not yet shown here on our web site.custom copper fire-pit cover w/vent cover

A rustic hammered look is preferred by many of our clients, so later on new dents and scratches are much less noticeable. Logic would suggest; why use a life-time metal like copper if it may become beaten up or damaged before long. The doming effect also helps to stiffen this thin sheet metal a bit, like with how most car fender panels are formed.

When we custom form a cover from flat sheet stock we use a thicker 24oz to 32oz copper for more strength and better wind resistance with the greater weight, but more effort is required to place and displace the cover each time. A 60" wide cover can weigh over 50#. This would not be a struggle for 2 people, but one person may find it a chore to move.

I can make these in several styles, sizes, and shapes to fit your desired look and function. I am careful not to give my Clients the impression I am trying to up-sell them, so I try not to push additional feature our Client had not asked for, so please be very specific with details you want when ordering one of these covers through e-mail.

We have found these 40" wide seamless domes to be a very popular solution. These were made to be a small fire pit, but we flip these over for use as a cover. To do this we have to angle the outer rim down to drain and shed debris better. They come with a steel ring inside the flat outer rim, which we have to carefully remove and flatten the outer edges.  Then attach a copper pipe under the outer edge for strength and better handling. We then affix the handles and a drop ring you may want added to this order.

Copper fire-pit cover

If you need a cover that is smaller or wider than 40" we can form custom shapes that are not seamless, or make a tapered extension rim under these to extend out further past the dome. Wider custom covers can be round, octagon, square, or rectangular with endoskeleton seams. 

Common Charges:Copper fire-pit cover

  • $700 for a 40" wide seamless smooth dome adapted w/pipe rim added; 16.6# (as shown here)

  • or $25# for custom 20oz, 24oz, or 32oz copper (based on weight per square foot).

  • $20 added per sq' for hammering of the copper sheet metal for a rustic texture.

  • Fire pit cover brass handle$150 for this 18" wide preformed smooth decorative seamless domed Derby hat style topper. I made a special purchase of these copper lids made for garden hose pots, which can add a fancy detail to these fire pit covers. They weigh just 3.2#. This can be used in lieu of a center handle for a cover that's not too large and heavy. These usually require a 1/2" pipe ring added to the outer rim and for transition to a larger main cover (as shown here)

  • $25# for drop ring to help keep this cover in place during wind storms w/o having to fasten it down; allowing for simple on and off movement. The cost can vary depending on the diameter and depth you need. It is best to add a small copper pipe along the bottom edge for durability and hide the sharp edge of the copper sheet metal.

  • Fire pit cover brass handle$25# for a copper pipe trim/rim for added strength and comfort to hide the sharp edges of the sheet metal. A ring can be formed in as little as a 1' diameter circle, up to a 6' 4" wide circle with a single seam using a 20' long pipe. These can be made using a 1/2", 3/4", or 1" pipe. The weight of a 10' type L pipe is 2.4# - 1/2", 4.2# - 3/4", 6.1# - 1". They sell a thinner type M copper pipe, but I work with the thicker type L pipe for added strength and dent resistance. Let me know if you want a thinner pipe used in stead for lighter weight.

    $30 to $50 each for simple knobs or D handles attached. Keep in mind most handles are made for indoors use and may not stand up well to outside exposure. The limited selection shown here has to do with the stock we have on hand, but we have the same access to thousands of different style as you do. You are welcome to order a set of handles you like and ship to us for attachment for just $25 each. Our primary aim is your long term satisfaction, so don't be shy to be decisive with these order.

  • Copper fire pit cover w/brass handles$100 each for large brass door levers installed. Finishes come in antique copper (dark orange), dark bronze (mostly black), and pewter (gray). No longer available in polished brass shown here, as Emtek discontinued this most popular item at the first of 2015.

A custom crate and freight is required if you do not happen to be local to the Portland, OR area:

  • around $10 to $15 sq' for our custom wood crate and packing material (less for large crates)

  • $180 or so for the 40" wide covers shipped through FedEx Ground in a wood crate.

  • $200 to $600 for truck freight delivered to a residence w/liftgate service. Note: I do not mark up the freight cost, so you are welcome to make your own shipping arrangements when your cover is done and crated.

Strength:
Since most of the cost you pay for any custom work like this is labor and freight; logic would dictate why bother using a life-time metal like copper if it is thin to save cost; when it would be so flimsy and most likely become dented and haggard looking within less than a decade of normal use? Although, thicker copper would be heavier to lift each time, so that is an important factor as well. Weight is good for stability in a wind storm, but can make use challenging for just one person.

For covers with flat sides I can make a wood shell inside for support of a thinner copper, but that does not seem to make it any lighter or cost less. Example: I made a 49" wide flat cover with a thinner 20oz copper, so it needed 1/2" thick plywood underneath for support, but it still weighed over 42#. Thicker copper may not be impervious to dents, but it will be a good deal more durable, and the added weight makes it less prone to get blown off in a harsh windstorm.

I could make these covers using a thicker 48oz copper, but it would be 150% heavier, so it is not as practical and more expensive of course. It is tricky to find just the right balance between strength, weight, and cost for the best possible long term results, but these seem to be working out well so far. The only complaint I've gotten was how it did not sit flat on their irregular stone hearth. It just needs rotated to find the best fit or a slight tweak to make it sit right and not teeter. Of course without being able to be there at your place there's no way I could possibly make sure these will fit to your stone surround just right, so some minor adjustment may be needed.

Cone Shaped Covers:
Made in just a 20oz copper would still last 7 to 8 decades if handled responsibly each time, and not subjected to flying debris in a wind storm. Each bend helps add strength. A steeper angle also adds more strength. They may be more prone to denting with normal use, but this would be the most practical cost wise, as well as light weight for easier handling. Although, with the lighter weight it would be wise to have a drop ring made to fit down inside the fire pit to help keep them from getting blown off in a windstorm, which defeats the purpose of using a thinner copper with the added weight of the drop ring.

If you are OK with a cone shaped covers with a single soldered seam they would be water tight still, and we can make them in any custom size or angle to fit your needs. They can be made square, rectangular, octagon, or 16 bends for a more circular look.

If you happen to be local to the Portland, OR area for as little as $300 you can have a basic 36" wide copper cover w/o handles or drop ring. Here's a couple pics to give you and idea of what they could look like:

fire-pit cover w/bronze looking handles

For better durability I can make these in a thicker copper and or add copper piping along the outer rim to add strength and better handling. In this style runs $25# + handles, crate, and freight charges.

Handles:
Emtek made this fancy swirl style door handle you'll see on most of our covers, but they discontinued them at the beginning of 2015. Fusion hardware make a similar handle, but not in the polished brass tone. They are made with solid brass, but only come in antique copper (orangeish brown), dark bronze (mostly black), and pewter (gray). They run $100 each installed. They have proven to be very popular with our Clients, since they do not look like ordinary door knob. They resemble handles commonly seen with fireplace tools made to dissipate heat well. This handle add about 1# each to copper covers. You may only need 1 handle or knob in the middle of a small cover, yet you may feel it look better with a pair of handles.

Fire pit cover brass handle

These come with several different style rosettes, or base plates to choose.

There are several hundred different handle shapes and sizes you can opt for, or mail to us to attach them. Better handles comes with a premium life-time PVD metal coating that will not tarnish or scratch like a soft lacquered finish will. PVD handles will resist UV rays of the Sun, but keep in mind most handles are designed for indoor use, so they are not made to hold up as well exposed to the elements.

Simple cabinet handles or knobs shown below can be use for just $30 to $50 each. Here is just a few examples to choose from shown below. You can click on this image to get a better full screen look. You are still welcome to get your own set of handles and ship them to us for installation for $25 each. Some Clients have us add an extra 'D' shaped handle just to run a cable lock through it to help secure their cover from theft.

Fire pit cover brass handle

We have a few other hinged handles as well to fold down; like 'm'.

Note: these handles do not have the better PVD coating.
Brass with a lacquer coating will peal and tarnish over time. Some of the darker antique handles and knobs have iron in them; making them prone to rust eventually.

Drop-Rings:
A retaining ring is a good simple way to help hold a cover in place in a wind storm, so it won't shift out of place, but would add to the weight as well as the cost, so I leave it to your discretion if this is needed for your situation. Most Clients seem to be quite opinionated on this detail; knowing their area better than I could.

Fire pit cover brass handleSize & Shape: If you do want this feature I will need to know exactly the size and shape of the hole it needs to slide down into. It is best to use a large sheet of paper or cardboard to outline this hole, then fold it up, and mail it to me, so we can make sure it will fit just right. If it were to be even a little too large or shaped wrong it would be pointless and not fit down into the hole. If it is an irregular shaped hole you may want to indicate the direction you want the handles to point, so you will always know how to hold it as you put it back on. This way it slides down into place each time w/o difficulty.

Depth: I would also need to know how far down into your pit you would like the drop ring to extend below the outer rim of the cover. Some gas fire-pits have a shallow depth. This should not need to be more than 3" below the outer rim, but I leave this to your discretion.

Photos: It also helps me to see some photos of your fire-pit, so I can better visualize this, and ask questions if needed for the best possible outcome.

Below are some examples of the covers we've made for Clients over the last few years. Their feedback has help greatly to refine this process and designs.

Below is 33 Cover Examples w/Cost Listed
Church - (5/15)
Canton, Ohio

Copper fire-pit cover

This past client Mark Church had us ship him copper roof flashing back in the Summer of 2013 and later in the Fall we drove 2,500 miles to install copper gutters and fascia metal on his house. In 2015 he asked us to build him a fire pit cover 66" wide for his 72" wide hearth. It is formed with solid 24oz copper panels. We were going to form this with just 8 segments like we had done in the past, but decided to make this in 16 separate slices soldered together for a better curvature and an improved bell shape.

Copper fire-pit cover

We added a 1" type L copper pipe to the bottom rim formed from a single 20' long pipe. This client will add the custom handles he is having another shop make for him after receiving this cover. The final weight w/o handles is 65.4# in all, so it will take 2 people to move it on and off comfortably.

Carroll - (5/15)
Eden Prairie,
Minnesota

This was cut down to 36" wide as the client client Jay Carroll requested. We removed the steel rim ring and added a 1/2" type L copper pipe to the bottom rim. This cover is just 14.2# in all. This has handle style 'h' in the center with thick copper washers inside and over the top for support.

Owens - (3/15)
San Carlos,
California

This was a 48.25" wide inside diameter fire-pit cover made to cover their hammered copper fire pit. It has a 1" outer pipe rim. This was made for our client John Owens. It was unique in that he just wanted to use this cover as a spark arrest screen. Not to keep out the rain as with most of the covers we've made.

custom copper fire-pit coversteel fire-pit cover

We were going to form this with just 6 segments, but felt this needed more support, so we made this with 8 cross braces to hold the 4X4 stainless steel woven wire screen. The rulers shown were laid out to get the pipe placements marked as precisely as possible.

steel fire-pit cover

This client had sent us a template drawn out on a clear soft plastic folded up and mailed to us for fitting. His template seemed a little oval shaped, and we normally are not able to make a perfectly circular outer rim, but this one turned out to be very precise, so John had to do some work to get his fire pit bowl to be more uniformly round to get this cover to fit just right.

This is a 33.5" wide hemisphere made with solid 20oz copper fire-pit cover made to cover their 30" wide cut-away cover. It has a 3/4" bottom pipe rim. This is for our client Raymon & Estelle Klose. It was unique in that he wanted to use this over his steel cover you see in the first photo. We were going to form this with just 8 segments, but felt the need to make this in 16 separate slices soldered together. The final weight was 33#.

Kite - (2/15)
Wilson,
North Carolina

This is a 40" wide solid 20oz copper fire-pit cover with a 3/4" bottom pipe rim for our client Steve Kite. It was unique in that he wanted to use this over his natural gas burners as a heat deflector while in use. We were going to form a sort of 'hangman's noose' to let this dome hang from above the fire pipe.

Copper fire-pit coverCopper fire-pit cover

I then later devised this simpler center pole suspension for him to use for better balance and saved him over $100. This also doubled as a stabilizer for the dome cover when not in use. Eliminating the need for a drop ring. We provided a 30" pipe for down inside the fire pit set to stick up 9" above the hearth to secure the cove in the closed position. Then 36" pipe to go over this, and an optional 54" pipe for an upper height standing position.

As you can see this has a hammered curved shape to the cover and has 1" type L copper pipe added to the rim and a 1/2" pipe to the bottom edge of the drop ring riveted and soldered in place. There's also a separate collar to help keep the lava rock out of the way of the drop ring to slide down in the burner tray. The center dome is set above the main cover on this 1/2" pipe framework and has stainless steel screen for a vent to minimize condensation. This cover is 47.6# in all. I have not heard condensation to be a problem with these covers or burner trays, but this is what they wanted.

Hello David … the firepit cover arrived and we are thrilled with it! You and your team did an incredible job helping us to bring to life the cover in a way that serves its functional purpose, while not dominating the design of the firepit yet still looking gorgeous. I’m sure your reputation speaks for itself but if you ever need a reference both in terms of quality of work and integrity in business please send them my way.

All the best,

This is a custom 46" wide solid copper fire-pit cover w/39" wide drop ring for our client Michael Bottar. He wanted something more than just a soft dome in the middle, so I got this more dramatic 18" wide dome to add to his cover. This finished cover is 46.6#.

This is a custom 39" wide solid copper stand and fire-pit cover for our client Jim Light. It has a 2.5" drop flange below the lower rim. The cover is 36.5" wide. The frame is 20.8# and the cover w/handle is 11.4#. Jim will use the top cover set over his gas fire pit when not in use to keep it clean. We tested the strength of the frame with 450# on it (2 men). I imagine it could easily handle over twice that much weight.

Portland, Oregon
pizza oven door cover w/brass handlesMichael Klinglesmith originally wanted just a basic 33.5" wide 20" tall rectangular cover for his outdoor pizza oven to help keep it clean when not in use. I suggested he should have me make this cover more stylized in this way to accent the arched opening w/o costing extra. He made the wood frame and varnished it. I made this cover w/2 separate pieces of 32oz copper and added a pair of brass handles to his wood frame he had made per our discussion of alternative shapes. Final weight 25#.

Spoor (5/12)
New Vernon, New Jersey
Bill Spoor wanted just a basic flat 49" wide fire pit cover w/1 handles in the middle, but after consideration of the weight opted for this pair of stainless steel handles. This was made with a thinner 20oz copper. This needed 1/2" plywood to stiffen up the flat sheet of copper with a pair of 3/4" copper pipes bent in a ring for the outer rim strength and easy handling, with a 43" wide drop ring. The plywood was glued in and treated with tung oil. Final weight 42#.

I buy the copper fire pit bowls from a wholesale company called Good Directions. I need to hand hammer the flat bottom to this dome shape, add the handles, add the bottom skirting to raise it up, and add the 1/2" copper piping along the bottom for added strength. The final weight was 39#.
