Solus designs, manufactures and ships all our products from our workshop in Vancouver, Canada where the business was originally founded. As we continue to ship our products to the UK, we can’t deny that the impact of both the pandemic and Brexit has had an effect on our lead times combined with a growing demand for outdoor living products in the UK.

Shipping Fire Pits To Moscow with Love…

… and to LA, Montreal, Zurich, Sydney and many points in between!

Solus fire pits of all shapes, sizes and colors are being made, packed, crated and shipped to the far corners of the world. Finding the perfect gas concrete fire pit or fire table- in a standard production unit – is worth the cost of shipping for many designers and home owners all over the world over. Solus is proud of the care that we take in preparing a product for shipment.

In fact, as much care is taken in packing and crating our fire feature products as is taken in their creation. After curing and finishing, each fire pit is carefully wrapped and placed in a purpose built wooden crate.

A liquid foam is placed in between the wood form of the crate and the wrapping that protects the product.

This foam “hard forms” around the fire pit as it dries, taking in its unique shape as well as the way it is sitting in the crate. This hard form now helps to secure the product in place and helps to reduce movement and vibration of the product within the crate, while it is being moved and handled in the shipping process.

Whether shipping down an interstate corridor, over a continent by rail, or across oceans by ship, Solus products get to their end destination unscathed and as beautiful as the moment they were packed and crated.
