The Safety Aspect: 

When discussing a fire pit installation on your deck or patio, the presence is not the only thing you need to pay attention to. You should check the safety standards and ordinances set for using open flames in an open area to find out what will work for you on a legal level where you are not breaking any laws or putting anyone’s or anything’s safety at risk. Your local municipality will most likely have ordinances in place that will dictate the rules of using open flames and specifics about fire pits on decks. There are many regions, city, or county codes that do not permit the use of open flames on wooden patios and decks and within 20 feet or so of your home. If you belong to these cities or counties, it is best to read up on the law before spending any money. 

The biggest concern for wood burning fire pit on deck is that flames can be easily directed toward the wooden area if sparks and embers start flying towards it and ignite it. This is the worst-case scenario, but everything needs to be paid attention to. Suppose you have leaves and other parts of plants on your deck which is so common and natural. Even if the wood of your deck does not catch fire from a spark or ember, these leaves and other things like twigs can easily catch fire and give rise to a bigger blaze that may not be avoidable. These sparks are unpredictable, and undetected sparks can completely ruin your night and your property. Even after you have doused the fire pit, there are chances of a fire igniting. Also, fire pits are closer to the ground, and fire pits radiate enough heat to harm the surface of the deck beneath.

If you have received an all-clear from your city or county laws to go ahead and set up a fire pit, it is best for you to choose a gas fire pit and the best gas for pits for deck is undoubtedly propane! Make sure it is fitted properly because properly fitted gas fire pits do not bear the risk of any sparks flying around and igniting anything. The best way to ensure that you have the right fire pit is to check if gas fire pits are specifically designed for deck use. You can find this information in the instruction manual for gas fire pit tables or get in touch with the manufacturer. Your manufacturer can also help you ensure that your patio or deck is suitable and strong enough for the fire pit table.
