2. Gas Logs
Arizona Weathered Oak
The Arizona Weathered Oak is Grand Canyon Gas Logs premier set of gas logs. The Arizona Weathered Oak logs are cast from real logs found in nature and then hand painted to bring the natural beauty of the log to life. All of our products tell a story, and the story behind the creation of this set is no different. Forty years ago, a young boy was hiking through the Red Vermilion Cliffs on the Arizona-Utah border, when he and his family came across a scrub oak that had been struck down by Mother Nature. The sheer awe and beauty of this lighting struck oak would leave a lifelong impression on the young boys mind. In October of 2011 the scrub oak was rediscovered laying in the same spot that it had been 40 years earlier and was more beautiful than ever. The boy, now a man with a family of his own, backpacked the logs of the fallen oak out of the canyon to be enjoyed in your home today.
Arizona Weathered Oak Charred
The Arizona Weathered Oak Charred collection brings new style and beauty to the Native Series. Like all other collections created by Grand Canyon Gas Logs craftsmen, these logs are cast from real pieces of wood and then hand painted to perfection. However, this collection has an extra step added into the process. After the front logs are found, our craftsmen notch the center of the log and then set the log on fire. The fire burns through the log creating the most desired charred front. Once the logs are cooled, our craftsmen create the mold capturing the charred ends. This process would not be complete without our artist who brings life back into the cast logs, painting them to create a look as if they were burned in your own fireplace. This process is repeated for all 5 sizes, making each front log unique to the set that it resides in.
Grand Canyon Gas Logs Introduces its Western Driftwood log set. Aptly named, this beautiful set of timber was conceived with one of the world’s seven natural wonders in mind – The Grand Canyon. This most recent addition to the company’s expansive line of hand-crafted gas logs resembles the natural terrain of the Grand Canyon along the sun baked banks of the Colorado River. Backpacked out, log-by-log, this hunting expedition took our seasoned team of log hunters on a journey searching the river banks, mile by mile. The Western Driftwood log set is the most realistic by far, manufactured by Grand Canyon Gas Logs craftsmen. Scorching summers and cool wet winters served as inspiration behind such detail. It features a washed-out, sun-bleached exterior against rich gray tones and bright white elements creating the backdrop for deep, crackling, splitting in-the-woods bark. Flash floods in the Canyon and mud-filled winters have stained the heart wood, rendering subterranean earthy tones. This rich combination of colors and texture give the Western Driftwood log set detail that is second-to-none. We recommend the Western Driftwood log set as perfect option for any transitional design. Pair the Log Set with a linear burner on a bed of glass for a modern yet classic look. Like all logs manufactured by Grand Canyon Gas Logs our logs are individually cast and then hand painted to perfection by our artists creating the most realistic looking logs on the market. Grand Canyon Gas Logs are found in America and made in America.
Blue Pine Split
Blue Pine Split logs were found in the bark beetle ravaged forest in Northern Arizona. The infestation of beetles left behind acres upon acres of down trees, however it created unbelievable wood character only captured in the Blue Pine Split collection. The deep grain pattern and gray highlights make this split look like the wood was split right in half in you fireplace. Don’t like the split, reverse the log to showcase the fantastic Alligator bark.
The Arizona Juniper log set is part of the Grand Canyon Gas Logs three native collections. The Arizona Juniper logs are cast from real logs found in nature and then hand painted to bring to life the natural beauty of the log. The logs in the Arizona Juniper collection were discovered in the back woods of Arizona’s pine enriched forest of Northern Arizona. While hiking through the forest our log hunters found fallen juniper trees with distinctive characteristics like no other junipers in the area. Realizing that they had found something special our log hunters gathered up as many logs as they could to begin building the log sets. Each log was handpicked for the collection that it resides in and resembles the log that it was cast from as it was laying on the forest floor.
The Quaking Aspen is part of Grand Canyon Gas Logs three native collections. The Quaking Aspen logs are cast from real logs found in nature and then hand painted to bring to life the natural beauty. Like the Arizona Juniper collection the logs for the Quaking Aspen were discovered in the backwoods of the Northern Arizona Forest. The name Quaking Aspen comes from the appearance of the Aspen tree when the wind is blowing. The leaves of the tree are attached to the branches with a long petiole; this allows even the faintest of breezes to cause the leaves to flutter. The fluttering effect gives the appearance that the Aspen is “Quaking” or “Trembling” hence the name Quaking Aspen. The detail in the casting and painting by our craftsman are second none.
3. Valves & Controls
Choosing the right controls for your log set can be daunting task.
We are here to simplify the process for you.
1. Manual Safety Pilot System - Use this only if you are comfortable with hands on methods. You turn the control knob to the pilot position, push the knob in, light the pilot with a match, then hold the knob down for 30 seconds or so until the pilot stays lit by itself. Once the pilot light will stay lit on its own, you can then move the knob to the "On" position. For manually operated gas logs this will turn the logs on. This is very hands on method and since you have to use your hands, the valve is positioned closer to the front of the fireplace, with the knob on the very end for you to use. Not visually pleasing to the eye. Also, you are NOT able to add any remote controls or wall switches in the future.
2. Millivolt Kit - This is the one we recommend the most, because it's very durable and you can connect most remote controls to it. This valve is also a Standing pilot system, where you have to light the pilot, but you can control the fireplace with a wall switch or a remote control. It makes daily usage much easier. If you purchase the GCRK Remote, the small black box will work just like the knob in the above example, except you can mount the box as a wall switch next to the fireplace or camouflage it in the front of the fireplace. It works on 4 AA batteries. The box has On/Pilot/Off slider, just like the knob. It also has a learn button to sync the hand held transmitter.
3. Modulating Millivolt Kit - If you like to have total control of your flame, this one is for you. Very similar to above, except the valve has the ability to control the flame height. Using the included transmitter (remote control), you can make the flame go lower or higher. It's called variable flame valve, but it's still standing pilot that needs to be lit manually.
4. Battery Electronic Ignition System - Our second most recommended valve. If you don't feel comfortable having the pilot light always on, or constantly relighting it, this system is for you. It has a extra ignition module part, which lights the pilot with a spark. Once the pilot is lit, the whole fireplace ignites. Everything is done with one press of a button. When you are done using the fireplace, simply press OFF and everything will turn off. This system has two sets of batteries. 4 AA batteries in the receiver (small black box, same as Millivolt Kit) as well as 4 DD batteries in the ignition box. Both need to be changed regularly.
