SLOT ME IN (“SMI”) AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™

June 2017

Now the Australian continent has a tremendous amount if not the most number of extinct volcanoes (technically defined as ones that have not erupted in over 10,000 years) and no active ones. Well it did until this month when the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ erupted onto the scene with our official launch of this exciting new product. It draws its origins from the ancient Mayan and Inca chimineas of South America and later from Spain in its principle function used for heating and cooking, only with a modern twist of design, new materials used and manufacturing process involved.

How appropriate with winter now officially here in Oz that we offer this new and exciting “Aussie Chiminea” 100% Aussie made from 100% Aussie materials and 100% Aussie owned. Suitable to be used on patio’s including timber decking as it has 4 inbuilt legs that keep it above the ground surface (no need for any separate stand to rest it in which can be a hazard if knocked and possibly topple over causing injury or damage to people or property). With a low centre of gravity and using the conventional chiminea sand bed as a base for the fire to be burnt on the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ remains firmly anchored and stable directing heat upwards and outwards keeping you warm this winter and all year round, extending your outdoor entertaining hours, giving you, friends and family a great focal point to all gather around.

Precision laser cut from Australian 5mm thick BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel it’s built to take the harsh elements of the great Aussie outdoors and capable of burning a large fire in it to sit around and enjoy the warmth by and even cook on. It is ideally suitable for home use, bistros, pubs, clubs, wineries, bars, cafes, mancaves and anywhere a contained fire can be used outdoors to add warmth, charm, comfort, ambience and character.

Unlike cheap imported clay and cast iron chimineas which can crack, chip and break before your very eyes and are often made from dubious materials with little or no quality control or the cheap imported thin steel types that end up burning out and can’t hold a decent fire the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ is made from Australia’s finest steel. It will continue to be enjoyed year after year giving you real value for money.

Whether you choose to use it directly on your patio or deck and don’t require moving it or rather like the convenience of being able to move it around the choice is yours. Let’s face it with a fire bed of washed sand (it requires approx 15kg) and structure combined, it weighs a total of around 75.5kg, that’s not something you want to move on a regular basis. However if you do wish to move it around that’s where the great accessory of the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ comes in so handy. Made from Australian 3mm thick BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ (in a smooth or tread plate pattern) allows you to position the SMI AUSSIE VOCANO CHIMINEA™ on top and move it easily by the aid of the 4 (100kg each rated) heavy duty concealed wheels underneath and with a non-scratching heavy duty polyurethane compound tread and ball bearing race construction. There is plenty of room to stack your fire wood on the trolley as well. Furthermore there is also the optional SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA FLUE EXTENSION™ which adds another 700mm in height (150mm internal diameter and 5mm thick also made from Aussie BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel) to the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ (which measures 1180mm high on its own by the way). Add the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ at 120mm high (950mm x 950mm in surface area with concealed wheels x 4) with the flue extension and you have an impressive 2000mm of height, clearly directing any smoke etc. away from eye height. There is even an optional slip on SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA “RAINE” LID™ (with handle) for when not in use which helps keep the sand bed/fire base dry and ready for its next use if stored in the open.

Available now as a “special order” from authorized SLOT ME IN stockist’s the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ and its accessories will give you year after year of enjoyment. As we say here at SLOT ME IN…..”we make fire fun”.

All specifications are the same except we have introduced a tread plate (commonly referred to as “checker plate”) model using 3mm thick 100% Aussie, genuine BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ tread plate steel. This will match THE WOMBAT FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ which is made from 5mm thick 100% Aussie, genuine BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel, in a tread plate pattern as is the water fill-able aluminium under tray it comes with, keeping the theme of an all “checker plate” look or give a contrasting feature to THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™.

For all its uses and specifications of this new product go to last month’s March 2017 News & Specials here on the website for a more in depth read.  The “smooth” model was released last month (March 2017) and features there with an in depth description.

SMI Aussie Fire Pit / Chiminea Deck Trolley™ (Smooth)

March 2017

Introducing the all new SMI AUSSIE FIRE PIT / CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ (smooth model). This great new product adds a whole new dimension to enjoying your fire pit safely at home on a deck or patio. If your familiar with THE WEDGE or THE WOMBAT FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERS™ you will already know about our invention of the “original” and total “flat pack” fire pits, that come with their own safety water fill-able under tray so you can burn them on the ground without doing any damage to your lawn or the bush environment for that matter, leaving no ugly black scar like conventional fires on the ground do, as do most fire pits also.

Now off course both THE WEDGE & WOMBAT FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERS™ are just as much at home in the backyard. They are not just for the bush and camping. In fact a large percentage of sales are specifically for home use. Not everyone can get out camping every week nor do they all have a huge yard or lawn to enjoy them on so we set about to solve that dilemma. With ever decreasing house block sizes and increasing house sizes the Aussie back yard lawn is getting smaller and smaller. Also apartments and units often don’t even have a lawn. Sometimes decks and patios are the only outdoor spaces to enjoy a fire on. This is where the SMI AUSSIE FIRE PIT / CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ comes to the rescue. It’s a large trolley (950mm x 950mm square) and sits 120mm above the surface such as a deck or paving on 4 heavy duty swivel castors. Each castor is rated at 100kg and has a ball bearing race construction, they are also 100% Aussie made from 100% Aussie materials as well. The castors have a very safe heavy duty polyurethane tread compound which eliminates scratching or damaging timber decking or paving with an all up safe load including the trolley of 400kg (provided the load is stable, not off balance and the surface it sits on is level and capable of supporting a concentrated load in the foot print of the trolley).

There is ample room for THE WEDGE OR WOMBAT FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKERS™ to sit easily on top including their respective water fill-able under trays, which by the way should still be used and filled with water. When not in use you can simply move the whole set up out of the way or position it on your deck or patio without raising a sweat or involving heavy lifting to where you would like to enjoy your fire.

The edges of the trolley are folded downwards to conceal the wheels giving the trolley the appearance of floating above the deck or patio. There is also ample storage space on the trolley to stack fire wood and keep your fire tools handy also. Each trolley is made from 3mm thick 100% Aussie, genuine BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel by us here at SLOT ME IN and weighs 28.3 kg.

Remember no fire should be left unattended at any time. An adult should be present and in supervision at all times. Any fire restrictions should be adhered to as well. All open fires on the trolley should only be used outdoors and not in enclosed spaces paying particular attention to positioning next to walls and in undercover areas with low roof structures, as should the amount of fuel being burnt at any one time. Sufficient clearance in a full 360 degrees circle around an open fire on the trolley of any combustible materials should also be taken into consideration just like at a camp site with an open fire.

The new SMI AUSSIE FIRE PIT / CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ brings a whole new dimension to enjoying a fire at home and is also suitable for use in pubs, clubs, wineries, bars, bistros, cafes, restaurants in fact where ever a safe trolley is required to support a fire pit, chiminea or even an outdoor gas upright heater or the like on decking or paving when needed to be moved about for positioning or storage.

They are available now from authorized distributors of SLOT ME IN™ products if stocked or can be ordered in as a special order for $449.00 plus shipping. ( Note: shipping will vary from stockiest to stockiest depending on the distance from our base here in Melbourne, VIC ).

Stay tuned next month when we release another great new SLOT ME IN™ product here on our website.
Happy camping, cooking, travels and enjoy your fire responsibly.
