No you cannot use this cover on a fire pit still burning. It is designed for a cool fire pit to keep out debris not to put out a fire.
hi DD, it is designed to go with our Necessories Grand 48 in Fire pit with grate. It has a 31 inch interior diameter.
as long as the interior diameter of the opening is smaller than 34 inches you should be ok.
No, although there's a different part number #IAC-30 from same brand if you want one without the slot. It is also larger at 37" diameter
hi TB there is a 37 in. Fire Pit Cover without a slot. Internet #300618460.
Hi Lulu the fire pit cover is about 25 lbs.
