G45 and GX45 Triple T Burners


G45 Burner shown with optional SPK-26 Safety Pilot

If you are looking for the best Match-Light gas log burner system and are not interested in a safety pilot or remote control, then the G45 burner is the best choice for you. Also, if you have a larger fireplace that can accommodate logs that are wider than 30", then the G45X is your best choice since it comes in sizes up to 60" wide.

What's the difference between the G45 and the GX45 burners?

The only difference between the G45 and GX45 burner is the grate. The G45 has a standard gas log grate while the GX45 has a heavy duty grate like those used to burn real wood. The GX45 heavy duty grate is required for some of the larger more massive logs like the Charred Royal English Oak and is always used for log sets over 30".

The G45 burner is simply a G4 burner with a built in front flame burner. The wedge shaped rectangular pan has a main burner tube going down the middle and a smaller front flame burner that "Ts" off from the main burner. The additional front flame burner allows you to position the burner directly beneath the logs while giving you a nice bed of glowing embers with flames lapping up around the front log and up between the middle logs.

Approval

For sizes 30" and smaller, you can purchase the G45 burner system in a RADCO approved (match-light) setup. If you purchase a RADCO approved set and add a safety pilot, the safety pilot will be shipped separately and you will have to install it yourself. If you pay a bit more for an ANSI approved G45 burner system, the factory will install the approved safety pilot of your choice and apply the ANSI certification at the factory. If this is the case, you might want to compare the G45 to the G46 burner because it is more likely that the G46 burner will be a better choice. The G45 burner has no approval rating in sizes that are 36" and larger.

Downside: Since the safety pilots and remote control systems are attached to the side or end of the G45 burner, they will require an additional 8 to 10 inches of clearance to "Each Side" of your log set, which can dramatically reduce the size logs that you can use...which is why we recommend the G46 burner if you are using a remote control. The SPK-26 manual safety pilot only adds an additional 3" to each side of the burner, so the a G45 burner with an SPK-26 safety pilot is still an excellent choice.

Control Options

You can choose from a basic SPK manual safety pilot, APK-11 Remote control, APK-15 or APK-17 Variable Flame Remote or the EPK-02 Electronic Ignition system. However, since the safety pilots and remote control systems are attached to the side or end of the G45 burner, they will require an additional 8 to 10 inches of clearance to "Each Side" of your log set, which can dramatically reduce the size logs that you can use...which is why we recommend the G46 burner if you are using a remote control. The SPK-26 manual safety pilot only adds an additional 3" to each side of the burner, so the a G45 burner with an SPK-26 safety pilot is still an excellent choice.
