Glass bead gas fireplace treatments

Has anyone retrofitted a metal fireplace box with the glass beads and gas flames? One place told me that the box had to be specifically designed for the glass beads, but I have found them all over the internet. I just don't want to spend a couple hundred dollars to retrofit the fireplace, then burn the house down.

My guess is you are talking about a heat-a-lator metal box which is designed to be used as a wood burning fire place. I wouldn't think there would be a problem using it with glass bead gas flame unless it requires a larger vent size. The gas is not going to be as hot as a roaring wood fire.
