About Flame Patio Heater
As the evening cools, or on a day that?s not quite as hot as you had hoped, having the gentle warmth of a flame patio heater adds to the time you can spend out-of-doors. It might be that one corner of your garden or patio is shaded before the others, and that spot too would be a terrific place to locate a heater.
Apart from adding heat, the flame itself, flickering as evening draws in, brings an extra, sometimes slightly mysterious, quality to the ambient light it produces. Kids love this, and adults enjoy the relaxed calmness it seems to bring once the youngsters have gone to bed.
Many flame patio heaters also add to the look of the garden, your decking or patio areas. Their slimline height, often reaching to around 6-7 feet, yet on a solid base, casts a gentle shadow. As a gathering point for an evening barbecue, they simply can?t be bettered. These flame-effect gas heaters usually feature a top deflector, which not only protects the flame from the rain but can direct more warmth to important areas. Some burners are also encased in a glass tube, have a safety pilot light, and a heat output of 9.3w is fairly standard.
Stainless steel, and perhaps aluminium, are the usual materials for a sturdy base ? and many have an anti-tilt mechanism for added safety. Some flame patio heaters have wheels for easy movement. You may also find a selection of spare parts such as replacement deflectors, or accessories such as winter covers.
As well as being terrific in your garden, these flame patio heaters are a useful addition to any evening outdoor commercial event, such as a wedding, and other party or function.
