gas. The flames generated are directed against a perforated metal screen and heat
is thrown in a circular pattern around the top of the heater -

It’s important to keep your heater in tip top condition so you should consider buying a patio heater cover to ensure it is protected from the elements and there’s no risk of rusting from damp or electrical parts becoming damaged. We have a range of patio heater covers in all shapes and sizes.
A patio heater produces a large amount of heat so safety is an important factor to consider to avoid the risk of an accident or fire taking place. There are obvious dangers in using a gas heater when young children are in your garden area.
Combustible materials must be kept well away from a gas or electric heater. You should also ensure a heater is not positioned near to foliage or hanging branches or leaves.
We should never attempt to move a gas heater while it is in operation. The heater should be turned off and left for a while to cool down. It's also important to ensure your patio heater is positioned on a completely flat and stable surface, and it should be kept out of strong winds to avoid the risk of the flame blowing out or the unit being tipped over.
Take extra care when children are anywhere near a heater -
These heater should only be used outdoors -
Always check the instructions which come with your heater to ensure it conforms to safety standards. Many of the better gas garden heaters are equipped with an electric starter which eliminates the need for a pilot light, and they will also often have an automatic shut off feature should the device accidentally topple over.
It's also important to get your heater serviced and maintained regularly by a reputable and qualified company. These heaters will normally come with instructions on how to arrange a service.
If your heater is not operating correctly or you suspect it may have a gas leak, you should get it serviced or repaired as a matter of urgency. It’s much wiser to be safe than sorry where a potentially dangerous device is concerned.
However, if you look after your heater carefully it should serve you well for many years and provide many evenings of comforting heat when dining, entertaining or just relaxing outdoors.
Many pubs, bars and restaurants have opted for large freestanding heaters which spread their heat for a radius of several yards, while others feature quaint table top patio heaters which keep those sitting at an individual dining table warm during their meal and when enjoying a few beverages afterwards.
Electric patio heaters are the device of choice at some eating and drinking establishments
but they are a bit restrictive as they need to be wall mounted so they can be connected
to a power supply or they need have an electric cable or an extension lead running
out to their location. This is where a gas device has more appeal -
The appeal of a gas outdoor heater for anyone living in the UK is obvious as we don’t
have long hot summers enjoyed by many countries around the world -
These superb heaters allows you to make the occasion last a bit longer into the chilly evening hours and even allows you to wine and dine outdoors on your home patio, veranda or at a pub or restaurant in spring or autumn when this would not normally be an option due to the temperatures outside. With an outdoor heater you can sit out all year round, even on milder winter days.
