Again, the dual inverted or the upright burner must remain lit at all times because the mantel is too delicate to withstand being re-lit. On natural gas they consume 2500 btu's per hour (2000 btu on LP gas). The open flame model includes a push button electronic ignition that's mounted on the pole. The open flame burner is a more dynamic flame vs the glow produced by the mantle lamp burner.
The lamp and post are made of rugged aluminum and painted black. WARRANTY is 30 days on paint and glass, 1 year warranty on the lamp and gas components.
INSTALLATION OPTIONS - CHOOSE POST STYLE
CHOOSE FROM in-ground mounting or patio mount (which includes a round base). The in-ground post is 3" diameter x 7'9" tall while the patio mount is 3" x 6'5" including the round base. If you order the open flame light then it will come with an electronic ignition mounted on the post as shown right, while lamps with mantles are lit manually and won't have the ignition box.
