The NEWPORT outdoor gas light honors an early adapter of gas lights in Newport, RI in 1803. An outdoor gas lamp welcomes you safely at home by your porch or driveway. Also ideal for outdoor entertaining on your deck or patio. Features 2 lighting options and 2 mounting styles to provide an inviting glow to your home's exterior entry and gathering spaces. Exterior gas lights are an ideal means of providing security for any home or business, too, as well as for outdoor areas like parks, golf clubs and other outdoor entertainment venue. And of course, a gas light works when the power is off.

The most common style gas lamp you may be familiar with uses a mantle, starting life as a fabric mesh bag that's impregnated with metal nitrates; these metal oxides produce a warm but bright glow on the visible light spectrum while emitting little radiation (or heat). The mantle is lit when installed and the gas light is intended to burn continuously because the mantle is too fragile to touch after its initial firing. Scroll down to watch a video showing the mantles being lit.


The  gas lamp is also available with a dual inverted style or an open flame design, as shown left. 

GAS USAGE
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.



The horizontal ladder rail shown left is a $25 option
