Important things to remember for heaters and fires

Outdoor gas heaters require adequate ventilation and should not be used indoors. Refer to product warning labels and manufacturer’s instructions for more information.

Firepits must be placed at least 3.0m away from your house or any structure. Check for no overhanging branches, fences or structures as well. Lastly, you will need to check with your local council to see if a fire is permitted on that particular day.

Our top tips for keeping safe include:

  • Don’t light a fire under a tree
  • Don’t over fill your fire pit
  • Keep the gas heater far away from awnings, shade sails, blinds etc.
  • Check the expiry on your gas cylinder before using
  • Always read the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance
  • Check the direction of the wind before lighting a fire
