SAFETY INFORMATION

WARNING: This product con­tains and/or generates chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer or birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
WARNING: Fire, burn, inhala­tion, and explosion hazard. Keep solid combustibles, such as building materials, wood, vinyl siding, paper or cardboard, a safe distance away from the heater as recommended by the instruc­tions. Never use the heater in spaces which do or may contain volatile or airborne combustibles, or products such as gasoline, sol­vents, paint thinner, dust particles or unknown chemicals.
WARNING: Improper instal­lation, adjustment, alteration, service or maintenance can cause injury, property damage, or death. Read the installation, operating, and maintenance instructions thoroughly before installing or servicing this equipment.
WARNING: For use only out­doors in a well ventilated space. Do not use heater indoors or in a building or garage or any unven­tilated or enclosed areas.
The heater is designed for use as an infrared patio heater in accordance with the applicable require ments CSA 5.90 U.S Infrared Patio Heaters, CAN 1-2.23 Portable Infra Red Heaters for
Canada.
Other standards govern the use of fuel gases and heat­ing products for specific uses. Your local authority can advise you about these. The primary purpose of outdoor patio heaters is to provide heating of resi dential and nonresidential spaces. Properly used, the heater provides safe economical heating.
We cannot foresee every use which may be made of our heaters. CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL
FIRE SAFETY AUTHORITY IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT HEATER USE.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Some people are
more affected by carbon monoxide than others. Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning re­semble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, and/or nausea. If you have these signs, the heater may not be working properly. Get fresh air at once! Have heater serviced.
Propane/LP Gas: Propane/LP gas is odorless. An
odor-making agent is added to propane/LP gas. The odor helps you detect a propane/LP gas leak. However, the odor added to propane/LP gas may fade. Propane/LP gas may be present even though no odor exists.
Make certain you read and understand all warn ings. Keep this manual for reference. It is your guide to safe and proper operation of this heater.
1. Install and use heater with care. Follow all local ordinances and codes. In the absence of local ordinances and codes, refer to the Stan-
dard for Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, ANSI/NFPA 58, CAN/-B149 Installation CODE. This instructs on the safe
storage and handling of propane/LP gases.
2.
Use only propane/LP gas set up for vapor withdrawal in a 20 lb. cylinder. Cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with specifications for propane/LP cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The cylinder must be provided with a shutoff valve terminating in a propane/LP supply cylinder valve outlet. The valve must have external threads and marked “Use with Type 1” safety relief device having a direct commu
-
nication with the vapor space of the cylinder. The cylinder used must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.
