When the evenings become cooler, gas-operated heaters are frequently used on balconies and patios, or in outdoor areas in the hospitality industry. The names of the heaters are different – outdoor heaters, radiant heaters, patio heaters – but one thing they all have in common is that operators require a gas cylinder, pressure reducer, excess flow device for the hose and a gas anti-tilt device. In addition, there are requirements for the safe handling of the heaters – for private individuals as well as for use in restaurants, pubs or bars.
