Not all stainless heaters are the same. Many companies advertise stainless but most do not indicate the grade of stainless. Most patio heaters are made with type 304 stainless steel. Our heaters are made with 316 (marine) grade stainless steel, which produces the best, most dependable outdoor heaters.
Through our continuous research and extensive experience, we know 304 stainless steel is insufficient for coastal areas. Areas where outdoor heaters are subjected to the corrosive effects of salt water, air pollution and chlorine.
We are proud to announce the only outdoor heater manufactured with a 316 (marine) grade stainless steel option for extreme conditions. Using 316 stainless provides superior corrosion resistance and 316 is standard marine grade.
Marine grade 316 stainless is optional and used for the main construction of our heaters including the reflector and burner component compartment.
If your application is regarded as extreme, the additional charge is minimum to ensure your heater withstands the forces of its environment.
