Tiki torches add drama to your outdoor space, creating a tropical island atmosphere. Adding a row of tiki torches on a pathway will give ample light while offering a bit of class and exotic romance to your home. Gas tiki torches are a must if you’re planning a luau, Hawaiian barbecue, or tropical island theme party.

Propane or natural gas fueled tiki torches last the longest. Smaller tiki torches usually burn citronella or paraffin oil. These smaller tiki torches are great for placing around patios, pools, decks, patio bars, or as a center piece.

Anytime you are dealing with open flame, safety is essential. Be sure that you place your tiki torches in a safe ares. Avoid placing Tiki Torches near trees, awinigs or anything flammable. During parties, be sure you position the Tiki Torches outside pathways so your guests don't trip over them. Make sure they are solidly in place so they will not tip over and start a fire.

Tiki torches are wonderful for providing the natural ambience of a party in the tropics. They are small, controllable, easy to set up, and burn for several hours. Tiki torches extinguish easily and are quite safe when set up properly.

Tiki torches come on poles that are about five feet long and contain a small reservoir on top that holds a bottle or can of fuel. The fuel bottle is fitted with a metal top that has an opening in the middle to allow the thick wick to be immersed in to the fuel.

Tiki torches also come with small safety caps that will extinguish the flame by placing the cap over the torch. When the tiki torch is not in use, the wicks can be pulled out.

Tiki torches are available in a wide variety of styles. While bamboo or cane tiki torches ar ethe most poular, and the least expensive, higher quality designs are also available. Tiki torches used near the ocean should be made of copper or brass in order to hold up in the salty atmosphere.

Top five tiki torch safety tips.

  • Tiki torches are to be used in outdoor areas only. Do not light your tiki torch inside under any circumstances!
  • Be careful where you place your tiki torches around the deck. Do not place a tiki torch under a tree canopy, or under any kind of deck roofing or cover. Pay particular attention if you have a palapa, a tiki hut or any kind of structure made with grass thatching material, as this can be flammable.
  • If you’re using your tiki torches for a party, don’t place them in heavy traffic areas, or anywhere where anyone is likely to trip on the torch or the stand.
  • Your tiki torches will need a secure, stable base which cannot tip over, even when firmly pushed. A solid cement or heavy wrought iron base is best. If you plan to use your tiki torches as a permanent outdoor lighting fixture, you could mount them to the deck railing, or set them in a concrete foundation in the garden, beside the driveway, by the pool or around the patio.
  • Choose tiki torches which are made from non-flammable materials. Beware of cheap, inferior quality products which may be dangerous. Although bamboo torches are nice because they look very authentic, stainless steel torches are generally safest.

How a Gas Lantern Works
From: How Stuff Works.com

Have you ever seen a heated horseshoe? Maybe at a blacksmith shop or on TV? If so, you know that if you get a horseshoe hot enough, it starts to glow. If you get its temperature up to 1,500 degrees F (800 degrees C) it will glow with a bright red color -- you see this temperature all the time in the coils of an electric stove, oven or toaster. In these appliances, electricity heats a coil or wire hot enough to make it glow. If you get the temperature up to about 4,500 degrees F (2,500 degrees C), you get a very bright yellow (nearly white) color. That's the temperature of a normal light bulb filament.

When something produces light because of heat, it is said to be incandescent. Anything that you heat up will glow, but different materials are better or worse at producing light as they are heated. Steel is a pretty good producer of light. Glass is a very poor producer. If you heat glass it will glow, but it gives off much less light than the same volume of steel. In the 1800s, theaters used lamps that heated a block of calcium oxide (lime) with a torch. This, by the way, is where the term limelight comes from. They used lime because it has a high melting temperature, so you can heat it to a white glow without the block melting (iron melts at 2,800 degrees F, while lime melts at around 4,600 degrees F). Lime also is a good producer of light.

Gas lanterns are incandescent lights. They burn a fuel like propane, white gas or kerosene to produce heat, and the heat causes the mantles to produce light. The mantles are a ceramic mesh that encase the flame produced by the lantern.

Mantles start out as silk fabric sacks impregnated with different oxides. The standard for decades has been the Welsbach mantle, which uses a mixture of thorium oxide, cerium oxide and magnesium oxide.

When the mantle is installed, you ignite the silk, which burns away and leaves behind a brittle ceramic shell as shown in the picture. This shell is extremely efficient at producing light because of the chemicals it contains and the large surface area of the mesh. The links on the next page contain a reference to the patent for the latest-technology mantle if you'd like to learn more.

So you can see that gas lanterns are very simple. Just about any heated material will produce light. The lantern burns fuel to produce heat. Gas lanterns happen to use mantles (instead of limestone blocks, for instance) because the mantles are very efficient at producing light from the heat they receive.
