Product title
Outdoor heater – Tristar Patio Heater
Product description
This product poses a serious risk of burns and fire because: - the burner can not be ignited safely with a match, because the ignition opening is too remote from the pilot flame to ignite the appliance with a match; - repeated start-up problems can cause too large amounts of gas pouring out. Subsequently uncontrolled ignition can cause a burst of flame. Also is stated that ignition can take place at maximum capacity of the appliance (measured 10,7kW (Hs)); - when ignition occurs with a capacity of more than 5 kW (Hs) a burst of flame can come into being or the heat development can be so high that burning of clothing and/or skin can happen. This product does not comply with the Gas Appliances Directive and the relevant European standard EN 14543.
