They come in several finishes with Stainless Steel being a bit pricier, but more durable for our application. They look great and are a wonderful addition to our facility. Im still being congratulated on how great they look! The other finished are black or bronze.
When you receive them, youll have to do a bit of assembly. You only need a hammer and a lock of wood to assemble them. There are two fluted posts, one base post, one ground post, the torch holder, and torch body with attached snuffer cap. These torches are held in place by stakesusing the hammer and block of wood, you pound the ground post about 6 into the ground. Thats the hardest partthe rest is just adding the base post and then as many fluted posts as you desire (from 2 to 6consider your audience and choose wisely. If need be, you can always douse it and put in or take out sections to reposition it). The more posts, the higher the torch. When youve reached the desired height, add the wire torch holder and then fill the torch body with fuel (up to ½ below the top of the torch). Add the wick and let it soak up fuel (plan ahead, youll need to give it 2-3 hours of soaking). Put the body into the wire holder and youre done! When it is time to light it, remove the snuffer cap and lightthats it!
The bowl is huge! It measures 9-1/2 x 9-1/2 x 7 and hold one gallon of fuelenough for the entire night with no refilling. Weve had them last about 20 hours without refillingthe length depends on the windif it works hard to stay lit it uses more fuel. The bowl does get really hotdont try to remove it until its cooled.
For maximum effect, youll need more than one. We have about 30 in our commercial applicationmost to light the pathway, but a few that are at different heights to illuminate a water feature. Theyre fabulous and look great. With the stainless steel exterior, we expect them to last for years!
