Oriflamme FAQ’s

Q. Can the Oriflamme gas fire table be left outside year round?

A. Yes, the manufacturer recommends an all-weather protective cover and to seal your fire table seasonally. For granite tables they recommend a granite sealer; for the concrete tables they recommend a concrete sealer; and for the hammered copper they recommend carnauba wax.

Q.  What size tanks do the Oriflamme gas fire tables use?

A. The Oriflamme gas fire tables use standard 20# barbeque grill size tanks. For all models with table tops 40″ and larger they have a dual storage tank capacity.

Q. Do I need to close the valves after each use?

A. No, simply use the control knob to turn the flame completely off. We only recommend turning off your control valves when you are storing your table during the off-season or when you will be leaving your home on vacation/work trip for an extended period.

Q.  Does the Oriflamme gas fire table use a push button ignite system?

A. No, the Oriflamme tables use a match lit system so you will need a long handled lighter to ignite your table. Push button igniters can short out and are difficult and costly to replace.

Q. I live in a fire restricted area where you cannot burn open fires. Is it safe to use my fire table?

A. Please check your local jurisdiction for coding requirements. The Oriflamme fire tables have a controlled-flame and generally meet the guidelines for most fire safety requirements. The table is clean burning and it does not produce soot or embers.

Q. Is the flame adjustable?

A. Yes, the flame is adjustable via control knob. The flame can be low for ambience or adjusted to high if you want heat output.

Q. How many BTU’s do Oriflamme fire tables produce?

A. Up to 75,000 BTU’s on propane tanks. And up to 90,000 BTU’s on natural gas.

Q. Can we roast marshmallows on an Oriflamme fire table?

A. Absolutely! If you get drippings in your fireglass, once the fire glass has cooled off, pour it into a plastic colander (to prevent scratching the metal colander) and rinse it off. Once the fireglass dries you can place it back in the burner and resume normal use.

Q. Can I choose my own fireglass colors when I order a new table?

A. Yes, please ask your sales representative or put your combination of up to 12 lbs in the notes section of your online order. There is no additional cost involved if you choose a different glass color combination when you place your initial order.

Q. I love the Oriflamme fire tables but I have a small space. Do you have another recommendation?

A. Yes, the Oriflamme tables also have a mini size gas fire table. It is the smallest table on the market with a diameter of 32″.  It is ideal for apartment balconies or places where you have restricted area.

Q. Why is my burner tube (Venturi tube) so short? It will not reach to the control valve.

A. For safety reasons when the Oriflamme fire table ships the venturi tube will be secured with set screws. Remove the screws to the extend the piping and then stick your hand in the cut out hole just below your control knob to pull the venturi tube over the control valve. See the steps in the 3 photos below.

Step 1. Remove the set screws from the venturi tube below the pan burner and place into the table top.

Step 2. Stick your hand in the cut out of the side of the table and extend it over the control valve.

The Oriflamme Gas Fire Table Difference

For more than a decade All Backyard Fun  has been the industry leader in outdoor casual furniture and gas fire pit tables. And given that we only offer the highest quality outdoor furniture and fire tables, we have many satisfied customers who have had their furniture as long as we have been in business!

In today’s post we’re going to share a little more about what makes the Oriflamme gas fire tables different.

1. Oriflamme Gas Fire Tables Are Built To Last!

The photo below belongs to a customer in Minnesota who has had their Designing Fire Oriflamme gas fire table for 10+ years. We can tell the age of the table by the finish of the top and the design on the base. Please Note: This specific granite color and base style is no longer made.

Look at this Oriflamme fire table after 10+ years!

Look at this Oriflamme fire table after 10+ years!

Other than some rust and discoloration on the fire table lid (which is replaceable), the granite on the table and the base are in mint condition. Even in the harsh Minnesota winters, wiping the table twice a year with a granite sealer will allow the table to maintain its finish and prevent hairline cracks as the temperature

2.  DESIGNING FIRE WAS FIRST TO MARKET – ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS!

Designing Fire is the original creators of the fire table concept. For more than 15 years they have been designing beautiful fire tables with high quality craftsmanship. They are the first manufacturer to design tables with tanks that store inside the fire table. Finally, they also designed a proprietary burner system and are the only tables that offer dual standard 20# propane tank storage capacity inside the base of the fire table.

Headquartered in Pierre, SD, if you need any  fire table replacement parts to be replaced such as the control knob or a regulator, all of the replacement parts can be easily found at the manufacturer and shipped within 2 business days from their factory!

3. DUAL PROPANE TANK STORAGE CAPACITY

The Oriflamme gas fire tables as of this writing are the only fire table on the market that have a dual propane tank capacity on any models with a 40″ or larger size table top. The tables that support dual propane tank capacity are:

All models 40″ Square

All models 42″ Round

All models 48″ Round

All models 45″ Octagon

Dual propane tank storage

Dual propane tank storage

The tanks store inside the fire table neatly under the burner. To replace the tanks you need to lift out the fire table burner using a special wire handle tool that ships with your fire table. Because of the burner’s proprietary design, the burner plan is flat like a pizza pan and weighs approximately 13 lbs with the glass.  See how the table is set up and the tanks are stored in the following setup video shown in point #4, below.

4. Quick & Easy Set Up – NO TOOLS REQUIRED!

The Oriflamme fire tables are smartly designed. The table is easy to assemble and requires no tools. The short assembly video below gives an overview of how the table arrives and how to assemble it.

5. Low Maintenance Gas Fire Table

The Oriflamme tables are made to be outdoors year round regardless of the climate where you live. We suggest an all-weather protective cover and per the manufacturer you should seal your gas fire table so that it can withstand the elements and temperature changes from season to season.

Most the replacement parts are universal for the 38″ to 48″ size models and can be easily obtained through the manufacturer. As the manufacturer does not work with the consumer direct, you can place your order for fire replacement parts directly through All Backyard Fun.

As you can see, not only does Oriflamme make beautiful fire tables, they are fully functional and are made to last. We invite you to check out our entire line of Oriflamme gas fire tables. And if you are already a fan we’d love to see your photos and here why you love your Oriflamme gas fire table!

Fall into Family and Warmth with a Gas Fire Table

With the fall season and cool days and nights, gas fire tables are a “must” if you love the fall season and spending time with friends and families.

Dating back to ancient times, gathering around a fire has been a way to build community and also used for healing and heat. There’s something about a fire that creates warmth and intimacy and allows us to feel connected.

However, in our modern day times, there are some precautions you need to take when dealing with fires in your backyard — that’s why a fire pit table is the perfect solution. Our fire tables at All Backyard Fun have controllable flames and do not produce any soot or embers. The control knob allows you to keep fires safely enclosed and contained.

We also have a variety of sizes and shapes available, from mini fire tables by Oriflamme if you have a small space or just want to use it for 1 or 2 people.

Or you can choose a larger table 6 feet plus if you want to host a larger group. Whatever your entertaining style, there’s sure to be a fire pit that suits your needs.

Create Warm Memories with Outdoor Fire Pits

Fire pits have come a long way since the basic metal enclosures you find at campgrounds. Today, modern fire pits come in a variety of designs that you’ll love to show off in your backyard. Fire pits beckon guests to stay longer, have another drink and catch up on old times. There’s something about sitting around an open flame that makes guests want to unwind and recall fond memories. Even simple family nights or an evening nightcap with your significant other take on a special feel when you’re sitting around a beautiful roaring fire.

Throw a Fabulous Party: Fire Pit Ideas

A fire pit adds another dimension to parties and social events and can enhance just about any backyard event. Host a late evening dinner party and invite guests to dine “al fresco” and enjoy their meal outside. Sipping wine by the fire enhances its aroma and creates a romantic atmosphere. Game nights take on a more exotic feel when cast under the flickering glow of a fire. If you want family fun, re-create the adventure of a campsite by roasting s’mores and telling ghost stories from the comfort of your backyard. There are an endless amount of fire pit ideas you can think of, just by brainstorming for a few minutes.

How to Find the Perfect Outdoor Fire Pit

Finding the perfect fire pit is a matter of how you’ll most likely use it. If it’s for show, a fire bowl is a free-standing concrete decor piece that accents your backyard and adds light and dimension. Wood-burning fire pits come in a variety of sizes and can be used on your patio or in the yard. Wood-burning fire pits are less expensive, but they do require you to start a kindling fire. For those who don’t want to fuss with wood, lighters or a gas-powered flame fire table is the perfect solution. These fire pits and tables turn on and off with the flick of a switch and create the perfect fire every time.

To find your perfect fire pit, fire bowl, or fire table, take a look at what All Backyard Fun has to offer. All Backyard Fun brings you the best in backyard fire pits, patio furniture, and accessories at discount prices.

Tips for Buying an Outdoor Fire Pit Table

Founded more than a decade ago, All Backyard Fun was one of the first online casual furniture stores selling fire pit tables, drop in burners and fire glass long before they became a household name.

Today, with many options to buy an elegant fire table or build your own fire pit, the shopping experience can be overwhelming at times. And many of the customers we work with may not consider what they will like or don’t like until after they received the product.

Our mission is to help you decide on a fire table that you and your family will love for years to come. Here’s a few tips we suggest when considering your first (or next) fire pit:

 

  1. BTU Output: The British Thermal Unit or BTU is what measures how much heat your fuel source can put out. Some of our fire tables put out up to 90,000 BTU’s whereas our Crossfire brass burners can put out in excess of 450,000 BTU’s. YoungLife_Golf_gave_away_a_gas_fire_table
  2.  Fuel Source: Wood, Propane or Natural Gas? All of the fire tables we offer have the capacity to work with standard 20# propane gas tanks or you can run your own natural gas line.  For those considering a wood burning fire pit, it’s important to know that wood produces embers and in many cities where they have hazards and danger of wildfires, these type of open flame options are not permitted because you cannot control the flame size like you can with your fire table. Also, wood burning pits produce soot and the smell gets into your clothing and the smoke is not good for children or people with upper respiratory infections.NaturalHammeredCopperFireTable
  3.  Building Material: If you are building your own fire pit stone and brick are the most common finishing material. However, it is important to note what is in your surrounding – materials and colors. Stone and brick are low maintenance and made to be outdoors. For pre-made fire tables, we offer other options such as granite fire tables, hammered copper and cast aluminum depending on what type of look you are seeking.gasfiretablesvanahstone-copy
  4. Fire Media: The “fire media” is the term given to the special material such as lava rock, eco glass beads, tumbled fire glass or faux wood burning logs that you use to fill the burner of your fire table. The fire media helps to further define the look you are going for such as rustic or contemporary.Oriflamme Blue Pearl Fire Table
  5. Height: The height of your table largely depends on application. Standard coffee table height is about 21 ¾” which makes it conducive to having friendly conversation while seating and eating. This is also an ideal height if you just want to sit around your pit in some low seating chairs such as the classic Adirondacks.  You can choose or build a higher pit but take into consideration your fuel source type; ease of maintenance; if it is suitable for conversation to others standing on the other side of the fire pit; and if the heat output will be sufficient.OriflammeTablewithMarshmallows6. Location: Where will you put your fire pit? Depending on your fuel source, it may be a permanent fixture. All of our tables we offer at All Backyard Fun have the capacity to use propane and be converted to natural gas later. This is an important consideration if you are still in the process of redesigning your outdoor living space. However, not all fire tables in the market offer this capacity.Terrace Curved Sectional

5 Ways to Improve Your Patio for Fall

Why We Love Black Friday

Why We Love Black Friday

At All Backyard Fun we are counting down to outdoor patio furniture specials from all our favorite collections including Northcape International, Polywood, Oriflamme and Desert Steel outdoor accessories among others!

Dating back to the early 1930’s, Black Friday was the name given to the first major shopping day for Christmas (which falls the Friday after Thanksgiving). This is the shopping day of the year where most businesses earn their first positive revenues or go from the red to the ‘black’ in their accounting.

Thus it is a popular ritual now where retail stores and online e-tailers are known to offer their most aggressive discounts and sales of the year. ‘Tis the season of buy one get one’s, half off’s, free give-aways, and doorbuster deals.

BLUE PEARL

The savviest shoppers have been researching and planning what they’re going to buy and who they’re going to buy it from. It’s no secret e-commerce has driven retailers to compete with one another to offer consumers ridiculously great sales during the holidays.

Nowadays, .com retailers fight to get their sale out first. For example, Black Friday no longer starts on the Friday after Thanksgiving, instead it starts the Friday before Thanksgiving. So, if you’re an online retailer you better have your sales ready to go, or you’ll be scratching your head when you don’t meet your holiday sales goals.

We love Black Friday because offering aggressive deals also helps to minimize our store inventory. This in turn helps us lower our overhead and the inventory we will have to do at the end of the year! So for specialty furniture stores like All Backyard Fun this time of season is our ‘slow season’ and the sales offers allows our customers to pick up some of their favorite patio sets and outdoor furniture pits at a great deal. And we are able to make space for everything that will be offered for the spring of the next buying season.

For obvious reasons, sales have slowed compared to in-season sales. Depending on location, most people in the country aren’t buying or even thinking about outdoor furniture during the winter.

Regardless of the time of year, All Backyard Fun is a  small family owned business and always working to offer the best products at the best prices that we believe your whole family will enjoy. That’s why we love Black Friday!

It is the time of season we can offer our customers unbeatable prices on patio furniture, fire tables, and backyard accessories like we never have before. So don’t fret, All Backyard Fun has your patio covered this year with amazing doorbuster deals you won’t find anywhere else!

How to Care for Your Sunbrella Fabric

Have you ever had patio furniture and constantly cleaning up ketchup from burger night? How about that time you were out of town and your cushions were outside during that big thunderstorm? Or even if you avoid the ketchup and the rain, but the sun’s UV rays fade those once vibrant cushions?

As a patio furniture retailer, we have heard of every complaint under the sun it seems and we get asked all the time, “what can I do to better care for my cushions?”. Most times this means putting the cushion covers through the wash and risk having them shrink or fade, and even still they may not look the same afterwards. It’s also unreasonable to keep the furniture covered all the time, because you bought the furniture to enjoy your patio, not just look at furniture covers. One solution that we recommend is making sure you have high-quality Sunbrella fabrics on your patio furniture.

While the care and maintenance of this high grade fabric is fairly low, if you live in a geographic area with 4 distinct season we highly recommend all-weather covers.

Here are some helpful hints for maintaining your Sunbrella fabric:

  • Protect the area around your Sunbrella fabric when using a bleach solution – bleach may discolor non-Sunbrella fabrics. Always rinse Sunbrella thoroughly to completely remove bleach.
  • Please be aware of the environment when cleaning with bleach. Bleach can have harmful effects on the natural environment around you. We do not advise using bleach if you are surrounded by a body of water or other environment that could be affected.
  • Sunbrella fabric air-dries very quickly.
  • Machine drying is not necessary.
  • If fabric has some wrinkling, use an iron, if necessary, but only on the synthetic setting. As some irons exceed the recommended temperature on the synthetic setting, test a small inconspicuous area before ironing entire piece.

Sunbrella fabrics are very easy to care for and to maintain and to illustrate this, here is a video show you how easy it is.

Our Terrace Collection line of outdoor patio furniture comes with Sunbrella fabrics, as well as most of our furniture that we sell. We want to give you the best patio experience and that means we choose Sunbrella fabrics!
