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.

Step 3: The venturi tube once connected over the control valve should look like the photo below.

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

All Backyard Fun loves that not only we have an opportunity to educate our greater community on the construction of outdoor furniture and how gas fire table works but also that we get to help such a great cause!

During the 9 day event the team at All Backyard Fun spoke to thousands of visitors about our unique collection of beautifully crafted Oriflamme gas fire pit tables. And we also introduced them to some of the most popular patio sets from this season’s Casual Market Chicago furniture industry trade show such as our SunVilla Laurel Deep Seating Collection.

With a ‘mini showroom’ incorporated to our trade show booth, visitors could come and hang out on one of our super comfy deep seating patio sets and see our Oriflamme gas fire tables in action. They could also touch and feel fabrics, frame and peruse a variety of swatch and urban fire glass colors.

Congratulations to all the great folks we met who left with a fun new patio setup like this sweet couple below – testing out their new Northcape Bainbridge 3 piece Sectional featured with the Oriflamme Blue Pearl Granite gas fire table. (Note: Image colors slightly vary because we are indoors).

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.

home-and-garden

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!

15 Reasons We Love the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table

As the country’s first and leading distributor for the Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables, the team at All Backyard Fun has gained extensive experience in product information, sales, technical support and installation since it’s introduction to the market more than a decade go.

The introduction of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table was the first of its kind bringing outdoor elegance together with the concept of ‘designed fire’. The patent pending burner and vibrant colored fire glass added additional options to personalize the tables to the customer’s reason or season.

While many fire pit tables, none have been able to quite effectively compete with the ingenuity and beautiful design of the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table.

OriflammeBenefits

 ORIFLAMME FIRE TABLE FEATURES & DIFFERENTIATORS:

In addition to the reasons featured in the photo, here are 15 MORE reasons why we love Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables and hope you will love them too!

  1. It will warm you up! The Oriflamme fire pit table not only provides a beautifully designed piece of furniture, it actually produces warmth. Oriflamme is truly one of the ‘hottest’ tables on the market with a heat source of up to 75,000 BTU’s
  2. Coffee Table height. You can sit down comfortably and enjoy conversation with friends and it will work complimentary (design & functionality) to most outdoor patio sets. Coffee table height table is 21 3/4 inches.
  3.  Long burn time. The burn time lasts an average of 16-18 hours on high with two tanks (but can last up to 35 hours depending on outdoor conditions and flame height)
  4.  Adjustable flame change the height from low to high for warmth or ambiance
  5. Heat comes from the bottom – and why does this matter? Because if the heat comes from the bottom of the table and it rises – the warmth will be felt at the level in which you are seated. Other fire pit tables heat from the top meaning the fire warms ‘the sky’ and not you (unless you are standing and slightly tilting toward it).
  6. The tanks are neatly contained inside the table – The tanks are not external and therefore need to be hidden because they are unsightly. (see our video below that outlines how and where the tanks are stored)
  7. Easy to assemble (No tools are required) – You can have your fire pit set up and ready to go in minutes 
  8. Easy Off Switch – Designed with hidden switch (push and ignite the flame to light and simply turn off when you are done).
  9. Table components are interchangeable – If there are any problems you can fix that part without worrying about having to send your entire table in to be serviced.
  10.  Natural gas component kit available – This fire pit table uses 2 propane tanks but if you want to customize it and run natural gas to it that is an option as well
  11. Hoses are available for larger remote propane tanks
  12. MADE IN THE USA! Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are proudly made in the midwest United States and each table is handcrafted and made to order.
  13. SUSTAINABLE With Proven Market! The Oriflamme Fire Pit Tables are here to stay. They have been on the market for more than a decade and are not a seasonal or limited production table. They have a classic timeless look and will hold up for years to come. You can find product reviews easily online and rest assured knowing that if any problems occur with the table you can call the manufacturer and obtain replacement parts with ease.
  14. Clean & Elegant Design – Many customers love the clean and elegant design. Whether you invest thousands of dollars on your outdoor living space or you want your patio to look like a million bucks, the Oriflamme Fire Pit Table has a very classy design. It is constructed of the highest quality and the powder coat has a 7 year warranty against rust so it is made to withstand the elements year round!

5 Ways to add life to your backyard

5 Ways to Add Life to Your Backyard

Over the last generation the ‘traditional backyard’ has significantly transformed from a square green box yard with a flip top grill and slip n slide to an outdoor casual living space.

Old school backyard fun - Wham O's Slip N Slide.

Old school all backyard fun – Wham O’s Slip N Slide.

Today the backyard is treated the same as any room in the home  where landscape architects and designers advise on effective and creative use of space; colors; outdoor patio furniture; and accessories. Outdoor kitchens and movie screens are now essential and no longer considered ‘extras’. And outdoor fire pits and tables have made it comfortable and fun to hang out in the backyard regardless of the time of day or season.

However, like most home renovation projects it is a seemingly never ending process where different areas of the yard get developed over time for a variety of reasons.

So what are some simple things you can you do in the meantime and in between time to liven up your backyard?

Here’s 5 of our staff’s picks to brighten your backyard:

 #1 Play that funky music!

Jazz up any outdoor space, rain or shine, with an outdoor music player such as the Outcast family of multimedia entertainer products. Up to 20 hours battery life and 300 feet of broadcast area (depending on model).

  1. Rinse, Re-use, Recycle! – Plant that guy right back where he came from. Of course it has to be a living tree with the roots still intact, but channel your inner hippie and enjoy your tree for many more years to come.
  2. Give back to Mother Nature – She has provided you with a glorious tree, now it’s your turn to give back to Mother Nature, and her animal friends. A nice way to get rid of your Christmas tree is by turning it in to a bird feeder. You can put it in the ground, or stay lazy and keep it in its stand. Get the kids involved – make a cranberry and popcorn string, toss some stale bread in and around it and… BOOM! You’ll have chickadees, cardinals, song sparrows, and many other birds of kin taking shelter in your backyard.
  3. Garden galore – Cut off the branches, and use the trunk to edge the garden you’ve been planning for so long now. Hello 2016 garden goals!
  4. Cozy on up – Feeling self-sustaining? Chop the tree up and use it as fire wood, duh!
  5. Recycle the boring way – Many communities will have tree-recycling programs. This is a nice way to give back to your community, as the program will chop the tree up and probably use the wood for parks and public spaces.
