Best Advice for Preparing your Outdoor Furniture for Winter

While it’s difficult to admit, the weather has been changing and it’s time to start thinking about storing your outdoor furniture for the winter. Before you let your frustration with mother nature get the best of you, take note of these great tips for winterizing your furniture. Come next spring, you will be thanking yourself.

  • Clean it Up!!

There’s no use in properly storing your furniture for an entire season without first cleaning it. You probably invested a good sum of money in your outdoor space, so take note and spend the time to clean the furniture. At best, it’ll be virtually impossible to clean come spring. At worst, it will be covered in mold and rendered unusable, costing you a lot of money and frustration.

Before getting ready to pack up your outdoor furniture, give it a good scrub down. Usually, a solution of water and dish soap will do the trick and is generally safe on materials such as wicker, mesh, plastic, and wrought iron. That being said, always do a spot test in an inconspicuous area if you aren’t sure.

If you’re tackling wood pieces, it’s best to pick up a specially formulated cleanser that will leave your pieces spotless and condition the wood at the same time. Helpful hint: a toothbrush is a great tool for getting into small crevices that may otherwise have been overlooked.

  • Give it a Rub Down!

Depending on the type of outdoor furniture you have, you will want to add a layer of protection to help keep the integrity of the material. It’s not absolutely necessary, but doesn’t hurt and you will be happy with the results come spring.

For recycled plastic furniture, such as Polywood or Seaside Casual, because it’s made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, it is extremely durable and weather resistant. The most you will probably need to do is wipe it down with a mild dish soap and warm water. Use a clean cloth or soft bristled brush to tackle tough dirt and let air dry. Even though this material can hold up to harsh weather conditions, if you are forced to leave in elements all winter, it makes sense to cover it up for less clean up when the weather warms up.

MalibuRightArmFor wicker furniture, dust it regularly with a soft cloth, and avoid using abrasive cleaners or creams or furniture polish on it. If you see signs of mildew or mold, clean with a strong solution of bleach in soapy water. Otherwise, before storage, clean with a damp not wet cloth. If any piece gets saturated, bring it inside to dry and be careful not to bend, fold or flex any part of it while its wet. For that added layer of protection, paste wax works the best for wicker or rattan furniture.

If you have cast-aluminum or wrought-iron furniture, there are different trains of thought when preparing for winter. Wrought-iron pieces should not be left out, as it can rust easily. Since it tend to be a heavy material, it’s recommended to purchase quality covers that encompass all aspects of the furniture. If rust does appear, sand down any troubled areas and apply a silicone sealant.

Cast aluminum furniture is one of the most durable and weather resistant pieces of patio furniture that you can buy. Cast aluminum is basically rust proof so you don’t need to worry too much about moisture. There are plenty of covers that are available that fit all sorts of different shapes and sizes of patio furniture. Another added benefit of cast aluminum is that it’s super lightweight. If you’re concerned about a big windstorm or crazy snow conditions, it should be easy to move this furniture into a place away from the elements.

  • Go ahead, cover it!

Tagalys Web Banner-Outdoor CoversEven if you’re planning on storing your outdoor furniture in a shed or garage, you need to cover everything up to protect it from dust, moisture, and all those other things that are best avoided. If you’re leaving everything outside, you absolutely need to ensure that the covers you choose are weather resistant and are able to withstand the elements. We have a great selection of outdoor covers for any size furniture, to include fire pits/tables.

Don’t forget your furniture cushions need love too. They should be wiped down with a damp cloth and let air dry before storing for the winter. If you find yourself needing replacement cushions, we have a great selection of those as well and can offer pretty much any size for any brand of furniture.

The key component in prolonging your outdoor patio furniture is yearly maintenance. It’s time well spent when the next season rolls around. Outdoor decor is an investment in your home, and as such you will want to protect yourself in the long term.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Football season is here, the days are getting shorter, and the nights are cooling down. Fall is here and at All Backyard Fun, we get  a lot of phone calls of people asking what to do with their patio for the fall and how to prepare for the winter.

Fall is still a great time to entertain guests, and often times one of the best times of the year to have guests over because of the temperate weather that the season brings. Pool parties may be winding down, but BBQs and gatherings for sports are still in full swing.
