The Tempest Torch by Travis Industries creates a distinctive source of outdoor lighting for patios, decks and landscapes. The torch features a natural gas 20,000 - 14,000 BTU burner. It is constructed of tempered glass and the majority of steel components are made of 16 gauge 304 stainless steel. The electronic ignition model is fueled by natural gas and is controlled by a wall switch control. This unit can also be used in conjunction with a programmable timer or controlled via a Smart Home system. The manual ignition model has an easy access control panel with a single on/off and flame height controller, as well as a safety shut off switch. This model comes with a rain cap which protects the flame in uncovered locations. The Tempest Torch can be post mounted, pillar mounted or mounted on your outdoor wall or structural support to provide a handsome decorative element that also illuminates. The Pillar Mount works for columns or pedestals (6" tall) and the Wall Mount is used for entry ways and sides on building. The Deck Mount Post is for installation on decks (94" tall). The In Ground Post is used for installation in ground (buried). If you need additional mounts please refer to the Travis Industries Tempest Torch Mounts.
Both the Deck Post and the In-ground post can be cut to alter the height of the installation. Note you will have to replace the pilot holes on the cut end to align with the torch head or deck mount
Tempest Torch Transformer powers up to six electronic torches. Transformer box is required to power the 2019 and newer electronic ignition torch. Operating a manual ignition torch does not require a transformer.
The Tempest Torch comes as a standard base unit (a.k.a Torch Head) that includes gas valve, burner, igniter, glass panels, rain cap and frame.
Your Tempest torch is designed to be cleaned and maintained easily. The most common maintenance that your torch will require is glass cleaning. This is done by loosening the glass retaining screws. Each piece of glass will have its own retainer. Hold the glass by the exposed edge and slide horizontally out of its tracks, the glass should slide easily if its retainer screw is loose.
Clean with glass cleaner or warm soapy water. The glass on your Tempest is tempered and designed for safety. If it breaks it will shatter into small square pieces similar to a car windshield. It is special glass and if you break one or need to replace a piece use only 3/16" thick tempered glass supplied by your Tempest Torch dealer.
To inspect for or clean debris out of the inside of your torch remove one piece of glass. This will provide access to the inside of your torch. Once your glass piece is out remove the pyramid shaped piece with the rings on the top by lifting it straight up, once you are clear of the burner elements turn it sideways and remove through the glass opening. This will provide you a clear view of all the torch components, visually check for and remove all foreign objects, vegetation, bugs , debris. When reassembling make sure you orient the Pyramid plate correctly, the burner elements that stick up through this plate are delicate. Once oriented, slide the plate straight down onto the burner assembly making sure the edges are seated all the way down.
Winterizing the Torch
These procedures only apply to areas where the torch will not be used during winter or for a long period of time. Shut off gas supply to the torch. Place the included rain cap over on top of the torch. If additional protection is desired, a cover may be placed over the torch, making sure it does not damage the glass.
