This is an extremely versatile piece of hardwear that can find its place in any garden

Eventually the standard ruby bulbs in your heater will expire. Purchase a 4 set of gold bulbs and you will have them on hand to convert your unit in to gold heater when the time arises
* * * 2014 VERSION NOW BEING SOLD * * * from now onwards we are selling the 2014 version of the U3, which has an attractive hammered black finish and dual switch. The dual switch allows the user to operate the heater using all 4 or just 2 heater heads at one time, optimising the heat delivery and power consumption
WHAT ARE GOLD BULBS, AND WHY SHOULD I ADD THE SPARE SET TO MY ORDER? each heater comes with standard 1000 hour ruby bulbs installed. Gold lamps offer an advantage because they are rated at 5000 hours and thus last up to 5 times longer then red bulbs. Gold bulbs also emit gold-tinged infra-red light, which lends the heater more to producing a pleasant illumination on the table below. Adding a set of gold bulbs gives you the opportunity to improve the performance of your heater when the ruby elements expire, and at the current price they offer excellent value for money
CLAMP IT, HANG IT, STAND IT clamp it to a parasol, or purchase the optional accessories to use it as a marquee hanging heater or a conventional standing heater
LIGHT, NOT JUST HEAT designed specifically to double as a light, providing enough illumination to cover the majority of outdoor furniture sets
INFRARED HEAT infrared is the most effective and efficient form of radiant heat. It does not blow away in the wind (as with most gas patio heaters) and heats only people, not the air in between
ECONOMICAL costs less than 25 pence per hour to run based on electricity costs of 12p/Kw hour
INSTANT HEAT, NO WARM UP TIME as soon as the heater is switched on the heat is immediately effective, unlike with gas patio heaters which require a warming up period
DIRECTIONAL each heater lamp can have its trajectory adjusted to direct heat and light exactly where it is required
SAFETY each lamp has a protective safety gauze

I ordered this at 11:00 (thank you Daniel) and it was here the following morning! I took advantage of the extra Gold Bulbs and I can tell you that the whole package was a great deal, best price anywhere.

Ordered on Tuesday, arrived at 9am Wednesday, very impressive. An excellent product and great value for money as the product includes a spare set of Gold bulbs. Enquired on the availabilty of an English instruction manual and also the four small brackets and wing nuts included with the product. I should have noticed that an English instruction manual is available at the product website. The small brackets can be attached to each heater to assist handling when moving/directing the lamps. I received a very prompt, courteous and helpful reply. An excellent company to deal with.

Received heat/light gazebo heater today after only ordering it a couple of days ago. We have put it up in our gazebo with the hanging attachment, looks great and on testing it for a short while feels great too. Excellent value with the free bulbs and hanging bracket. Thank you so much.

I bought this product with the gold bulb deal. This in my opinion was fantastic value. I had a few teething problems with regard to the lack of instructions and a dodgy filament or 2. I spoke with the team (via email). The responses were fast and courteous and above all, we reached an outcome whereby I was refunded additional Bulbs. This was done in a very timely manner. The product itself is great, the other reviews do this product justice. My point is how many times do we have problems with bigger company's with customer services? This company receives 10/10 in my opinion and without hesitation I will shop here again, and recommend this company to any potential customer. Thanks again to Gardenitems.oc.uk

Ordered on Tuesday, arrived Wednesday. Took advantage of the gold bulb offer. The heater came with the free ruby bulbs in the lamp, with the gold bulbs wrapped separately in the box. Expected the gold bulbs to be in the heater first, but it's all the same thing, I suppose. I will use the ruby bulbs and install the gold one when they are used up

Okay product and delivery, but couldn't use it the day it arrived because there were no instructions in the box. Any product is as good as defunct if you haven't got the information on how to use it.
RESPONSE FROM GARDENITEMS.CO.UK: Our apologies for the missing instructions, and we understand that this would be very frustrating if you are keen to get something set up and in use the same day. We have now set up a link on this product page to the instructions, so that they can be viewed and printed online. Our apologies again.

Goes up and starts warming us up within a minute or so, even on an October evening, so will be looking to use it for our bonfire night party. One small thing, the colour of the unit is not solid black, it's more of variegated black/silver. We were expecting solid black, but the black/silver I mention still looks fine.
RESPONSE FROM GARDENITEMS.CO.UK: pleased to hear that your U3 is performing well. We know what you mean about the colour of the heater. It's actually an interpolated black and silver die-cast aluminium, which means that it can look quite black or quite silver, depending on how the light reflects off its surface. We are pleased to be selling this newest version of the heater, as die-cast aluminium is of superior quality to a painted finish, which can chip and flake with time. Thank you for your feedback.

Much cheaper than my local garden centre, and delivered next day at no extra cost. Heater is excellent quality and makes a real difference on these chillier September days. Instructions were missing, but received a PDF file promptly from customer services. Altogether very happy.
