GENERAL PRECAUTIONS

Halofire Torches are widely used all year round.  They are have become very popular for summer, fall, and winter activities.  They are used in back yards, beaches, and to decorate or add atmosphere to events like family BBQ's, weddings, holidays, and community events.  Remember to treat Halofire torches with the same respect you would treat a candle, matches, lighters, or any open flame.  Think of a Halofire torch as a large candle.  Like all open flames there is an element of risk associated with them. Never leave Halofire torches unattended.

 

Children are naturally fascinated by flames.  Invest the time to talk to your kids about the risks and dangers to ensure they have a healthy respect for your Halofire torches.  Kids should know that Halofire torches are like lighters, matches, and candles, they are tools for adults and they should never play with them.

Established a safety zone of 6-feet around the Halofire torches for your kids, just like you would a fireplace, campfire, wood stove, or while cooking in the kitchen.

Don’t forget about your pets.  If you have a pet that has not been around Halofire torches or an open flame use caution.  Set the Halofire touches out unlit before the event so your pet can get use to them and so you can see how your pet will react to them.  If Fido thinks a Halofire torch is a big stick to play with you do not want to find that out when he is running around the yard with a lit torch in his mouth spreading flames from fuel spilling out of the torch and freaking out your guests.  Cats can get to almost anywhere and their fur, especially their tales can catch fire very quickly.  Always watch your pets around any open flames.

Have an ABC fire extinguisher readily available when using Halofire torches.  Keep the fire extinguisher in close proximity to the area you are using the Halofire torches.  Mount the fire extinguisher to keep it secured and to prevent it from being tipped over or picked up and moved.  Make sure your fire extinguisher is charged and operational.

Use caution and try to avoid using water to put out a Halofire torch on fire.  Water can spread Halofire torch oil without extinguishing the flame and compound an already bad situation.

DISTANCE FROM COMBUSTIBLES/FLAMMABLES

Ensure there are no tree limbs or other overhangs or combustibles within 6 feet of your torches.  Trim back any low branches if relocating the Halofire torch isn't an option and keep the wick short.

Consider other objects near the flame.  Wind gusts can bend the flame from torches and could ignite combustible objects. The wind can also move objects and nearby branches into the flame.  The best option is to ensure your Halofire torches are placed with ample room to the sides, above, and below.

Consider the height and location of the torches in proximity of guests.  Halofire torches, not unlike a standing house lamp, can be toppled.  Regardless of the height or location of your Halofire torches you should take care when placing them by putting them in area away from places that your guests may accidentally walk, stand or gather to close to a lighted torch.  Remember if the Halofire torch fuel spills the vapor from the fuel will spread the flames rapidly.

 

Keep Halofire torches at a minimum 6-foot distance from each other.

IN CASE OF FIRE - BE PREPARED

Have an ABC chemical fire extinguisher readily available when using Halofire torches.  Keep the fire extinguisher in close proximity to the area you are using the Halofire torch(s).  Mount the fire extinguisher to keep it secured and to prevent it from being tipped over or picked up and moved.  Make sure your fire extinguisher is charged and operational. Use caution and avoid using water to put out a Halofire torch on fire.  Water can spread Halofire torch oil without extinguishing the flame and compound an already bad situation.

Have a fire plan in the event of a fire caused by a spilled Halofire torch.  One person can assure the safety of guests and get a fire extinguisher while another person calls 9-1-1.

SECURING TORCHES

Torches should be secured and adequately placed so the winds cannot tip them over.  They should not be easily knocked over.  If you are using Halofire torch stands, make sure there are weighed down or secured to the ground.  Consider wind direction and speed.

TORCH FUEL

Keep torch fuel supply safely stored.  Torch oil should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location and a distance away from open flames or heat sources.

The fuel used in Halofire torches is flammable.  Clean up spills promptly.

In case fuel spills over the rim of the reservoir cannister, wipe excess and allow ample time for fuel to evaporate before lighting any torch.

Read the torch fuel warning and use instruction labels carefully so you know what to do in the event that you come in contact with the oil.

Never move a lit Halofire torch.  Always extinguish torch and give at least 30 minutes to cool before moving.

Only use fuel made or approved for Halofire torches.  Remove the reservoir cannister and fill it separately from the torch.  The reservoir in most traditional torches is a removable can. Minimize the risk of the accident by pulling out the can and filling it on a stable surface, away from the Halofire torch, capping it, then reinserting it into the torch.

Do not overfill your Halofire torch reservoir. Fill to top level line only. Do not top it off to the rim. Once the submerged end of your wick is in the oil, it will wick what's needed to the external end. A completely full reservoir won't lead to a larger flame or decrease the frequency of filling the reservoir, it does increase the likelihood of spills and sloshing should the torch get bumped.

A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) can be obtained from Halofire, free of charge, for any Halofire branded fuel product.  To make a request, please use the contact information shown below.

EXTINGUISHMENT

Extinguish the Halofire torch(s) when you are done using.  Our torches are equipped with a “snuffer” device.  Once the flame has been extinguished, monitor for a few additional minutes to ensure flame does not reignite. 

Never attempt to ‘blow out” a torch.

Allow Halofire torch(s) cool down for at least 30 minutes before moving them.

  STORAGE

Store Halofire torch oil in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location a good distance away from heat, sparks, and open flames.

 

Always store torches in secure upright position.  Torches containing fuel, or fuel residue must also be stored in a well-ventilated location a good distance away from heat, sparks, and open flames.
