|Publication Date:||1 November 2007|
This Standard applies to newly produced gas-fired outdoor infrared patio heaters (See Part IV, Definitions) hereinafter referred to as heaters or appliances, constructed entirely of new, unused parts and materials.
Patio heaters are:
a. For use with natural gas; and
b. For use with liquefied petroleum (propane) gases.
The heaters covered by this Standard are intended for installation in and heating of residential or nonresidential spaces (see Part IV, Definitions).
Infrared patio heaters may be suspended overhead, angle mounted overhead, wall mounted, floor mounted, or for tabletop use.
Patio heaters intended for tabletop use shall be limited to input ratings of 15,000 Btu/hr (4 396 W) or less.
Infrared patio heaters may be:
a. For connection to a fixed fuel piping system operating at inlet gas pressures not exceeding ½ psi (3.5kPa); or
b. For connection to an integral self-contained liquefied petroleum (propane) gas supply system, provided the appliance incorporates mounting means for the attachment of a maximum of one cylinder limited to a maximum of 20 lb (9.1 kg) of fuel:
1. Operating at a regulated outlet pressure not exceeding 11 in wc (2.74 kPa); or
2. Operating at regulated outlet pressures in excess of 11 in wc (2.74 kPa) but not greater than 5 psi (34.5 kPa).
If a value for measurement as given in this Standard is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated value is to be regarded as the specification.
