About the Manufacturer

The original Sun Glo heater was designed in 1961 by Edwin J. Cowan, a leading U.S. infrared heating appliance engineer. A unique demand existed in California for decorative, yet practical, gas fired heaters. Mr. Cowan developed the circular radiant heater primarily for use in restaurants, hotels and country clubs.

The original challenge of designing an outdoor heater was to create an appliance that not only produced a comfortable amount of heat, but would also withstand the rigors of the outdoor environment. The Sun Glo heater has led way in meeting both of these challenges. Part of the secret of Sun Glo's success is not the amount of heat it produces, but how the heat is distributed. The deep dish reflector broadcasts the radiant heat over a large area so everyone can enjoy it. Sun Glo heaters are designed to stay lit even in a light breeze. To heat people outdoors, Sun Glo patio heaters utilize infrared heat. Infrared heat warms people like the sun on a cold day. The air temperature does not need to build up before you feel the warmth of the emerging sun. Infrared heat passes through the air heating people, and all solid objects.

Since the development of Sun Glo patio heaters the basic design has been modified for a wide variety of uses. The Sun Glo heater is now a welcome feature at popular resorts and hotels, fine restaurants and cafes, swimming pool and spa areas, and ski lodges. Residential and commercial users alike have discovered the benefits of extending the outdoor season. The quiet radiant warmth of these 40,000 and 50,000 BTU/hr patio heaters has been enjoyed world wide. When people want the very best, they choose Sun Glo heaters.
