1. Installation and surface
Make sure you place the fire bowl on a sturdy and flat surface. This prevents the fire bowl from falling over or wobbling during use. If possible, choose a fireproof surface, such as stones or tiles, to minimize the risk of fire.
2. Safe distance
Always keep sufficient distance between the fire bowl and flammable materials such as garden furniture, plants, curtains or overhanging branches. Place the fire bowl in a safe location, away from potentially flammable objects. This reduces the risk of accidental fires.
3. Fire extinguisher or water nearby
Make sure you always have a fire extinguisher or a bucket of water nearby when using the fire bowl. This is important in the event that a fire unexpectedly occurs or the fire goes out of control. Be prepared and act quickly to limit potential damage.
4. Keep an eye on children and pets
Supervise children and pets at all times when the fire bowl is in use. An open fire can be attractive to curious little ones and pets, so make sure they keep a safe distance. Also teach children to be careful around the fire.
5. Use suitable firewood
Only use suitable firewood in your fire bowl. Avoid burning painted wood, treated wood, plastic, paper or other materials that may produce toxic fumes or pose a fire hazard. Choose dry, untreated wood that is specifically intended for fire.
6. Put out the fire
Make sure you extinguish the fire completely before leaving the fire bowl unattended. Extinguish the fire with water or sand and check that there are no smoldering remains. Allow the fire bowl to cool before moving or storing it.
When you use The Top you can also place it over the fire bowl to extinguish the fire. This allows you to move on faster and still leave the bowl safely behind.
Always take the necessary precautions and use your common sense. This way you can fully enjoy the warmth and coziness of the fire, while ensuring the safety of yourself and your environment.
