1. GENERAL
These installation and operating instructions are
intended for Series 4N51/62, 4L51/4L62 and
44N/L5, 44N/L6 Heaters. This appliance is an infrared fixed pole patio, deck and garden heater for
operation with Natural Gas 4N51, 4N62 and 44N5,
44N6; and Propane 4L51,4L62 and 44L5, 44L6.
The burner is controlled and adjusted by the gas
control knob at the top of the heater, and the gas
supply is fed up through the inside of the pole using
flexible gas hose. All installations must conform to
the following installation requirements, as well as
local and national code requirements, including the
current CAN/CGA-B149.1-00 (latest edition) installation code and the ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition) for
the U.S.A. for gas burning appliances and equipment. Due to ever changing standards and requirements, revision to our equipment and installation
procedures may be necessary. In case of discrepancies, the latest installation manual will take priority.
2. INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
The Series 4N51/62, 4L51/4L62 and 44N/L5,
44N/L6 Heaters must always maintain the proper
clearance to combustible materials. (Top 18” sides
24” below 24”). Do not use this heater in an explosive atmosphere. Keep heater away from areas
where gasoline or other flammable liquids or vapors are stored.
WARNING: Improper operation, installation,
adjustment, alteration, servicing or maintenance
can cause severe property damage, serious injury
or death. Carefully read this User Guide before
installing and setting up the heater.
3. GAS SUPPLY:
NATURAL GAS
PROPANE
The heater comes pre-piped with a flexible hose
assembly inside the pole with 3/8” male flared fitting for hook-up to a 5” w.c. Natural Gas supply.
This heater requires a natural gas pressure regulator (not supplied). Heaters may be connected to a
regulator individually or in zones. Regulators must
be properly sized and adequate for each particular
installation.
The heater comes equipped with a hose assembly
for hook-up to a propane gas supply.
•
•
Never use a propane supply with a
damaged valve connection.
Never connect an unregulated propane
supply to the heater
Although gas connections on the heater are leak tested at the factory prior to shipment, potential hazards
could result during shipment. Therefore, For Your Safety a complete gas tightness check of all connections
and hoses must be performed at the installation site, prior to use as per code.
TO LEAK TEST:
Make a soapy solution part liquid detergent and one part water. The soap solution can be applied
with a spray bottle, brush or rag. Soap bubbles will appear where a gas leak is present.

CONNECTION AND TESTING:
NATURAL GAS CONNECTION:
•
•
Connect the Natural Gas supply line to the flexible hose at
the base of the pole as per gas code.
A 5” w.c. Gas Pressure Regulator is required (not supplied)
after the shut off valve to each heater or zone.
PROPANE CONNECTION:
•
Connect the Propane Gas supply line to the flexible hose at
the base of the pole as per gas code.
•
A 10” w.c. Gas Pressure Regulator is required (not supplied) after the shut off valve to each heater or zone.
LEAK TEST:
Now that the heater is assembled, for your safety you must perform
a leak test of all connections and hoses,
Mix equal parts of water and soap, brushing mixture on all joints.
1. Ensure that the heater gas control knob is fully closed by turning
completely clockwise.
2. Open gas valve
3. Apply the soap solution generously to all connections and hoses.
If you detect bubbles, there IS a leak. Close gas valve completely.
Retighten the leaking connection and repeat leak test process, until
ALL leaking has ceased, no matter how small.
If the leak cannot be repaired permanently, close the gas valve completely
and contact a qualified and licensed gas technician.

7. A SAFE LOCATION FOR THE HEATER:
Caution:
The main application of this heater is to provide
radiant heat comfort in the outdoors, at poolside,
spa areas, terraces, patios and work areas, etc.
It is necessary to provide “wind breakers”, against
wind and breezes.
When objects are left under a heater in operation,
such objects will be subject to radiant heat and
could be damaged.
NOTE : This heater is approved for outdoor use only:
•
Respect minimum clearances to combustibles as shown in figure 12 below.
•
Install heater on a levelled, solid and stable surface.
•
Do not install in an explosive environment. Keep away from areas where gas vapours
are present or inflammable liquids are stored or used.
•
In case of high winds, completely shut-off the heater and gas valve. Remove reflector
dome if necessary
7. 1 CLEARANCES FROM COMBUSTIBLES:
The clearances to combustibles are established at
points reaching a surface temperature of 1600 F.
Some materials such as awnings or plastic may
require higher distances.

9.1 STORAGE
When heater is not in use for a prolonged period
of time verify that the gas valve is fully and tightly
closed. To avoid damage, the reflector may be
removed.
9.2 PREVENTATIVE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The burner area is likely to attract spiders, especially inside orifices. Once a year, the heater should be
inspected for spider webs, insects, and debris around burners and orifices. Plugged injectors or orifices
will obstruct the gas flow to the burner. This will result in burner malfunction or possible damage.
Have heater inspected if.…..
• you smell gas combined with yellow tipped flames on burner.
• heater does not provide expected heat capacity
• burner makes little popping sounds while operating, other than when shutting down after
being turned off. When heater is warming up or cooling down a pinging metallic noise is normal.
9.3 SAFETY
•
•
•
•
•
Check periodically for leaks in the system, or immediately when you smell gas.
In case a leak is detected, extinguish all open flames in the area.
Never leak test while smoking.
If you cannot repair a leak, turn off gas supply at the supply valve and contact your gas supplier
or a qualified, licensed gas technician.
Do not alter or modify this heater in any way
