Aside from its obvious sculptural appeal, the design of the Kindle Heater results in a more effective heating canopy. Instead of the heat dissipating as it rises, the shade directs it downward, using a chimney-like effect, enveloping the user in consistent warmth that is softer, more pleasant, than with a stand-alone unit. Pilot re-lighting or uneven burner flame caused by the slightest breeze is mitigated as the shade acts as a shield that, like a hurricane lantern, protects the heater’s engine from the elements. Each shade is lined with a revolutionary, patented, Firewall Protection for added safety and improved performance. The Kindle Heater shells are made of 100% recyclable composite materials that are impact, dent, and scratch resistant, UV protected, virtually chemical proof, and easy to clean for years of good looks. All Kindle Living components are handmade and assembled in Southern California.
