PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Bella’s design results in a more efficient heating canopy. The shade captures heat, redirecting it downward in a highly effective chimney-like fashion, enveloping guests with glowing warmth. Uneven burner flame or pilot relighting caused by wind is mitigated as the shade shields the heater’s engine from the elements. There is also the option of white or programmable colored lights, lasting more than 8 hours per charge, allowing Bella to entertain year round.

Patio heaters were initially invented in the early 1960s in Southern California. Despite their broad use worldwide, little meaningful development has taken place in over 50 years except for making them cheap and virtually disposable. New materials, manufacturing techniques, and design applications had to be adapted or invented, all while adhering to strict government regulations and subscribing to "green" manufacturing standards. Worldwide patents and awards, along with thousands of happy customers the world over, confirm our vision.
Overcoming the aesthetic and mechanical shortcomings of the traditional, "mushroom" type, outdoor heater while meeting the stringent, overly complicated, and varied governmental regulations. This process required that new materials and manufacturing techniques be created or adapted. For example, our patented Firewall shade liner can withstand burst of heat in excess of 1000C while effectively reflecting the infrared energy in a manner that greatly improves user comfort and performance.
