With a patented design and high-quality construction materials, our incinerators allow you to have an efficient burn in the safest way possible. We keep your safety as one of our top priorities, and you can find even more helpful tips on our Resources tab to ensure you always have the best burning experience.
We encourage you to read through our complete Safety & Assembly Guide before ever utilizing your incinerator. However, here are some of our most important safety tips you should know when burning.
1. Always Know What You’re Burning
Before filling your burn barrel, know what you’re putting inside. Different types of wood burn at different rates and there are certain items you never want to burn, such as batteries, aerosol sprays, or other environmentally detrimental substances. Be prepared and environmentally responsible by only burning approved debris, such as dried leaves, paper, and branches.
2. Be Aware of the Conditions
When planning to use your incinerator, check your surroundings and weather conditions. Make sure you set your unit on a level area with no low-hanging branches that could interfere with the incinerator. Always double-check weather and wind conditions to make sure your burning experience will be as safe as possible.
3. Use the Proper Equipment
To prevent burns, always use heavy-duty gloves when touching the incinerator. Be sure to utilize the provided handle when removing or inserting the domed cover. It is also wise to use gloves when moving the burn barrel or inserting the Angle Grates as an added safety precaution.
4. Clean Up is Important
Our burn barrels make quick work of your debris, but cleaning up afterward is still important. Make sure to monitor the level of ash being collected at the bottom of your incinerator and never let the ash reach the Angle Grates. When disposing of ash, remember to wait at least 24 hours after burning in order to allow enough cooling time. If you wish to move your incinerator before the ashes completely cool, pour water directly onto the ashes. Always use caution when cleaning up and moving your incinerator.
5. Stay Informed & Prepared
When using our incinerators, it is vital to know all of the highlighted Safety Precautions that can be found on our website. You should also research local burning laws and regulations specific to your area as they can be different across state and county lines. Keep up to date with weather reports, environmental precautions, and local air quality conditions to keep your burning experience as safe as possible.
Before lighting your incinerator, know the contact information for your local emergency departments just in case you need it. It’s never a bad idea to be informed and prepared for any situation.
While these are important safety tips to remember when burning, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with all of our safety precautions. We are dedicated to providing you with the safest burning experience possible and hope you have a wonderful time with our incinerators.
