Make your patio season last all year long by creating the perfect temperature and comfort level to attract more customers and increase your profits. The competitive price point of Schwank bistroSchwank outdoor heaters make them a go-to option for restaurant owners. 

Built with marine grade 316 stainless-steel, and available in Stainless Steel or Black Finish, and either Propane (LPG) or Natural Gas (NG) Powered. Adding heaters doesn’t mean adding eye sores, either. Our sleek heaters are available in black and stainless steel so they fit with your existing decor. BistroSchwank is available in a single-stage mode. We also have several types of mounting brackets to give you total flexibility.

This heater has one heat setting which can be controlled using the optional wireless receiver and remote. If you want to control heaters in multiple zones in one place, the patioPanel is a better control option.

BistroSchwank heaters allow you the freedom of mounting your heater the way you want. It has a variety of mounting options available for efficient heat coverage and to suit your patio setup. Choose a mounting option based on how you want your heaters to be installed.

*Note: "Mounting angles and distances are suggested to ensure comfort and are subject to site and design conditions. Install multiple heaters to keep large outdoor areas warm."

  • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

  • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

  • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
