  • Product Overview

    The Lava Heat Alto Patio Heater allows you and your customers to enjoy restaurant patios, pool decks, and other outdoor spaces longer into fall and winter months. Use this 48,000 BTU portable heater to warm areas up to 144 square feet, since it sends out radiant heat in all directions while in operation. Built to withstand harsh environmental conditions for many years, this model comes partially-assembled for quick set up. It also easily turns on with a flip of a button, and you can easily adjust heat output as needed.

    Natural Gas Heating

    Natural gas heating allows for hours of continuous operation. Simply attach the included 10-foot gas line and start heating your space immediately. Using natural gas also means very little maintenance and upkeep, and this type of heater tends to cost less to operate than propane heaters.

    Elegant Style and Trusted Construction

    Some outdoor heaters are unattractive and take away from the ambiance of an outdoor space, but the Lava Heat Alto enhances it thanks to its Italian styling. Lava Heat also produced multiple colors to match nearly any outdoor décor, so pick between these options: brushed copper, gun metal, heritage bronze, stainless steel, and matte black.

    More important than its attractive design is its durable construction. It comes partially-assembled for quick set up and is built with the highest-quality parts to handle rain, snow, and wind. Shatter-proof glass encloses the flame and can survive much more than knock-offs that are less expensive. Additionally, a built-in safety switch shuts off the unit if it tilts or falls over.

    Infrared Radiant Heat

    While most outdoor heaters just heat the surrounding air, this heater uses infrared radiant heat to warm surrounding objects. This means everyone sitting around it will be warmed to a comfortable temperature without the harsh heat and air quality issues associated with an outdoor fireplace. A large dome sends the infrared rays down to people and objects in 360 degrees up to 5 feet in all directions (up to 144 square feet).

    Additional Features

    • Runs on Natural Gas—It runs entirely on natural gas to heat any area instead of propane fuel. Since natural gas is easier to maintain and less expensive to operate than propane heaters, you may save money in the long-run and will certainly benefit from more hassle-free heat.
    • 360 Degrees of Heat Distribution—A solid steel emitter and reflector dome at the top of this Lava Heat Alto heater allow for 360 degrees of heat distribution. You will be able to feel the heat no matter where you are sitting.
    • Powerful Heating Power—If you're within 12 feet of the heater at any time, its 48,000 BTUs of heat output will ensure that you stay warm.
    • Clean Burning Performance—This heater efficiently uses fuel due to its clean burning performance, which will keep the heating costs as low as possible.
    • Integrated Table: A steel surface extending from the base serves as an extra table when you're outdoors relaxing with friends and family.
    • Certifications for Safe Operation: It has been CSA- and CE-certified for safe operation.


    The Lava Heat Alto Natural Gas Patio Heater provides years of continuous use and ambiance to both residential and commercial outdoor spaces.
