Spec Sheet
Are gas lamps safe?

Yes! American Gas Lamp Works gas and electric lamps employ well-proven designs and technologies. Gas lighting actually predates electric lighting by several decades, and the Welsbach mantle lighting system has been used the world over for more than a century. You should keep in mind that gas lamps do get hot and should not be placed where they can be touched by children or animals.

What types of gas do your lamps use?

Our open flickering flame gas lamps can be equipped for use with natural gas (NG) ONLY. Our Welsbach mantle gas lamps can be equipped for use with natural gas (NG) or liquid propane (LP). Our electric lamps require 120V electricity.

How much gas do AGLW fixtures burn when operating?

The amount of gas your lamps will use depends on the type of gas and burner you’re using. Please refer to our BTUs and Gas Facts page for gas usage along various configurations.

The Athena copper gas lamp by American Gas Lamp Works is a versatile lighting solution that can be adapted to various settings. The Athena lamp is named after the Greek goddess Athena, who is revered for her wisdom and courage. This copper gas lamp is available in three different sizes, catering to residential, mid-size, and estate needs. The lamp can be mounted in multiple configurations, including post, pier, wall, and hanging mounts, making it a flexible choice for different architectural styles.

We Can Make This Lamp Electric, Too. 

All of our lamps can be built with low maintenance, energy-efficient LEDs. This beautiful copper gas lamp can be illuminated by two LED light bulbs configured with an Electric Dual Inverted Candelabra Base. Photocell upgrade options are even available if you want to customize this lamp to meet your needs.

Save Money on Reduced Energy. 

These LED light fixtures each produce 450 lumens of Warm White light. That usually requires the equivalent of a 40W light bulb, but these LED lights each only consume 4.5W of power, saving you money and time on maintenance costs every day you have this fixture installed.

Solid Quality that is Built to Last. 

Our fixtures have been handmade in Pittsburgh, PA for over 60 years. They are built to last with high quality American metal and a great mix of decorative and functional features. All cast metal frames come with a lifetime warranty.

Easy to Install. 

Each copper gas lamp fixture comes with hardware recommendations based on the material you are mounting it on. We also provide fully illustrated instructions that should make it easy to install by your local plumber or certified gas specialist.
