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 electric.

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.

Can open flame be used with liquid propane (LP) gas?

Open flame gas lamps cannot use liquid propane. They only work with natural gas. Natural Gas burners offer an alternative to gas mantle burners for LP gas, providing a steady, white light through mesh mantles without flickering. Think of them as similar to a Coleman camping lantern that is designed to burn continuously.

What is the difference between gas mantle and open flame gas lamps?

Gas mantle lamps are known for their bright, steady white light and come in various configurations. Open flame gas lamps offer old-fashioned ambiance a softer, flickering light that produces less illumination.

What is the difference between GasGlow®️ LED and candelabra base electric fixtures?

Our GasGlow LED combines LED technology with traditional gas burners that replicate the appearance and intensity of gas mantle lighting. Long-lasting, efficient performance can now be available to you in various socket configurations.
