Spec Sheet
Are gas lamps safe?

Yes! American Gas Lamp Works gas and electric lamps employ well-proven designs and technologies. Gas lighting actually pre-dates 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.

The Vulcan

We know you’ll fall in love with our Vulcan style lamp and it’s sleek straight lines, rectangular contemporary structure, and clean appearance.



The Vulcan is a gas lamp designed to illuminate outdoor spaces. The lamp features a rectangular shape, a unique departure from the traditional rounded or ornate designs commonly found in gas lamps. This rectangular form offers a modern aesthetic, making it a striking centerpiece for any exterior setting.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Vulcan provides both functional lighting and artistic flair. The clear glass panels encasing the flame ensure maximum light dispersion, brightening up patios, walkways, or gardens. The copper finish adds a touch of luxury and durability, while also naturally patina-ing over time, adding character to the lamp.

Installation options for the Vulcan are versatile. The lamp can be mounted on walls or used as a post lamp. This adaptability makes it a suitable choice for a variety of outdoor settings, from residential backyards to commercial properties. Its sturdy construction ensures longevity, making it a long-term investment in outdoor lighting.

The Vulcan not only serves as a source of light but also as a statement piece. Its rectangular shape and quality craftsmanship make it stand out. For those seeking to elevate their outdoor space with a blend of modern design and traditional utility, the Vulcan is an ideal choice.

We Can Make This Lamp Electric, Too. 

All of our lamps can be built with low maintenance, energy-efficient LEDs. This beautiful 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 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.
