Enjoy Entertaining Outdoors For Longer

Stay warm long after the Sun sets with a Masport patio heater

Auckland, 21 October 2004: Outdoor living solutions leader Masport Limited have met the rapidly growing demand for outdoor entertaining products with the launch of the Ultimate Patio Heater range. Three stylish models offer the latest in innovative features to ensure there’s a design to suit everyone’s taste and budget.

The LPG gas bottle fuelled heaters are built for durability as well as ultimate ease of use and convenience. The top of the line model is the Supreme Stainless, offering a fully stainless steel unit and hardware components. For a stylish dark powder finish, the Deluxe Charcoal incorporates an attractive European look and feel with its rugged construction and stainless steel burner and burner cage.

Both models offer the very latest features, including easy start Piezo ignition, heavy duty base wheels for repositioning, deluxe vinyl cover, and for the ultimate in versatility, a built in hardwood table.

For the more budget conscious, the Flame Tree offers all the standard features at a super competitive price. It also features the easy start ignition and has a split centre pole designed to fit through most outdoor tables if desired. It comes with a canvas bottle cover and easy release zip for ease of use.

All three models offer variable heat control up to 12.5kw and put safety first, with a tilt switch that will automatically cut out if the heater is pushed off balance. Built to last, the heaters have a rust free alloy deflector to ensure warmth is directed where it is needed most.

“Kiwis just love to entertain, so we’re confident our new product range will prove extremely popular over the upcoming summer months,” says National Sales Manager, Steve Huddleston. “There’s nothing better than outdoor barbeque with friends, and our patio heaters will make those summer nights will last even longer – and also into the cooler months.”

With almost a century of engineering leadership behind it, Masport has established a market penetration and brand awareness of lawn and garden care products in Australasia that few others can match. They now build on this heritage with their outdoor leisure lifestyle portfolio of barbecues and patio heaters.

All Masport patio heaters are rigorously tested and comply with New Zealand and international safety standards and are available from approved Masport dealers nationwide.


Founded in 1910, Masport originally made vacuum pumps and stationary engines for the farming industry. Within 20 years it had produced the first Masport ‘Rapid’ hand mower and by 1938 had produced the country’s first powered lawnmower. Today Masport manufactures and/or distributes more than 100 lawn and garden care products including barbecues, patio heaters and wood and gas fires - some of which are exported to over 35 countries worldwide.
