You are not alone. Be rest assured though there are safe ways to enjoy candles and enclose candle flames with accessories.
There are so many beautiful candle accessories which house candles, flame and all. Some are tall cylinders, others are fully enclosed lanterns.
The decorative nature of accessories can create a beautiful feature piece when decorating and ensure candles can be burned safely.
It is possible to find accessories – not specifically designed for candles which can add to the danger. To reduce the danger posed by accessories always look for quality tested, candle accessories.
Quality Candle Accessories
It is important to check that candle accessories are:
- Shock proof and tested to withstand the extremes of temperature that come with burning candles
- Touch safe – ie they have been tested to ensure the surface temperature makes them safe to the touch even when holding a lit candle
- Stable to be safe from rolling, falling or tipping when holding lit candles
Partylite candle accessories are tested and quality assured for these things. Not having children around I didn’t think about them until I became Candle Man Nick but as Sam Kekovich says “You Know It Makes Sense”.
It does make sense to be concerned about naked candle flames especially in families with children. It makes sense to want candle accessories to enclose the naked flame. It makes sense to make sure that accessories are safely stable and are tested to be safe to the touch even when holding a lit candle.
