There are a number of bioethanol fireplace manufacturers who have created designs that are small enough to be portable. In order to be portable the fire needs to be small with a weight that allows it to be picked up and carried. Check the manufacturer specification sheet to see what weight the product is, and make sure you will be comfortable with the weight, before buying. If the product is advertised as portable it will mean the fire can be moved to different locations both inside, and outside, to provide heat wherever it may be required. For instance a small table top bio-ethanol fire can be taken outside and used in a garden on summer evenings. In fact outdoor bio-ethanol fireplaces and outdoor gel fires are often seen outside on terraces, patios and being used as a temporary fire pit.

When buying and using a portable bio-ethanol fire or portable gel fire there needs to be careful consideration of the safety aspects of moving the fire and selecting a safe location that will not cause damage or injury. The fire must be located away from combustible materials and in a safe way that it cannot be knocked over or someone can walk into it. For this reason it is worth considering a design that includes glass screens to add protection around the flame. Read our guide to bioethanol fireplace safety for some guidelines.

Portable Bio-Ethanol Fireplace Safety
As with most bio ethanol fireplaces and gel burner fires they are relatively cheap to buy, easy to use and a quick way to introduce a little bit of secondary heat source and atmosphere to a room or outdoor living space, however there are also a number of safety issues that need to also be considered. Overall bio-ethanol fires and gel fires are considered a decorative, secondary, heat source, especially some of the smaller gel burners. However, today there are more and more larger and wider burners being sold, including large bioethanol ribbon burners, and, as with any product that has a live flame, safety needs to be observed. Bio-ethanol fires have a live flame, give off heat and are fueled by a flammable liquid. This means that great care needs to be observed for storing bioethanol fuel, handling bioethanol fuel, using a bioethanol fire and providing protection from the flame.
When the fire is portable more safety consideration need to be observed. Some key factors include positioning the fire so that all combustible materials are at a safe distance from the fire – for example curtains, carpets or cushions. Consider buying a bioethanol fire or gel burner that includes a glass screen to protect the flame from drafts and from people getting to close to the flame. When buying check to see if your chosen model includes some form of flame protection. Never move the fire while it is still lit, hot or with fuel in the chamber. Bio-ethanol fireplace fuel and gel burner fuel is highly flammable and should be handled and stored with careful consideration. First, read the manufacturers instructions that were supplied with the bio-ethanol fireplace. If you do not have this document then it is best to contact the manufacturer and ask for a copy before using the fire.
