The FEUERHAND hurricane lanterns have been produced in Germany since 1902. The unique quality and excellent finish guarantee the best quality money can buy. Due to the special developed burner element there is no flickering and sooting from the flame. There is also a special sealing inside the tank so that there is no risk of any leaks.
Only the FEUERHAND hurricane lanterns are equipped with the thermal heat resistant SUPRAX Globes which do not crack even when touched by rain or snow.
CAUTION: IF YOU BUY A CHEAP CHINESE ONE THE GLASS WILL VERY LIKELY CRACK OR SHATTER IF IT GETS WET!
CHEAP VARIANTS ALSO VERY RARELY HAVE ANY SPECIAL SEALS TO GUARD AGAINST LEAKAGE!
FEUERHAND lanterns are extremely durable and hard wearing and the fire storm lantern have been hand made in Germany over 100 years since. There have been more than 250 million copies sold and they have become an international cult product.
The superior quality comes from the sophisticated technology of continuous development and materials that come from Germany.
