Feuerhand – For shared moments surrounded by light and warmth
Feuerhand is for you and your loved ones: It is your brand for moments of conviviality, for evenings spent together around the campfire, for intimate conversations in lantern light, for seeking the enjoyment of the moment and for an atmosphere to unwind. Our products convey that extra something to your outdoor oasis, filling it with light and warmth and creating convivial and special cooking experiences. With our products, you can turn your balcony, terrace or garden into your own individual retreat, ensuring relaxation for you and your guests and forgetting about everyday life.
As a traditional German brand, Feuerhand has been bringing people together in light and flames since 1893. From the very beginning, the idea of an independent, robust and long-lasting light source struck a chord with the spirit of the times. The Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern became an indispensable part of life. It spreads its reliable light in both private and public areas without electricity and in its early days was even firmly incorporated into people's everyday lives as construction site or bicycle lighting.
Even today, the Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern of the Baby Special 276 series is manufactured in Germany almost identical in construction. Over 125 years of experience show us that we need products that stand the test of time. Due to the durability of the Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern and its well-thought-out operating principle, it still corresponds to the current zeitgeist. Today, our Hurricane Lantern spreads its unique, bright light in the gardens and on the terraces and balconies of fans of timeless, reliable exterior lighting.
Motivated by our sense of tradition and innovation, we value the things that stand the test of time, while constantly developing new ideas to adapt classic products to modern demands. Even though much has changed since 1893, one aspect remained the same: The awareness that shared moments with our loved ones – that make us forget everyday life – are most precious. Our timeless, functional products allow you to celebrate the small but special moments in your life and turn them into cherished memories.
In addition to the long-lasting light of the Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern, you may also lose yourself in the impressive flames of the advanced Tyropit Fire Bowl or the Pyron Fire Barrel without disturbing smoke. With the Feuerhand Pyron Plate, you can treat yourself and your loved ones to culinary specialities and add even more enjoyment to your evenings of conviviality.
Feuerhand – A quality brand with long tradition
The origins of the Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern lie in a small plumber's workshop, where in the 1870s Herrmann Nier built lanterns among other things. During industrialisation large factories replaced small manufactories. As a result, in 1893, Herrmann Nier together with his brother Ernst Nierdecided to establish a production facility for Hurricane Lanterns.
Five years later, the production facility was bought by Frankonia, Albert Frank Metallwaren. Under the management of the Nier brothers it continued to operate until Hermann Nier went into business himself in 1902 with his own Hurricane Lantern factory, "Hermann Nier Feuerhandwerk". In that year he registered for the first imperial patent for the production of lanterns by means of folding and punching as well as a soldering bath, which replaced hand soldering. In 1914 the trademark "Feuerhand" was registered as a German Reich utility model (DRGM) for all products. In 1920 the round Feuerhand logo was added to the brand.
In 1933 the first Feuerhand lantern of the Baby Special series saw the light of day. The lanterns of the time were equipped with fireproof borosilicate glass from the Schott company in Jena. Since 1989, the Baby Special 276 has been produced as the only model of the cold blast lantern.
Feuerhand has been part of the Petromax Group since autumn 2014. Since then, the Feuerhand Baby Special 276 has been available in many colours that can be integrated into your individual garden, balcony and terrace design. Today, the Baby Special 276 is still manufactured almost identically at the German site in Schleswig-Holstein and fitted with Schott's shatterproof and fireproof glass. The Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern is still made in Germany.
The German tradition, that started in 1893 with the production of lanterns for everyday use and as construction site lighting due to a lack of electricity, today offers you fashionable and timeless products for your private oasis. Feuerhand combines sustainable quality work with modern demands and, today, as in the past, leads people to a place of relaxation with fire, light and the pleasure of grilling.
