Safety

 

At Torc Candles, we have over 32 years experience in producing the highest quality candles for the Irish and UK consumer.

With the exception of nightlights, all our candles are through-coloured candles and are made using century old techniques by master chandelers in our factory.

With the large increase in candle usage over the last couple of years, it is vital that everyone burning candles in the home should follow all the safety instructions below-



Safety Guidelines 

1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

2. Burn well out of reach of children and pets.

3. Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles and have ample headroom for the heat from the flame.

4. Candles should be burned away from other sources of heat (television, fireplaces) and out of direct sunlight.

5. Place candles in an upright position on a heat resistant surface.

6. Do not place candle in a draught.

7. Trim wick to 1cm before lighting and relighting. When trimming a wick, extinuish the candle,let it cool and hold the candle upside down and trim the wick making sure that the off-cuts fall away from the candle and no residue remains in the candle.

8. Keep wax pool clear of matches and other combustible material.

9. Burn Candle no more than 4 hours at a time.

10. Do not move a burning candle.

11. Extinguish candle with a candle snuffer, do not blow them out and never use water to extinguish a candle.

12. Discontinue use when 15mm of wax remains.


For Best Burning Results - 

1. Always burn candles in suitable holders.

2. Roomscenters should be burnt for 1-2 hours at a time.

3. 3 Pillar candles should be burnt for 3-4 hours at a time.

4. Never leave a candle burning in a room unattended.

5. If you only burn the 3" pillar for a short time each evening (1-2 hours), this could cause the candle to burn down the centre and not out to the edge (we call this "tunneling") You can correct this by allowing the candle to burn for 4+ hours, this gives the candle time to burn to the edge and naturally correct itself.

6. Do not allow foreign objects, etc, to fall ino the water pool. If an enlarged or secondary flame occurs, extinguish the candle immediately.



We hope you enjoy burning our candles as much as we enjoy making them!
