Firework Effects

Fireworks take many forms to produce the four primary effects - noise, light, smoke and floating materials (confetti for example). They may be designed to burn with flames and sparks of many colours (typically red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and silver). Generally, the cost of fireworks varies based on the colours added within the display. Blue for example, is more costly that yellow, as the chemicals used to generate that specific colour cost more than those used to display yellow within a firework device

Fireworks are generally classified as to where they perform - ground level fireworks or aerial fireworks. In the latter case they may provide their own propulsion (skyrocket) or be shot into the air by a mortar (aerial shell). The skyrocket is the most common form of firework which is simply the shell attached to a stick. The aerial shell is the backbone of today's commercial aerial display. A smaller version for the consumer use is known as a Single Ignition Display Unit in the United Kingdom and as a Festival Ball in the United States. Ground level fireworks, although less popular than aerial ones, create a stunning display. These types of fireworks can produce various shapes, such as simple rotating circles, stars and fountain showers. Aerial fireworks on the other hand are the most common feature of fireworks. Whether constructed from paper or pasteboard tubes, a number of these tubes or cases are often combined so as to make, when ignited, a great variety of sparkling shapes and colours.

There are a vast number of different effects in our fireworks range. Below is a graphical representation of the type of effects available in today's pyrotechnic industry, which should hopefully assist you in creating the perfect fireworks display.

Aerial Barrage Brocada Cake

Aerial displays are created by rockets, shot cakes or single ignition fireworks. The fireworks shoot into the air at a minimum height on average of 40 feet.

Barrage Packs only consist of high performing aerial fireworks producing specific effects. They can be used either on their own to provide a short spectacular display or combined with other fireworks, such as rockets to give a mixed display.

Crackers are typically pulled at the Christmas dinner table or at parties. It takes two people to crack open by both pulling at either end. Once cracked there is a small cracking noise, the person with the larger portion of cracker empties the contents from the tube and keeps the gift/prize.
