Always remember to follow the directions included with your fireworks purchases! Our advice is only offered to build upon the directions included with your fireworks.
Ensure you remove all packaging fixed to the fireworks; this is usually clearly labelled but ensure you take extra care when doing so as to not remove anything you shouldn’t.
A common method of securing a Shot Cake or Barrage Firework is via spikes. These can be used either on the front or the sides depending on where you are firing from. We also recommend securing your firework to the spikes to avoid any movement or toppling, using strong tape such as duct tape. If you are setting up in wet conditions, it is advised to place your Shot Cake or Barrage Firework onto a wooden board to avoid any movement if spikes are not being used.
We recommend a distance of AT LEAST 8 meters from the Firework and the viewing area for Small Shot Cake Fireworks. As we are a reputable supplier of fireworks, the safety of our customers has been and always will be our number 1 priority. We want to ensure that all of our customers not only enjoy the spectacle but are kept safe whilst doing so. For further important Firework Safety Information please visit our Fireworks Safety Page.
