The Using Fireworks Section

Advice on all aspects of using fireworks from setting them up to letting them off.


How to use this section

Hover your mouse over the “Using Fireworks>” menu option above. This will create a drop down list showing all the current articles.

Starting with the basics of safe sparkler use followed by the Fireworks Code, the section moves on to a comprehensive guide on site layout.

Setting up your fireworks is broken down into each firework type: Cakes & Candles, rockets, mines & wheels, fountains & lancework with a final equipment checklist.

Now on to lighting your fireworks (the fun part!). Most people will be hand firing and that section takes a very detailed look into what to use and how to do it. Other sections include consumer firing systems and fuse and professional igniters.

No guide would be complete without a look at what can go wrong and everyone’s least favourite part of a display, clearing up.
