If you're having your own bonfire event or fireworks display, our product listings include the important information you need not only to make your event safe and enjoyable but also to store your fireworks safely at home.
KEEPING YOU SAFE | To help you prepare a safe fireworks display and protect your spectators, we list the minimum safety distance in metres. The recommended safety distances are first and foremost there for safety but along with this we recommend these distances at a minimum to achieve the best visual of the display as well.
KEEPING YOU SAFE | To help you store our fireworks safety when buying in bulk, we list the net explosive content of each firework. You will need to know the amount of actual explosives in a firework to determine how many fireworks you can keep at home and how long for without requiring registration or a licence.
The current legal limits for storing fireworks at home are:
HELPING YOU CHOOSE | To make it easier for you to select the type of firework that you want, we rate noise levels as low, medium or loud. We even have a dedicated low noise firework category. The term Silent Fireworks is often used on social media but there is no such thing as Silent Fireworks.
HELPING YOU DECIDE | To help you gain a better idea of the burst size and effect time of a firework, we include the tube diameter size. The bigger the tube size, the bigger the burst and the bigger the effect.
HELPING YOU CREATE | To help you create a show-stopping display and allow you to buy fireworks suitable for the firing area you have, we set out the firing patterns – fanned, straight or mixed. Mix the firing patterns to fill the sky with colour and noise and keep your audience guessing what will happen next.
KEEPING YOU SAFE | To ensure your safety when bulk buying, transporting and storing our fireworks for a long time, we list the hazard class of each firework. We will advise you personally when purchasing bundles. Fireworks classed as 1.3G are considered more hazardous than 1.4G.
HELPING YOU DESIGN | To help you structure and set the pace for a dynamic fireworks display, we detail the number of shots per firework or total number shots in one of our bundles of fireworks. Please note a common misconception is the more shots the more powerful a firework is. This is not true :)
HELPING YOU PLAN | To help you plan the running time of your display, we include the manufacturer’s listed firework duration in seconds. All listed durations are approx. The information is taken from the manufacturers and Chorlton Fireworks holds no responsibility for for products that over run or are slightly shorter in duration.
