It seems the wedding season has well and truly begun. With more and more customers wanting a fitting end to what may be one of the most memorable days of your /their life, we here at epic have been inundated with orders over the last few days.
With prices falling over the last few years, it is now possible to get a professional quality display you fire yourself, starting from as little as £295.00. Our wedding packs are delivered free of charge (if ordered 7-10 days before the event) include setup plan, firing order, and all the safety equipment required.
When you consider the costs involved in arranging a wedding, £295.00 is a small price to pay for a memorable show, the average price of a wedding cake is over £300.
Yesterday a customer who had travelled from Burnley to pick up a surprise package for his brother’s wedding (and getting £120.00 worth of free rockets for the show by choosing the collection option) at the weekend asked about any special precautions he needed to take in this unusually hot weather.
Although the bulk of our stock is classed as 1.3G with some items being in the lower explosive class of 1.4G (what’s the difference between 1.4g and 1.3g…find out here) the storage recommendations remain the same even when temperature is topping a whopping 31 degrees in some parts of the country.
1. Keep the fireworks in the cartons we supply them in.
The majority of fireworks you will receive will be in a “UN” carton. These have been tested for safety and durability, made of heavy-duty multi-layered card, these cartons will prevent the fireworks being accidentally damaged during transit.
2. A cool dry place away from children and pets: garage, garden shed, cellar etc. away from any other chemicals, petrol, or any other combustibles.
As most of our regular customers who visit us are aware, our fireworks are usually stored in wood lined, forty-foot steel containers as you can imagine it’s a little warm in there at the moment, but as the “Visco” fuse needs a naked flame or spark to ignite it we have no concerns even with 30 tons of gunpowder on site, heat alone won’t ignite these products.
3. Always read the instructions: some fireworks may have differences in the instructions to take a few minutes to read them.
The important part that makes the fireworks, the powder, is encased in a tube which is then sealed with card plugs to prevent leakage, making the fireworks perfectly safe, although where possible we do recommend locking them away if possible away from children and prying eyes.
And finally: 4. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE FIREWORK CODE.
As always, our team of specialists will be happy to answer any questions anyone may have seven days a week.
So, if we can help in planning the perfect ending to your perfect summer wedding, give us a call or drop us an email with your contact details and we will get back to you.
