FAN OF FANNED CAKES? – EPIC HAS IT COVERED!

The fanned cake is very similar to any other firework being made up from a number of tubes which essentially are numerous roman candles affixed to one another at an angle resulting in shots being fired either in sweeping or straight fans.

They can either be a full fan where each is a bank of shots that fill the air either sweeping from start to finish like the awesome Tracer Bullet to a full expanse fan like the Lightwaves Barrage.

Here are some of our top fanned cakes:

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT – £64.98 – 25 second duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This cake sweeps left to right and has a great impact as it is VERY fast firing. Multi-colored peonies throughout this definitely have to be seen first hand to fully appreciate the bright colours.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT 50 SHOT FAN BARRAGE

KING OF THE JUNGLE – £99.96 – 60 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 168 shots

An arch of colour and noise this has great ground and aerial effects that fill up the sky. A great cake with a long duration which is packed with red, green and gold with a few blue hints. A beauty which with superb timing and at a minute duration, a great standalone piece or as part of a bigger display.

SPECIAL EFFECTS – £64.98 – 40 seconds duration – 9/10 noise level – 50 shots

This z-shaped fan fires banks of 5 shots of huge red-tipped fizzing palms which hang in the air – big, bold and above all, BEAUTIFUL.

HUMMING HORNETS – £9.98 – 30 seconds duration – 6/10 noise level – 28 shots

Small in stature it may be but it more than makes up for this shortcoming by being one of the best-selling pieces in the EPIC range. With red, green yellow and blue colours, it brings a smile to everyone’s face and the fanned multiple shot finale makes it one for any occasion. Check it out and turn up the volume on this sonic cake (as I said it is not loud) and listen … I cannot see this one without smiling!

TEN FOR UNDER A TENNER EACH

TEN DIFFERENT FIREWORKS FOR UNDER TEN POUNDS EACH AT EPIC FIREWORKS

Of course, here at Epic, we have a HUGE range of fireworks of all manner of different shapes sizes and prices but here is a quick rundown of the top ten fireworks for under a tenner based on sales.

Now whilst all fireworks will have SOME sound, they do differ greatly so some of these are on the quieter side for the garden with young children whereas some are particularly loud. Each item can be viewed in action by clicking on the link below the description.

G-FORCE BARRAGE – SHOTS 28 – DURATION 30 SECS – NOISE 6/10 – COST £9.98

This was added to the Epic range last year and was an instant hit with our customers. Medium paced with great effects including tailed comets that leave a thick trail of glitter in their wake before bursting into a stunning strobing brocade.

WHISTLE POP MIX CAKE – SHOTS 27 – DURATION 23 SECS – NOISE 5/10 – COST £9.98

Another new to the range for 2018 this is a charming little firework with a great zipping sonic sound and beautiful aerial effects. Includes spinners, crackles, spinners and glittering crackles. A beautiful firework.

FANTASIA FOUNTAIN – FOUNTAIN WITH MINE BURSTS – DURATION 60 SECS – NOISE 2/10 – COST £4.92

Fountains have always been a firm family favourite, and this is no exception. This fountain has a great duration which throws a cloud of crackles skywards periodically – a must-have for any garden display.

HALO FOUNTAIN – FOUNTAIN – DURATION 50 SECS – NOISE 2/10 – COST £4.98

This low noise beauty crackles, sparks, and showers spark high into the air. Great for all due to low noise beginning with gold glitter, green falling stars and then finishing with multi-directional clouds of crackles.

Multi Effect Halo Fountain #EpicFireworks

SUNFIRE SELECTION BOX – SELECTION OF SMALLER FIREWORKS – 15 PIECES – NOISE 2/10 – COST £9.96

It contains 10 fountains, 4 roman candle shot tubes, and 1 catherine wheel.

Firstly, selection boxes are great for a small garden display due to their short safety distance and low noise products. It contains a great selection of little fountains of all colours and shot tubes with multi-effects and topping it off with a Catherine wheel (these are very good at not sticking BTW). An excellent quality product that will not break the bank.

THUNDER BLAST ROCKETS – 5 ROCKET PACK – NOISE 8/10 – COST £7.94

This pack is inexpensive and yet contains great effects so better bangs for your buck. These have a loud report (the sound made when the effects are dispersed) and include peonies, dragon eggs, large brocades, and pink and green stars. A great addition to any show whether big or small but be warned they are loud.

BLAST OFF SHOT TUBES – 8 CANDLES – NOISE 6/10 – COST £7.98

Don’t be fooled by the low price. These shot tubes are great value for money and for those who are not keen on the debris left by rockets but love the effects, they are a great alternative. Great starbursts, crackling palms, dragon eggs, and glittering stars fill the skies having all the ingredients of a big rocket with a great price tag.

SATURN FIVE ROCKETS – 5 ROCKET PACK – NOISE 8/10 – COST £9.96

Once again Epic has sourced rockets which will not break the bank with outstanding effects for our customer’s enjoyment. HUGE bursts fill the sky with colour and effects – what more could you want?

SIX FOOT SPARKLE WHEEL – CATHERINE WHEEL – DURATION 60 SECS – NOISE 3/10 – COST £9.96

A beauty of a Catherine wheel which packs in changing effects for a massive 60 seconds with lots of different coloured glitters with gold, green, blue and silver sparkles ending on a super-fast showering of sparks of all colours being emitted. Absolutely beautiful.

DR THRUST BARRAGE – SHOTS 25 – DURATION 20 SECS – NOISE 7/10 – COST £9.98

This is one exceptional little barrage and has graced the Epic range for many years. Deep red, rich blue and vivid green comets break into huge crackling stars and red comets breaking into beautiful brocades and finishing on crackling dragon egg effects to finish. A large number of our Epic DIY display packs include this cracker of a little barrage.

EPIC FIREWORKS – BONFIRE NIGHT – WHY NOT DO IT YOURSELF?

As Bonfire Night fast approaches, many are making decisions as to whether to attend a public display or indeed to have one of their own.

In the year’s gone by, we have I am sure had more than our fair share of non-descript and frankly disappointing fireworks but nowadays, you can enjoy fireworks which are highly impressive but can still be lit by Joe Public.

The DIY Firework Display packs we have available are packed with an extensive choice of barrages and rockets that are tried and tested goods all the way from China.  We spend a great deal of time over in China, ensuring that the products meet both our exacting standards and of course, they are all rigorously tested by the Health and Safety Executives both in China and over here in the UK, leaving no stone unturned.

Pack choice is really determined by several factors including:

  • BUDGET
  • WHETHER YOU WANT ROCKETS OR NOT
  • NOISE LEVEL
  • THE SPECTATORS YOU ARE EXPECTING

Whilst every effort is made to meet customer requirements, the packs cannot be interchanged with other items from the range, so if you want a particular barrage, you might be better served in choosing a less expensive pack and then adding this on as an extra.

The Big Ben pack https://epicfireworks.com/big-ben, for example, is £495.00 including Vat and free delivery to any UK mainland address and contains 19 mixed barrages and 37 rockets with a huge variety of colours and effects,  But, if for example, you wanted a couple of different ones, then you would perhaps be better with the Conspiracy Pack https://epicfireworks.com/conspiracy and add on a couple of extra pieces like the Armistice https://epicfireworks.com/armistice-100-shot which is mainly red in colour or the beautiful Ice Warrior https://epicfireworks.com/ice-warrior-49-shot which is dominantly blue and silver with huge palm effects.

In addition to the display packs (which all come with the safety information, set up plan, safety goggles, and safety lighters) we have a comprehensive number of ‘collection only’ garden display packs which we believe will suit every pocket.  Starting from just £24.95 for the fabulous Plot Night pack to the spectacular Guido’s Party Pack at £99.95.  PLEASE NOTE THAT COLLECTION ONLY PACKS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY AND CAN ONLY BE PICKED UP FROM OUR HEAD OFFICE IN SOUTH YORKSHIRE.

If you are unsure, give us a ring and one of our technicians will be happy to chat with you and see what we can do to help.
