Standard Fireworks Poster - Epic Fireworks

Here is a fantastic image of an old fireworks poster. This shows many classic items that some of you may remember from your childhood, such as Mine of Serpents, Snow Storm, Robot Signals (the old name for traffic lights), Jack in the Box, Guy Fawkes Barrel and many many more. You can see them in more detail by clicking the image which will take you to the Epic Fireworks Flickr pages, you can then zoom in and see them in all their glory.

Fireworks packaging has always been important and the bright colours and interesting designs are definitely part of what sells a firework. This is still true today, however with the advancement of the internet and the ability to see videos of fireworks before you buy them, the packaging and labelling have become less important and the quality of effect has taken the first place as the most important thing people look for when buying fireworks.

It’s just as well that Epic Fireworks continues to be the UK’s leading supplier of high-end pyrotechnics. We never compromise on quality and believe that every firework you buy should be the very best possible. That’s, why we have hundreds of videos of fireworks on Youtube for you to compare and our website, is always kept up to date with our latest barrages and rockets, wheels and fountains, and mines and roman candles, so you know you are buying the best.

When used as per the instructions on the packaging, fireworks are a fascinating and spectacular addition to any late evening event but this is where many of us seem to come unstuck. It is a simple equation really, the reason fireworks are loud and brash is that they are classed as explosives for good reason …. THEY EXPLODE!!

The rules are simple and have changed very little, apart from a few distance recommendations, over the years.

If you are planning on having some fireworks for your birthday, anniversary, 4th July Celebrations or for Easter, you should still be following the firework safety code. This will then ensure that your celebrations are not brought to an abrupt end by a visit to A & E.

Plan your fireworks display in advance to ensure that you have all the support that you need to ensure that everything runs according to plan. Any reputable firework retailer will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Just remember that no question is stupid and they are the experts.

Keep fireworks in a closed box (if you are using selection box fireworks for the garden) and remove each one individually.

If you are firing a consumer display pack, remember that there has to be a MINIMUM 25 METRE SAFETY DISTANCE and if you are insured and do not follow this advice, any damage caused as a result of your misuse will not be covered.

Read and follow the instructions on every firework before use. Preferably using a torch (no naked flames).

Light the firework at arm’s length with a taper or a specialist lighter (port-fires are the safest device if you are not using a firing system). ALL of our consumer display packs come with these and safety goggles.

Keep naked flames away from fireworks – that means no cigarettes!!

Never return to a firework once it has been lit.

Don’t put fireworks in your pockets and never throw them – there is a fine of up to £5000, possible imprisonment for three months or an on the spot fine of £80.00

Make sure that the expected flight path of a rocket is clear and away from the crowd/spectators.

NEVER USE PARAFFIN OR PETROL ON A BONFIRE – you will suddenly find yourself with an uncontrollable fire and moreover, the smell and choking fumes would make it really uncomfortable for your family and friends too.

Ensure that any fire, fireworks or sparklers are thoroughly extinguished before leaving.
