These barrages tend to be medium size, have more powder weight, and usually have more shots ranging from approximately 16 - 100 per barrage. In this section, you will find more variety of firing patterns than the smaller barrages and cakes. There is a good mix of small bore and large bore fireworks, giving some more variety at a very reasonable price.
WE ONLY SELL THE BEST BARRAGE FIREWORKS
Here at the Fireworks Shop, we aim to please and we make a point of only stocking the best fireworks; after all, we think that loyalty goes a long way these days. We have gained a good reputation over the years for providing quality and are always testing fireworks to ensure they are efficient and of high performance.
WHAT ARE FIREWORK BARRAGES
Firework barrages are in effect a fireworks display in a box. You only need to light one fuse to provide a continual and constant flurry of firework effects. They can be low, medium or high noise. The larger barrages tend to build up to a large finale of multiple shots in varied colors and effects. Barrages are also referred to as Cakes or Single Ignition Fireworks. They can be used in all types of displays - your own garden display or an organised venue display. Each barrage specifies the required safety distance.
COLLECTING THE BARRAGE FIREWORKS
As you probably know, we deliver fireworks locally and nationally across mainland UK, but you can also collect at your convenience from our shop situated in Bamber Bridge, Preston. You can either place your order online and collect, or simply call in and choose your fireworks.
All our fireworks are CE compliant. Fireworks are categorised F1, F2, F3, or F4 and this is clearly indicated on each product.
F1 fireworks are low hazard and can be used in confined spaces, including indoor domestic premises. Some examples of F1 fireworks are ice/cake fountains, some sparklers, party fun snaps, and party poppers.
F2 fireworks contain a powder weight of 500g or less. However, there is an exception to this in the form of F2 compound fireworks, where each barrage has a powder weight of 500g or less, but when fused together gives a higher overall powder weight. The minimum safety distance of F2 fireworks ranges from 8 - 20 metres. The required distance is clearly indicated on each product label.
F3 fireworks contain a powder weight from 501g to 1000g. Again, an exception to this is in the case of F3 compound fireworks, whereby each barrage is between 501g - 1000g but fused together giving an overall higher powder weight. The minimum safety distance for F3 fireworks is 25 metres.
F4 fireworks are not available to the general public. They are for professional displays and only for use by persons with specialist knowledge.
AGE LIMIT FOR PURCHASING FIREWORKS
The age limit is 18+ for buying fireworks. We also require a person of 18+ to take receipt and sign for online firework orders.
