1.3G vs 1.4G FIREWORKS.

We have listed below some common questions with regards to 1.3g and 1.4g classifications.

What does it mean?

1.3g and 1.4g are UN hazard and storage classifications given to fireworks.

Are 1.3g Fireworks more powerful?

Many people believe that all 1.3g fireworks are more powerful than 1.4g fireworks, but this isn't always the case. Different things can determined what makes a firework 1.3g or 1.4g such as it's size, the quantity of certain chemicals and also the packaging.

In some instances 1.3g fireworks are more powerful than their 1.4g fireworks because they contain a larger quantity of flash powder. Or, for instance in the case of rockets anything that has more than 20 gramme's of powder is classified 1.3g. However, you can have poor quality 1.3g fireworks that are made with cheap components and chemicals that are no where near as good 1.4g fireworks that are made from high quality components and chemicals.

Is delivery of 1.3g a problem.

For many companies delivering 1.3g products can be an issue. As a business, when you transport more than certain quantities of 1.4g (500kg) and 1.3g (50kg) fireworks the driver needs to have a special ADR license. As you can see you need a license to transport a very small amount of 1.3g. There are other issues as well, but in short it just makes it that little bit harder. We are fortunate that both the couriers we use carry 1.3g, but due to the restrictions above we have to make special arrangements.

Why do we need to let you know if we are collecting?

Just like the transport of 1.3g the storage of 1.3g is also limited. For this reason we are not able to store 1.3g on site. So it helps us to know when you are collecting 1.3g so we can arrange for it to be here when you arrive.

Do these rules apply to me as a customer as well?

There are no rules on the transport of 1.3g for personal use, however, depending on what you are ordering you may have to adhere to certain storage rules. We will advise you of these should they apply to you when you order.
