What Are Catherine Wheels?


Catherine wheels, named after Saint Catherine of Alexandria, are fireworks that consist of either a powder-filled spiral tube or an angled rocket with a pin in its centre. When set alight, the force of the fireworks causes the wheel to rotate to display much more spectacular arrays of lights.


Many communities hold competitions, where people create Catherine Wheel Fireworks of various shapes and colours and the display is finalised by lighting the largest one (known as The Carpet).


Where To Use Catherine Wheel Fireworks


They are suitable for all size displays, including garden displays, due to all spectators being able to view the still-standing firework easily.


To ensure your Catherine Wheels are always working efficiently, do not bang the nail in too tight and ensure that the pin is at a slight downward angle. If your wheel is pointing upwards, it will get stuck against your post.

How does a Catherine wheel work?

A Catherine wheel typically has a central hub that contains pyrotechnic compositions. When the wheel is lit, a fuse ignites the compositions, causing them to burn and produce thrust. The resulting thrust causes the wheel to rotate rapidly, creating the spinning effect.


What types of effects can a Catherine wheel produce?

The primary effect of a Catherine wheel is the spinning motion, which emits sparks and colored flames. The color and pattern of the sparks can vary depending on the specific design of the Catherine wheel.


Are Catherine wheels safe for home use?

Catherine wheels are generally considered safe for consumer use when handled responsibly and in accordance with safety guidelines. However, it’s crucial to follow local laws and regulations regarding fireworks use and prioritize safety at all times.
