What Are Catherine Wheels?

Catherine wheels, named after Saint Catherine of Alexandria, are fireworks which 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. The largest Catherine Wheel ever created was manufactured in Malta, measuring 32.044 metres and was lit on 18th June 2011 to celebrate “Our Lady of the Lilies”, an annual feast. Malta is home to Catherine Wheel traditions, being a popular fixture during each village “Festa”. Many communities hold competitions, where people create Catherine Wheels of various shapes and colours and the display is finalised by lighting the largest Catherine Wheel (known as The Carpet).


High-Quality Catherine Wheels

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. Catherine Wheels consist of a powder-filled tube with an extremely powerful rotating firework, which rotates at high speeds, emitting an abundance of sparks and flames. Catherine Wheels are suitable for all size displays, including garden displays, due to all spectators being able to view the still-standing firework easily.
