What Are Firework Barrages and Cakes?

Cakes / barrages are actually the same thing, it’s just a personal preference on what you call them. They consist of multiple tubes (each one with an effect), all connected by a fuse. As the fuse travels through the bottom of a tube it ignites the lift charge which in turn ignites a delay fuse in the bombette (the bit that explodes in the sky) and at the same time the gases created by the ignition of the lift charge need to escape. The only way for them to do this is to push the bombette out of the tube, thus launching it in to the sky. Whilst the bombette is travelling upwards you sometimes see a coloured star or a gold / silver tail. This is a slurry of black powder on the bombette that’s burning as it travels through the air that gives this effect. All the time the bombette is travelling through the air the time fuse is burning, when it reaches the burst charge in the centre, usually corresponding with when the bombette reaches it apex, it ignites the burst charge and the stars (effects) at the same time. Again the build up of gasses in the bombette forces it to explode producing the effect we see in the sky. That’s the basics anyway. If you’d like to know more, you just have to ask.

 

When To Use Barrages and Cakes

You can create the most fantastic fireworks display with just a few barrages / cakes. They work well fired on their own or even in multiples. Smaller barrages fired in pairs 8-10 metres apart can give the effect of a much larger firework.

Specialists For All Fireworks

If you need any help deciding on what the right fireworks might be for you, then don’t hesitate to call or email us, and we’ll be sure to try provide you with all the information you need for a safe and impressive firework display Our Favourite Cakes & Barrages

These multi-shot fireworks come in so many different and wonderful shapes and sizes and it really is a personal preference as to what you like and it’s why we provide videos of all of our fireworks so you can get an idea of what it does. One thing I will say is that a video never does a fireworks justice. It’s never as good as seeing it in the flesh. If you watch a video and think “that’s pretty good” I can guarantee that when  you see it fired it blow you away (not litterally of course!)

 

Firework Set Up

It’s important that you set up your fireworks correctly and ALWAYS read the instructions! Although cakes can all look the same they can operate in different ways.

ALWAYS ENSURE ANY FIREWORK CANNOT FALL OVER

The best way to do this is to secure your firework to a wooden stake. Bang a stake in the ground and secure the firework to the stake with some strong tape such as gaffa or packing tape. Make sure the firework is behind the stake so that the stake is between the firework and the audience, this way should it come lose and fall over it can only fall sideways or backwards and not towards your crowd!

If you havn’t got any wooden stakes or you’re setting your fireworks off from a solid surface then you can secure them by placing some bricks or sand bags around the firework.

It’s also a good idea to place a piece of wood under the firework if the ground is particularly wet or uneven.

Orders & Deliveries

We’re one of the only companies able to offer Nationwide Delivery ALL YEAR ROUND. Of course, if you don’t require your fireworks immediately we’ll more than happily store them for you until nearer your display! Just pop a note in the comments field during checkout.

FAQ’s

 

How do firework cakes and barrages work?

Each tube or shot in a firework cake or barrage contains a pyrotechnic composition. When the firework is ignited, a fuse or an electric ignition system ignites each tube or shot in succession, creating a coordinated display of effects.

 

Are firework cakes and barrages safe for home use?

Firework cakes and barrages are suitable 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.

 

How do I safely light firework cakes and barrages?

To safely light these fireworks, follow these general guidelines:

  • Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Use a flat, stable surface to secure the firework.
  • Keep spectators at a safe distance, as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Use a long, extended lighter or an electric firing system to light the fuse.
  • Never hold a firework cake or barrage in your hand when lighting it.
  • Stay clear of the firework’s launch trajectory.

What should I do with unused or dud fireworks?

If a firework cake or barrage fails to ignite or is unused, do not attempt to relight it. Wait for at least 15-20 minutes, then soak it in a bucket of water to ensure it is completely deactivated. Dispose of it in accordance with local waste disposal regulations.
