The Firework Factory, with stores in Reading and Slough, is well positioned to supply Bracknell with quality cheap fireworks. We have also put on a number of displays in the area which have gone down a treat. As seasoned firework suppliers, we’re well aware of the importance of making sure our displays are not only visually spectacular, but safe.
Sparklers can be great fun for all the family and are very cheap fireworks. Our firework shops usually stock a variety of brands and types which range in size and colour. But they should always be treated with respect, as they burn hot and can cause injury if abused.
If you’re money conscious, use sparklers to compliment other cheap fireworks like small rockets and Catherine wheels for an affordable, interactive display. If you’re wondering which to purchase, our firework suppliers will be happy to give you advice as they have for countless other Bracknell based customers.
Below we’ve provided some advice on how to ensure you and your children are safe when using sparklers.
Simple but effective advice. Wearing gloves reduces the risk of burning your hands when using a sparkler. Children should always be wearing gloves when handling a sparkler. Adults, if you choose not to, then don’t let the sparkler burn all the way down. This could lead to you burning your hand, which is not fun for anyone!
No matter how mature a child is, they should always be supervised when handling sparklers. They are far hotter than many people realise and can cause injury even when extinguished if mishandled. So don’t let little ones out of your sight and lead by example.
Children should be taught to respect fireworks from an early age so they don’t mishandle them as they grow older. But under five years old is too young. Never give a sparkler to a child under five.
We know it can be tempting to light multiple sparklers at once, but it’s never a great idea. Lighting them together could cause a flare up, which can burn whoever is holding them. All good firework shops advise sparkler users to pace themselves and not get carried away when lighting them.
Many accidents our firework suppliers hear about are due to the combination of alcohol and sparklers. So if you’re in Bracknell and hosting a night involving fireworks, don’t let heavily intoxicated people near sparklers!
Have a bucket of water or sand at hand for when a sparkler has burned down. They can remain very hot even after they’ve gone out, so should not be thrown in the bin or touched with the bare hand. This is irresponsible and could cause a fire or burn injuries.
Stray sparks can ignite fireworks before they’re due to go off, so make sure you keep them separate from each other. Our firework suppliers recommend using sparklers as a warm up to the main event, or a wind down after it.
Some specialist sparklers are designed for indoor use but the vast majority are not. Using sparklers inside can be disastrous and cause damage to your home and belongings, so keep them outside.
