A Wide Range of Fireworks for Sale in Reading and Slough | Fountains and Sparklers

A successful fireworks display combines an array of dazzling effects.

With an extensive range of premium and cheap fireworks for sale, you can find the perfect fountains and sparklers for your specific needs. Neither of these fireworks bang, so they’re ideal as ground-level features for large events, but also for quiet, small-scale, out-of-season displays.

Operating out of two firework shops in Reading and Slough, The Firework Factory welcomes customers from Bracknell, Maidenhead, Wokingham and across Berkshire. With such a wide range of products to choose from, as well as our team’s decades of experience, we’re also the go-to firework suppliers for people in Hampshire, Oxfordshire and West London.

Your Guide to Fountains

What are Fountains?

Conical or cylindrical in shape, fountains typically have 3 main components: the base, fuse and nozzle. You must position your firework with the base on the ground and the nozzle pointing skyward. Most fountain fuses are toward the nozzle. After lighting the fuse, the effects then emit from the nozzle, shooting vertically into the air.

Generally speaking, fountains produce showers of sparks which rise upward before cascading down in a beautiful, serene display.

Conical fountains tend to deliver the same continuous effect for their duration. These are usually gold, silver or crackling in nature. Some of the fountains for sale in our firework shops also contain flecks of colour. While they all vary, the effects for these fountains almost always start low and build up to full height by the finale.

Cylindrical options are batteries of numerous different fountains fused to fire one after the other. As such, the displays produced involve changing effects as the display progresses through each tube, finishing with a plume of intense crackles.

Please contact us if you have a query about fountains or any of our other cheap fireworks. We are customer-focused firework suppliers, so we’re happy to provide advice, guidance and peace of mind.

Why Choose Fountains?

Fountains have impressive versatility, making them a worthy addition to all kinds of events, be it Bonfire Night displays, birthday parties, weddings or any other special occasion, large or small.

If you’re planning a low-key display in your back garden, you may want to keep noise to a minimum. You can rest assured, fountains deliver a dazzling spectacle but without any booms and bangs. However, some options do crackle.

Is your display much bigger in scale? Then these cheap fireworks are a crucial element for an exciting show. The fountains in our Reading and Slough firework shops provide contrast and suspense for otherwise loud displays.

What’s more, if you have various aerial fireworks, well-timed fountains add a much-needed spark on the ground. With your audience distracted and still entertained, you have the necessary time to prepare subsequent launches.

Your Guide to Sparklers

What are Sparklers?

The body of these fireworks consists of a thin, non-combustible metallic wire coated in a slow-burning pyrotechnic composition. The latter is usually a smoke or flash powder made from a metal fuel, oxidizer and binder. You ignite the end of this composition and watch on as it emits glistening sparks, in much the same way as a magic wand.

As the only firework you can hold in your hand, sparklers are a great way of adding audience involvement at any event. Especially popular with children, sparklers are a key ingredient in all manner of occasions.

Like all reputable firework suppliers, we strongly advise adult supervision when children use sparklers. They are not suitable for children under the age of 5.

Why Choose Sparklers?

The main appeal of these cheap fireworks is their ability to make individuals feel part of your display. This is why they are one of the most popular fireworks for sale at both our shops. In addition, they’re simple, minimal and cost-effective.

You can optimise the benefits of sparklers by using them at the right time. Handing them out before the main display is a great way to enhance excitement before the big event. And when it finishes, sparklers make the ideal wind down.

The Firework Factory sells sparklers in an array of colours and sizes. This ensures they fit seamlessly into events with specific requirements or design schemes.

The colour variations lay in the type of oxidizer used during manufacture. For example, sparklers with red sparks use strontium, green sparks come from potassium chlorate while purple sparklers have potassium nitrate.

Guidance for Safe Sparkler Use?

For maximum enjoyment, it’s vital to use sparklers safely. When visiting our firework shops in Reading and Slough, our experienced staff provide safety recommendations for individual products. However, we have listed below some of the basic aspects of safe sparkler use.

  • Only ever light one sparkler at a time

  • Wear gloves when handling sparklers

  • Don’t use sparklers in crowded areas

  • Always supervise children using sparklers

  • Avoid flowing or loose clothing

  • Have a bucket of water ready for used sparklers

  • Hold sparklers away from the body at arm’s length

  • Never wave sparklers near another person’s face

When disposing of finished sparklers, plunge them into the bucket of water hot end down as they remain hot for a long time.

At The Firework Factory, we pride ourselves on being Berkshire’s premier firework suppliers. Whether you need fountains in Bracknell or sparklers in Maidenhead or Wokingham, we have the perfect fireworks for sale.
