There are many different types of effects available in stage pyrotechnics. Most of them are designed to simulate their larger outdoor cousins, such as airbursts (aerial shells), gerbs (fountains), and concussions (salutes). There are a multitude of possibilities so be sure to consult with one of our professionals on what effect will provide you with the best results. In general, it is important to consider these effects as an element within a larger production, rather than a standalone event.
There are many factors to consider when planning to incorporate stage pyrotechnics into your event. In most cases, careful planning is crucial to ensure success. It is best to get us involved early on in the planning process as the devices used may have a bearing on other elements within the production, such as props, set design, costumes, stage layout, and rigging. In addition, safety plans will have to be drafted for each effect utilized, and approval is required from both the facility management and the Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Hawaii Explosives & Pyrotechnics will take care of all the details for you, but it is important for us to be an integral member of your production team.
