All racks, except the 8”, are the same 48” width so they can be easily combined in the same firing position. All racks use coated, no-rust screws. 4” and larger rack frames are also glued for added strength. Each tube is screwed to the rack frame with an additional screw.

Putting on a Professional Fireworks Show
Basic firework construction hasn't changed in hundreds of years. The launching tube works like the barrel of a gun, the fuse lights a black powder charge, launching the shell into the sky at upwards of 350 mph. That same explosion lights a timed fuse, calibrated to set off another black powder charge at the right moment. That second charge ignites tiny pellets, known as stars, which includes colorfully burning chemicals that create the firework. In the last few decades there has been a rise of computer-aided shows. Computers can be used to set off displays along with soundtracks, test display patterns virtually and accurately and quickly ignite charges.
When putting on a professional fireworks show, a physical inspection of the site should always be the first step. Where will you shoot from? Up on a hill is great for allowing the fireworks to display well above the tree line. Where will the spectators watch from? Safety of the spectators is the most important consideration; be sure you have enough space between the launch zone and where they will watch from to prevent injury.
Next, consider the theme of the show - the possibilities are endless! There are many shapes, colors, and effects to choose from to match the evenings' celebration.
Every show is different, but many loosely follow a pattern. The night begins with an opening barrage and continues with series of willows, peonies and other fireworks designed to fill the sky. Through the middle of the show there is a push to put more fireworks in the air, launching five individual shells instead of one with five effects. Keeping something up in the sky to look at at all times is the key to a great, full show so you spectators aren't just waiting and staring up at a blank sky. At the end is what we all know as the grand finale, full of sound and fury and, hopefully, triggering an applause at the end.
Remember - this is a job that carries a host of safety requirements. There are separate permits required to buy the fireworks and to set them off. There is also a permit required for transporting them and liability insurance of around $5 million is needed. It takes around two years to acquire a basic Certificate of Competency. Advancing to the point of designing and performing full-scale professional fireworks shows takes decades.
