What are Multi Shot Aerial Fireworks?

A multi-shot aerial firework is going to be capable of putting on an amazing display, and all from a firework that comes with a single ignition via its fuse. These fireworks are known more for the display that they put on rather than their name, so if you have ever witnessed a firework that produces multiple star displays, then that’s a multi-shot aerial.

The Basics of a Multi Shot Aerial Firework

With this firework, you are going to have a single fuse that’s lit before the firework goes off up into the air, and it puts on its display. You should know that you will be able to buy these in different sizes from 200g to 500g, and clearly the bigger one puts on the bigger display.

Due to the nature of this firework, it should be placed on either a concrete base, or asphalt. That’s because you need it to be steady and secure before lighting. This firework has a real punch to it, so you don’t want it to be on flimsy ground. Also, use a brick to anchor things down and brace the firework.

How They Work

Inside the box, there will be a series of tubes. These tubes are going to be lit in sequence, but the design of the firework means you only have to light the initial fuse, and then allow the firework to do the rest.

Each tube will then send a single shot up into the air, and they will all go off at different times with this, once again, being due to the timing of the fuse.

Once lit, they are going to reach various heights and put on a pretty spectacular display. We are talking about different colors, sizes, and overall it’s going to have the real wow factor that you are probably looking for in your display.

The Difference in Size

While the 200g version can put on an amazing display, the 500g version can really blow your mind. It’s not uncommon for a 500g version to put on a display that lasts up to two minutes, and that will certainly wow your audience.

You will often find that the box is going to tell you how many shots the firework contains, and also how long it’s going to go on for. Once again, do remember you only have to light the single ignition for everything to be kickstarted.

Safety and Security

We will look at how you dispose of the spent fireworks shortly, but what happens if you have a dud?

In this instance, things can be harder when dealing with a dud. That’s because out of a box that contains multiple shots, you may have only one tube that failed to go off.

However, you need to treat this like any other dud firework. That means you leave it alone for some time to make sure that there’s no slow burner that then catches you out later. Please never lean over it to see what is going on. That’s how accidents happen, and you need to avoid doing this.

Once you are sure that this is not the case, you then need to soak the firework in water. The best way is to leave it in a bucket of water overnight as this will make sure that it is rendered completely useless.

After this has been done, you can then add it to your normal trash as there will be no danger whatsoever.

Multi-shot aerials are one of the more spectacular fireworks you can launch. However, great care needs to be taken to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. At that point, you can just sit back and watch the show.
