Types of Close Proximity Pyrotechnics

The difference between outdoor fireworks and close proximity pyrotechnics is the way they are designed and made. These types of pyrotechnics are manufactured to more stringent standards to ensure extremely accurate and consistent results for height and intensity. These devices offer non-toxic, nearly odorless and very little smoke. The effects are precise and predictable and have little to no “fall-out” (paper or other debris) where they are discharged.


Gerbs are pyrotechnic fountains that can have durations from one-second to thirty seconds. They can be various heights from 2 ft to 20 ft. They come in many colors including gold, silver, red, green, blue, yellow and orange.

Couples have used gerbs to highlight their wedding ceremony or while entering the reception hall as newlyweds. Gerbs can highlight the end of a sales meeting or while celebrating a toast for an important dinner.


Pyrotechnic Waterfall

Pyrotechnic Waterfall

These devices use gerbs (fountains) turned upside down to create a pyrotechnic wall of falling stars simulating a waterfall. Typically these are done in gold or silver, but waterfalls can be created in other colors. Amaze the guests at a wedding reception while dancing the “first dance” with a backdrop of a pyrotechnic waterfall. Many concerts use a waterfall to highlight the climatic end to a song or set.

Flame Effects

Pyrotechnic or Propane flame projectors give an added dimension to your display or special event. We can produce columns of clean-burning, smokeless flames as well as large puffs of fireballs reaching 20 ft to 30 ft in the air. These flame units are ideal for team introductions, to start the big race, or to highlight a musical performance.

Mines/Comets/Aerial Effects

To add color and height dynamics to indoor pyrotechnic display or effects, mines and comets can be designed to fire to heights from 3 ft to 300 ft. These devices offer various colors, sounds, and effects to and can be combined to create a spectacular indoor display with various designs.
