We Take Safety Very Seriously

The emphasis of our production for the cardboard firework tubes industry has always been on quality and safety. Each tube to be used for pyrotechnics is specially made for this purpose. While the nature of the use of these mortar tubes prevents us from guaranteeing their lifespan, an independent test proved that our mortar tubes surpassed the firing performance anticipated BS 7114.

There is a perception that cardboard firework tubes can be of a low-quality and become unusable after just one firework shell has been shot. However, we are the UK’s only manufacturer of mortar tubes that can be reused. Also, an independent test proved that our tubes surpassed the performance levels that even we didn’t expect!

We do not compromise on safety which is why all of our cardboard mortar tubes have developed in conjunction with the British Standard for Fireworks (BS 7114). This standard means that our mortar tube range is compatible with category one (indoor), two (garden), three (display) and four (professional) firework shells.

About Our Cardboard Mortar Tubes

What are mortar tubes for?

Mortar tubes are cylindrical containers that are specifically designed to safely launch fireworks, flares, or other pyrotechnic devices into the air. These tubes are often used in fireworks displays, military operations, or for recreational purposes such as celebrations and events.

They come in various sizes to accommodate different types and sizes of fireworks, providing stability and containment for the explosive charges during launch. They are an essential component for safely and effectively launching aerial pyrotechnic displays.

How durable are they?

Our specialised cardboard mortar tubes are crafted from high-quality, reinforced cardboard that is engineered to withstand the pressures and forces generated during fireworks launches.

While cardboard may seem unconventional, our tubes are designed with strength and stability in mind, ensuring they can safely contain and launch fireworks without compromising safety. Additionally, our rigorous quality control measures ensure that each mortar tube meets industry standards for durability and performance, providing peace of mind for all your fireworks displays.

What safety measures should I follow when using cardboard mortar tubes?

When using cardboard mortar tubes for fireworks displays, it’s crucial to prioritise safety. Start by ensuring the tube is placed on stable ground and securely anchored to prevent tipping. Before each use, inspect the tube for damage, and follow manufacturer instructions for loading and launching fireworks.

Maintain a safe distance during loading and launching, wearing appropriate personal protective equipment. By adhering to these safety measures, you can enjoy fireworks displays using cardboard mortar tubes safely and responsibly.
