Smoke effects can come in a variety of colours and after ignited may burn for anywhere from 4 to 20 seconds.

Why consider coloured pyrotechnic smoke displays?

Coloured smoke effects can be a great addition to your event. Traditionally they have been used by everyone from hobby enthusiasts to special effects in high budget Hollywood movies.

Sporting Events

Do you have a cup final that you want to be memorable for years? You can have your teams run out onto a field and feel like superstars as smoke effects are shot up alongside them. You can even choreograph the smoke to have the same colour as the team’s jerseys for a nice added touch.

Music Events

For decades your favourite bands have been using smoke effects to enhance their performances. From Kiss to Jimmy Hendrix to Michael Jackson, all the greatest concerts were choreographed with ever improving displays to compliment the show.

Air shows

If you want a memorable air show, coloured smoke pyrotechnics are a must. Whether you’re a hobbyist or a military professional you can enjoy the scene as planes propel coloured smoke across the sky.


A significant benefit of smoke effects as opposed to other pyrotechnics is their safety. They can fortunately be detonated electrically which means, unlike fireworks, you don’t run the risk of personal contact with the explosives.

However, understand that coloured smoke can be corrosive which may harm sensitive equipment such as electronics. It can also stain fabrics and should be kept away from the eyes at all times. Safety should be of primary importance at all times, ensure you have all the necessary firefighting equipment in case of an emergency, as well as any other safety equipment. Having the right people handle your pyrotechnics is vital. Hire a professional crew to handle the display and be aware of all established parameters.
