Fireworks Mortars

Fireworks mortars are modeled after the same idea used in weapons fired off in combat.  Many wars and conflicts of the past and current day use artillery shells that are detonated against the enemy. The idea for fireworks mortars is the same; however, the end result is not one of destruction, it’s one of delight.  This type of firework is a popular choice for both professional and backyard displays during Independence Day, the 4th of July and other significant occasions.

Basically, fireworks mortars are sent up into the air at a slight angle, being shot from a special tube that remains on the ground. This mortar tube is packed with a cocktail of pyrotechnic chemicals that explode thanks to a burst charge and internal fuse. Once the fuse reached the cartridge, it is sent high up into the air where it explodes into a display of dazzling colors, sounds and effects.  Fireworks mortars capture the projectile element of the wartime weaponry without detonating any ill will. The point of fireworks mortars is not fighting – it’s just plain fun!

If you like variety, you’ve picked the right medium with fireworks mortars. This type of firework can fit every situation and circumstance from a backyard birthday party to a show-stopping rock concert. You can buy a fireworks mortars in various and assorted effects including single, double and triple breaks that will explode into a unique display. Or, you can choose to pick your fireworks mortars out individually to assemble a one-of-a-kind show that meets your exact specifications. Put the “aahhhh” in amazing with many sizes, colors and effects found in fireworks mortars.

The tubes that the gunpowder and other chemicals are loaded in come in two formats -single use or reloadable. Single use tubes are pre-loaded with the pyrotechnic powders and are not safe to use time and time again. However, reloadable tubes are made of more durable materials and can be refilled, according to the firework makers instructions, with extra firework cartridges. Depending on the type of fireworks mortars you are purchasing, tubes are crafted from cardboard, fiberglass or high density poly-ethylene.

When igniting your fireworks mortars and other pyrotechnic items, always obey the laws about setting off fireworks in your jurisdiction. These rules are made to maintain your safety as well as the safety of others. Also, follow the manufacturer’s directions found on the label before lighting your fireworks mortars.
