Pyro Effects

Pyrotechnics add the final touch to your event. People are often confused about restricions on the use of pyrotechnics.  They are almost always allowable by licensed pyrotechnicians.

Occasionally aerial fireworks are not an option. A great alternative are “gerbs”. The “G” in gerb is soft, as in gerbil.

Gerbs are available in many colors, though the variation is subtle. You can order them in silver, gold, red, green and blue.

You can also select the height and duration of the effect: 6 feet for three seconds, 50 feet for half a second. Any combination you want is available.

Gerbs can be used safely indoors or outdoors. They create minimal smoke, and the tiny glowing particles that are emitted do not contain enough heat to be a fire hazard under most conditions. Gerbs in the hands of professional pyrotechnicians. A gerb is a 1.4g pyrotechnic device. It must be ordered, stored, handled and operated only by a licensed pyrotechnician.

Professional pyrotechnicians are licensed and insured, and will secure the necessary permits and arrangements with the local fire department.

Budget around $3500 for this stunning effect.

Special FX International can arrange this effect with 12 days notice.

If you would like to see how gerbs look at your location, we’ll come do a simple demonstration.
