Can you send shatterglass by post/carrier?
Shatterglass is a product that is designed to break and, therefore, is not ideal for shipping. However, if a customer is willing to accept responsibility for damage in transit, we will send it. Our track record is very good but we do charge a supplement on shipping that covers the cost of the extra packaging needed to double box the items. If you can collect from or shop, then that is the best option.
Why can't cobweb spray be sent economy?
Royal Mail have now imposed many restrictions on hazardous products which can be sent by post. We cannot post aerosols, flammable products, matches, smoke pellets, fireworks, pyrotechnics etc.
What voltage is required to fire pyrotechnics?
This is not a straightforward question. Most pyrotechnic articles have a recommended firing current of 1amp (note ? current not voltage) and, therefore, the voltage required will depend on the overall resistance of the firing circuit which can be calculated using ohms law (V=IR). Circuit resistances should only be measured with a blasting ohm-meter and NOT a multi-meter.
How old do I need to be to buy fireworks or pyrotechnics?
18 years old.
