Also, they've seen sense and given the smaller items a more sensible Cat2 5m garden firework rating-when the ESCO range was reintroduced they give EVERYTHING a stupid Cat3 display firework 25metre rating EVEN if it is miniscule-hopefully the new European Standard (which will wipe out BS7114 part 2 1988 forever in 2017) will remove the silly anomaly of putting a 25metre safety distance on all small items as it is doing now. ;)

I am looking forward to the new CE fireworks, but it is a shame to be removing the British Standard.

It's not a legal requirement to stand 25m away ;)

Sorry to go off tangent but WHY would you put a 25m label on a 4" cone fountain with just a 3inch flame on it or a one foot shower of sparks or both? This is where the British Standard 7114 falls down on sensibility grounds. Just because a small firework falls JUST outside a very limited specified distance due to sparks fallout debris etc and it doesn't do very much in effects/height doesn't mean it is good on an open field at 25metres away.

I agree anthony, we have the panther box this year and we were very surprised to see that the 12 shot twitter glitter cake had a 5m safety distance, but a inch tall fountain was 25m, it was ridiculous. That is the only problem with bs really.

Not forgetting the customary ESCO instruction sheet you get in every ESCO box, and a good idea it is too:)

Always nice to have a read of :)

I got the Boogie box, looked quite "cute" shall we say for a fiver.
ESCO Boogie box looks good BUT are the fireworks as good as the price and the name though? The proof of the pyropudding is in the eating...and that tells all;)
