Design, Technology and Manufacture

Skylighter Fireworks remains at the forefront of innovation, dedicated to advancing pyrotechnic special effects and computer firing system technology. Continuously developing and procuring the latest products, we ensure each display delivers unparalleled uniqueness.

At the heart of our operations is the FireOne computer-controlled wireless firing system, renowned as the world’s premier firing system. With FireOne, our displays are meticulously choreographed to music with split-second precision, seamlessly synchronized across expansive firing locations like barges, bridges, and rooftops. Our systems also facilitate audio simulcast with television, radio stations, and professional sound broadcast systems.

Our Head Product Designer frequently travels to China to oversee the design, testing, and creation of new, spectacular special effects. Beginning with conceptual sketches, our creative process evolves through computer modelling and detailed design. Pyro-chemists then craft the pyrotechnic formulas required to bring our concepts to life.

We meticulously source the finest pyrotechnic ingredients worldwide. Refined black powder is crafted from Sulphur and Saltpetre sourced from Germany, while brilliant silver effects are produced using Titanium powders from Italy and the USA. Sulphates and nitrates sourced from various regions ensure vibrant colors, unique effects, and low smoke productions—hallmarks of our exceptional products.

The price of organising a firework display depends on several factors, including the type of fireworks used, necessary supplies, insurance coverage, labor hours for setup and programming, administrative tasks, equipment, and transportation tandfrom the venue and storage facility. Since each display is unique due to factors like date, location, and site specifics, pricing may vary. As a rough estimate, our starting price for an outdoor aerial fireworks display is approximately $2500.00. For a precise quote tailored to your specific needs, please contact us.

Outdoor fireworks displays usually require a minimum radius of 40 meters from all spectators and occupied buildings to ensure safety. Ideally, a radius of 55 meters is preferred for a broader range of fireworks effects. Additionally, we offer Close Proximity Fireworks, which can be set up as close as 5 meters from the audience.

In Queensland, displays must be completed by 9pm on Sunday through Thursday and by 10pm on Friday and Saturday.

The duration of a firework display mainly depends on your budget and desired outcome. Typically, a longer display requires a larger budget or features slower-fired effects. For our basic outdoor display, we suggest a minimum duration of 3 minutes to provide an exciting spectacle.

Close Proximity fireworks are a specialised type of pyrotechnics designed for use near performers and spectators. They work well in both indoor and outdoor settings, particularly when space is limited, providing a safe and visually stunning option for events. These are seen at concerts and major sporting events.
