Sparkler Fountains…..are they safe?


Sparkler Fountains are in high demand by clients and are one of the most exciting additions the events industry has seen for quite some time. The big question we get asked all the time from our clients and venue operators is….are they safe? The short answer is YES, very SAFE!

Cold Sparks are 100% safe to use Indoors or Outdoors and perfect for Weddings, Birthdays, Product Reveals, Conferences, Conventions, Fashion Parades and Stage Performances. Venues across Australia are loving them, as they are fully complaint with safe work methods and have been recognised by Worksafe as a non pyrotechnic, therefore no permits required. Middleton Events can provide your venue with Risk Assessment and a Material Safety Data Sheet if required.

Imagine a spectacular fountain of firework sparkles to highlight your entry, cake cutting, first dance and or departure……a product launch, conference or stage performance. Our new Sparkler indoor fountains will provide this spectacular effect without the traditional risk of traditional pyrotechnics. Cold sparks, means no permits, no fire, no heat, no smoke and no mess.


The Sparkler system produces a dynamic, non-hazardous, effect that looks exactly like traditional fireworks or pyrotechnics.

The effect is simply created using a Sparkler machine and a granulated alloy, removing the need for gun powder or traditional pyrotechnic techniques.

The duration and height of the effect can be varied throughout a display, with sequences of ‘dancing’ sparks created to entertain audiences.

The advantages of using the system as opposed to traditional fireworks or pyrotechnics are as follows:

  • No hazardous materials to transport or store on site.
  • Much safer than using traditional pyrotechnics.
  • No large safety or exclusion zones are required as the units produce cold fallout which is perfectly safe (the audience can pass their hands through the effect without any concern).
  • Can be used in locations where fireworks and pyrotechnics are not permitted.
  • Up to 15 minutes of effect can be produced from just one powder refill (equivalent to 1800 x 0.5 second pyrotechnic gerbs). This makes the system far more cost-effective.
  • Low smoke output.
  • Rigging time and crew requirement is dramatically reduced when compared to traditional pyrotechnics, again, making them far more cost-effective.
  • Variable duration and height of the effects is achievable.


Safety is always the number one concern when dealing with these types of effects. Traditional effects burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit, and cannot be stopped once they have been started. This can lead to all kinds of hazards and problems.

The Sparkler Fountain operates at such cool temperatures; the sparks themselves are not flammable. The machines are also very smart and have multiply built-in safety protocols. You can control the start and stop of the effect at any time, so the machine cannot be abused in any manner.

You now can control the time, height, volume this has never been achieved from a machine ever. This is beginning of a new technology to the world of stage of effects.


Is this system safe?

Sparkler Fountain System is the safest way to achieve these effects and are cold sparks and 100% compliant to use Indoors or Outdoors at venues.

How long does it take to set up?

A single machine can be set up in minutes, a line of machines can be set up in under an hour. This is a far cry from the days of prep traditional effects would take to set up.

How does the cost compare to traditional effects?

Not only is this system reusable, our granulated grains are a fraction of the cost compared to a traditional fireworks show. To hire the machine its approximately 60% less and completely safe.

Can I program the system to shoot in time with my event?

Yes. Our system is fully programmable from our control board or dmx. From timing and synching, to automating the entire segment of your show or songs.

If I have multiple units, does one controller control all of the boxes?

Yes. You can have up to 18 units being controlled by a single standard controller, or you can upgrade to our pro controller and control up to 54 units.
