As in our manufacturing process, the stars, powders, inserts, black match, cans, and all other materials are manufactured first before any assembling takes place.
Once the material is manufactured, we begin assembling hundreds of 3 Inch, 4 Inch, & 5 Inch salutes, single break canister shells, round shells, two break & three break canister shell fireworks.
Strung 3 Inch and 4 Inch canister shells ready to be pasted, and 4 inch and 5 inch round shells ready to be taped. Since there are considerably more layers of paper needed on a round firework, they are taped with a gummed tape instead of being pasted. Once the gum tape is applied, the shells do not need to be dried at all. The shells are then ready to be finished, making these fireworks much faster to produce.
Pasted firework shells drying on an outside drying rack. It usually takes about 1 day to fully dry these shells if there is full sun and a light breeze.
The fireworks are then finished with the leader, black powder lift, lift wrap, and shell tags.
Old Glory Powder Company manufactures our own finale chains. We manufacture the black match, make the paper leader pipe, and then hand tie the finale chains.
Since our chains burn considerably slower than the Chinese quick match, our finales last much longer and allows the spectators eyes to pick up all of the finale's explosions of brilliant colors!
Once the finale chains are all manufactured, then we begin tying each individual firework shell to the chain. By doing our chains this way, we choreograph our finales to our many varieties of American Fireworks.
These are some of our larger diameter shells that we incorporate into our finales. Single break 4 inch to 8 inch shells are used depending upon the distances from spectators and buildings. We also incorporate double and triple break 5 inch and 6 inch fireworks in our shows and finales.
Once all of the fireworks have the leader, black powder lift charge, and lift wrap completed, we sort the fireworks into labeled boxes.
Organization is very important in tying finale chains. There are 10 fireworks per each strand of a finale chain. The fireworks must then be selected to be tied onto the chain. Our company usually makes the first chain in the finale red, white, and blue, and then from there we add in many other varieties of colors, salutes, and whistling shells. We also attach whistles to the top of our fireworks for our shows and finales so that the shell whistles as it ascends, and then explodes.
More fireworks organized in boxes ready to be tied to finale chains.
