Types of Fireworks in the United States

In the United States, the legal classification of fireworks is done based on the potential hazards they can offer. However, American Fireworks can broadly be classified into two main categories: Consumer Fireworks and Display Fireworks. Consumer fireworks are the 1.4G fireworks and Display Fireworks are the 1.3S Fireworks under the United Nations explosives shipping classification system. There could be different aspects such as the weight, size, powered content, chemical reaction, the intensity and blast impact etc that can determine the classification of fireworks.

These classifications of 1.4G and 1.3S are significant because they involve different regulations from manufacturing, storage, sales and transportation points of views. And of course, the use of these fireworks also involves particular sets of regulations and guidelines. Anyone, involved in the buying, selling, storage and transportation of fireworks in the United States, needs to have an appropriate license from the ATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives).

Consumer Fireworks

There could be a wide variety of consumer fireworks that the common people may possess and use to celebrate any occasion in the US. These fireworks could be further sub-classified as:

1. Low-level and mid-level displays and devices: These may include a variety of fireworks such as roman candle fireworks, mines, bottle rockets, fountains, comets, multi-shot aerial repeaters and others. These fireworks offer various styles and sound and lighting effects.

2. Pyro Musical and Choreographed Displays: These are a type of computerized firing that one often witnesses in the fireworks video. Fireworks can be added to music soundtracks for a vivid presentation. These effects are more desirable during a live band or an orchestra performance.
