Firework Storage Containers
Fireworks are used for many occasions including bonfire night, weddings and Christmas and New Year celebrations . With their ever growing popularity Lion Containers are receiving more and more enquiries regarding safe storage of fireworks. Fireworks are big when it comes to entertainment because they look so amazing when they set off, we all know how enjoyable and entertaining they are but they can be extremely dangerous, that’s why it’s so important to store them in a safe and secure environment.
Firework Storage Legislation
When storing fireworks, it is important that they are kept away from any sources of heat or ignition and kept dry. The Manufacture and Storage of Explosives Regulations 2005 (MSER) came into force on 26th April 2005 and impose storage requirements for explosives including:
Firework Storage Segregation
Failure to meet these requirements may render anyone storing explosives liable to prosecution. Due to the easy ignition of fireworks, it is imperative that controlled measures are taken to prevent the accidental ignition of the fireworks and to restrict the spread of fire. This is achieved by segregating the fireworks from sources of ignition, heat, other combustibles, flammable goods and public access. One of the recommended methods of segregation include storing fireworks in a locked metal shipping container located outside in a secure location and used solely for firework storage. You must ensure that the location is suitable for the quantity of fireworks that you are storing and that the fireworks are kept in their boxes.
