Alternatives to Zeus Mines

7 shot 30mm calibre Dump Cake (Mine)

Impressive mines with huge eruptions. Technically they are a dump cake down an external tube to simulate the look of a mortar mine but they look great nevertheless.

Choose your effect:

  • Chaos - red mines to large silver strobe breaks with red peonies
  • Havoc - coloured peony mines to titanium crackles
  • Mayhem - brocade glitter mines into large brocade crowns

Our Advice

Although technically Mines no longer exist in the retail fireworks world these units behave and look just like them. An instant volley of effects are ideal as a finale hit rather than using a big rocket. Do make sure these units are securely fixed so they can't fall over!

Set-up & firing for Mines, Slices & Dump Cakes

Follow the directions as instructed on the fireworks warning label. Please be aware of the required safety distances for firers and spectators.

Step 1 - Place firework on flat ground and secure to a stake or post which has been inserted in to the ground (crowd side of the Candle) with strong tape or cable ties.

A mine staked to the ground

Step 2 - Locate 1st fuse, signified by the words FUSE or FIRST FUSE or by the number 1. (Note: Some fireworks now contain 2 fuses others only have 1)

Step 3 - Remove the orange fuse cover and if required pull fuse through clear plastic on top of the cake for easier access.

Exposing the mine's fuse

Step 4 - Ensuring no part of your body is over the firework. Standing sideways, at arm’s length light outermost end of the fuse and retire immediately to the stated distance on the firework label.

 

Further Advice

Rapid fire warning

These fireworks are design to fire very fast or even instantaneously so make sure that the person lighting knows that this what these fireworks will do.

Wet Weather 

You can wrap your Mines, Slices & dump Cakes in plastic, either a plastic bag or wrap in cling film. Only do this if the firework is likely to be sat out in the rain for some period before you need to light it.

Before you light the fuse cut open the plastic with a knife and follow the instructions above to lighting the firework.

What is the minimum set-up I need to do?

Not everyone has stakes, gaffer tape or cable ties to hand and although we would recommend getting these items, here are some workarounds;

  • Part bury the firework in soil (some fireworks have bury lines on them)
  • You can use bricks or blocks to sandwich the firework in place.
  • Don't use sellotape to secure the fireworks as it will melt if hit by sparks.

    Disposing of the firework

    Under no circumstances should you throw the 'dead' firework on a bonfire. There may still be unused pyrotechnics in it and it might randomly fire or explode.

    A used or 'dead' firework is mostly cardboard and clay so can be put into a bin bag for the refuse service. Do not put fireworks that failed to fire in the bin, return them to us for safe disposal.
