Popular flame dancing effects from MTFX

MTFX has recently completed a series of large dancing flame effects around the UK.
MTFX's Firedance system has proved very popular this year, with shows up and down the country accompanying many Firework Fantasia's and Classical Concerts. It can be used both in daylight and night time productions with extreme versatility.
The standard system consists of 12 large jets of fire 8m high. Each jet is synchronised to a smpte track or other show system for millisecond accuracy, or the whole effect can be played live.
For safety reasons, each jet is intelligent enough to re-ignite itself should the pilot light be lost, thereby disabling that pod until a suitable ignition has been established.
The materials used for the effect are completely non-hazardous in their primary state, causing no problems with transportation or on site storage.
MTFX completed in total over a thousand 'burns' of various sizes, without incident and with the material igniting every time (we have over come the problems other systems have had of not lighting reliably).
Each head is also able to be operated at an angle, enabling 8 mtr jets of flame to be shot across the stage horizontally.
This year's productions have been so successful that MTFX have been rebooked for next years events already. For the rest of this year we have 3 shows booked up already - two overseas on sunny beaches and one in the UK.
If you require any further information or would like to see the effect working, call MTFX on 01452 729903 or 07836 207522.
