Why should I use Prox
Pyro? The other outfits have done The Rolling Stones tours, they
have Disneyland as a customer!
We have been performing
special effects and pyrotechnics for over 15 years now, and that's pyrotechnics
in front of a close audience, not just fireworks displays. We have
the creativity to make your event special. Read some of our first
Safety is our #1
concern. We are fully compliant with NFPA 1126, the safety code
for proximate pyrotechnics, use only state licensed Pyrotechnicians, and
are trained in the Ohio State Fire Marshal's in-service education program
. Click here for more about us.
All of our effects (with
rare exceptions) are pre loaded in disposable cartridges and are fired
from quick-change fixtures. You won't see any of our staff running
to the local gun shop to buy a can of shotgun powder to use as an effect.
You won't see any of our people hand mixing high-explosive flash powder
in a plastic bottle, spending 30 minutes carefully (you hope!) measuring
out the powder into flashpots before the effects can be repeated.
Cartridges allow us to precisely repeat effects time after time.
Our quick-change fixturing allows easy demonstrations for the local fire
authorities, for performers, for fine tuning, and for multiple shows.
Our precision allows the hottest, wildest effects while still maintaining
We aren't "married"
to any particular manufacturer of effects as most of the big distributor/exhibitors
are. We can get you the best effects from over five manufactures
whose products we regularly buy samples of and test.
We can often give special
pricing to schools, community theater, and other “non-profit” groups --
just ask us.
Our parent company,
C.A.T., Inc. is an engineering firm. We engineer all our effects
for exact performance, repeatability, and safety -- we don't do anything
"by the seat of our pants."
