Fire

All of our fire equipment and loose wicks use 100% Para-Aramid fibre.
Generic Para-Aramid is often incorrectly referred to as Kevlar® which was originally created by DuPont in 1965. Only para aramid fibre produce by Dupont can be called Kevlar®. The technical name for Kevlar® is Para-Aramid.
Para-Aramid is a very strong, heat resistant synthetic fibre which is woven into strips and used for all good fire wicks. This is the best known material for fire props and, unlike inferior wicks using glass fibre or even asbestos, it is durable, inert and completely non- toxic in normal use.
Please note: Para-Aramid is heat resistant, not fire proof. To extend the life of your fire wicks we suggest you use only Paraffin. Avoid using alcohol based fuels as these burn at higher temperature and will degrade the wicks faster.

A lot of the cheaper Aramid products on the market have fibreglass mixed in with the kevlar- the fibreglass does not absorb the fuel and tends to turn silver and dry up with time. If this happens, we recommend you replacing your wick with a purer grade of wick.

    Juggle Dream Fire Spitting Stick.
    Constructed from 8mm thick, solid aluminium rod and fitted with soft padded foam handles the Juggle Dream fire spitting stick is a simple, elegant fire prop.
    Please note this stick is designed for spitting, rather than eating, fire. The metal construction makes the stick resistant to the higher temperatures generated from fire spitting and the screw fixing makes for easy wick changes.

    Fire breathing is potentially the most dangerous of the fire arts. We do not recommend anyone attempt fire breathing!
