Using fire machine safely

Is Fire Machine REALLY Dangerous?

On November 18th, Brazilian rapper João was performing in Rio de Janeiro when he was accidentally hit by a flame projector, causing his pants to catch fire. This news demonstrates the potential dangers of using flame effects. So what measures can we take to reduce the probability of such risks?


First, carefully read the user manual and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines before operating a fire projector.

  • Choose a suitable location and maintain adequate ventilation.

The area of the venue should not be too small. If you use the flame machine indoors, please maintain ventilation to avoid gas accumulation or fire hazards.

  • Keep away from flammable materials to prevent sparks from causing unexpected fires.

This distance provides a safe zone and helps reduce any touch by accident or the risk of danger.
