Standard for the Use of Pyrotechnics Before a Proximate Audi



Control hazards and save lives with the 2016 NFPA 1126: Standard for the Use of Pyrotechnics Before a Proximate Audience.

In an instant, the excitement and drama of pyrotechnics can take a tragic turn, destroying lives and property. That's why compliance with NFPA 1126: Standard for the Use of Pyrotechnics Before a Proximate Audience is critical to the fire and life safety of operators, performers, support personnel, viewing audiences, buildings and equipment -- indoors or outdoors with a proximate audience. Application includes use in conjunction with theatrical, musical, or performing arts productions in theaters, stadiums, concert halls, and similar venues.

Improve safety for both the audience and operators and reduce property damage with the 2016 edition.

Pyrotechnic and special effects operators, venue managers, and enforcing officials need to know about the Standard's expanded scope:

  • Added requirements for the use of hybrid flame effects coordinate with NFPA 160, to eliminate an area of confusion for Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) as well as designers and maintainers of the installation
  • New guidance on how NFPA 1126 applies to airshows where pyrotechnic devices are used -- helping operators and venue managers close critical safety gaps

The use of hybrid flame effects has increased in recent years, and the 2016 NFPA 1126 responds to fire and life safety needs.

The 2016 NFPA 1126 is an essential safety resource for protecting people and property wherever pyrotechnics are used for entertainment. (Softbound, 21 pp., 2016)
