Confetti Cannons or Powershots are used to create an instant hit of colour. Probably the main stay of our special effects kit, particularly for corporate events, award dinners and music events and festivals.

Versatile and easy to install, Powershot cannons can be used in small or large numbers to instantly fill an area with fluttering colour.

Big Shot Cannons and Stadium Shot Cannons

For bigger confetti cannon effects, Big Shot Cannons and Stadium Shot Cannons are used to deliver larger shots of confetti over a larger area.

Often used outdoors at sporting events and festivals where scale is needed.

Confetti Blasters

Moving up in scale Confetti Blasters are designed to deliver large volumes of confetti quickly.

Powered by CO2 these machines give off a roar and a plume of white vapour which adds to the effect. You will have seen blasters in action at big events in stadiums, arenas and theatres, or at large outdoor events.

Halo FX have used confetti blasters to create flurries of snow flakes at Christmas Lights Switch-ons, and to fill the sky with thousands of red poppy petals at Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday parades .

Exploding Confetti Balloons

An instant confetti effect with a bang!  – Exploding Confetti Balloons – unique to Halo FX.

Triggered by a wireless firing system, these 2ft helium balloons filled with confetti all burst together scattering confetti in all directions. Also available as non helium balloons suspended from the ceiling or truss.

Confetti Swirl Fans

For longer durations than cannons, Confetti Swirl Fans deliver sustained falls of confetti from above a stage or auditorium. Highly controllable the fall can be very light or heavy, and multiple machines can cover a wide area.

Great for creating a atmospheric effects for musical theatre, fashion shows where long durations are needed.

Silent Storm Confetti Blowers

Silent Storm Confetti Blowers also deliver sustained light or heavy cascades of confetti with the added advantage of being able to be attached to a ducting system to blow confetti over the top of scenery and are ideal with low ceiling venues where a swirl fan can’t be used.

Popular with our wedding customers for creating a magical first dance effect.

Handheld Confetti Cannons

Finally Hand held confetti and streamer cannons are great for smaller events, weddings and private parties.

We can custom fill our cannons with a wide variety of confetti and streamers effects including snowflakes, red hearts, pink and white blossom.
