New “VS Virtually Smokeless” pyrotechnics products
Le Maitre’s range of VS - “virtually smokeless” pyrotechnics is continuing to expand and receive excellent feedback from the market, followed up with increasing orders! At Prolight & Sound Frankfurt, Le Maitre will be launching several new stunning effects to the range: VS Mines (15/25/35ft), VS Starbursts (Small/Medium/Large), VS Ice Waterfalls (8/15/20ft), VS Volcano Mines (Small/Large), VS Ice Gerbs (10/15/20ft) and VS Flashes.
In addition to much reduced smoke levels the VS range has incredible intensity and depth of colour compared to conventional pyrotechnics which although bright, tend to be less vivid. Le Maitre’s VS products all have much deeper and more vibrant colours, particularly noticeable with the blue, purple and pink colours.
“The VS range is in line with Le Maitre’s strategy of continuously introducing the best range of visually stunning pyrotechnics on the market ensuring spectators get to see the effects at their very best!” states Karen Haddon, MD and Owner of Le Maitre Ltd.

New confetti cannon – ProConfetti Blower
Le Maitre has added a brand new product to its special effects line-up with a powerful confetti cannon. The ProConfetti Blower projects confetti and glitter some 40-60ft to create an arena-full of swirling confetti.
The continuous, hand-fed blowers use easily connected liquid or vapour C02 bottles to propel the confetti across theatre or concert stages, sports stadiums, or audiences, indoors or outdoors, covering huge areas in just a matter of seconds, processing confetti at speeds of 3-10kg/minute (dependent upon operator). There are three possible blower angles for the operator to choose from depending upon the projection angle required.
The ProConfetti Blower is a robust 50kg unit requiring no electricity. Liquid C02 consumption is at 0.2-0.4 kilo/sec.
Le Maitre hazers are known for their incredible output and low power consumption, not to mention the haze fluid which produces the purest, most efficient and long lasting haze on the market. To make this benefit even clearer to customers, Le Maitre has now re-branded its haze fluid as “PureHaze Fluid”.
Le Maitre’s PureHaze Fluid is 85-90% active ingredient combined with just 10-15% water. Not 80-90% water and only 10-20% active ingredient as is the case with so many other haze fluids on the market. In fact many aren’t even true hazers at all but simply smoke machines with fans and which consequently have to use much lower concentrated solutions which are in fact smoke fluids. As a result, competitive haze systems need to create 8 to 9 times the output to achieve the same haze effect that Le Maitre’s Haze machines produce. Put quite simply a competitive unit would need to consume 8 to 9 times more fluid just to produce the same haze effect!
Combine this with the fact that Le Maitre’s sugar-based fluid is extremely green and completely safe to use on the stage or in crowded clubs and Le Maitre’s PureHaze fluid is an environmentally friendly winning product all round.
Le Maitre’s haze fluid is included in equipment guidelines, calibration and health effects reports on the use of smoke and haze prepared by bodies including ESTA (now PLASA) and Environ.
