Firebrand safety torches are simple, but most effective, real flame devices used in theatres throughout the world. Approved for indoor on-stage use by UK fire services, and seen most frequently at the RSC, Shakespeare's Globe, Covent Garden, & theatres in London's West End. Firebrand torches have not only been used extensively in major world-touring productions but have also featured in country-wide amateur performances, churches, weddings and festivals. Of all steel construction, with a self-consuming wax burner, the torches give approximately ten minutes of real flame as long as the handle is gripped open. When the handle is released, the flame is instantly extinguished. Torches can be purchased or are available for hire by the week. Burners are readily available, with alternative sizes made to order. Since Alexander's death Kate has picked up the reins, continuing to make and supply torches and burners.
