Additional Safety Notes
The TLSFX War Gaming Grenades and Thunder flashes are classified as an explosive
UN classification system and as such cannot be legally be sold to or used by any person under the age of 18 years. There are hazards
associated with the use of these devices as with a firework or similar item, some hazards are obvious others not so. It is the responsibility of the

There are conditions on which this TLSFX product is supplied. Persons buying and using these devices are required to read these conditions.
Any site operator not agreeing to these conditions will not be supplied and will be removed from our register of Authorised Customers.
Any pyrotechnic device generates heat beyond the ignition temperature of every day rubbish i.e. paper. dried vegetation etc. The TLSFX
product units contain the majority of the heat within the casing of the device during normal operation. However, at the beginning and of
functioning it is likely that the device will produce some flame, incandescent emissions or a quality of very hot gas, failure to use the devise
properly may result rupturing of the casing and similar problems. Because of this, the device must not be used in close proximity (5m minimum)
to any person or any combustible material. This safety zone is recommended for guidance only; it is the ultimate responsibility of the site owner
to determine the suitability of his/her site for use.
The smoke produced by the device presents potential hazards in that it has a staining effect on surrounding surfaces and that as with any
smoke, concentrations should be kept to a minimum. The grenade should only be used in the open air and never indoors. Persons suffering
from any breathing difficulties should not be exposed to any levels of smoke concentration.
The grenade retains heat after it has finished burning, and if not used correctly can cause serious injury. For this reason the use of the device
should be carefully supervised by stewards who are trained with the safe use of pyrotechnics.
Each site operator should ensure that unused devices should not be taken away from the site by the players.
