Pyrotechnics that can be purchased from Taskforce Paintball Cardiff are for sale to players aged 18+.
Hand Grenades are constructed using a cardboard shell, with a fuse inside that has 20-25 paintballs around the centre. To light the fuse, you must tear off the cap, and use the reverse side, which resembles the side of a match box to spark the fuse. When the fuse is lit, there is an approximate 5 seconds before the grenade shatters and explodes, firing coloured paint in all directions.
Smoke Bombs use the same lighting technology as the hand grenade, with a reverse side to the cap which you must strike against the fuse. When a smoke bomb is lit, it releases coloured smoke for about 2 minutes, to provide cover, or smoke out other paintball players.
