Fire Fans Wire Frames only

By Malcolm Crawshay, Home of Poi
Want to make your own Flow Art Fans or other styles?

We sell all our fan frames on their own. Frames are sold individually as 'single fan frames', so you will need to order 2 units if you want a pair.

How Fire Fan Frames are made?

The Fan wireframes get made from carbon steel rod, which is fill welded together for additional strength with all rings and handles filed and ground down to be kind and smooth on the hands. These are then heat-treated hardened inside large ovens and then quickly quenched by the rapid cooling of the frames. This process makes carbon steel much stronger. Then the frames are anti-rust treated and finally covered in a high-temperature resistant black or white powder coating.

The folding Fan Frames get cut from Aerospace (Al.7075) aluminum and then finished with a black anodized outer coating. These are very robust because of the strong aluminum used.

Adding Kevlar(R) Wick to your Frames

For those stitching your own Fire Fan wicks together, remember to make sure your wicks are not too tight, being too tight will mean it is much harder to push your needle through resulting in sore fingers and a lot of extra time taken. We have an instructional video on all fan kit product pages to help you get your fans ready for use.

We also sell as Make your own Fire Fan Kits with the frames, Kevlar(R) wicks and thread, and curved sewing needles all included. Plus easy video instructions on stitching the Kevlar(R) onto the fans.

Other Wire Fan Frame ideas

  • Instead of Kevlar(R) wicks you can attach glow sticks or other LED light sticks using tape.
  • Cover each prong with bright flowing fabric or ribbons to create a lovely trailing effect.
  • Add one piece of lightweight fabric between all of the prongs with one long tail.
  • Obtain the Christmas tree lights that are powered via a small battery pack. Tape the battery box close to the handle grip, then wrap the lights up and down the fan frame for an amazing lighting effect.
  • You can also add some Poi cords and handles to one side on each frame so you can also do poi fans' moves.
  • I have even put in a pot and grown a small plant over the frame
  • Hang it on the wall as a piece of art.
  • You are only limited by your imagination.

Nothing beats the feeling of making your unique prop. Please share your pictures of what you created with us. Or add a photo when you add a product review for the frame.


SINGLE HoP Large Ring Fire Fan Frame  
27th December, 2023

Good practice fans
"These are good practice fans! The weight is decently well distributed and at this low price, I'm able to have a couple pairs to switch off of. Make sure to add some kind of padding if you're adding fan covers and you're set."

SINGLE HoP 5 Finger Fire Fan Frame  
11th April, 2020

Great frames
"I chose these frames because i have been using home of poi fans for few years now. This time i have in mind something different that's why i have been loking for frames only. I had an idea of making coal fans and the quality of the frames ensures me that they are the best choice i could ever make. I love them. They are light and easy to spin. Also, they are quite resistent and bend friendly during the little accidents."

Single Nautical Fire Fan Frame  
24th October, 2019

Great Fans
"Really well weighted fans. The design is unique and attractive. There is a paint/coating on the ring, it is not bare metal, so keep in mind the fans do stick a bit if you start getting sweaty."
