Types of Smoke Grenades

1. Friction Smoke Grenades

The Enola Gaye Friction Smoke Grenade is the original design of smoke grenade from EG where you snap off the cap which then exposes the fuse, which you then strike with the cap to ignite the smoke grenade just like a match! They're super easy to use and very cost-effective. This is an awesome product for the value of money and is the standard by which other smoke grenades are judged. Great for paintballing, where you need it to kick up a decent smoke cloud to give you cover!

Other Pyrotechnic Grenades

1. Flash Grenades

We have a variety of flash grenades available to purchase at Just Paintball UK, ranging from 3 different types from Enola Gaye. We have the MK5 Thunderflash, the Flash Grenade 1.0 and the 3.0 available to order! Each are very similar in themselves in the purpose, but the Thunderflash works slightly different to the Flash Grenade 1.0 and 3.0. 

The MK5 Thunderflash is the benchmark product for distraction and diversion. Airsoft and Paintball players use this product to divert their opponents attention when they can’t get an aim on them, a simple but very effective product designed to mimic the version used by the military. The Enola Gaye version is tested and approved for use in paintball and airsoft without the military intensity of throwing real grenades at each other.

The effect of a MK5 is just a loud high pitched noise effect; the ignition system is our trusted friction igniter, just snap off the cap and strike it against the fuse.

Click here to view MK 5 Thunderflash Grenades.

The Flash Grenade 1.0 from Enola Gaye has been developed for Airsoft and Paintball players whos game play is in low light, urban, CQB etc.. It delivers a low bang and white flash that confuses your opponent allowing you time to enter the room and dispose of you newly confused foe. Unlike the MK5 Thunderflash, the noise report of the Flash Grenade is much lower in pitch and overall volume. Designed with a friction ignition, all you have to do is pull of the cap and strike it across the fuse head.

The product effect from a flash grenade is from the base of the tube, so unlike the MK5 the tube is not destroyed upon ignition.

The Flash 3.0 Grenade is currently the largest distraction grenade available in the EG line for tactical use. The noise report delivered is a low frequency boom that, while loud, is not uncomfortable. The 3.0 produces a significant white flash that is ideal for low light conditions. It’s fitted with a Top Pull igniter enabling the user to deploy the grenade with ease. 

With a 5 second fuse delay from ignition, this lightweight flash grenade gives you enough time to launch it towards the opposition to give them a surprise short white flash to catch them off guard. The amazing design is also 99.5% biodegradable and has a low CO2 output.
