Product Overview

Compared to handheld flares, these arial flares can be seen from a greater distance.

Less expensive than SOLAS-grade flares, these flares are a good choice for coastal or inland use. In the event of a lake or coastal emergency, they are super-easy to launch. Just open the breech, remove one of the flares from the bandolier, chamber the flare, close the breech, then point upward and fire. Flares reach a maximum height of 500' and burn at 16,000 candela for seven to ten seconds.
