Key Benefits & Features:
For the time being Whitworths is unable to legally dispatch marine flares
(Class 1 Explosives) by normal road couriers due to changes in government
regulations that have come into effect.
We hope that this will be resolved soon
with an exemption for Marine Distress Signals. We apologise for any
inconvenience caused by this.
2 hand flares. 2 hand smoke packed in
square polypropylene container.
Pains Wessex Aurora Red Handflare fired at night can
be seen up to 10 Km away at sea level and up to 20 km away by an aircraft. They
can also be used in daylight over shorter distances.
For day use only, the Aurora Orange Handsmoke unique
smoke pellet formulation produces a persistent vivid and expanding cloud of
dense orange smoke which can be seen for more than 60 seconds. The smoke can be
seen from 4 Km away in a 10 knot breeze, at sea level, and even further
from an aircraft.
The Aurora flare kit is packaged in a tight fitting,
square polypropylene container. The close fit stops the flares from being
vibrated excessively and the plastic container assists in keeping the flares
dry. In fact, the new Aurora flares are waterproof in their own right as the
steel tubes can still be subjected to water and moisture without affecting the
performance or operation of the flares.
