The Pains Wessex Para Red Mk8A Rocket conforms to Solas 1974 as amended. Designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably even after immersion in water, the pull wire ignitor and improved grip provides easy handling. Ejecting a red flare on a parachute at 1000ft, burning for 40 seconds at 30,000 candela.
A day or night long-range distress signal.
These hand-held red flares meet demanding SOLAS specifications. They are brighter than non-SOLAS flares, and are designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably under extreme conditions. The flare is encased in a steel tube for safety to eliminate damage from burning ashes (can be used in inflatable rafts). For greater operational ease and safety, it is fitted with an integral pull, twist and strike firing mechanism.
Additional features of this signal are that waterproofing is achieved without the use of sealing tapes, hence easier operation, and once ignited the flare will continue to operate if immersed in water.
