Marine Signal Flare

About product

Marine signal flare is a pyrotechnic device that is used on ships and boats to emit smoke, sound, and light signals in order to call for help or indicate distress during emergency situations at sea. These emergency flares are specifically designed to be visible from a distance and attract attention from nearby vessels or rescue services. They serve as an important means of communication and can aid in alerting others to an urgent situation, facilitating a timely response and assistance. It’s crucial to handle marine flares with caution and follow proper safety protocols to ensure their effective and safe usage.

  • Flame type flares produce a visible flame and are accompanied by smoke.
  • Rocket Parachute Flame Signals (RPF) are propelled into the air and provide sustained visual signaling.
  • Handheld Flame Signals (HF) are manually ignited and emit a bright flame for signaling.
  • Smoke type flares produce dense and visible smoke clouds.
  • Floating Smoke Signals (BSS) float on the water’s surface and emit smoke for marking locations or indicating wind direction and drift.

Marine Emergency Flares – Signal Flare

marine signal flare

According to signal classification, marine signal flares are categorized into flame type and smoke type.

  • Flame Type: These emergency flares produce a visible flame and are often accompanied by smoke. They emit a bright and intense light that can be seen from a distance, making them useful for signaling distress during the night or in low visibility conditions. The flame type signal flares are further categorized based on their release mode.

a) Rocket Parachute Flame Signal (RPF): This type of emergency flare is propelled into the air by a rocket and deploys a parachute to slow its descent. It produces a sustained flame that provides a continuous visual signal.

b) Handheld Flame Signal (HF): These emergency flares are designed to be held in hand and manually ignited. They emit a bright flame and are commonly used for signaling during daylight or in close proximity situations.

  • Smoke Type: These marine flares produce a dense and highly visible smoke cloud without a flame. They are effective during daytime or in situations where a visual smoke signal is preferred. The smoke type signal flares are further categorized based on their release mode.

a) Floating Smoke Signal (BSS): These marine flares are designed to float on the water’s surface while emitting a dense smoke cloud. They are often used to mark the location of a distressed vessel or to indicate wind direction and drift.
