Ikaros Hand Flare
For short-range distress signalling on ships, lifeboats and life rafts. Also the best pinpoint signal for pleasure craft.

Just hold the handle, pop open the cap and pull out the ring to activate.

Incredibly easy to use, the Ikaros SOLAS Red Handheld Flare comes with full instructions for operating, but the simple mechanism only requires the user to pop off the safety cap, and pull on the plastic ring to give more than 60 seconds of bright red light at an intensity of 15,000 cd.

The handheld flare sits in a case of corrosion resistant steel, so that the Ikaros SOLAS Red Handheld Flare can be counted on to work, even after long periods of storage, although checks should be done to inspect the integrity of the product on a regular basis.

The Ikaros Red Handheld Flare complies to all quality control checks and the latest SOLAS 74/96 regulations.

Distress flares like this red marine flare are essential part of any on-board safety equipment. Red handheld flares should be used within the In-shore Zone. This area is classified as being 3 Miles from shore. As long as the weather and visibility is reasonable, someone stood on the shore should be able to see the light from a red handheld flare.

As red handheld flares are only visible up to 3 miles, they should only be used if you can see, or know there are people on the nearby shore, or if you can see another boat or aircraft. If you cannot see anyone, then it's unlikely anyone can see you. In this case, use a different type of flare, or wait until you can see someone before firing off the flare.
