Pyrotechnics

​Pyrotechnics are used to increase to change of survival of the crew in case of emergency at sea. Different kind of pyrotechnics, like handflares, smoke signals, parachute signal rockets and line throwing devices, are used to draw the attention of nearby vessels for assistance and rescue. 

Hand flares

​For use during day or night the red hand flare is a short-range distress signal used to pinpoint position. May be carried on the ship’s bridge and is a requirement in ship’s life boats and life rafts.

Parachute signal rockets

​The parachute signal rocket is designed to fire a single red star to a height of approximately 300 meter. The flare self-activates to produce intense red smoke. A parachute opens up and reduces the rate of descent which gives more time to the flare to remain at a height and to provide a clear view to nearby vessels and rescue.

Smoke signal, orange

​The smoke signal orange is a compact, daylight distress signal designed to be easy and safe to handle. It provides effective position marking during rescue operations and can be used to indicate wind direction, producing dense orange smoke for a minimum of 3 minutes.

Light smoke signal MOB

​The light and smoke lifebuoy marker features 15 minutes of dense orange smoke and a self-activated lighting system which far exceeds solas requirements for light output and duration. It is mounted on a ships bridge wing with the bracket supplied and is attached by line to a lifebuoy.The signal is used to mark the position of a man overboard by day or night. It can be automatically or manually activated deployed by releasing the attached lifebuoy.
