Pencil Flare - Compact Distress Signals



The lightweight, Pains Wessex Compact Distress Signal pack contains 3 red aerial flare cartridges and a pen-jector firing mechanism, all enclosed in a tough, water-resistant case. The pen-jector is fitted with a stainless-steel spring and striker pin. It features a slot for easy loading and unloading of the flare cartridges. These are stored inside the casing on an elastic lanyard to avoid them being lost when the base cap is unscrewed[spcaer]


Pains Wessex Personal Distress Signals are designed primarily for use on yachts, dinghies, Personal Water Craft, canoes and sailboards, but have many applications as a general-purpose distress signal for aviation, hill-walking, climbing, skiing and other outdoor pursuits. Each cartridge projects its payload to a height of over 45 metres, burns for up to 5 seconds at a minimum of 10,000 candelas and is visible for at least 5 miles in daylight increasing to 10 miles at night, depending on weather conditions. Operating instructions are on the case.
