Survival Equipment, Flares - Distress, Comet, Safety & Survival


The Comet Day & Night Signal is a very compact personal survival signal incorporating a red flare at one end for night time use, and a dense orange smoke at the other for daytime use.
The flare end is ribbed to aid identification at night, and both ends are fully waterproof with 'O' ring seals.
Either end can be fired independently and the signal can be doused in water after firing, allowing the unused end to be stowed until required.
Originally designed as a personal distress signal for naval divers, helicopter pilots and air crew, the Comet Day & Night Signal is also ideal for divers, windsurfers, dinghy sailors and small boats operating inshore as well as outdoor pursuits such as mountaineering and as an extra survival item for aircraft.

The signal is waterproof to a depth of 30 metres.

Flare burning time: 20 seconds
Flare light output: 10000 candela
Smoke burning time: 18 seconds
Dimensions: 139mm x 42.5mm diameter

Expiration Dates: We will supply the most recent dates possible. However a few months, from date of manufacture can elapse due to time taken for transport to NZ & distribution. All Distress Flares carry a 3 year expiry date. This is due to the marine environment in which they are typically stored and because the pyrotechnic performance diminishes after that time. Because of the "lifeing" nature of the product, flares are not normally returnable.

Important Freight Note : Because of their pyrotechnic nature, distress flares will incur a 'Dangerous Goods Transport' charge as they require special transportation.
International Orders: Flares cannot be sent by post and can only be shipped by surface vessel.
We can quote freight costs.
