The supplied brand/model may vary to the listed flare brand due to supply issues & so we can get you the best prices & expiry dates! They will of course be of the same high quality. Please let us know if there is a problem & we will let you know pricing/availability on the original brand.
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.
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.
