These small-sized flares have different applications. The 15 mm signal flares are designed to be fired by signal and gas pistols and revolvers through blank cartridges.
Due to their extreme brightness or power of sound, these flares have multiple emergency or just signaling uses. They are perfect for camping, hiking, inshore distress signaling, Forest Service, fishing, canoeing, cross-country skiing, aviation, etc. 15 mm signal flares are designed to extinguish 6-7 seconds before touchdown as to prevent forest-fire.
We do carry a wide range of 15 mm flares:
- flares with illumination effect- red, green, white, and triple-colour (red, green, white), silver comet and whistling
- flares with audible effect- bearbangers and whistling
- flares with audible and illuminating effect- comet bearbangers.
The bearbangers are also known as Bird Bombs, Bird Bangers, Noise Bombs, etc. Their main feature is their delayed bang action with the range of 30-50 m height of flight.
All the flares with illuminating effect may be used for distress singaling or just as a locator. The red one is usually recognized as a distress signal. The green is used as an "O.k."signal and the white may be used as a locator.
The comets are known for their sparkling tail that follows the flying flare and may point the movement direction. The whistling flares, also known as screamers, produce loud, high pitch whistling sound. Their piping sound lasts until the end of the flare's flight.
