The intense flickering, red glare provided by a flare through extreme, environmental conditions is unparalleled by competitive products.
Flares are self-sustaining, do not require an outside light source to be effective and there is no concern about battery life or corroding electrical parts. Flares are time tested and have been the primary distress signal on our railroads and highways for over 50 years for one simple reason – they work the best.
In addition to brightness, movement enhances visibility. The “flicker” associated with the burning of an emergency flare (as escaping gases fractionally move the light source back and forth) is unique to a flare and eye catching to passersby.
