Pains Wessex Solas Flares

Solas Flares
(4) Pains Wessex Solas Para Red Rocket MK8A expiration date 02/17

(4) Pains Wessex Solas Red Handflare MK8A expiration date 02/17

I'm selling the lot for $100, email for more information, and current pickup location.

The Pains Wessex Para Red Mk8A Rocket conforms to Solas 1974 as amended. Designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably even after immersion in water, the pull wire ignitor and improved grip provides easy handling. Ejecting a red flare on a parachute at 1000ft, burning for 40 seconds at 30,000 candela.
A day or night long-range distress signal.

These hand-held red flares meet demanding SOLAS specifications. They are brighter than non-SOLAS flares, and are designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably under extreme conditions. The flare is encased in a steel tube for safety to eliminate damage from burning ashes (can be used in inflatable rafts). For greater operational ease and safety, it is fitted with an integral pull, twist and strike firing mechanism.
Additional features of this signal are that waterproofing is achieved without the use of sealing tapes, hence easier operation, and once ignited the flare will continue to operate if immersed in water.
• Meets the specifications of SOLAS, USCG, and EC-type certificates
• Approved for day and night use to pinpoint position
• Visibility up to 5 miles
• Easy to operate even with cold wet hands
Award winning pull-twist-strike firing mechanism
• Burns for 60 seconds at 15,000 candlepower

Re: Pains Wessex Solas Flares

Are you going to be anywhere near Beaufort/Morehead City, Oriental in North Carolina?

I'd be interested in them.

PM also sent to you. Doug
