Designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably even after immersion in water, the Aurora hand flare produces a hot red flame for 60 seconds at 15,000 candela.
Unlike strike-to-start flares, the Aurora features a user-friendly pull-wire igniter. Simply unscrew the cap, grasp the protective handle and pull the wire lanyard sharply to ignite. The brilliant red flare burns at 15,000 candela for 60 seconds (compare to other brands' 700 candela). USCG-approved for day and night use, it's a powerful shore-range distress signal that grabs the attention of rescuers and helps pinpoint your position. The ACR Aurora Hand Flare is manufactured by the world leader in marine pyrotechnics.
At 15,000 candela, the Aurora Hand Flare burns 21 times brighter than the standard 700 candela flare. Unlike some flares, which emit dangerous sparks and ash, the Aurora's unique design minimizes emission of smoldering debris. Safe handling and operation is further enhanced with an ergonomic protective handle. The marine grade construction is performance-designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure, including total immersion in water. The Aurora's compact design makes stowage easy, and flares are available in cost-efficient 3-packs.
