Cyalume Technologies, Inc.'s 8-inch Flare Alternative, the Next Generation Flare has been developed as a safe, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional flares that are currently used by law enforcement, safety workers, and consumers. The 8-inch Ultra High-Intensity lightstick with reflective strip and attached wire stand is the new dependable instant light solution.
Government agencies and commercial companies are moving away from incendiary flares because of pollution, fire danger, and liability. Traditional flares burn at extremely high temperatures causing severe burns, ruined uniforms/clothing, and equipment. They contain large amounts of hazardous materials such as sulfur and perchlorates. These hazards create risk for the user, innocent bystanders, and the environment. They are difficult to extinguish and the fumes are offensive and toxic. Unlike traditional flares, the 8-inch Flare Alternative will not produce heat or flames. It provides 30 minutes of reliable high-intensity light visible up to one mile. Activation is easy with no batteries required. The 8-inch Flare Alternative meets DOT non-hazardous standards, eliminating hazardous shipping fees.
The 8-inch Flare Alternatives are designed for use at accident scenes, vehicle breakdowns, as hazard markers, and to alert drivers of obstacles in the road. This ultra high-intensity lightstick can be used in wet or dry weather and provides the most visible light in low-light or dark situations. The new-patented formulation provides superior performance in cold and warm climates.
