Light & Smoke Signal Art No 9181600
The Light and Smoke Lifebuoy Marker produces dense orange smoke for 15 minutes and features two self contained, inversion switched, LED lights which far exceed SOLAS requirements for output and duration. Ships are required to carry 2 markers, one mounted on each bridge wing with the brackets supplied and attached by line to a 4kg Lifebuoy. The signal is used to mark the position of a man overboard by day or night. It can be automatically deployed by releasing the attached lifebuoy, or manually activated.
The Comet Smoke Signal Art. No 9181700 is identical, except that it does not feature the lighting system, so is an orange smoke daytime marker only.
Conforms to SOLAS 74 as amended. IMO Resolution MSC 81 (70) part 1. MED: Light & Smoke Signal – BGV 422.012, Smoke Signal – BGV 422.011. BAM-P1-0596, 0589-P1-0619.
