The Pains Wessex Ship's Bridge Distress Kit is designed to meet the SOLAS/MED/USCG regulation which requires twelve Parachute Red Rockets to be kept on a ship's bridge. This kit is packed in a 12-liter Poly Bottle.
The Parachute Red Rocket is a day or night long-range distress signal that conforms to SOLAS 74/88 as amended. Designed to withstand exceptional environmental exposure and to perform reliably even after immersion in water, the pull-wire ignitor and improved grip provide easy handling.
Twelve should be carried on the ship's bridge and four are required in a ship's lifeboats and liferafts. They are also suitable for use in other commercial and recreational boats.
- Approved to the latest worldwide SOLAS specification
