IKAROS Parachute Rocket Red

The red parachute rocket is used for long-range distress signaling on ships, lifeboats and life rafts. When activated, it launches a signal flare to attract the attention of rescuers.

The launching tube features clear instructions for use, and its non-slip surface ensures safe operation even when you launch it with one hand. The parachute flare is waterproof and can be held underwater when fired.

Introduced in 1959, the parachute flare has a design that is now used by most manufacturers around the world. As the leader of the market, it meets the highest demands for quality, performance, functionality, and safe operation. It has been approved globally and conforms to the latest SOLAS regulations.
