Comet launches new Orange Smoke Signal at METS

Press Release
Monday, November 12, 2012

Comet is launching a new, more streamlined Orange Smoke Signal at the METS trade show.


The taller, thinner Orange Smoke Signal is being manufactured in-house by Drew Marine Signal and Safety, which ensures cost-effective production and security of supply.


The Orange Smoke Signal is being unveiled at the Marine Equipment Trade Show from 13-15 November in Amsterdam on Drew Marine Signal and Safety’s stand 03.217.


The Orange Smoke Signal is a compact, flat top, day time distress signal that produces dense orange smoke for at least three minutes and is used to mark positions during marine rescue operations and indicate wind direction.


Product Manager Keith Bradford says, “The Orange Smoke Signal improvement is part of Drew Marine Signal and Safety’s continuous development program for our half-a-dozen SOLAS products.”


The Orange Smoke Signal is 114mm (4.5inches) and 82mm (3.2inches) tall and can be stored in a water-tight locker at ambient temperature or the specially designed polybottle. Commercial liferafts and lifeboats have to fit two orange smokes to comply with SOLAS regulations.


The Comet brand is manufactured by Drew Marine Signal and Safety, a global supplier of SOLAS, MED & USCG-approved marine distress signals to commercial and leisure marine markets.


Comet products have been helping to save lives for more than 50 years and are specified by the world’s navies, merchant fleets, fishing vessels, rescue services, airlines and leisure craft. They are available through a global network of more than 200 distributors.


Drew Marine Signal and Safety, based in Havant, in the UK, is at the forefront of campaigning for improved global marine safety regulations, including introducing standardized rules on replacing dated safety products.
