Bob Littler Agencies Pty Ltd—Marine Distress Flares—BLA Red Hand Flare and BLA Orange Hand Smoke Signal

What are the defects?

Further, there may be a fire hazard from the emission of hot particles from the flare. Limited testing by SAI Global has indicated that the orange hand smoke flares may not comply with Australian Standard 2092-2004, as while the smoke signals operated safely, the density and volume of smoke produced was inadequate.
