The 15 inch IMPACT lightstick (40cm) is the only light stick activated on impact with the ground

The Cyalume 15 inch (40 cm) ground impact lightstick activates automatically on impact with the ground. It is used by the military or by law enforcement forces to create a surprise effect during tactical operations, or to illuminate a room or an area where access is difficult or risky.

When the lightstick activates on impact, it generates instantaneous light without disclosing your position. It can be used in a variety of situations, for instance:

  • Marking out an emergency landing zone on the ground,
  • Surprising and diverting the attention of your adversary,
  • Indicating an immediate danger: locating the presence of a suspect in a dark room without giving your position away,
  • Air drops: identification of parcels on impact with the ground,
  • Identification of torpedoes for faster withdrawal by the Navy

Available as visible and infrared versions, the 15 inch (40 cm) Impact light stick is the biggest in the Cyalume range, producing high-quality light in any situation. The ends are each fitted with a ring.

15” IMPACT (40cm) lightstick, the alternative to traditional lighting

A lightstick usually has to be twisted and shaken to light up. With the Impact 40cm light tube, the lightstick is activated on impact. Just throw the lightstick at the floor, a wall, or any other hard surface and it activates, producing instant light without any need to hold the stick in your hand.

This type of lighting is particularly handy in areas that are difficult to explore such as tanks, cavities, narrow places or in explosive confined spaces. Even near gases, oil or other explosive materials, the Impact 40cm lightstick can produce dependable risk-free light. This type of lighting, meeting confined space (ATEX) standards, can be used easily on sites to identify work, maintenance or repair zones.

The Impact 40cm light tube has closed attaching rings at each end, for attachment or hanging according to the specific needs.
