When scuba diving, spot your divers with the help of our products.
The Cyalume glow stick is ideal for keeping track of your diving team when you are on a group outing. You can see each of the divers who work alongside you in sometimes dark or turbulent waters. You can even choose one colour per diver to tell them apart, which can be very difficult on a typical outing; especially at greater, darker depths Thanks to the fluorescent light of our glow sticks, you need never lose your team members again.
This is even more pertinent during underwater fishing sessions when using harpoons and other underwater weapons: you must be absolutely sure where the other divers are to avoid a terrible accident.
Sailing: in many countries a clear way to identify all of your crew members is mandatory.
Cyalume helps you meet these legal requirements for safety on-board, which have recently been tightened up to improve emergency procedures at sea.
Many countries require an individual light device for each passenger as well as on the boat itself (those with a hull length of 24 metres or less) to ensure they are visible at all times. Cyalume enables you to perfectly meet the requirements of these regulations.
Many do not know what equipment they will need on-board in case of an emergency. Official regulations adapt to the latest developments in yachting such as the need to have appropriate means of communication with other vessels operating in your area as well as making crew responsible for their own safety. One of the major challenges is to ensure that all crew members are fully aware of safety protocols and competent to implement them on board.
The easiest solution is adding a Cyalume stick to each life jacket as it is both at hand in the time of need and economical; the 15cm Snaplight glow stick lasts 5 years as long as it is well preserved in its original packaging so your initial outlay goes a long way! It can be easily attached or slipped into the life jacket pocket and in the case of a man overboard, the glow stick is easily activated and the person who fell into the water will be very easily spotted even from a distance. The Cyalume glow stick is visible from 1.6 km and up to 4.8 km from the sky.
The SOS distress signal may also be an alternative. With a rigid shell, this special glow stick is more protected from blows. It is also equipped with a cord that will allow the person to twirl the stick and create a luminous circle. Lovers of small crafts will appreciate the durable casing of our glow sticks. They can withstand high impact, even if you were to capsize !

Cyalume glow sticks: your essential running companion
Using luminous safety equipment when hunting can be very useful in many situations. The glow sticks provide you with intense, long-lasting light for good visibility on hunting grounds.
Hunting often begins in September and continues until the end of winter. During this period, the weather conditions are not always perfect and rain, fog and mist are your main hunting companions. And that’s without counting the fact that the days are much shorter at this time of year.
With a bright glow stick, hung either by a hook or a carabiner on your jacket, you will be visible from very far away: the intense light emanating from the stick displays your presence to other hunters. You can also use the glow stick by attaching it to your gun dog’s collar so that you don’t lose sight of him and so that he too can be recognised by other hunters as a friend, not foe. You may also want to consider our ultra-flat and ultra-light Visipad device that can be stuck on your clothes with its self-adhesive side and emits an orange light to show your position in the dark, making it a perfect alternative to our traditional glow sticks.
