To mark and delimit an area at night, Cyalume glow sticks are used to signpost and mark areas effectively.

In the dark, find your bearings using ground lighting

In dark environments, inside or out, where visibility is very low, the use of Cyalume glow sticks will allow you to quickly define a terrain, an area, a perimeter for more security or simply to light the area.

Diving: Marking of instruments and lifelines with glow sticks

During your diving activities, you can attach the glow sticks to the various instruments – such as regulators, instrument consoles, ropes, anchor ropes and moorings, the boat’s wheel, bail-out bottles etc. in order to easily locate them, especially at night.

Importantly, you may need to locate the distance line, also known as the lifeline, while diving at anytime of the day. Tracking and night marking is an essential safety factor for each diver. This allows other boats to see the perimeter in which you are diving thus not crossing your path.

Boating: the Cyalume stick used on your boat to show your anchored position

In order to be seen by other boats, especially at night when visibility is reduced or in foggy weather, you need a clear, reliable signal. Cyalume sticks are perfect for this when dropping anchor at sea as this will prevent you from using the boat’s batteries when the engine is not running, avoiding draining them. In this case, it is advisable to place 6” Snaplight 15cm white glow sticks on the perimeter of the boat and a 40cm Non-Impact white glow stick on the mast head. Their 8 hour glow time will allow you to relax for the whole night without having to use your batteries to mark your position.

This is especially useful for fishing boats that must be clearly visible when frequently dropping anchor at sea. As a precaution, always have extra glow sticks in addition to those required by regulations to ensure that you always have extra light if necessary.

It is important to remember that at night, it is necessary to see where you are going but also for others to know you are there.
