Eagleville, PA — October 22, 2018 — Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting for firefighting uses, has introduced the Vantage® II helmet light, a low-profile, lightweight, tactical flashlight that attaches in seconds to Gallet® F1 XF fire helmets. The new hands-free light, which is powered by a single lithium battery, delivers a powerful 350 lumens, and combines a safety taillight so firefighters can navigate or be followed in even the thickest smoke.
The Vantage II attaches to Gallet fire helmets through the use of a special mount that is designed to work with the helmet’s mounting bracket. Its ultra-bright blue rear light enables firefighters and rescue workers to be seen in smoke-filled rooms, blackout conditions and other emergency situations regardless of which direction the light is shining.
“The Vantage II is the next generation of hands-free lighting tools for the fire service,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “Its ultra-compact size and taillight feature, along with its powerful lumen output, make it the perfect hands-free flashlight for firefighting personnel who require extreme brightness. Firefighters can easily attach or remove it from the mounting bracket on Gallet helmets without the need for tools. They also can rotate the flashlight 360 degrees to shine the light where it’s needed most.”
The Vantage II features a power LED for maximum illumination and two modes, high and low. Its textured parabolic reflector produces a smooth beam hotspot with optimum side illumination to aid in navigation. On high, the light delivers 350 lumens and 3,500 candela over a beam distance of 118 meters, while providing a run time of two hours and fifteen minutes. It offers an extended run time of five hours on the low setting, while providing 135 lumens and 1,700 candela over 80 meters.
The new flashlight is powered by a single 3-volt CR123A lithium battery, and is operated by a large, easy access pushbutton switch at the rear of the flashlight. The switch features a blue taillight LED to ensure users can be seen from behind. The taillight also can be configured to flash mode to aid in signaling purposes. The light also includes a safe off feature, locking it so it cannot be turned on accidentally.
Featuring a body constructed of 6000 series machined aluminum with a black anodized finish, the Vantage II uses a lens that is made of high-temperature, shock-mounted and impact-resistant BOROFLOAT® glass. The light is IPX7 rated, and is waterproof to one meter for 30 minutes. It also is impact-resistance tested to one meter.
The Vantage II is also available in U.S. Fire and Industrial models. Each model has an MSRP of $150.00 and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
