What are Sky Lanterns?
Sky Lanterns are made of non-flammable, biodegradable material. This is the environmental friendly product which is also a great alternative to fireworks. By flying sky lanterns, people can still enjoy their beauty without having the guilt or harming animals and the environment on their conscience.Although sky lanterns are often released in large numbers, they are equally as joyous when released one at a time. To see the light ascend high above the earth and then vanish into darkness is to inspire wonder in the hearts of young and old alike. Eco sky lanterns help people enjoy the rich tradition of sky lanterns without leaving behind toxic materials after the fun is over.
Sky Lanterns are not suitable for use by persons under 18 years of age.
In order to protect yourself and third parties, when using the Sky Lanterns you must follow these safety instructions and the operating instructions. Please exercise diligence by using common sense when handling flammable components.
Only launch Lanterns if the wind is below 7 miles per hour. If there is light wind, determine its direction. Ensure that when launched, the Sky Lanterns do not represent a danger by flying into or over dry forests, buildings, roads, airports or electricity pylons.
Do not use if under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Do not launch a torn or damaged Sky Lantern.
If you intend to organise a mass Sky Lantern launch we recommended that you inform the relevant local authorities.
Always avoid possible fire hazards. Do not use during prolonged periods of dry weather. Please dispose of the packaging materials carefully and responsibly.
Frequently asked questions about Sky lanterns:
1. Is launch permission required?
In most cases, no, but it would be advisable to contact your local authorities including the coast guard, for advice on possible regulations.
Do not use near main roads or in area where Sky Lanterns could be misinterpreted as a distress signal.
Important: The use of Sky Lanterns abroad must be approved by the local authorities of the country in question. The user in the respective country is responsible for following the set safety guidelines and regulations.
2. What is the most appropriate launch site for the Sky Lanterns?
We recommend using Sky Lanterns in a clear open space free from obstructions, i.e. power cables, trees or buildings. For maximum visibility, a clear sky is preferable. Keep away from sites with flammable gases and liquids.
3. What are the suitable weather conditions for launching Sky Lanterns?
Best Conditions, for launching: Still weather conditions with little wind. A maximum wind force of 2 on the Beaufort scale (4 - 7 miles per hour) must not be exceeded at the time of launching the lanterns, due to the risk of the lantern flying off course.
We do not recommend using Sky Lanterns when it is raining. Light precipitation/drizzling may still allow Sky Lanterns to fly, but we strongly discourage using them in heavy downpours.
4. What can be used to write on the Sky Lanterns?
For best results, we recommend using a large felt-tip pen on a flat, even surface, free from dirt and moisture. This is to ensure that the paper does not tear when written upon. To ensure best results minimal pressure should be applied.
5. How high do the Sky Lanterns fly, and for how long?
One Sky Lantern burns and flies for approximately 5 - 10 minutes, in optimal weather conditions, the Sky Lanterns can reach heights between 200m and 500m. Factors affecting Sky Lanterns flight include: Size of lantern, Size of heat source (fuel cell), Ambient temperature at launch site (Ground Degrees Celsius/Fahrenheit), Temperature fluctuations at various heights above launch site (Air Temperature), Location of Launch site (valley, mountain, launch site shaded by wind etc), Wind speed and direction at launch site (Ground), Wind speed and direction above launch site (In Air).
6. What happens once the fuel source has been exhausted?
Once the Fuel Cell has expired, there is no flame or fuel material left, so the lanterns float gently back to the Earth. Falling Lanterns with extinguished fuel cell pose no fire risk.
The Sky lantern and fuel cell may in no way be modified or altered from its original state.
Sky Lanterns are made from biodegradable materials; Rice or Mulberry paper, on a frame, which means they decompose in the shortest of times.
Please adhere to the safety guidelines and instructions laid out before you at all times.
