The Icarus™ 12 Gauge Bird Scaring Cartridge – Product Spotlight
31 October 2016
“Longer range, and an increase flight time and height all relate directly to a significant reduction in bird strike risk on and round your airfield. “
In early 2016, Bird Scaring by Primetake launched their highest performing bird scaring cartridge yet; the Icarus™ 12G.
The new cartridge boasts an array of enhanced performance characteristics such as a range of 115m ±10m – one of the highest on the market. The cartridge also utilises cleaner burning energetics which reduces weapon fowling yet greater pyrotechnic content maximises report generation and produces high levels of visible trace. The high performance and reliability of Icarus™ 12G raises the bar in the market of non-lethal pyrotechnic bird scaring cartridges and equips users with one of the most effective tools available to them. The Icarus™ 12G is designed for use in the Primetake Ltd supplied signal pistol.
Feedback of the product has been incredibly positive so far, Ian Whittaker Director of North West Bird Control who implements wildlife management and safety at airports across the UK discussed the benefits of the new cartridge:
“The Icarus bird scaring cartridge is what the industry has been waiting for; there is no other cartridge on the market that provides the same outstanding performance. The cartridge has a far-reaching deployment range that is unrivalled by comparative products, yet maintains superb reliability and safety.
Longer range, and an increase flight time and height all relate directly to a significant reduction in bird strike risk on and round your airfield.
Utilisation of this non-lethal cartridge means we can more effectively disperse birds from a wider area in a rapid yet cost effective way; ultimately further reducing the risk of bird strikes and strengthening airports wildlife management and safety.”
