FALCON® ECO SAFETY HORN SET FOR LAUNCH

ECO HORN TO FEATURE LOWEST POSSIBLE GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL

Branchburg, NJ (October 25, 2011) – Falcon Safety Products, leading manufacturer of safety, sport and marine signal horns, proudly announces the launch of its non-flammable ECO Safety Horn– the ECO Sonic. Falcon Safety Products is proud to be one of the first U.S. manufacturers to utilize this revolutionary new propellant; a move that is in keeping with the company’s long history of environmentally conscious manufacturing choices. The ECO Sonic uses the same formulation as products released by Falcon earlier this year throughout Europe that have been well received in Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, and UK among other countries.

“We are very excited to be the first to offer such an environmentally advanced product to our safety market,” said Phil Lapin, president/CEO for Falcon Safety Products. “As a market leader, Falcon has historically set the bar in terms of quality, reliability, and environmental consciousness. This new ECO safety horn is a testament to our market leadership position and our commitment to environmental responsibility. More importantly, it allows our retailers to offer a more environmentally-friendly alternative to a customer base for whom environmental sustainability is critically important .”

The non-flammable ECO horn will provide consumers with access to the very latest in compressed-gas technology. While the new propellant utilized in this new product is more complex and costly to manufacture, it will satisfy the demand of a significant and growing segment of the consumer market that is willing to pay a premium for products that contribute to greater environmental benefit. A new, colorful and “green” can design with the “ECO” name prominently positioned on the primary graphic panel highlights the environmentally-sensitive platform and distinguishes the product on retail shelves.

The launch of the ECO Sonic enables Falcon to expand its already sizeable product range and continue to lead the industry in promoting environmental accountability. The non-flammable ECO horn, along with a handful of new Dust-Off ECO products, will feature a GWP (global warming potential) rating of 6 – a rating that is 99.5% lower than any other non-flammable horn on the market. This new offering from Falcon represents a noteworthy improvement in terms of safety and environmental impact.

To achieve this extremely low GWP number, Falcon’s product specialists worked with product engineers from Honeywell, a global leader in next-generation fluorocarbon technology, to introduce Honeywell’s non-flammable HFO-1234ze tetrafluropropene propellant into the Dust-Off line.

Available in the United States, the ECO Sonic will initially be available only in a 5oz offering, which will carry a suggested retail price of $37.99. Plans are underway to offer the ECO horn in a variety of sizes in the near future.
