Wylie, Texas – Oct 2019 – Listening to feedback from fire departments who need a rugged, lightweight, hands-free lighting solution with a powerful piercing beam, Nightstick created the NSP-4640B FORGE and XPP-5465R IS FORGE helmet lights.

The new black Nightstick FORGE™ and red safety-certified FORGE™ IS helmet lights provide firefighters a more powerful 360-lumen spotlight and Nightstick’s exclusive integrated 360-degree multi-angle pivoting brim mount with the universal clamp. These two helmet lights provide bright, useable downward light that while walking reduces slips, trips or falls, and when angled forward cuts through heavy smoke when operations move to involved areas on the fireground.

Both feature multi-function operation from a single rear-mounted push button that glows green as a follow-me light. Generating 360 lumens on high for 4.5 hours, 180 lumens on medium for 6.5 hours and a 25-lumen Survival Mode for 30 hours, these lights will burn bright for extended on-scene needs. The powerful focused beam illuminates objects up to 218 meters on high, giving firefighters immediate situational awareness and size-up capability when arriving on scene. Constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum, hard coat anodized and featuring a black or red powder coated body, the lights were designed to perform in the most extreme firefighting environments.

 “With the combination of our exclusive 360-degree pivoting mount and 360-lumens, firefighters are no longer limited to a fixed position, low-output light source for their helmet,” says Russell Hoppe, Marketing Director for Nightstick. “Our first responders should not be worrying about unintentionally blinding colleagues while working together. They need to be able to aim their light when and where they need it to do their job safely. These lights feature a large, ergonomic push-button switch which glows green as a firefighter “follow me” indicator for increased safety and confidence. The design and engineering behind our latest NSP-4640B FORGE and XPP-5465R FORGE IS lights reflects our ongoing commitment to providing robust and fireground-tough lighting products for our first responders, because life depends on light.”

The XPP-5465R FORGE IS is certified Class I Division 2 intrinsically safe for hazardous environments, and both lights are IP-67 rated dustproof/waterproof while meeting the requirements of NFPA-1971-8.6 (2013). Both models are powered by two included CR123 batteries, include an Allen key to tighten the universal mount clamp and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
