Our Products Help You Push Back Against The Elements
Fire And Water
UK products are designed to handle both with ease. Our customers fight sweltering structure fires, are the first to arrive at accident scenes, and perform lifesaving rescues in the most extreme conditions, be it freezing cold or scorching flame.
Having equipment they can trust is an absolute must. Thousands of firefighters and emergency technicians across the globe rely on UK. We construct each light, case, and accessory to offer the ultimate in dependability and durability.
Selecting A Fire Light
For a firefighter, it is vital to select a light that can endure high temperatures and heavy use, but is not too bulky. Generally, firefighting lights should have a non-metallic body to avoid burns on the skin. They should be easy to turn on and off with gloves, simple in design, lightweight and exceptionally bright. The light should also have a tight, focused beam that reduces the amount of reflected light back to user when looking through smoke, particulate, or water vapor.
Your best firelight also depends on the kind of firefighting you meet most often.
Ideal Fire Light Features:
• Non-Metal Material
• Easy To Use With Gloves
• Lightweight / Low Profile
• Focused/Narrow Beam
Helmet Mounted Lights
A hands-free light attached to a helmet is a key piece of equipment for any firefighter. The advantages of a helmet mounted light include the free use of your hands, the light always aiming at the direction you are facing, and increased visibility to others.
UK's primary helmet mounted lights include our 3AA and 4AA CPO and the Nitex Pro® Rechargeable. The NITEX comes with it's own helemt clip while the others need a Rylee Clip or Adjustable Stainless Steel clip to be attached to a fire helmet. The Nitex Pro is a rechargeable light, while the 3AA and 4AA lights use conventional, single-use batteries.
These lights are all waterproof, lightweight, highly durable and extremely bright. They each emit a tight, focused beam that cuts through even the thickest smoke and increases your visibility in areas with a lot of smoke, fog, or water mist.

Right Angle Lights
Many firefighters use right angle lights as their hands-free device, or as trusted backup lights. They can be mounted to the bunker coat or tied to the shoulder strap. UK right angle lights can rotate in any direction, giving you ability to see in front of you whether you are walking or crawling.
The UK Lighthouse right angle light is unique due to its magnetic base and second beam option.
Right angle lights are a suitable choice for many different types of firefighting. This includes EMT use or wildlands firefighting, where you may not use a standard fire helmet, or may go without a helmet.
Headlamps provide an eye-level light source that leaves your hands free for work and can be a strong choice for wildlands firefighting, or for EMT use.
The 3AAA eLED® Vizion™ Headlamp is the best in its class and fully waterproof. It has an adjustable beam, allowing the user to alternate between lighting up an entire scene and using a very tight beam. Whether worn on your head or placed on a helmet, the strap has a secure grip leaving your hands free for whatever your job demands, but is also lightweight and comfortable so you’ll barely notice it is there.
Secondary Backup Lights
Most firefighters would recommend carrying at least two lights, if not more, on all calls in case of a light failure. These should be safe, durable, waterproof lights that are certified for hazardous situations and will not let you down when you need them. A secondary light is a valuable item to have with you to help you find any lost items.
