For schools and clubs that value safety, the Gill Athletics HALO® Starting Device's international patent-pending ring design reduces the concern of guns at the track. 

Unlike traditional starting pistols that require costly blanks, the HALO® device is an electronic system that can connect wirelessly to the Wireless Speaker System and produce both the traditional bang sound and an audible tone.  Connect to the Multiple Speaker System to disperse sound above the decibel standard equally across the starting line.
