Aug. 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Benefits include enhanced rigidity when incorporated into the seat unit and a weight saving of over 25% per tray. Taking the example of a 210 seat Airbus 320, this equates to an overall weight reduction of 42Kg per aircraft. An initial order for 3,500 trays has already been placed to support a leading airline.

Design enhancements have been achieved through the innovative use of vacuum formed plastic mouldings, reduced metal content in support slides and a new printing process. Using advanced print technology from RACE Completions, also a STAG Group company, a permanent, tamper proof image is achieved with direct printing into the mouldings to a depth of up to 0.25mm. Enhanced visibility of messages or graphics is a benefit and costs / inventory are reduced as additional labelling during aircraft fit out is not required. Applications include over-wing exit seats where emergency exit instructions are printed directly into the seat back tray.

All materials used in the tray unit comply with Section 25.853 of Part 25 of the FAR requirements including smoke toxicity.

As well as its own portfolio of products and services for aircraft interiors, the STAG Group Aircraft Interiors Division represents the following manufacturers: LORD Corp., Actron Manufacturing, Davis Aircraft Products, Parasol Aviation, Saint Louis Designs, Wollsdorf Leather, SELA Aircraft Lighting Systems, GAMA Infant Seat and The Young Engineers.
