turism&travel : New cabin concepts on show at Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas

Thursday 01 September 2011

- The latest solutions to meet the needs of aircraft interiors buyers' will be very much in focus at Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas 2011, which will be held September 12 - 14 at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. Such is the appeal of the exhibition that all the booth space has been sold and there is a waiting list.

Highlights include AIM Aerospace which will be displaying a new business bar concept for Boeing B777's and Airbus A330's, with styling input from French industrial designers JCE. The company will also have its Front Row Furniture module, which is currently in service with Air China, on show. These units are being delivered on new B777-300's in support of B/E Aerospace's Diamond lie-flat seats.

In the galley equipment arena, Iacobucci HF Group will be demonstrating the MR4AA1 microwave. This new microwave is extremely light weighing in at only 14 kg when empty but has more than 12 litres of cavity capacity. There is no rotating plate which both saves on energy and reduces maintenance costs.

Meanwhile in the continuing search for ever lighter but cost effective seat and monument coverings, Perrone Aerospace will be showing its latest leather-alternative range - EnduraLite. Billed as economical, lightweight and a durable alternative to real leather, EnduraLite weighs 1.3 ounces per square foot - more than 50 percent lighter than traditional leather. The product looks and feels like leather and yet it is made using a 100 percent fire retardant polyurethane face and a proprietary blend of polyester backing which yields high levels of durability for years of service.

Exhibition Director, John Hyde, said: "Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas is now in its third edition and the response from industry has been amazing. The fact that every available square meter of booth space has been allocated is clear evidence of the robust nature of the North American cabin interiors market and the standing of this event."
