Innovations for Customers
Innovations / new developments for a new future-oriented aircraft cabin is one of our most important challenges for the future of a new aircraft cabin generation. We are constantly seeking new features to innovate tomorrow´s aircraft cabin. By collaborating with innovative companies and start-ups within the field, we offer creative solutions and products.
In the civil aviation industry, "customized cabin " is THE flagship of each airline.
The one aspect is high-quality cabin components that are unique, and present the philosophy of the airliners to their passengers.
Another aspect is hygiene in the area of the washrooms on the plane. In recent years, innovative ideas have been found at relevant trade fairs, but they have not yet been implemented. The theme "touchless lavatory " is only one aspect here - but in our opinion an extremely important one. The door in particular is still not fully automated and works without contact. Series-ready components such as faucet and waste flap already exist, but are rarely found, and their function is often flawed.
The time of the Covid-19 pandemic shows us that hygiene is becoming increasingly important, especially in a small area like in the aircraft and its lavatory. Discussions with customers have shown us, that a touchless system is very much in demand by almost everyone; and not just since the pandemic.
Our most interesting new project: "Touchless lavatory door"
We have decided to give our full support to this issue, and have made a decisive invention in the field "touchless operating". An approved patent has already been filed for this system. In the development of this touchless application, we see the enormous vote of easy integration into all kinds of cabin modules, and above all the possibility of easy integration into retrofit modules. That is the real advantage in our view.
The most important thing to remember here is the Module "aircraft lavatory door", because touchless is probably the most interesting application in terms of hygiene. This concept is not only functional, but also safe from malfunctions. One example could be a passing trolly, or another person by trying to open the door, who could cause an accidental opening of the toilet door. Furthermore, this touchless door opening is extremely intuitive for the passenger to handle. Both inside and outside. Unlocking the door in an emergency case was of course also taken into account. The system is modular, so that additional functions can be controlled via the same interface.
In our opinion, this concept is the missing important building block for a holistic implementation of a contactless system.
This year we are aiming for approval for aviation.
