STG Aerospace secures EASA approval for its saf-Tglo blu photoluminescent system for Airbus fleet

Posted 20 October 2016 · Add Comment

Cabin lighting company STG Aerospace has said that EASA has approved its latest photoluminescent floorpath marking system, saf-Tglo blu, for the following aircraft in the current Airbus fleet the A300, A310, A320, A330 and A340.

 

This is the first time that an emergency egress system using blue photoluminescence has been approved for use in any aircraft application. saf-Tglo blu provides a unique colour glow for operators of aircraft in the Airbus family and cabin designers alike preparing to modify or upgrade Airbus aircraft interiors. 

Engineered from the proven technology of the original and market-leading saf-Tglo photoluminescent range, the patented design of saf-Tglo blu emits a blue glow, a noticeable change from the traditional green glow that has always been associated with the product, and enables airlines to subtly transform cabin aesthetics via simple illumination without compromising passenger safety. 

In daylight, the body colour of saf-Tglo blu is whiter than the glow produced by traditional photoluminescent systems meaning that when it is used with any translucent film or overlay, the result is a truer, brighter, cleaner colour. In darkness, the glow has a calmer, softer, more reassuring quality whilst still performing the critical safety function the system provides.

The EASA approval process was executed using STG Aerospace’s own in-house Design Organisation Approval (DOA) procedures and, using its extensive in-service performance data, the company has been able to reduce the maintenance burden for airlines by minimising the requirement for inspections. saf-Tglo, saf-Tglo blu can be easily installed – typically by an airline’s own technical staff during an overnight shift. 

Sean O’Kell, director of innovation for STG Aerospace, said: “Securing EASA approval for saf-Tglo blu across the Airbus fleet obviously opens up exciting new marketing opportunities for us and we’re already in advanced negotiations with key launch customers. As a product, it symbolises our commitment to the continual evolution of the saf-Tglo range – always enhancing the aesthetics without in any way compromising on safety.”
