STG Aerospace, the global leader in pioneering aircraft lighting technologies, has been awarded a contract to supply its market- leading safTglo® photoluminescent emergency floorpath marking system for the next generation of Embraer aircraft launching in 2017.
The safTglo® product range offers the best in class emergency floorpath lighting solution in terms of performance, design and through-life cost and is the system of choice for over 300 airlines, currently installed on more than 9,000 aircraft worldwide.
According to the company’s press release, the safTglo® system requires no power source, offers a significantly lower cost and lower weight alternative to electrical systems, and features unique fully-sealed design that substantially reduces maintenance and operational costs.
“STG Aerospace will be supplying Embraer with both safTglo® SuperSeal Lite (SSL) and its latest next generation system, SuperSeal UltraLite (SSUL), depending on the profile of carpets selected,” reads the press release.
“Both SSL and SSUL are available in different colour options, enabling a dramatic enhancement of cabin aesthetics with no compromise on safety.”
STG Aerospace said that in addition to fitting all new-build Embraer aircraft with safTglo®, it is also offering a discounted retrofit program to operators of existing Embraer aircraft to enable them to install the latest production standard systems and help them develop a unified brand image across their fleets.
“This is excellent news for STG Aerospace in becoming a Tier 1 supplier to yet another major manufacturer. Embraer’s decision to choose safTglo® for their new-build aircraft is a further validation of the product’s pre-eminent position in terms of cost, performance, safety and brand-enhancing cabin aesthetics,” said Marcus Williams, STG Aerospace’s Sales & Marketing Director.
