Vision Systems' barrier solution gets EASA nod

By Rick Lundstrom

By allowing passengers in the middle seat, Vision Systems says the Quick-Split can pay for itself after seven narrow body flights

Vision Systems announced today its separation solution for aircraft passenger seats, Quick-Split, is fully compliant with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) requirements and thus is officially aeronautics certified.

The Quick-Split aims at avoiding contact and possible transmission of viruses between passengers. The solution widely participates in restoring passenger confidence while maximizing the seat load factor.

“Quick-Split reduces the anxiety of the passengers and gives them confidence in air transport. The solution is based on a proven technology, it is certified, and ensures an economically viable operation for the airline.” concluded Jérôme Monvaillier, Managing Director of Vision Systems in today’s announcement.

Placed at each seat, the physical barrier separates persons seated in the aircraft. During rest times, security remains the same as the system follows the inclination of the seat back when reclined. The divider can easily be folded for family travel as well.

Quick-Split is a thin and soft transparent film that keeps a feeling of space for a better wellbeing in the cabin. It also includes two handles, one on each side to avoid two persons touching the same one.

For the airline, Quick-Split can help the decision not to leave an empty seat between two passengers. The system is fixed on the armrest and behind the seat back, is quick and easy to mount and dismantle without any modification of the existing seat, and is adaptable to all types of armrests. Quick-Split does not generate any additional vibration or rattling noise. Light and compact, the solution remains discreet and does not clutter up the cabin space or view. It is robust to guarantee its durability, and flexible to sustain the passenger’s movements and constraints. A tested anti-germ treatment applied on the product reduces the cleaning maintenance. The solution enables the airline to make all its seats available for sale and to benefit from a reassuring image.

Vision Systems estimates that with the additional passengers the Quick-Split can be paid for after seven flights in a narrow-body aircraft.

Vision Systems’ partner Aerotec performed the EASA certification program and approval on this product. “Quick-Split is a reliable product, easy to operate. It has been designed and qualified to ensure compliance with latest EASA safety standards” stated Thomas Paquien, Program Manager, Deputy Head of Airworthiness, Aerotec.
