STG lights the way with next-gen floor path marking
Aircraft cabin lighting company STG Aerospace is launching the next generation of its saf-Tglo® photoluminescent system at MRO Europe from October 16 to 17.
SSUL-X is the first photoluminescent emergency floor path system with edge-to-edge color that helps eliminate visible unappealing borders. It offers a range of colors to match airline brands and cabin color schemes, including red for the first time, and comes in a choice of matte or gloss finish. The new customizable SSUL-X is easy to install (it takes less than one hour to install for 737-800 aircraft). The SSUL-X builds on STG Aerospace’s range of environmentally friendly, non-powered photoluminescent floor path marking products that are available for all aircraft types.
“We’re really excited to be launching the world’s first edge to edge red floor marking option. We are already talking to many major carriers about the extensive capability offering of saf-Tglo® SSUL-X, looking at everything from seat markings to branding and PatternMatch,” said Sean O’Kell, Business unit Director at STF Aerospace, in a release from the company.
He added: “As we continue to shape illumination, making flying safer and more cost-effective than ever before, the launch of saf-Tglo® SSUL-X proves we remain committed to innovation. We’re so excited to be playing our part in taking the aerospace industry forward.”
STG has EASA DOA, POA and FAA PMA approvals, allowing it to “take ideas then design, develop, certify and supply them, all under one roof,” according to the release. “This puts STG in a strong position so that when we work on new and interesting projects, we can obtain that market feedback from the key stakeholders to ensure we are developing the right products.”
