During the 2012 Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), Schneller introduced PanGuard – a revolutionary new lavatory flooring solution combining the well-known benefits of Schneller Non-Textile Flooring products with the protection of a formed floor pan into a seamless, custom integrated solution.
PanGuard was developed when Delta approached Schneller to help them ease the lavatory cleaning process. Delta was looking for a way to minimize the possibility of moisture becoming trapped between the flooring and the floor pan.
After exploring several options, Schneller was selected to create a hybrid product that would combine the non-textile flooring product with the floor pan into one, integrated solution. The finished product – PanGuard – not only achieves the original objective set forth by Delta but also results in additional benefits:
- Eliminates the possibility of trapped moisture between the non-textile flooring and the floor pan
- Improves the overall aesthetics of the lavatory with seamless, high definition flooring designs
- Reduces the weight of each lavatory by at least 1kg
- Minimizes supply chain delays and installation costs through a one-step solution
Based on the success of initial installations, Delta Air Lines plans to have PanGuard installed across its entire fleet by mid-year 2012.
PanGuard is the latest addition to Schneller’s wide-ranging non-textile flooring portfolio and will be available to all aftermarket customers with extensive aesthetic options. Customers can see PanGuard formed by Magee Plastics Company. on display in TIMCO’s FeatherWeight™ lavatory unit at its stand 5E20 at AIX. In addition, please contact your Schneller representative or Diane Geisler for an appointment to see a PanGuard integrated floor pan as formed by Triumph Interiors at the Schneller Meeting Room Hall 6 Room SE50 at AIX.
