Yarwood Leather is launching a new product and service this year in Hamburg. Yarwood NT is the company’s latest lightweight genuine leather offering enhanced durability at a weight of only 420gsm. As genuine leather, it offers the same aesthetic appeal and sense of luxury that airlines have come to expect whilst reducing the average economy pax weight by approximately 1kg. On a maximum configuration A380, this has the potential to reduce weight by nearly 1 tonne.
Yarwood Leather will also introduce its Seat Cover Solutions service, which allows airlines to source leather seat covers from the manufacturers of the leather. This vertically integrated supply ensures that economical and fixed priced covers can be supplied in shorter lead times and with higher quality.
Vision Systems will showcase Noctis, the shading system designed for first and business class passengers. The system allows passengers to instantly and uniformly control the light and heat intensity entering the cabin. Ranging from very bright to blackout, the concept can be controlled by passengers directly at the seat or by the cabin crew thanks to Vision Systems cabin management system (CrewView) - the crew can synchronise multiple tintable windows at the same time. The system will be displayed in a Bombardier CSeries aircraft cabin mock-up. Noctis can be also be used as a solar protection or as a cabin divider, allowing areas of privacy.
TTF Aerospace will be promoting T-Skin to visitors. T-Skin is an abrasion resistant lining systems designed to improve the appearance of tired looking overhead stowage bins or prevent damage to new bins. The product is a multi-layered sheet and is assembled by a simple ‘peel and stick’ application. The normal procedure to repair, repaint and maintain stowage bins means taking the aircraft out of service and each repaint is a temporary fix lasting about 18 -24 months, burdening the airline with additional costs and the aircraft with additional weight that can equal hundreds of pounds. T-Skin is a lightweight sheet material and matched with the company’s custom adhesive system it offers the perfect balance of high performance and easy maintenance. Easily applied using sized die cut sheets, a whole 737-800 can be “re-finished” in about six hours and once installed, the panels present a new decorative finish bin interior to passengers.
T-Skin is intended to be removed, replaced and recycled eliminating weight growth to the aircraft and providing a lifetime of fresh, durable stowage bin interiors.
TriaGnoSys will use the exhibition to promote its AeroBTS+ product. AeroBTS+ is a versatile future-proof IFEC platform that can be used by commercial airlines and business jet operators across entire fleets to provide mobile phone and WiFi services, as well as wireless Video/Audio on Demand, and other cabin services, to passengers’ own devices. AeroBTS+ is all about the future, in which both passengers and crew will have access to a wide and growing variety of applications.

CCT Systems will showcase its Zonal Drying System which is designed to prevent condensation building up in the aircraft. The system minimises water accumulation in the passenger area, which is formed as warm cabin air rises and meets the cold outer fuselage skin, by feeding it through zonal dryer units between the cabin and outer skin of the aircraft using a specially designed piccolo duct. This lowers the dew point in the passenger area, preventing condensation and keeping the insulation blankets dry.
Celeste Industries recently introduced a colour coded programme of products to help keep cabin interiors clean, disinfected and deodorised in three easy steps. Celeste’s Interior Cleaner Complete 8500 (blue) is an all-purpose cleaner that leaves behind a protective barrier which not only enhances the efficacy of the disinfectant but also prevents what is known as the “grunge” factor. This is the gradual buildup of cleaning materials on hard surfaces that over time make surfaces look tired, worn and grungy. Step two – Sani-cide (red) - is the disinfection of areas prone to cross-contamination and the spread of germs. The third and final step – Biozyme EX3 (green) - leaves behind bio-enzymatic agents for long term odour control and the prevention of mould and mildew accumulation. While each product can be used independently, when used together, these three products offer a three-pronged attack to clean, disinfect and deodorise, and to make subsequent cleaning efforts quicker and easier.
Light-weight sandwich panel specialist CEL Components will have a selection of its core components and commercial grade panels on its stand.

Thales will be presenting new features to its award winning TopSeries AVANT System in Hamburg this year. This seat-centric IFE system includes the Smart Video Display Unit (SVDU Gen 4) which will be displayed with two new features. Hand gesture control technology provides an easy way to control and navigate through entertainment options with simply the wave of a hand; there’s no need to reach for a handset or to lean forward and touch a screen, passengers can just sit back and wave their hand in front of the seat display. The system will also demonstrate Smart Passenger Interface Modules (SmartPIMs) which enable passengers to connect a wide variety of portable devices – such as tablets and netbooks – allowing them to listen or to view their personal content on their own mobile device.
ITT Enidine will be demonstrating three new products its engineers have recently designed. The first tackles noise levels on board an aircraft. ITT’s noise control technology uses an elastomeric device – known as an isolator - that attaches the cabin interior to the frame of the aircraft; this can reduce sound levels by up to 6 dBA in some new aircraft types including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Isolators are fixed to areas such as the wall trim or cabin floor to the plane’s frame in strategic locations that are specified by ITT engineers, who study the specific cabin interior and aircraft frame and the subsequent forces acting on both, as well as taking into account the level and type of noise occurring inside and outside the aircraft during takeoff, flight and landing. The end result offers passengers a much quieter cabin experience.
ITT will also unveil its patent-pending stowage bin actuation technology; this enables stowage bins to open and close at the same smooth and consistent speed whatever the weight of the luggage inside. This is partly possible thanks to the company’s innovative mechanism that regulates the flow through the rate control’s piston head. ITT believes the introduction of this load-compensation mechanism in stowage bins is an industry first. Finally the company will be promoting its new Power Seat Actuation System ‘SkyMotion’ for premium class passenger seats.
First time exhibitor Lufthansa Systems will use Aircraft Interiors Expo to showcase its next generation in-flight entertainment solution, called BoardConnect. The system is based on a WiFi network which passengers can log on to through seat-back screens or their own laptops, tablet PCs, smart phones or other WiFi-enabled devices to access a wide range of content. While the installation of conventional IFE systems requires an extensive downtime of the aircraft, BoardConnect can be fitted during routine overnight layovers or maintenance checks; lengthy cables and some other components have been eliminated making the solution lighter. For an Airbus A340-600 with 380 seats, this would be a weight-saving of around 900 kilograms, equivalent to the weight of nine passengers; this corresponds to fuel savings of 47 tons per aircraft per year.
MacCarthy Aviation will feature a concept lavatory retrofit module on its stand at the exhibition this year. Working in partnership with Corian, MacCarthy Aviation has developed a lightweight and longer-lasting Corian sink and steel work top for B737, B767, A330 and A340 lavatories. These ready-to-fly products are a perfect solution to older stained and scratched Vericore models, and with removable sink basins they have lower maintenance lifecycle costs than more commonly used products. The company will also showcase its patented “Infant Safety Cradle” which is certified for turbulence to EASA 21J. There are two variants of the cradle suitable for all Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with a maximum carry weight of 11kg. Each includes a five point safety harness and can be used in a sitting or lie flat position and packs away into a small stowable bag.
Intelligent Avionics will be presenting the latest addition to its seat-centric IFE system, AURA Works, which was launched at the exhibition last year. New for this year’s event is AURA One, a lightweight, fast and inexpensive way to replace an aircraft’s analogue (tape drive) systems with cutting edge digital IFE. AURA One promises airlines better-quality video and audio for passengers as well as a broader range of content and services without the need to change existing overhead screens or wiring. Content can be refreshed quickly and easily with secure MPAA-approved processes via a hard-drive swap with daily updates via a USB stick or 3G/4G modem. Later this year Intelligent Avionics will also introduce AURA Connected. This is a lightweight, wireless intranet system that offers passengers an extensive range of content, advertising and digital products and services streamed direct to their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
Airline fabric expert Tapis is introducing Ultraleather BOLERO which it believes sets a new standard for sound absorption. The company claims that, during independent testing, Ultraleather BOLERO outperforms fabrics and genuine leather in sound absorption by improving low and mid frequency absorption, which significantly reduces cabin noise. Lower noise radiation and higher sound transmission loss leads to lower cabin noise and higher sound quality, offering more privacy for passengers and crew, as well as less mental and physical fatigue for everyone on board. The product has passed the most stringent commercial aviation standards but without sacrificing luxury, durability and maintainability. The Ultraleather range of products is made from polyurethane polycarbonate, which Tapis says is superior to vinyl and other less reliable polyurethane blends. All are environmentally-friendly and don’t contain the volatile plasticisers and stabilisers found in vinyl. Typical interiors applications include outer and inner back shells, footwells, literature pockets, console shelves, centre dividers, seating, headliners, bulkheads, sidewalls and head rests.
B/E Aerospace will display a selection of new and innovative products at this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo. Its Essence Inserts Collection, which includes a wide selection of beverage makers, ovens and chiller products, has been designed to be more ergonomic and user-friendly for cabin crew as well as featuring improved product performance. Airlines will also benefit from its reduced weight and an increase in power efficiency.
Products from this range will be displayed on the B/E Aerospace stand in an A350 galley configuration, which will be operational and preparing food. The company will also be promoting its Modular Lavatory System (MLS,) which was recently selected for installation on Boeing’s 737 Next-Generation aircraft as well as the 737 MAX.
The MLS utilises the company’s patent pending Spacewall technology which frees up floor space in the cabin, creating the opportunity to add up to six incremental passenger seats on each aircraft. It also includes B/E Aerospace’s technologically advanced vacuum toilet, LED lighting and lavatory oxygen system and is designed to increase airline revenue and yields while substantially improving the lavatory environment. The first deliveries will be for Delta Airlines’ new-buy 737s in the third quarter of 2013.
To combat the phenomenon of excessive condensation that can occur in aircraft, Liebherr-Aerospace has recently introduced a new air dryer system which it will be showcasing in Hamburg. Excessive condensation can move from within the cabin into the insulating material of the aircraft skin – leading to a number of potential problems such as corrosion, electrical failure and the need to prematurely replace insulation blankets.
Condensation can also increase the weight of aircraft impacting on fuel consumption and increasing CO2 emissions. Highly reliable and light weight, the Liebherr air dryer system is a patented cabin solution that avoids condensation through the injection of dry air which is generated by the air conditioning packs, electrically heated by a dedicated controlled heater and then distributed via piccolo distribution ducts. The system can be used on its own or in combination with humidifier systems from Liebherr.
