ST Engineering of Singapore will show- case for the first time, a long-haul Economy Class seat conceptual design. The new long-haul Economy Class seat will deliver up to 30 per cent weight savings, when compared to an identical seat structure built using aluminium.
This is due to ST Engineering’s use of a high-performance, proprietary magnesium alloy developed by its Land Systems sector. The new concept seat is also designed with parts maintainability and availability in mind.
An alternate method of manufacturing has been factored into the design and for plastic parts which are especially prone to passenger abuse or wear and tear, ST Engineering will cater for their replacement with additive manufactured parts.
Also, to make its show debut will be the world’s first expandable lavatory in an aircraft which has been designed to create greater accessibility and convenience for Persons with Reduced Mobility. ACCESS is an innovative design from ST Engineering and is the world’s first expandable Reduced Mobility (PRM) air- craft lavatory. ACCESS is a path-leading aircraft lavatory which can be expanded to become 40 per cent larger than a typical lavatory, offering passengers with reduced mobility greater access and ease of use.
The ACCESS lavatory uses a moving wall and can be retrofitted or line-fitted to narrow-body aircraft such as the A321 and B737. ST Engineering is the largest exhibitor at the show with over 100 exhibits on display.
