STG Aerospace has won a major new contract to supply Boeing with its next generation photoluminescent floor path marking system, saf-Tglo SuperSeal UltraLite (SSUL), for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
STG Aerospace has been supplying the photoluminescent floor path marking system to Boeing for the Next-Generation 737 for more than 16 years.
As a line fit option on the 787 Dreamliner fleet, saf-Tglo SSUL certified by EASA and the FAA for virtually every Boeing, Airbus and Embraer airplane model and enables the operators of multiple aircraft type fleets to have a common supplier for its emergency egress marking system. SSUL is 17 percent brighter and 70 percent lighter than the previous SSL system.
SSUL’s reduced profile also makes it an optimal match for modern lightweight carpets and with over 300 colour options, and unique blue-glowing and carpet PatternMatch options available, airlines are able to co-ordinate the system with their cabin colour scheme and corporate branding.
Marcus Williams, global sales and marketing director for STG Aerospace, commented: “This new contract to supply the production line for the 787 Dreamliner is another significant OEM contract win for us in recent months.”
STG Aerospace has been a supplier to Boeing since 2000 and over the years has won a number of supplier awards in recognition of its high performance aircraft cabin lighting technologies. This year, STG Aerospace has won its eighth consecutive Boeing Performance Excellence Award.
