EASA has approved STG Aerospace’s latest photoluminescent floorpath marking system, saf-Tglo blu, for the A300, A310, A320, A330 and A340.
This is the first time that an emergency egress system using blue photoluminescence has been approved for use in any aircraft application. saf-Tglo blu provides a unique colour glow for operators of aircraft in the Airbus family and cabin designers alike preparing to modify or upgrade Airbus aircraft interiors.
Sean O’Kell, director of innovation for STG Aerospace, commented, “Securing EASA approval for saf-Tglo blu across the Airbus fleet obviously opens up exciting new marketing opportunities for us and we’re already in advanced negotiations with key launch customers. As a product, it symbolises our commitment to the continual evolution of the saf-Tglo range – always enhancing the aesthetics without in any way compromising on safety.”
