STG Aerospace has announced that Icelandair has begun to upgrade its aircraft with their next generation safTglo photoluminescent, emergency floorpath marking system, SuperSeal UltraLite (SSUL).All of Icelandair’s Boeing 757 fleet are currently equipped with the previous safTglo SuperSeal Lite (SSL) system but following a December EASA approval, the airline has selected SSUL for their latest four aircraft additions with plans to retrofit the rest of the fleet later this year.
Launched by STG Aerospace in 1995, safTglo is currently used by over 300 airlines and installed on 9,000 aircraft worldwide. The next generations SSUL is 70% lighter than the previous version, 17% brighter and has a reduced profile that’s optimal for modern lightweight aircraft interiors.“It is highly gratifying for us that such a long-standing customer as Icelandair has decided to adopt our latest version of safTglo,” says Marcus Williams, STG Aerospace sales and marketing director. “Their decision is an important validation of our commitment to developing research-based cabin lighting solutions and constantly seeking to deliver an enhanced product offering.”
safTglo SuperSeal UltraLite has now been approved for Boeing 737s, 747s, 757s and 767s as well as the Airbus A320 series.
