STG Aerospace has launched what is claimed to be the world’s first and only blue-glowing flexible photoluminescent aircraft signage.
Ideal for emergency, informational and custom signs, the unique and patented saf-Tsign blu design combines top-class cabin aesthetics with an absolute focus on clarity and safety.
Further benefits include minimal maintenance and operational costs. Dr Sean O’Kell, STG Aerospace Business Unit director, said: “We’re really excited to be launching the world’s first flexible blue-glowing aircraft signage and cabin marking option. It’s not something you can announce every day. We are already talking to many major carriers about the extensive capability offering of saf-Tsign blu, looking at everything from seat markings and row numbers to galley and washroom signs.”
O’Kell continued: “With the new saf-Tsign blu, we’re expanding our portfolio, building on our traditional green-glowing signage to add a cool and soothing blue look. Blue signage will also be more ‘on-brand’ than green signage for many airlines and can be easily tailored to match airlines’ CMF palettes.
“Photoluminescent signs – in simple terms, ‘glow-in-the-dark’ signs – are 100% fail-safe with no running costs, which makes them perfect for commercial and military aerospace use. saf-Tsign blu signs, for example, are fully charged by cabin lighting in minutes. The look and operation of this new product line beautifully combines our design and engineering expertise. “Blue is a very calming and aesthetically pleasing colour,” added O’Kell.
“It’s relaxing and refreshing, with an output that won’t disrupt passengers in a darkened cabin. Naturally, therefore, it’s a colour we love and we already offer a blue setting for our liTeMood cabin lighting system and saf-Tglo blu FPM systems. This way we can offer a cohesive cabin aesthetic to customers.”
