Even the smallest elements make a significant impact when it comes to the functionality and fuel consumption of an aircraft. Incorporating lightweight components into interior
applications can improve usability, security and ergonomics, while reducing weight in overheard luggage bins, galley doors and seating headrests.
Recognizing that lightweight access hardware solutions enhance operation and influence passengers’ overall perceptions of airline quality, Southco has developed a short, three-minute video with SAE International that explains how to reduce application weight and enhance functionality with:
- Dual Point latching systems that provide redundant latching
- Positioning hinges that make lighter elements feel more substantial
- Electronic Latches that allow remote control access and monitoring
