Elimination of the seat pan or seat bottom diaphragm thanks to the integrated, self-supporting structure of the seat cushion
Easier inspection for damage or wear and greater ease of maintenance
Use of different foams for enhanced shock absorption and for use as a flotation device
High recyclability of the seat cushion due to easy separability of the components
The demands on the industry are well known: weight reduction in the equipment, aircraft industry-specific safety criteria, longer product lifetimes and easier recycling.
It is always amazing to see the innovative ways in which these goals are achieved. For example, integrating various functions or components in one structural element opens up significant potential for savings. The products decrease in weight and at the same time ensure that resources are used more efficiently.
In this respect, the Greiner structural cushion turns out to be an interesting option in the development of new seat structures. Thanks to its integrated, self-supporting structure, parts such as the seat pan or seat bottom diaphragm are no longer required. The most important benefit is much lower weight! The structural cushion additionally enables seat manufacturers to reduce the number of suppliers they use so that handling becomes easier overall.
The Structural Cushion can also be made with Greiner's new Germ Sentinel product line for greater hygiene in aircraft seats or with Greiner's lightweight foams.
