STG Aerospace is delighted to announce that its latest saf-Tglo® blu photoluminescent floorpath marking system has won the prestigious APEX Award for Best Cabin Innovation at the 2016 APEX Awards ceremony.
The ceremony was held during the APEX EXPO 2016 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on 24th October 2016 and was judged by a panel of industry peers including APEX members from airlines, hardware and software companies, distributors, aircraft manufacturers and media. The APEX EXPO is the premier venue for airlines and vendors to showcase new products and innovations that will improve the airline cabin environment and enhance the air travel experience.
saf-Tglo blu® is the world’s first blue glowing photoluminescent floor path marking system, based on the proven technology of the original industry leading saf-Tglo® range. For the first time ever airlines and aircraft cabin designers can introduce an alternative glowing colour within the cabin interior, harmonizing perfectly with the latest LED mood lighting interiors. Whilst obviously a significant visual enhancement, the origins of the product are actually based in science and specifically the results of human perception analysis. These show that the blue wavelengths of emitted light enable enhanced passenger perception of the emergency track with a dark adapted human eye.
Having won the prestigious award for Best Cabin Innovation, competing with finalists American Airlines and Virgin Australia, STG Aerospace was also a finalist in the Best Passenger Comfort Innovation category for its new, patented square-light beam LED reading light.
Nigel Duncan, STG Aerospace’s Chief Executive, commented:
“Winning an APEX Best Cabin Innovation award underlines our commitment to stand out as leaders in cabin lighting innovation, with the goal of improving the passenger experience by enhancing cabin aesthetics whilst offering beautiful solutions that reduce operational and maintenance costs.”
The elite list of companies that won APEX awards in other categories includes American Airlines, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, Etihad, Reaktor and Air Canada.
