Aircraft window specialist ATG has been awarded contracts to supply its Powertech MS2 Window Shade Systems for two BBJ interior projects. Delivery of the two aircraft is slated for the third quarter.
Aerospace Technologies Group (ATG) is taking the art of aircraft window shades to a new level. The Boca Raton, Fla.-based company (Booth No. 995) is promoting its line of window shade systems for business aircraft. The line includes the electromechanical Powertech and Powertech 2 dual-pleated shade-and-rail systems and the latest product known as Panacea, which adds fourth-generation electrochromic technology.
W.M. Berg is featuring its simplified custom window shade assembly design here at Booth No. 813, highlighting 15 years of experience in motorized business jet window shade assembly applications.
The firm is emphasizing its “truly simple, three-component design.” In both manual and motorized variants, the shade assemblies include: a lead screw to transfer horizontal actuation to vertical shade movement with a motor for the motorized assembly; an upper pulley bearing assembly, replaced by shaft drive for the motorized assembly; and two belts.
Lou Martin & Associates of San Antonio, Texas, is offering three new window shade styles for business aircraft. One of these is a bulkhead shade system that can close off a cabin compartment to allow greater privacy, or open to permit a feeling of roominess. The shade can be customized to include artwork or a company logo and comes in a variety of sizes.
At the Aircraft Interiors Expo, Lou Martin & Associates introduced three new window shade styles. A dual mechanical shade features both blackout fabric and a sheer fabric, allowing the passenger to see out but block UV rays and heat, yet block light when complete darkness is desired. The E-3 shade incorporates an electrically dimmable window shade, integrated with the pleated blind for complete darkness.
The I-Shade cabin light management system has been picked by Nextant Aerospace for its 400Next upgrade of the Beechjet 400A.
The I-Shade “smart” windows will be integrated into the Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system on the 400Next “to create a seamless cabin environment management system.”
Lou Martin & Associates, a San Antonio-based supplier of cabin shell packages and window shading systems (Booth No. 4989), is now offering a “next-generation E3 Shade” that integrates the pleated variant with the dimmable window technology of InspecTech Aero Service.
Lou Martin & Associates has introduced what it calls its NT Pleated Shade system as the latest in its line of aircraft window shades. The new technology allows the passenger the choice of a full blackout shade, a full sheer position or a combination of blackout and sheer. The new shade uses the same fixed motor controller as other Lou Martin shade systems and is also available in a less costly mechanical version.
