What is SoftWall?
MGRSoftWall® is a vertical “soft to touch” seat shell liner, designed to enhance the sleeping experience during flight. The emotional transition from sleeping “sitting up” to sleeping “lying down” is dramatic and passengers expectations increase exponentially. Touching hard or cold surfaces whilst sitting up can be tolerated, but not when sleeping lying down.
Where is SoftWall Used?
Soft and pleasing to the touch, it is ideal for any area that needs a more human feel. MGRSoftWall® vertical panels cocoon the passenger from the hard surfaces of the seat surround. MGRSoftWall® has the added benefit of deadening the aircraft interior noise and is available in a wide range of covering materials including fabrics, faux leather and aramid/Nomex.
The Advantages of SoftWall
Luxury soft touch feel
Passes OSU heat release and smoke
Easily installed and removed
Wide range of decorative options
Can accommodate complex 3D shapes
Complex patterns and shapes can be cut using a flat bed 3 axis router. This enables the production of be-spoke panels with unique patterns, to be de-bossed into the decorative covering.
Flammability, Smoke Density, Toxicity & Heat Release (OSU)
MGRSoftWall® utilises carefully selected material combinations to optimise FST performance. Working with airlines, design houses and OEMs, MGR can provide guidance on decorative material selection and combinations in order to meet EASA/FAA regulations.
MGR Foamtex’s in house flammability department works closely with customers in developing test plans, as well as arranging the test coupon manufacture and testing.
