Desso Carpet in first Boeing 787 Dreamliners for European market

European carpet manufacturer Desso has equipped the cabins of the first four of in total eight Boeing 787 Dreamliners with an especially for 787 developed 100% wool Wilton woven carpet (patent pending). The airplanes are operated by UK-based Thomson Airways, part of international travel group TUI AG. It is the first delivery of the 787 Dreamliner to an airline in the UK and only the second European airline. Desso delivered its popular Wilton carpet with a self-adhesive back, providing maximum flatness and a perfect fit in the airplane's cabins.

Highest standards

Alexander Collot d'Escury, CEO Desso: “The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an impressive aircraft. We are very pleased to contribute to its' elegant interior with a product of the highest standards, both in terms of design as in functionality.” Desso works closely together with the airline industry to deliver innovative products and designs that fit the rules and regulations of the aviation industry. Nathan Jansen, Sales Director Aviation: “The self-adhesive backing of the Boeing 787 is an excellent example of how we develop products that suit the needs of the market. It enables easier handling and installation as it eliminates the need for tape, but also easier removal as it doesn't leave any residue to the floor panels when removed.”

Although initially developed for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the self-adhesive backing can now be applied to all carpets that are available at Desso, meaning that it is available in nylon, wool and a blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon, with unlimited design possibilities.

International certification

The new self-adhesive carpet made Desso one of only a few Boeing 787 Dreamliner approved carpet suppliers. This certification is in line with earlier achievements in this regard: in May 2011 the company was certified to the AS 9100 Revision C as the first carpet manufacturer in the world. Desso is therefore fully AS 9100, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.
