Lufthansa Technik equips Bombardier CSeries with Guideline® ColourFit floor-path markings

Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has been selected by C&D Zodiac, one of the main suppliers for the Bombardier CSeries aircraft family, for the installation of Guideline® ColourFit. With this latest success, Lufthansa Technik's on board floor proximity lighting system has demonstrated again its leading position in the market of non-electric, maintenance-free emergency floor-path guidance systems.

C&D Zodiac is in charge for the design and production of the complete CSeries interior package. Lufthansa Technik will be responsible for the development and manufacturing of the floor proximity lighting system for the entire aircraft.

Christian Lierow, Head of Product Guideline® at Lufthansa Technik, said: "I am proud to say that we have succeeded to meet the criteria for the strict supplier selection process at C&D Zodiac. It is a great pleasure and an honor to furnish the new Bombardier CSeries in addition to the CRJ and the QSeries. This is another example of our commitment to designing and manufacturing innovative floor-path marking systems that will ensure our continued industry leadership."

Based on a photoluminescent principle, Guideline® ColourFit shows the way to emergency exits in the event of a failure of the cabin lighting system. The worldwide success of Guideline® ColourFit is based on several features: It is 100 percent failure-proof, has unlimited lifespan and is more luminescent than comparable products. Guideline® ColourFit has been granted Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) by the EASA and the FAA and can be installed on all commercial aircraft.

Since Guideline® ColourFit is available in various colours, it can be optimally adapted to the color scheme of aircraft carpeting and cabin furnishings. It only requires 15 to 30 minutes of cabin light to charge the system for a 12-hour flight. The material, which stores the light and then disperses it gradually, is non-radio-active, has low flammability and is entirely non-toxic. The light-storing process can be repeated infinitely. Other than routine cleaning, no maintenance is required.

The Guideline® product range comprises not only floor path marking systems but also exit signs. The exit signs work like the floor markings with photoluminescence. Unlike as the formerly used tritium signs they are recyclable, non-toxic and eco-friendly to dispose.
