Lufthansa Technik offers optimized Guideline® ColourFit floor-path marking system for galleys

At the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2010 Lufthansa Technik has presented the latest development of its Guideline® ColourFit non-electric emergency floor-path guidance system. Due to the minimal height of 2.3 mm the new Guideline® ColourFit fits in every non textile door on board and is especially certified for galleys.

Based on a photoluminescent principle, Guideline® ColourFit shows the way to emergency exits in the event of a failure of the cabin lighting system.

Christian Lierow, Head of Product Guideline® at Lufthansa Technik, said: "This latest example of our commitment to design and manufacture innovative floor-path marking systems has been developed especially for the on-board galley zones. Due to security reasons in the galley area the normal carpet floor is replaced by a special non textile floor which normally is only 2 mm high. Therefore our new Guideline® version fits perfectly in this environment."

The worldwide success of Guideline® ColourFit is based on several features: It is 100 percent failure-proof, has unlimited lifespan, is maintenance free 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 15 colours, it can be optimally adapted to the colour 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 the formerly used tritium signs they are recyclable, non-toxic and eco-friendly to dispose.
