The international technology Group and specialty glass expert SCHOTT has won the Crystal Cabin Award in the category “Materials & Components” for its laminate made from Xensation® Cover glass to be used in interior sidewall window panes in passenger aircraft. SCHOTT is the first company to offer a product that meets all requirements of fire protection and mechanical reliability, and which is lighter than traditional plastics-based sidewall window panes in aircraft interiors. SCHOTT is displaying its product portfolio at Aircraft Interior Expo in Hamburg from April 8 to 10 (SCHOTT booth 6B57).

Sidewall window panes in passenger aircraft fulfill important safety functions and create an authentic flying experience for passengers by providing views to the outside. SCHOTT in cooperation with the company Diehl Aircabin has developed a laminated glass composite for interior sidewall window panes consisting of the company’s special flat glass Xensation® Cover and foils. These new sidewall window panes offer additional benefits to airlines and passengers alike and are superior to traditional plastic-based panes.

“For this new product we pooled our expertise in developing the world’s strongest cover glass for smartphones and tablet PCs Xensation® Cover with our long-term expertise in developing high-performance fire-resistant glazings. We are very happy about winning the Crystal Cabin Award. We see this award as a confirmation that our new product idea is interesting for the market, opening up new opportunities for interior aircraft designers,” says Dr. Jochen Alkemper, Head of Product Development at SCHOTT in Jena (Germany).

SCHOTT’s new glass composite fulfills the aviation safety regulations for cabins including the strictest standards in case of fire. Moreover, the composite panes are approximately 40 percent lighter, resulting in significant savings in fuel and lower emissions. They are also more scratch-resistant requiring less frequent replacement and allowing passengers a clearer view to the outside for longer. The panes are easier to clean, improving the overall hygiene of the cabins. This opens the door to new application options such as large-sized partitions.

SCHOTT has filed initial patent applications for its new product. Further applications to extend the patent family are pending.
