Cabin Interiors

Diverse range of products leveraging Reinhold’s breadth of composite and metal capabilities

Cabin Interior products range from individual components to complex, tight-tolerance assemblies

Composite Seating Structures

  • Products require a higher level of precision and conformance
  • Products must meet strength, fire worthiness and other thresholds
  • Requires technically differentiated production capabilities

Composite vs. Metal Seatbacks

  • Half the weight of metal pieces
  • Better anti-corrosive properties
  • Can combine multiple components into monocoque design for greater flexibility
  • Higher strength with greater durability
  • Economy Class Seatback

  • Business Class Seatback

  • Economy Class Seatback

  • Economy Class Seat Pan

  • Economy Class Seatback

  • Economy Class Seatback

Market Drivers

  • Global demand for air travel – Original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), industry groups and the FAA forecast growing demand for air travel over the next 20 years given positive macroeconomic trends, particularly in emerging markets

  • Strong outlook for deliveries – Significant order volumes since 2010 and new product introductions support strong ongoing production rates

  • Increased wide body demand – Increased demand for air travel coupled with airport capacity constraints in developed markets are increasing demand for higher capacity aircraft

  • Increased premium and feature-packed seating – Competitive differentiation across premium products and demand for in-flight entertainment driving seat selection and replacement

  • Increased composite content – Requirements for weight reduction and reduced part counts plus the design flexibility of composites driving increasing demand for composites

  • Growing installed base – Market share of composite seating is growing which drives a larger installed base and recurring aftermarket volume from refurbishment

Composite seatbacks save approximately $50,000 in fuel per wide body aircraft per year
