Inflatable Systems

Inflatable Systems include the critical equipment needed when occupants need to exit an aircraft quickly and safely - evacuation slides, slide/rafts and life rafts. Systems are installed on virtually all types of aircraft – civil, commercial and military. Installations include main deck, upper deck and off-wing evacuation systems.

Advanced technology for these life-saving systems includes lightweight fabric and “smart” technology which is important so that slides have the ability to automatically sense the ground and adjust length if necessary to adapt to various aircraft angles.

Some of the key benefits the systems provide include enhanced passenger safety and faster turnaround times for servicing the slides.
