Goodrich Corporation will showcase its enhanced business jet interiors capabilities at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) show in Las Vegas, Oct. 10-12, 2011. Featured at the Goodrich booth C6910 will be hardwood lumber which is now available as trim to accompany its line of wood veneers and laser precision cutting techniques for custom inlay projects. Both of these technologies open new possibilities for enhanced business jet cabin interiors, with precision grain matching and intricate wood inlays now readily available.
Specific hardwood lumber to accompany an extensive palette of wood veneers is ready for custom finishing work and can be purchased in trim already cut to exact dimensions, in bulk as square edge stock or in boule form (sequenced as the original tree). "Interiors finishers can now benefit from having wood veneer and lumber from the same specie - birdseye maple for example - throughout their project. Laser cutting technology offers new levels of intricacy that broaden the potential for detailed multi-species wood marquetry designs or complex corporate logos incorporated into business jet cabin interiors," said Rod Wilson, director of business development for Goodrich's cabin systems business.
These new capabilities add to the business jet cabin seats, divans, crew and observer seats, cabin lighting systems, molded composites, custom cabinetry, custom veneers and furniture, cabin management systems, in-flight entertainment systems, ice detection and protection systems and potable water systems offered by Goodrich and also on display at the show.
