Seat-in installation. Selective tile replacement. Drop-in retrofits. In many ways, aviation and carpet tile were made for each other. Faster installations and replacements not only streamline your workflow but also help you achieve more flight time, less down time.
Sky-Tiles™ can help make you a sustainability leader. The Sky-Tiles system is designed to be more environmentally friendly from the ground up. Our carpet is 100% recyclable and is third party certified “climate neutral”. What we’ve found is that it’s profitable to create products that lighten their load on the planet, from inception to regeneration.
Intersept®, an organic, biobased-antimicrobial, prevents the growth of odor causing bacteria and mold. Sky-Tiles does not contain brominated compounds like traditional aircraft carpet, thereby eliminating these potentially cancer causing compounds.
Extend your brand beyond the aisle – into all the spaces where your business lives. Sky-Tiles can be installed in the gate area, VIP check-in, club lounge, jet bridge and corporate office. Sky-Tiles provides a seamless experience for customers and employees solidifying your brand and unique perspective.
Sky-Tiles go the distance: They are built to withstand more aggressive cleaning, are harder wearing, are dimensionally stable (no shrinkage), and have no serged edges to fray. Sky-Tiles™ mergeable dye lot construction allows selective replacement without the need to match production runs. Sky-Tiles are proven in airline operations.
Part reduction math is simple. Fewer parts equal fewer hassles. And lower costs to tally at the end of an installation or retrofit. Which is why we were thrilled when one aviation customer informed us that our Sky-Tiles allowed them to reduce their carpet part count from 31 to 4. Simple math, powerful dividends.
What our customers say
The overall cost of ownership is lower. We can go 2 C checks before replacing carpet. With the old carpet, we were replacing the carpet very regularly due to shrinkage or soiling. Every C check used to get a full carpet change. With Sky-Tiles, we can go at least 18 months before changing any carpet. Even at 18 months, the most we change are the aisle pieces.
Our favorite thing about Sky-Tiles is the ease of carpet map, and known dimensions. A pallet of material shows up and it all is laid out like a puzzle. Ease of ordering is a big plus. And, we know it’s ready to install immediately. It’s easier to maintain and install, with selective replacement a big plus. Overall, it’s a lower cost of ownership.
To change an aisle runner used to take several hours of measuring, cutting and surging. Now, we just pull up and replace with a new piece.
Overall maintenance is easier, quicker to resolve. The look is wonderful and it performs much better than our prior carpet.
