Advances in heat treating technology mean that it is now possible to produce windows with panes of actual glass that have thermal properties similar to polycarbonate.
However, compared to traditional polycarbonate windows, glass offers brighter, and more scratch-resistant windows that enhance the cabin’s ambiance. The technology complies with V60, heat release, and smoke density requirements, paving the way for obtaining an EASA STC.
The project will take place in FSG’s facilities in Woensdrecht, in the Netherlands, where the company has recently inaugurated a new widebody hangar as part of a larger expansion plan.
Commenting on the agreement, Roald Vos, a Director at Fokker Services Group said: “We take pride in our fruitful, long-term relationship with Aviation Glass, and the combination of our collective knowledge and expertise fills us with excitement as we strive towards achieving a significant breakthrough”
