STG Aerospace has received a fleet-wide order of its market-leading saf-Tglo™ photoluminescent (PL) floorpath marking system from Monarch Airlines.

The scheduled leisure airline, based at London Luton Airport in the UK, has ordered saf-Tglo™ ColorMatch OC for its 30-strong fleet including Airbus A300, A321 and A330 aircraft. The over-carpet system will replace an existing PL product fitted across Monarch’s fleet.

Paul Godfrey, Design Services Manager to Monarch, said: “saf-Tglo™ ColorMatch OC was the ideal choice when we decided to replace our existing floorpath marking system. Safety is essential and saf-Tglo™ offers a reliable, durable and cost-saving solution without compromising on design.”

Peter Stokes, chief executive of STG Aerospace, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Monarch as a customer and proud that they recognised the benefits of choosing saf-Tglo™ as part of their aircraft interior.”

saf-Tglo™ PL floorpath marking systems ‘store’ and simultaneously emit light giving highly visible emergency exit guidance for up to 16 hours in darkness, after only a short period of ‘charging’ with normal cabin lighting. The system uses STG Aerospace’s patented SuperSeal™ technology, which needs virtually no maintenance, saving airlines valuable time and money while offering a reliable, essential safety system.
