STG gets the green light for blue light


April 4, 2017 –  Aircraft cabin lighting company, STG Aerospace, has secured FAA approval for its saf-Tglo Blu system – a blue-glowing photoluminescent emergency floor path marking system – across the majority of Boeing, Airbus and Embraer aircraft types. According to STG Aerospace, the system will soon to be added to the options catalog for major OEM programs, and this approval allows airlines following FAA regulations to install the system.

With the same choice of base colors to match the carpet and interior color scheme as the original saf-Tglo range, saf-Tglo Blu introduces a soothing blue glow in place of the traditional green glow. This can help the floorpath markings to work with an airline’s branding and the latest LED lighting installed in modern aircraft.

Dr Sean O’Kell, director of innovation at STG Aerospace, commented, “saf-Tglo Blu is the first blue glowing photoluminescent system to have ever been approved for any aircraft application. Following the EASA approval last year, we’re delighted we now have FAA certification for the leading aircraft types and we are already seeing significant interest in the product from both OEMs and airlines across the globe.”
