Acro Aircraft Seating’s latest products have been designed with the aim of mitigating the impact on passengers of the airlines’ commercially driven decisions to reduce seat pitch. Acro’s use of a glass phenolic composite backrest structure in conjunction with a monospar chassis gives better legroom at 28” pitch than legacy seats at 30”.
We have designed an unusual and innovative configuration for an Airbus extra wide triple seat, where the middle passenger is gifted with a 19.3” wide space to compensate for what is usually the least preferred position of the three seats. The key is to carefully consider the right material for the application, and find the sweet spot where weight, comfort and durability are perfectly balanced. Our ergonomically designed composite backrest for example is reinforced with a load-carrying aluminium structure which adds weight, but makes the backrest system utterly reliable.
