Here Are New Seat Designs That Encourage Social Distancing Onboard

As airlines are now resorting to blocking the middle seat to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Aviointerior might have found a permanent solution to that problem.

The Italian aircraft interiors company has launched Janus - a new seat design that can help airlines put passengers in the middle seats while still maintaining social distancing onboard.

The new two-faced design is distinguished by the reverse position of the center seat of the triple to ensure the maximum isolation between passengers seated next to each other.

While passengers seated on the side seats, aisle and fuselage, continue to be positioned in the flight direction as usual, the passenger sitting in the center is facing backwards.

The arrangement allows all three passengers to be separated with a shield made of transparent material that isolates them from each other, creating a protective barrier for everyone. Each passenger has its own space isolated from others, even from people who walk through the aisle.

Each place of the “Janus” seat is surrounded on three sides by a high shield that prevents the breath propagation to occupants of adjacent seats.

Janus seat is made of easy cleaning and safe hygienisation materials. The option is available with the shield in opaque material or with different degrees of transparency.

Aviointerior is also proposing Glassafe - a kit-level solution that can be installed on existing seats to make close proximity safer among passengers sharing the same seat.

Glassafe is made of transparent material to make the entire cabin harmonious and aesthetically light, but perfectly fulfilling the objective of creating an isolated volume around the passenger in order to avoid or minimize contacts and interactions between passengers.

Glassafe is supplied in various executions with fixing systems to the seat that allow easy installation and removal. It can be supplied in opaque material or with different degrees of transparency, all easy cleaning and suitable for a safe hygienisation.
