Hook‘nFly: quick & easy aviation carpet refurbishment
Quick and easy aviation carpet refurbishment
On average, an aircraft is operable for 30 years before it’s decommissioned to retirement. Through those years, an aircraft’s restoration is essential to its maintenance and upkeep. Interiors and exteriors are checked thoroughly and then replaced on a regular basis, including its carpets.
To reduce the downtime of an aircraft during the refurbishment process, it is key to offer solutions that are quick and effective. Therefore Tarkett’s Aviation department partnered up with Velcro Companies, and are proud to introduce Hook’nFly, an innovative carpet refurbishment solution for the aviation industry that is completely FAR 25.853A certified.
With this specially developed solution, Tarkett makes it easier and significantly faster to replace carpets in aircrafts, helping their customers save valuable time and money.
