Jamco America has revealed its latest cabin hardware design: the leather-wrapped Soft Divider, a soft eyebrow-type hanging cabin divider with a simple design that enables maximum seat density.
The divider can be used to create a physical separation between business and economy classes on narrow-body single-aisle aircraft, and according to Jamco it also allows for additional legroom, or in some cases an additional row of seats, depending upon aircraft configuration. The divider is simple to install and offers seamless integration with existing header provisions certified for current Boeing 737 divider systems (it is already flying on a B737), and is scheduled to be certified for the Airbus A321 later this year, according to Jamco.
The company says that, unlike typical semi-transparent Lexan dividers or curtain dividers, the Jamco Soft Divider provides a lightweight flexible divider that offers complete separation of zones. The unit bends sufficiently such that it will not restrict a reclining seat, with minimal encroachment into the space of other passengers. Upon request, the divider can be formed to follow the contour of the seatback in the reclined position.
