2014 marked what was potentially the most significant product development since Sabeti Wain Aerospace was established - the move into foam seat base components. This expanded the company's scope from designing and producing only seat covers, to encompass all soft elements - including precision-shaped seat bases, backrests, headrests, leg rests and other items. The new facility at Leighton Buzzard, uses a range of safety-approved foam materials, combined with sophisticated cutting and assembly techniques.
The move offers advantages to both seating contractors and to airlines themselves. Having a single specialist supplier for all foam components ensures a perfect match between the cover and the seat every time.With both elements being produced in tandem, there is potential for exciting design innovation, paving the way for better-fitted, smarter interiors for airlines operators - and enhanced comfort for passengers and crew.

This amalgamation has created a cool and comfortable sleep experience as well as being responsive to passenger movements, and accommodating those who prefer a softer or firmer mattress. Through numerous comfort workshops and multiple samples, Sabeti Wain Aerospace along with the team were able to optimise a comfortable, fully customisable cushion with a High Quality, Aesthetically Pleasing dress cover whilst meeting various customer design and certification requirements and expectations.
