Foam Components

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 Sabeti Wain Aerospace Works, 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.

With a Sabeti Wain Aerospace designed and produced back foam the dress cover is able to sit tightly within the side bolsters while still being fully removable, perfectly demonstrating the advantages of a single specialist supplier for foam components and seat dress covers.

Transatlantic JetBlue Mint

The newly revealed, transatlantic version of JetBlue Mint, showcases a mattress cushion using Tuft & Needle proprietary foam technology, fabricated by Sabeti Wain Aerospace, integrated with a Sabeti Wain Aerospace breathable soft look Dress Cover. 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.

Cushion and cover Integration

This uniquely shaped back cushion would not have been possible without integrating the cushion and dress cover. This dress cover uses 5mm of Laminate to achieve its clean, smart look.

Pressure Mapping

Mirroring the technologies used in mattress development and long term hospital bed comfort, Sabeti Wain Aerospace have the inhouse capability to conduct pressure mapping studies.
These studies can be carried out
during the comfort workshop and be used during the duration of the cushion development. 


Foam Workshops

At Sabeti Wain Aerospace we offer rapid prototyping of cushions and covers over a 2-3 day workshop.
Airlines have found this very useful as they enjoy putting their own input into the design and get to feel and see physical samples
 to assist with finalising the design.
