BWF Profiles not only supplies plastic profiles to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) in the aviation industry, but also works with customers to develop retrofit solutions for aircraft lighting. The modernisation of cabin lighting on board can range from the replacement of conventional fluorescent tubes with energy-efficient LED lights to the integration of intelligent lighting systems to improve performance, efficiency or function.

Homogeneous lighting ensures a pleasant atmosphere on board, even on long flights. In addition, lightweight and compact plastic profiles help to reduce weight and thus save valuable resources. However, the well-being of passengers and crew always comes first. Standards and regulations lay down strict requirements to ensure safety in the aircraft cabin and beyond. BWF Profiles ensures compliance with these requirements and offers numerous options for realising individual customer wishes. We will be happy to advise you on the right solution for your project.

Plastic profiles in aviation
Advantages and specific properties compared to aluminium profiles

  • Lightweight: Plastic profiles are often lighter than aluminium profiles, resulting in potential weight savings that can improve the fuel efficiency of the aircraft.

  • Design flexibility: Plastics can be easily moulded, allowing for a variety of design options. This can be particularly beneficial when it comes to integrating lighting components into complex cabin structures.
