Engineers at Lufthansa Technik have now refined their emergency floor path marking system to be only visible when actually needed.

“GuideU CustomFit” can be fully integrated in any carpet and flooring design. It will be introduced to the business community for the first time at the Aircraft Interiors Expo from April 5 – 7 in Hamburg.

Torben Biehl, Head of product development for GuideU at Lufthansa Technik, explains the advantages of the innovation: “With the ability to print each individual design directly in our luminous strips, we can now completely integrate emergency floor path marking in the overall design of the airline cabin. Only in the event of a lighting system outage do the markings appear clearly on the floor and guide the way to the closest exit.”

And as before, the system is totally maintenance-free. GuideU is the flattest and lightest floor path marking system and the first non-electrical system that can be contoured into virtually any shape, benefiting aircraft anufacturers, customers and interior designers alike. GuideU absorbs light from the cabin and can show the way to the emergency exits for up to 22 hours without interruption after a brief “charging” period.
