ACC Aircraft Cabin Components Cabin Maintenance Solutions and Airline Seating Services
ACC Aircraft Cabin Components offers first-class cabin maintenance services for the aerospace industry, including expert seat cleaning, professional leather refurbishments, and thorough repairs.
The expanding company prepares removed seats for sales purposes and is the partner of Germany’s well-known airline, Lufthansa.
EASA-approved aircraft cabin seating maintenance solutions
ACC Aircraft offers meticulous services for all types of aircraft interior seating and ensures that cabins are kept to exceptionally high standards by working alongside the client during every stage of the project.
The company’s quality is guaranteed through its own special storage facilities in its dry and well-ventilated 15,000m2 warehouse, which can hold up to 30,000 airline seats. The company delivers and stores the seats in containers to protect them from dirt and dust.
ACC has three workshops with 20 workrooms and many highly skilled mechanics. Employees have received extensive training and are particularly specialised in aircraft seating and aircraft cabin interiors such as composite parts. Every staff member is qualified according to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 145 standards.
The company’s lifting platforms and specially selected tools have been specially designed for use with aircraft. Each seat is given a serial number to identify its origin and type, while the shipsets are then scanned, stored and saved with a date and loading place in ACC’s system.
The administration team then uses the system to access the storage location, condition and status of every seat.
Sustainable cleaning and painting services for aviation seating
ACC Aircraft pre-cleans seats using eco-friendly, water-soluble cleaning agents to identify their condition and easily carry out maintenance work. This process also allows the team to clean the frames before any work is done.
When the plastic elements of the aircraft seats are slightly damaged, ACC Aircraft repairs them according to approved techniques and with special resins. Once the plastic renovation process is complete, the parts are smoothed and lacquered.
When carrying out repairs, the company conforms to EASA Part 21J requirements and carefully follows instructions directly from the manufacturer or partner companies.
Leather seat coverings are more costly, but can withstand aircraft conditions four times longer than fabric alternatives. They are also simple to restore back to their original state and heavy soiling can be successfully removed with ACC’s special sanitising products and techniques.
The highly experienced ACC team ensures that all seats are cleaned to a particularly high standard and are treated by hand before painting.
After the leather has been thoroughly cleaned, it is covered with a primary coat and paintwork. A special varnish is then used to prevent the seats from wear and tear, creating a fresh look. The colour is measured colorimetrically against the reference.
The last step involves drying and going over the entire paintwork to guarantee consistency and quality.
ACC also provides dress cover designs using high-quality material in cooperation with Lantal, meeting air traffic standards.
