Cladding

E-Leather CLADDING is the ideal solution for covering seat furniture, seat surrounds, vertical panels, and most forms of monument construction to co-ordinate interior colours and grains with E-Leather seating upholstery materials.

Being a man-made material that is precisely engineered, E-Leather CLADDING can be formulated uniquely to meet the correct combination of properties in order to secure a pass for the resulting monument. This means that, where other types of material have failed to deliver, E-Leather has been able to work with the interior manufacturer to provide a solution that meets the demands of the designer and fulfils the requirements of the certification process.

E-Leather is the only high technology manufactured material providing the appearance of traditional leather throughout the cabin. Available in any colour and a selection of grains,E-Leather CLADDING has the look and feel of leather without the weight penalty. It is also available on a 1.4-metre roll for ease of use. The use of E-Leather CLADDING for monuments and partitions increases the opportunity to continue the brand colours and selected finishes throughout other areas of the cabin, whilst reducing on-going maintenance and spares costs.

Colour swatches

Most customers already have a specific colour and grain in mind. We can manufacture E-Leather in almost any colour and, subject to minimum volumes, can colour match to specific swatch, Pantone or RAL colour references.

Foam lamination, stitched or embossed seams, piping and contrasting colours are a breeze. Colour and grain palettes for E-Leather CLASSIC and E-Leather CLADDING can be matched, contrasted or co-ordinated across an entire interior. E-Leather provides a number of opportunities to enhance cabin image and design.

Comparison

Considering seat comfort, alternative faux leather materials that are softer have been found to increase the surface area in contact with the passenger, by a significant amount.

This can lead to more heat and moisture entrapments between the passenger and the seat. E-Leather avoids these issues as a direct result of its unique structure and coating technology.

Fabric

Compared to fabric, E-Leather can save you up to $35,000 per annum per aircraft. Unlike fabric, E-Leather only needs an occasional wipe to maintain a lasting appearance and hygienic seating. Chose E-Leather to reduce maintenance time, reduce cleaning costs and eliminate frequent changing and replacement of covers.

Traditional Leather

Compared to traditional leather, E-Leather can save you up to $50,000 per annum per aircraft. A seat upholstered with
E-Leather can weigh around 2lb (900g) less than the same seat upholstered in traditional leather, with clear fuel burn savings.
