The Gill Corporation’s Gillfab 4505 and Gillfab 4605 composite sandwich panels have been qualified by Airbus for use as replacement cabin floor panel material in A380 aircraft.

Originally qualified in 1997 for use in single-aisle and long-range Airbus aircraft, these panel designs offer a demonstrated history of in-service durability.

Supplied in a semi-finished condition, Gillfab 4505 and Gillfab 4605 enable airlines and maintenance providers to produce a multitude of different replacement panels, across variant models, the company reports.

“By eliminating the necessity to purchase and/or inventory a variety of unique floor panel configurations, customers have realised cost savings, reduced turnaround times and greater inventory flexibility,” reports Candi Burdick, Director of Aftermarket Sales. “We’ve supported Airbus operators and maintenance providers for more than three decades and are pleased to have the opportunity to extend these same benefits and value to A380 operators.”
