HAECO Cabin Solutions has launched three devices to help upgrade aircraft lavatories to hands-free operation.

The pre-certified devices are an electric foot-controlled switch for flushing toilets, an infrared sensor-based waste basket lid for disposal of toilet waste and a refillable hand sanitiser dispenser, which eliminates the need for disposable sanitising wipes and paper towels. The dispenser can also be used in other areas of the aircraft cabin.

The upgrades are being offered to airlines individually, enabling them to choose the device or devices that would provide them with the greatest value.

Devices certified for use in aircraft

Doug Rasmussen, President and Group Director of HAECO Cabin Solutions, said: “In our current environment and expectations for the future, passengers would greatly benefit from these enhancements to on-board sanitation. These devices are already familiar to consumers, and we can certify their use in aircraft for integration into the aircraft cabin.”

The company is a business unit of the HAECO Group with headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.
