Aircraft Flooring Materials: 2 Innovative Aircraft Interior Flooring Options From Duracote

When it comes to aircraft flooring and transportation flooring materials in general, there are a number of demands, standards and regulatory compliance issues that must be considered and adhered to. In the dynamic world of aircraft design, manufacture, MRO and refurbishment, there is a restless energy that rewards innovation and continues to drive improvements in the quality and delivery of material products offered by manufacturers and distributors. The demand for high-performance materials for aircraft flooring specifically is certainly no exception to this rule.

As such, Duracote refuses to stop innovating! In fact, our desire and drive to develop innovative new materials is a focal point of what we do, and in many cases what separates us from the competition. In this article, we will take a look at two of our product lines that feature innovative options for aviation flooring.

We have developed our Nexfloor and Durug product lines to be available in a number of different configurations to provide our clients in the aviation and transportation industries with as many options as possible. For those with special considerations, we can tailor our existing product lines to meet your need or custom product development via Duracote Invent.
