How Advanced Composite Panels are Transforming Aircraft Interiors

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the invisible heroes working behind the scenes to ensure a smooth, safe, and comfortable flight.

Gone are the days of clunky, heavy interiors; modern aircraft boast sleek, lightweight, and fire-resistant cabins thanks to the magic of advanced composite panels.

These panels, manufactured by The Gill Corporation (TGC), are the result of cutting-edge engineering, offering a unique blend of strength, weight savings, and safety. They’re the unsung heroes that keep you soaring comfortably through the skies.



Unmatched Versatility for Aircraft Interiors

Gillfab® composite panels come in a variety of configurations to suit various applications within an aircraft cabin, including:

  • Structural components: Floor panels, bulkheads, and overhead stowage bins all benefit from the high strength-to-weight ratio of composites.
  • Non-structural components: Sidewalls, ceilings, and lavatories can leverage the lightweight nature of composites without compromising on aesthetics.
  • Cargo compartments: Gillfab® panels meet stringent flammability and smoke emission regulations and are designed for durability and impact resistance, making them ideal for cargo compartment and fire barrier applications.

TGC doesn’t just offer a one-size-fits-all solution. They understand that different parts of an aircraft cabin have different needs. That’s why they’ve developed a comprehensive buffet of Gillfab® panels, each specifically designed to excel in its designated area:
