Yokohama Rubber to Display Value-added Lavatories at Aircraft Interiors Expo Asia 2006.
A side-lit mirror in both new lavatory units provides a clear, well-illuminated image of the passenger's face. The female-oriented unit includes a shelf to place makeup cases, a white and pink color scheme and marble-like countertop. The sink in both of the units is in the corner to maximize usable space on the countertop. In both units, the ceiling lamps employ energy-saving, long-lasting light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
Although Boeing stopped production of the midsized aircraft last year, numerous 757s remain in service, and demand for value-added renovations is mounting as airlines seek to differentiate their airliners.
In addition to lavatory modules for the Boeing 757 and 737, Yokohama Rubber supplies drinking-water tanks for nearly every Boeing model. It is also the exclusive supplier of drinking water and wastewater tanks for the Airbus 380. Other exhibits at the Yokohama booth will include galley panels, a food cart, and examples of weight-saving aramid honeycomb developed by Showa Aircraft Industry Co., Ltd., a Yokohama partner in creating aircraft products.
