The Covid-19 pandemic has quickly established behavioural changes with the public as they are much more conscious when they share communal spaces.

Future aircraft passengers will place even greater value on their personal space than ever before – Not simply from a comfort perspective, but from a health and safety standpoint. Airlines will need to adapt their cabins in order to tempt customers back and reassure them that their health is protected whilst on board. Reduced passenger loads will free-up opportunities to adapt existing cabins to address this new normal in the short to medium term.

Whilst still in early development, the Isolate kit transforms the middle seat into a reassuring screen to provide maximum personal space and separation for adjacent passengers. The light-weight table top supports a vertical screen in translucent thermoplastic to allow light to pass through and maintain an airy cabin. The whole feature is supported by the armrests and securely belted into position. 

All surfaces are designed to remove any dirt traps and be easy clean. There is provision for a personal amenity kit with a mask, hand-sanitiser and disinfectant wipes to deliver the most hygienic flight experience possible. The vertical screen can alternatively be produced in a lightweight thermo-formed foam, with a cleanable leather trim.

The kit disassembles easily for stowage and can be fitted to any seat in order to facilitate travelling couples who wish to be screened from the aisle. The kit has been designed so that it can be retro-fitted to any existing economy seat making it versatile to be fitted to single-aisle and twin-aisle aircraft. The Isolate kit provides the reassurance and confidence necessary for passengers to return to their previous travel patterns. The kit of parts also have a life after the Covid-19 era where it is a way to transform short haul economy class seats into a business class offering.
