Hi-lo conference tables from MSB Design are being made available as a line-fit option on the Gulfstream G500 and G600 family of aircraft. The latest manual hi-lo tables were specifically designed for the G500/600 models and were showcased on the Gulfstream G600 mock-up at NBAA 2015, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on November 17-19. The new table has been modified from existing models to incorporate a number of new features, including a much slimmer pedestal and a carpet pinch beauty ring.
In addition to the manual model, MSB offers an electric pedestal that can be operated by Bluetooth, in two stages, changing its use from dining to coffee table mode. Clients can also opt for an oval shroud converting the existing round, or square shape, into an oval finish.
The new table has been designed to withstand 600 lb of load in the deployed position and to survive 1,400 lb of weight while being stable enough to remain safely stowed. “We’ve designed our tables to be incredibly strong and reliable,” said Shannon Gill, business development director at MSB Design. “They are extremely solid with an intelligent infinite locking feature. This removes concerns about the product breaking if someone is leaning, sitting or sleeping, no matter which height it is set at. Our clients tell us that a combination of finish, reliability, appearance and operation, in addition to size, noise and weight reduction, are all key considerations in table selection. We have listened to them and hopefully created a product they value.”
Gill anticipates that the new design will be welcomed by OEMs, completion centers and design houses. “The level of customization we offer is extensive,” she added.
