MSB Aerospace and Flying Colours Corp have embarked on what both companies intend to be a long-term collaborative relationship, whereby MSB supplies customised hi-lo tables to the completion centre. The first project is for a Bombardier Global; MSB will provide a bespoke table based on its standard single-pedestal manual sliding table, by late August 2019.
MSB has provided its standard version of this table for the Global family since 2012. The bespoke version is designed for a four-seat club grouping and provides a 31.5 x 41.5in main tabletop surface with folding leaves. An additional built-in sliding feature allows for a 14.25in panel to be added, extending the tabletop across the aisle to reach passengers seated on the divan, the two-place seating group or the credenza. To complement the cabin design, the pedestal shrouds, which are normally plated, have a faux wood grain finish achieved by water-transfer printing. Flying Colours will apply finishing touches to the table surface, to ensure coordination with the rest of the cabinetry.
“MSB is excited to have the opportunity of providing this first hi-lo conference table to Flying Colours,” said Shannon Gill, managing director of MSB Aerospace. “We recognise the expertise of their business and know that our own technical experts will meet the high standards expected. This project requires unique design modifications and certification, which we are pleased to undertake as we anticipate further orders for this style of product.”
“Our support for the Global family continues to strengthen, and MSB’s focus on creating quality, customised precision-engineered products is a good match for this aircraft type,” said Eric Gillespie, executive vice president at Flying Colours Corp. “Our own cabinet makers are capable of producing an infinite selection of cabin monuments, but we have chosen to work with MSB on these very specific, intricately engineered tables as they have a significant amount of experience in designing and creating the complex mechanisms required for durable and stylish hi-lo tables.”
MSB’s single-pedestal tables can be used as coffee, conference or dining tables, as well as work desks. MSB also makes an electric version featuring integrated Bluetooth technology, which enables users to raise or lower the surface from anywhere in the cabin. Clients can also opt for dual or quadruple pedestals depending on cabin size, along with oval or round shrouds converting the existing square shape into a curved finish.
