Greenpoint patents Boeing 787 floor structure system


A floor structure system designed for the Boeing 787 has earned Greenpoint its fifth patent. It is used on all Greenpoint’s 787 completions.

The system includes a floor panel, two seat tracks and an intercostal spanning between and attaching to the seat tracks. The intercostal’s interface fitting protrudes through the floor panel to provide customizable attachment locations for monuments and furnishings.

“The 787 floor system patent represents Greenpoint engineering’s ingenuity in coming up with a solution to improve the installation process by standardizing modifications to the 787’s unique floor structure, minimizing parts and reducing installation time,” said Bret Neely, executive vice president at Greenpoint. “The robust flooring system supports custom interior configurations required by VIP clients.”
