Aircraft seats & headrests need grommet edging that conforms to panels, cut outs & edges. Free samples here http://bit.ly/Samples123
Modern aircraft seat backs and headrests are complex. They carry cabling to facilitate passenger audiovisual services and the headrests have to be adjustable to allow passengers to increase neck and head support when needed.
The cabling has to be protected as it passes over sharp edges in the seat frame as abrasion can easily cause service issues, customer dissatisfaction and costly maintenance.
Spring-Fast can be applied to these edges and holes quickly and easily –using just finger pressure- without the use of adhesives. Headrests now have to be adjustable and bendable which puts stress on the grommets.
The adhesive and the plastic grommet can fatigue, weaken and break with repeated use. Spring-Fast uses no adhesive and has a spring-steel substrate that will outperform these plastic grommets.
Better yet Spring-Fast saves you money. A client case study showed that assuming a $60/hr labor rate, Spring-Fast’s simple easy installation saved 49% in comparison to applying adhesive to plastic grommets.
Spring-Fast grommet edging is flexible and high performance protection for equipment, cables & wiring and is used to protect against abrasion by sharp edges on sheet metal, panels and holes.
Spring-Fast conforms to small radii or right angle corners so wiring can be easily and quickly protected by best in class grommet edging that is applied using simple finger pressure.
Spring-Fast can be used to great effect in any situation where bending and chafing can cause an issue. In an aerospace context lightening holes are an obvious example as well as the aircraft seating and headrests discussed here.
It is being used to great effect in many industries such as Telecom, IT, Aerospace, Rail, Food Service, Medical, Energy and Power.
Spring-Fast gives users in any industry the security of knowing that their equipment is protected by best in class cable grommets that also save them money on total installed costs.
Devicetech designs & manufactures specialty protection materials which have many aerospace applications: aircraft seating, interiors, IFE systems, Lighting, Avionics, APU’s / Power Supplies, Fuselage and Ground Support Equipment. FAR, EWIS, ARINC Compliant.
We provide standard off the shelf and customized solutions as necessary, complete with collaborative FEA (CFEA) programs, providing increased productivity, reduced installed cost and offer industry performance compliance for wire protection grommet edging, enclosure and bulkhead seals and trims, cable management and protection.

I recently posted a video showing you how to get a really smooth finish on your MDF edges – using wood filler.
The problem is that this is quite a long-winded job, and as one of my viewers recently voiced in a comment below the video, “imagine doing all this work to 5 closets each 6-8 doors which are 8ft high and 2ft wide. This is just crazy amount of work. There has to be a better way!”
This got me thinking. There are so many opinions on the internet on how best to paint MDF edges, but none of them are backed up with objective demonstration, and so I thought, wouldn’t it be good if I prepared some MDF edges with all the possible options, so that I CAN DECIDE WHICH ONE IS BEST.
So this is exactly what I’ve done in this video. I’ve prepared a mock up with 5 edges, prepared as follows:
- oil based undercoat and top coat
- water based undercoat and top coat
- slightly watered down PVA bond, with a water based undercoat and top coat
- wood filler, followed by water based undercoat and top coat
- MDF edging tape followed by water based undercoat and top coat
The best solution is the MDF edging tape – which produces a really smooth finish, closely followed by the wood filler.
But both of these involve quite a lot of hassle.
What was really interesting was that the oil based solution didn’t produce a noticeably better finish than the water based wood primer undercoat and top coat, and the PVA primer didn’t make any noticeable difference when compared with the edges that had just been primed and top coated.
So in summary, if you’re a professional woodworker and want a truly professional, smooth finish, then filling or treating the edges with edging tape is the way to go.
But for all the rest of us, you get a perfectly acceptable finish by simply treating the edges with a wood primer undercoat, followed by a top coat – like I did here! https://goo.gl/7ohVg2
