B/E Aerospace, Inc. (NASDAQ:BEAV), the world's leading manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products and the world's leading distributor of aerospace fasteners and consumables, today announced that the Company has been selected by both Airbus and Boeing to provide its Safe Lav CDS™ oxygen system for line-fit installation in the lavatories of essentially all in-production narrow body aircraft and certain in-production wide body aircraft. Both Airbus and Boeing line-fit deliveries as well as retrofit deliveries for airlines globally are expected to begin in 2014.
The B/E Aerospace Safe Lav oxygen system is designed to ensure safe, tamper-proof delivery of lavatory oxygen, and addresses the recently issued Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airworthiness Directive which requires all chemical oxygen systems installed in US registered aircraft lavatories to be replaced by September 2015. In addition, several other countries have recently adopted similar regulations.
Safe Lav has a common user interface, easily interchanges with current chemical oxygen systems and requires no additional electrical power. Safe Lav uses stainless steel cylinder construction and is available in 12, 15 and 22 minute durations.
“We are pleased to provide Airbus, Boeing and airlines globally with our FAA compliant lavatory oxygen systems. As the industry leader in aircraft oxygen systems, we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a low maintenance oxygen solution that is installation ready,” stated Amin J. Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B/E Aerospace.This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
