Promessa® AV Selected as Baseline Product for Acro Series 6


Promessa® AV by Ultrafabrics® continues to impress more and more customers, a year after its launch, with its unique combination of luxurious feel, ease of maintenance, and durability. This synthetic leather was specifically designed for economy seating with the best haptic quality in the aircraft interiors industry. The high-performance top layers have class-leading abrasion, flexing and color fastness, ensuring seat covers will maintain their comfort and aesthetic quality throughout their lifespan.

Promessa AV has a TR Twill backcloth that controls stretch to ensure that the seat cover maintains its tight lines, whether it is laminated or not. The inherently lightweight construction of Promessa AV uses a proprietary Japanese TakumiTM process to provide one of the lightest seat covers in the industry today.

Acro Aircraft Seating selected Promessa AV as the baseline product for their Series 6 Fixed Back and Recline commercial seats. As a high-performance alternative to leather, Promessa AV delivers a level of passenger comfort – and anti-microbial properties - that cannot be matched.

The proprietary construction process yields a seat cover that distributes the passenger load away from pressure points, wicks away moisture, and breaths to maintain optimal temperatures. All of these qualities reflect decades of scientific and engineering research into what creates comfort in seating. Promessa AV is the result of that research and now it is widely available to designers, seat manufacturers, and airlines.

Tapis’ commitment to introducing revolutionary aircraft seat cover fabrics is matched by its pledge to provide unrivaled customer service. That means Promessa AV is typically available for fast order fulfillments -- because Tapis recognizes that elevating the air passenger experience requires getting innovation out of the laboratory and into planes.
