Auto-kit International Ltd’s key competence in customised luxury interiors is not just limited to the automotive sector. In recent years we have been commissioned to carry out interior transformation for Tier 1 suppliers to Airbus and Boeing for the first class and business class cabins of commercial aircrafts including the A380 and the Dreamliner. In addition we have also carried out projects on executive jets for high profile, high-net worth individuals.

The work undertaken has included both decorative coatings and leather upholstery to deliver a feeling of opulence, luxury and well-being for the client. As an approved Tier 2 supplier to Airbus and Boeing, our aviation department are accustomed in delivering products that adhere to the latest technical criteria. Our decorative coatings facility have installed processes that pass FAR 25 853 requirements for flammability, toxicity and smoke density.

The testing can be carried out independently by CAA approved facilities which offer fire testing, heat release rate (OSU), smoke emission (NBS) and flammability testing to air worthiness standards.

Our leather department only uses tanneries and suppliers that have the test facilities approved by the CAA. These testing includes vertical burn, combination burn and ABD 00031 smoke density and toxicity testing. All leather is pre-tested for thickness levels, tear strength, flexing endurance, colour fastness, resistant to blocking and adhesion of finish.
