Safran Cabin was selected for the 2022 awards with the Fire Resistant Container (FRC), the first-of-its-kind to contain fire that involves lithium batteries, also known as Class D fires.
Equipped with a combination of high-temperature resistant panels and unique door fabric, the FRC is designed to withstand fire for up to 6 hours, which is the longest time an airplane can be away from an airport at any given time during the flight. In the event of a fire mid-flight, it gives airlines sufficient time to safely land.
