Zodiac Aerospac’s SEN door receives Innovation Award
Munich, October 10, 2017 – During a ceremony at the Inter Airport Europe Expo in Munich on 10 October, Zodiac AirCargo Equipment has been awarded with the inter airport Europe 2017 Innovation Award for its new SEN Cargo Container Door in the interDESIGN category.
The SEN Cargo Container Door was developed by Zodiac AirCargo Equipment as a more durable, safe and easy alternative for the current container doors with Velcro. An innovative mushroom locking system (patent pending) ensures easy, quick and tight door closure without the known disadvantages from Velcro. This is also what SEN stands for: secure, ergonomic and non-Velcro. Thanks to SEN, opening and closing of the door is reduced by 30 seconds and only two custom seals are needed. These advantages reduce handling time and costs, while the problem of Velcro deterioration is eliminated.
“We are delighted and honored to receive the Innovation Award in the interDESIGN category and like to thank the jury, the Inter Airport organization and the voters”, says Jasper van Gelder, Sales Director of Zodiac AirCargo Equipment.
The Inter Airport Innovation awards are granted during the bi-annual Exhibition at the Munich Trade Center. The awards promote industry advancements in interconnected airport, improved security systems, intelligent passenger and baggage handling systems and innovative ramp equipment.
The SEN door will be on display at the Zodiac Aerospace stand 422 during Inter Airport expo from 10 - 14 October 2017, in Munich. Additionally, Zodiac AirCargo Equipment will be showcasing its first modular and innovative maindeck container.
