It all started in 1964, when founder, John Schneller, developed a vinyl-coated fiberglass cloth that provided an attractive and durable headliner for the Douglas DC3 aircraft. This set the stage for the ultimate transformation of interior aircraft environments in the aviation market.
Since then, Schneller has taken great strides to design its products according to the industry's evolution. As more airlines put greater emphasis on passenger experience, our designs have adapted to reflect that by focusing more on hospitality.
Comfortable environments, privacy, and technology are increasingly being incorporated into new designs, especially for first-class and private suite areas of the aircraft. Schneller produces solutions that reflect those changes down to the smallest detail.
Schneller adheres to a regimented process that takes into account the unique needs of each client. Our process engineers continually monitor and study updates and trends in the airline industry to help improve our processes, enhance our product quality, and increase our efficiency. Our complete portfolio of products include:
- Film Laminates: ceilings, window panels, and bins
- Reinforced Laminates: high-abuse areas, like galleys, carts, and class dividers
- Thermoplastic Sheets: window panels and seat back trays
- Non-textile Floor Coverings: tough and slip-resistant
Our innovative light weight and soft touch products provide a comfort level that leads the industry, as well as 50% more flexibility, which allows our designers to create the most accepted seating characteristics in the industry. We can produce our patterns in continuous form, eliminating any seams between the material selections. Our highly-trained experts design products to your exact specifications for color, weight, texture, and skidability, ensuring you get precisely what you need for your application.
We are always upgrading our machinery and equipment, and making necessary upgrades to our facility to increase our capabilities. As the aviation industry focuses more on passenger comfort and experience, our product catalog includes solutions for the latest advancements, including passenger suites with showers, beds, and dining tables.
