Aerospace series - General and installation requirements for passenger seat fittings

This European Standard specifies the installation and removal requirements and the space envelopes
for passenger seat fittings on aircraft. The purpose is to reduce the installation time and the tooling
required for seat installation by standardizing the seat attachment fasteners (fittings).

Luft- und Raumfahrt - Allgemeine und Einbau Anforderungen an die Sitzanbindung von Passagiersitzen

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Anforderungen an den Einbau und Abbau sowie die Freiräume für die Anbindungen von Passagiersitzen in Luftfahrzeugen fest. Ziel ist es, die Einbauzeit und die Menge der für den Sitzeinbau erforderlichen Werkzeuge zu verringern, indem die Sitzbefestigungsmittel (Anbindungen) genormt werden.

Série aérospatiale - Exigences générales et d'installation pour siège passager

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences d’installation et de démontage ainsi que les gabarits d'encombrement des ferrures de sièges passagers à bord. Elle a pour but de diminuer le temps d'installation et l'outillage exigé pour réaliser l'installation des sièges en normalisant les éléments de fixation des sièges (ferrures).

Aeronavtika - Splošne zahteve in zahteve za namestitev pritrdilnih elementov potniških sedežev

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve za namestitev in odstranitev ter prostorske okvire za pritrdilne elemente potniških sedežev na letalu. Namen je s standardizacijo sponk za pritrditev sedežev (pritrdilnih elementov sedežev) skrajšati čas namestitve in omejiti orodje, potrebno za namestitev sedeža.
