IGB is your partner for the certification of aircraft interior equipment. With quality Finite Element Method (FEM) calculations and unambiguous data reports, IGB can facilitate swift acceptance by certifying authorities.
IGB specializes in the delivery of high quality reports that forms the basis of certification approval. We handle all aspects of product certification and report data clearly and without ambiguity so that certifying authorities will approved a product with a minimal delay. We use the industry standard Finite Element Modelling and Analysis (FEMA) for strength substantiation analysis; but IGB can also advise and run actual tests when required.
More than a Decade Experience
With more than a decade experience in the certification of aircraft interiors, galleys and galley inserts, we have developed extensive knowledge of the processes involved in airworthiness. We work daily with JAR/FAR requirements, as well as we have worked on products in development or now flying in Airbus (A320, A330, A340, A380) and Boeing (B737, B757, B777) aircraft. We have established communication channels with the various certifying authorities and we are able to handle the vast range of specific airline demands.
What makes us different? In the 10 years of operating in this industry, we strive to find the most efficient pathway in everything we do. To achieve this, we combine our technical knowledge and programming skills on specialized in-house software for data acquisition to ensure an expeditious approval from the certifying authority.
