Abstract

Abstract A sliding system element with seat rail profile interface is characterized in that the standardized interface allows the attachment of any type of seats onto the sliding system. The standardized interface could be a segment of current seat rails. A seat rail crown could be integrated into the sliding block or assembled onto it.

Sliding system element with seat rail profile interface 1. Technical field The technical solution relates to an improvement for a linear guiding system for passenger seats. 2. Current problem To change the cabin configuration in aircrafts the passenger seats can be moved in x- direction on the seat rails. Therefore the passenger seats are fixed onto a sliding system and the sliding system is attached to the seat rails. Figure 1 shows a conventional solution. The left side shows a seat or a seat row attached to a linear guiding system with an interface for a dedicated seat type. The right side shows in detail a linear guiding system with interface for a front and a rear set leg attachment.

Fig. 1: conventional solution

Figure 2 shows in detail the adapter for a specific seat type attachment. The adapter geometry varies from seat type to seat type. The sliding block is movable attached to the seat rail and therefore the complete seat or the seat row can be moved on the seat rail.

The overall problem of prior art is the need of individual adaption to fix the passenger seat onto a sliding system. 3. Problem solution and description of the solution A standardized interface allows the attachment of any type of seats onto the sliding system. The standardized interface could be a segment of current seat rails. A seat rail crown could be integrated into the sliding block or assembled onto it. Figure 3 shows an example of a sliding block with an assembled seat rail crown segment.
