Spinneybeck Inc., a manufacturer of high-end flame-retardant upholstery leathers, recently introduced its new Forte leather product, which the company claims is the world’s first upholstery leather designed specifically for the aviation industry. A full-grain, aniline-dyed cowhide with a highly durable finish that is abrasion and tear resistant, Forte exceeds all technical requirements for aviation interiors, including holding an FAA FAR 8110-3 vertical burn certificate. Offered in 80 stock colors, Forte can also be delivered in custom coloring four weeks after cutting approval. Spinneybeck also offers in-house DER certification at no additional charge.
