EFW, a leading composite and passenger to freighter conversion specialist, has launched a lightweight, robust Cabin Cargo Box for flexible storage concepts. The solution allows airlines to boost freight capacity in the main cabin of passenger aircraft to its maximum. The Cabin Cargo Box movable on wheels offers an easy and fast loading and unloading.

"With its size of 1 x1 x 1,55 m (40 x 40 x 60 in) the Cabin Cargo Box offers a loading of up to 200 kg (440 lbs) at a tare weight of 28 kg. This specification fits well with all common PAX doors and is applicable for all narrow and widebody aircraft. It allows a side by side in a row principle of three boxes for passenger cabins," the German company said on its website.

The Cabin Cargo Box comes with an installation kit with latches designed to perfectly match with the seat rowing system at predefined positions and to ensure a safe and quick installation. The box can be realised as a one side open version locked with nets or as a closed version either by canvas or by a solid door. 

If for example, a full cargo composition is applied to an A330-200, a volume of up to 145 m³ and a payload of nearly 19 tons can be shipped with just one flight in addition to the belly capacity. 

The Cabin Cargo Box solution is an advanced opportunity to implement individual cargo solutions optimised to airlines needs with just minor modifications: flexible and reversible.
