There has been continued interest in heightened security solutions for the cockpit following the September 11 2001 (9/11) terrorist attacks. In particular The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) have been petitioning to mandate secondary cockpit barriers. New Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for all new to market US aircraft come into effect early summer 2025.
In response to changing legislation the AmSafe Bridport secondary barrier is a textile based secondary barrier to provide at least a 5 second delay for intruders attempting to enter the cockpit. Most importantly our secondary barrier solutions are fully customisable. The highly engineered textile barrier can be used flexibly to work around all monuments and can be retrofit to different aircraft layouts. It is lighter than a fixed door solution and can be stored easily when not in use.
