Win At Business: Private Jet Interior Design Tips for Elite Owners

Take a peek inside the latest private jet interior design trends to help owners win at business

For owners of private aircraft and business jets, the importance of luxury style and appeal cannot be overlooked, especially if your goal is to create a welcoming business environment to entertain clients.

Not only are luxurious aircraft interiors capable of elevating a space aesthetically, but these beautifully designed interiors can also be extraordinarily fluid and functional. High-end materials, flowing lines, and matching color schemes can dramatically influence the ambiance of your space while also offering sophisticated efficiency.

What’s the result of this investment? A more engaging and inviting atmosphere that will unmistakingly contribute to business success. Discover why elite owners need to stay current on the latest private jet interior design trends to wow valued guests.

The Importance of Private Jet Interior Design

During the Golden Age of air travel, the glamor of flight was understood and appreciated by all. Cabin interiors were accentuated with thoughtful accents, detailed patterns, and premium materials. Although this glamor has been lost in the mainstream, elite private aircraft owners are capable of delivering this signature experience to sophisticated passengers.

By matching luxurious designs for the aircraft interior with brilliant decorative colors for aircraft interior parts, business owners can realize the full benefits of enhanced interior spaces. Supported by the ideal setting, any business flight can easily set in motion future working relationships, translating in-flight engagement to boardroom handshakes.

Latest Developments in the Private Jet Design Sector

The goal is not to pursue just any interior design scheme for your private jet. There is an unmistakable art to achieve your desired business aesthetic that feels like an exuberant luxury escape.

Fortunately, there are many modern design concepts that can provide private jets with a sleek and minimalistic look that creates the ideal ambiance. Premium finishes and first-class materials can be used to impart a lasting impression of confidence and luxury.

Trending and Classic Private Jet Interior Designs

Currently, some of the most elegant and sophisticated interior designs in aviation can be found on private jets such as the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, Airbus aircraft, and the lavish Airship Kyoto. In particular, Dreamliners with the “Azure” interior design scheme have inspired various new design ideas. This lavish Azure scheme showcases design elements such as marble walls, modeled ceilings, and bold floral prints in neutral color tones.

An Uptick in Modern, Vintage, and Classic Design Trends

Many Airbus ACJ319 models have recently been enhanced with vintage elements similar to the first-class luxury passenger trains of the late 1920s. Highlighting the best of the Art Deco era, these trending design schemes implement plush materials, real wood accents, bold contrasting colors, gold detailing, and a range of statement pieces.

Eastern and Western Trends Combine for Trendy Vibes

Additionally, combining Eastern and Western design elements is another great way to create an elegant ambiance in the air. Geometric patterns and flowing color schemes add visual appeal. Separated spaces with decorative screens can make cabins feel larger, creating a sense of space to allow passengers to think and engage. Pops of color and bold prints can create a feeling of depth as well.

Creating Lavish Luxury with Subtle and Tasteful Materials

For elite owners looking for a touch of subtle luxury, tasteful accents such as wood and gold with high gloss polishes can create a sophisticated yet comfortable ambiance. Neutral colors are always classy and high attention to detail can enhance a space with voguish panache.

Other trending designs work to make a statement with bold lines and warm earth tones. Clean lines and freestanding features create focal points to draw the eye. Alternatively, savvy colors can impact the entire mood of any contemporary space. The same is true for textures, which can add a sensation of tactility. Well laid out matching interior designs can create a functional space while also offering high-end upper echelons ambiance.

Enhanced Illumination with Interior Lighting

Finally, lighting must be considered. As with all luxury designs, lighting can make or break the ambiance of a space. As seen in most large-cabin aircraft, expansive windows and light tones offer airy yet elegant appeal. Carefully applied lighting solutions can create similar effects within bedrooms, bathrooms, and the main passenger cabin.

Introducing Our New National Sales Manager Amanda Gilley Taylor

Amanda Gilley Taylor has been hired as HighTech Finishing National Sales Manager supporting the customer buying experience of aviation interior plating for aircraft interior parts

We are eager to announce the hiring of aviation leader Amanda Gilley Taylor to the position of National Sales Manager.

Amanda is joining HighTech Finishing after an extensive career as a customer sales executive for companies that deliver products for the aircraft interior. In her new role for HighTech, Amanda will be responsible for refocusing the customer buying experience with an emphasis on our company’s artisan craftsmanship and quality approach to the decorative plating of aircraft interior parts.

“There is so much potential in the aviation industry right now and we have a great team at HighTech to capitalize on those opportunities,” says Amanda. “Decorative plating is the crown jewel of an aircraft’s interior scheme, but it often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. I look forward to supporting our current customers and leveraging my professional relationships in the industry to create new, long-lasting customer accounts.”

Building Relationships With Aviation Customers Across the Globe

Under Amanda’s direction, we anticipate expanding into new customer markets. Utilizing our company’s trusted brand recognition in the aviation industry, Amanda will be supporting North American expansion into OEMs and refurbishment centers.

Amanda will also support our global expansion efforts reaching into the European and Middle Eastern business aviation markets. There are additional opportunities to support charter companies and seek out partnerships with fractional and management companies.

“Amanda is the ideal fit to take on the role of National Sales Manager because of her experience in the aviation industry and her track record of customer success in previous roles,” says Rick Niefield, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Her enthusiasm and passion for the aviation industry coupled with her commitment to our company’s core values of integrity and customer relationships is the winning combination we were looking for to support our growth objectives.”

Prior to joining HighTech, Amanda represented veneer and custom carpet companies that provided products for the aviation interior. She also supported a start-up company in the mid-2000s, where she fell in love with the aviation industry and started to build relationships in the industry. Amanda’s career highlights include:

  • Gaining vendor priority from accounts that previously had allegiance to a competitor.
  • Spearheading the development of product strategies to support refurbishment centers.
  • Managing a team of sales representatives to support expansion efforts in aviation.
  • Developing new product lines to assist designers in the refurbishment market to more easily select a carpet pattern to coordinate with the jet’s existing veneer.

“I am a product junkie, and decorative plating will be no exception. I am thrilled that my relationships in the industry led me to this family at HighTech,” Amanda says. “I have seen some incredible facilities during my career, including logging and slicing veneer overseas, several different carpet mills with their unique intricacies, and now this delicate art of decorative plating.

“However, my favorite experiences will always lie with my customer interactions. In my perspective, when I save my customers’ projects by offering solutions to problems or obstacles, that’s when everyone wins.”

Under Amanda’s leadership, we look forward to elevating the aircraft interior for our customers through an enhanced customer experience for decorative aircraft interior plating. We also anticipate building new customer relationships as we continue to serve the global aviation market.

Utilize Our Spectacular Gold Color Plating Options

Aircraft interior part treated by HighTech Finishing using gold color plating

Since ancient times, the precious gold metal has been considered a symbol of strength, wealth, and dignity. Not only is gold beautiful in its luster, but it brings a warm richness to any space or object that — when done correctly — doesn’t feel over the top, but rather the mark of elegance.

In recent years, gold has made a stately comeback in subtle, yet substantial ways. From gold accents gleaming on the catwalks at the most coveted fashion shows to sleek drawer pulls and elegant stove accents to classy coffee tables, it is clear that designers are embracing this impressive trend without being gaudy with exaggerated extravagance.

In addition, when used near any light source, the warmth of gold’s unique glow and the mood it creates is unmatched by any other metal, which makes it the ideal metal finish for aircraft interior parts.

At HighTech Finishing, our impressive list of over 30 brilliant and unique gold finishes allows interior designers and business jet owners alike the opportunity to draw inspiration and create that perfect balance of using just the right amount of gold on interior parts to enhance the overall aircraft interior. Let’s examine this opportunity to use gold color plating on key parts to achieve a brilliant look and feel.

Gold Color Plating Creates The Right Environment

When it comes to utilizing gold on elements of the aircraft interior, less is often more. The power of the overall effect is in its purposeful placements. Too little, and the gold goes unnoticed. Too much, and it can look gaudy.

With the help of our experienced team, we can help you select the perfect gold finish for your interior. This way, we will plate a carefully selected lineup of aircraft interior parts to help create a polished and posh environment desired for today’s aircraft interiors.

Consider Your Options From Our Gold Family

– For a delicate, softer feel, our Rose Gold finish delivers a soothing, yet lustrous sophisticated look. Rose gold, with its blend of blonde, gold, and light pink, never goes out of style. Add any one of our Rose Gold metal finishes to seat buckles, cup holders, or bathroom faucets, and the effect is undeniably elegant and en vogue.

– Opulent golds, such as our 24K Gold Polish Bright or Hammertone finishes, when accented appropriately, bring the luxurious old-world classic style of Kings and Queens into the aircraft without being ostentatious. Glittering door handles, brilliant latches, and bright table bases may seem insignificant, but they seamlessly pack a powerful punch together, and the effect is all together exquisite.

– No matter what brilliant gold finish you select, the beautiful benefit of gold is that it pairs well with just about every color palette imaginable. Whether the seats are a deep cognac or the carpet is a rich navy, every selection from our gold family brings out the best in the colors it accents. Gold truly is the standard in which every other metal must follow.

What About Mixed Metals?

Just because gold is trending does not mean that aircraft interior designers must abandon every other metallic finish or start from scratch if additional metal finishes are already onboard.

Mixing metals is a transitional trend gaining traction. Adding a little gold to silver finishes or combining copper with white gold is a hot trend. We expect this trend to continue long into the future, allowing our customers the opportunity to get creative about mixing various metals to create a desired, luxurious look.

Ask us about finding the perfect balance that matches your customers’ preferences. We certainly appreciate the opportunity to participate in your creative thinking around introducing multiple color options for aircraft interior parts.

HighTech Finishing is committed to creating customer value for our aviation clients by going beyond the conventional customer-supplier relationship. One of the primary ways we achieve this objective for our clients is by proactively building up our employees.

We continually reinvest in our employees and empower them to do what’s best for our customers. William Gonzalez is a great example of this as an employee who grew into a brand-new role that would benefit our clients.

As we announced last year, we were the first company in the decorative plating industry to introduce the role of a Technical Field Representative, which William stepped into during 2020. Even during the height of the pandemic, we believed it was critical to introduce this role to personally visit customer locations, check on the performance of plated parts, and resolve any issues directly with the customer.

There are other great examples of how our employees have grown over time and remained committed to supporting our clients’ latest needs through long-term employment at HighTech.

Andres started in wiring and racking, then moved to gold plating, and now masking. He is exceptionally skilled at plating faucets in 24k Gold using various types of design templates.

“With my plating knowledge, it helps me figure out which of the different masking techniques works best for each customer part,” Andres says.

Andres particularly enjoys fellowship with his co-workers, the schedule, benefits that our company offers to employees, and the opportunities to grow. We appreciate Andres’ dedication, especially supporting the creation of brilliant gold-plated parts for our customers!

Ricardo Gonzalez

We are very proud of our 50-step decorative plating process that ensures the highest quality production, finish, and delivery of aircraft interior parts for our customers. Ricardo Rodriguez is instrumental in ensuring that we follow this process every time for every customer.IMG 0475

Ricardo has been with our company for 10+ years. In his current role, he provides Quality Assurance (QA) services to ensure that each finished product meets customer requirements and expectations.

Over the past decade, Ricardo has acquired a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience in industry best practices for the plating process. He has expanded his knowledge base in the ISO9001/AS9100 process requirements, enabling us to apply zero-defect finishes on every part, every time.

“I enjoy working with the HighTech Finishing team and implementing improvements to our QA process,” Ricardo says. “I truly appreciate the people and camaraderie of this team.”

Tani Rodriguez

At HighTech, our customer service standards are very high. We aim to exceed expectations by providing more than just support to our customers. Tani Rodriguez enables us to meet these high standards by serving as an excellent customer service liaison.IMG 0493

Which Brilliant Finish Do You Prefer for Aircraft Interior Parts?

HighTech Finishing offers 130+ brilliant decorative finishes to apply to aircraft interior parts

Brilliant ideas. Lucrative mergers. Life-long memories. Pivotal moments in business and life do not always transpire in the board room or on the golf course. Sometimes, the actual journey aboard your business aircraft is where these significant moments happen, rather than the destination. Shouldn’t the journey help curate and foster such occasions?

We are a product of our environment, after all, and enhancing the space where substantial events are free to come to fruition is where HighTech Finishing flourishes. Tapping into our impressive list of 130+ brilliant metal finishes for aircraft interior parts will effectively upgrade the look and feel of your aircraft interior to unprecedented levels.

The only hard part is choosing which aircraft interior finishes to apply to each metal part in your aircraft as you strive to create an unmistakable homefield advantage.

Discover Your Preferred Finishes to Aircraft Interior Parts

Let us indulge your senses as you envision the perfect combination of dazzling colors to create a winning aesthetic that wow will business partners, VIPs, and favored guests.

The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Family

Within our lustrous gold, silver, and bronze metal families, there are 48 brilliant finishes to choose from. We have chosen to highlight a few of our unique favorites.

– Rose gold has made quite an impression on the world as of late with its application to everything from high-end smartphones and watches to fine jewelry and shoes. Our Rose Gold Frosted takes this trend to the next level, giving it a frosted, fun, slightly feminine layer. With extremely subtle hints of pink woven into the gold, it is the perfect softer palate for a gentler look.

Imagine stepping onto your aircraft and being enveloped in a sea of Sangria Gold Satin. Like the drink where it gets its namesake, you will immediately feel as if you have arrived at a grand vacation. Just barely brighter than Rose Gold Satin, it has a brushed-on look and a deeper hue.

There’s nothing quite as pure as gold, but white gold takes it to elevated heights. Pure White Gold Satin is just as dreamy as it sounds with creamy greys and whites perfectly blended into a velvety smooth metal finish. Similar to the brushed look of Sangria Gold Satin, Pure White Gold Pearlite echoes the luminous color of Pure White Gold Satin, but with fine brush strokes.

Like a delicate silk glove that fits perfectly on the skin is our Silver Pearlite finish.  Peaceful to look at, it bathes you in luxury with its luscious silvery-ivory look.

A bit higher in nature commanding power is the High Gloss Pewter finish, which is a step above in deepness of color than the Silver Pearlite with brush stoke essences.

Bronze is never in third place among our finishes. And, in fact, our Bronze Satin finish wins every time with its soft subtle lines and sleek finish in a more muted color than gold.

Finally, the “wow-factor” color belongs to our Bronze Polished Bright. Stepping aboard an aircraft to such brilliance and brightness will immediately brighten any mood and set the right tone for business to be conducted.

The Chrome, Brass, and Nickel Family

Our chrome, brass, and nickel families are comprised of 27 beautiful finishes.

With peppered bits of silver and gray, our Chrome Frosted is a softer blend of colors than its harsh predictable predecessor, straight chrome. However, if a more refined and statelier feel is the look you are going for, Chrome Antique is pure perfection in a warmer shade.

Brass Medium Aged Walnut channels a board room presence with a golden glow intertwined with dark thin lines. Brass has never looked more beautiful and creamier than the Brass Pearlite finish. Much less astringent than brass alone, it is the perfect marriage of gold and ivory tones creating an exquisite environment.

Nickel doesn’t have to be boring, and our Nickel Swirl and Nickel Hammertone are a unique twist on this often-overlooked color. Bright, silvery finishes with interesting etched swirls are intertwined with one another creating a creative, eye-catching pattern.

A highlighted smoldering finish is the essence of our Smoked Nickel Polished Bright metal. It’s less dark than the Swirl and Hammertone, but just as dramatic to create a unique environment to close the big deal.

The Copper, Black, and Platinum Family

There are 20 metal finishes to choose from in our copper, black, and platinum families.

Among the more unique color finishes to choose from, but no less stunning is copper.  The addition of satin with its soothing qualities makes our Copper Pearlite finish perfect for making esteemed guests feel at ease. Goldish-brown hues with flecks of pearl distinguish Copper Light Aged from all the rest.

Similar to the Nickel Hammertone but darker and deeper in color is the prominent Black Pearle Hammertone. With its deep, yet delicate swirls, it commands attention.

Is there anything more elegant than Pitch Black Soft Velvet? It is an unforgettable finish prestigious enough for the most discerning of tastes.

Lest we forget about our platinum finishes. Platinum derives its name from the Spanish word platino, meaning “little silver,” but there is nothing “little” about our Platinum Polished Bright and Platinum Frosted finishes. Bright and bold, these silvery-white finishes are big on their glowing pigmentation with the added iridescence on the Platinum Frosted.

There’s no telling the success you will experience when the aircraft interior is enhanced by this dazzling array of colors applied to each aircraft interior part.

Luxury Design Tip: Matching Plated Parts to Aircraft Fabrics

Aircraft interior of private jet including aircraft seat fabric and metal parts

Every aspect of the aircraft interior for a private plane or business jet can be viewed as an opportunity to utilize color to create a cohesive look and feel. For aircraft interior designers, there is a unique opportunity to create a distinguished look by matching the color of aircraft seat fabric to the metal interior parts.

Think of this opportunity to achieve excellence the same way that you would match each unique piece in the interior of a home to create a welcoming experience for every guest who steps across the threshold.

Home is where the heart is, but flying privately above the distractions of everyday life is a different kind of fascinating experience not universally available. Like the home, it should be a special and sacred space. To that effect, a personal private aircraft should be expertly designed to be a home away from home where the intimate network of life happens.

The same level of comfort, coordinated aesthetics, and tranquility that is often painstakingly detailed in the home can also be replicated to a certain degree in a private aircraft. Gone are the days of drab uniform carpet and seat fabrics with limited plating colors available.

Today, thanks to advanced interior design capabilities and our expertise with aircraft interior parts at HighTech Finishing, aircraft interior designers can use an array of color options to create an impressive final product that will dramatically elevate the aircraft experience for your clients.

Consider a Holistic Approach to Aircraft Interior Design

To say that something is more than the sum of its parts is saying that the final product is better than you would expect from the individual parts. There is something in the way that disparate objects are combined to create a different quality that goes beyond the capabilities of the individual parts.

This concept in holism relates to the interior of a private aircraft to the effect that the total impression of each designed part interacting with one another should be greater than the effectiveness of the interior parts when acting in isolation from one another.

A custom metal finish on interior parts such as belt-buckle latches and door handles is exquisite on its own when selecting from any one of our 150+ decorative metal finishes. Complimenting tailored, client-specific interior leather and fabrics will help bring out the elegance of each selected metal finish.

This approach truly elevates the interior of the aircraft to flawless levels even for the most discriminating of tastes. The result is a seamless look and remarkable feel that captivates the eyes and awakens the senses.

Leverage Our Attention to Detail in Metal Finishing

When the interior of a house is designed, each piece is brought together in a specific manner. Each item acts flawlessly together, becoming more powerful in evoking a certain desired ambiance than if the items were in exclusivity from one another.

Most often is the case that one particular color, fabric, or favored piece becomes the design focal point, and everything else is curated around this item. A private aircraft is a luxurious extension of its owner’s home and should be no different in the way it is designed — with every detail accounted for to maximize the experience.

Whether the starting focal point is an opulent, textured, gold-flecked metal seat buckle, or a patterned plush carpet with hints of silvery threads, each interior piece can be — and ought to be — brought convincingly together to create a visually appealing cohesive look specifically designed for the customer’s desires.

At HighTech Finishing, we specialize in helping designers elevate the interior of the aircraft by capturing ideas and turning those ideas into solutions. We’ll help you think bigger about matching the various interior parts such as fabrics, leathers, carpet, and metal finishes to bring your vision to life.

Our superior color matching capabilities enable us to match virtually any color from paint swatches, fabrics, woods, competitor samples, or literally any other material found in aircraft interiors. Consider our impressive roster of metal finishes.

Additionally, we have the ability to create new decorative finishes as well. If you can dream it, we can create it. Just take a look at our work meeting a customer request for something unique, new, and intentionally whimsical. The result: the introduction of Pitch Black Stardust. What would you like for us to craft?

Contact Us to Match Your Interior Fabric and Metal Parts

As an aircraft interior designer, it’s time to bring your client’s aircraft interior to the next level. Partner with us to achieve this goal. We can help you identify exciting opportunities to match aircraft fabrics and metal-plated interior parts.

Our experts are skilled in making an overwhelming process feel less daunting. Contact us today to get started on using color in a new way. We can be reached toll-free at 800-949-0124 or by email at info@htf.net.

 

24K Gold + Black Pearl = Retro Look Options for Aircraft Interior Parts

HighTech Finishing provides black pearl + 24K gold combinations for aircraft interior parts

For aircraft interior designers, we recognize the importance of identifying current, modern, and amazing color combinations to wow clients and their guests who step inside a luxury aircraft or business jet. However, a few customers are now opting for the classic retro look color combination of gold and black.

Imagine 24K Gold that is partnered with a luscious Black Pearl finish on various aircraft interior parts. The results are so transcendent that your clients will lavish in the luxurious feel of the interior of their aircraft.

Imagine the Possibilities of 24K Gold & Black Pearl

At HighTech Finishing, we offer nine stunning 24K Gold decorative plating finishes and five dedicated Black Pearl finishes. Each brilliant decorative metal finish makes a gorgeous impression on its own. But, in combination, the contrasting colors are magnificent. Allow us to illuminate the cosmetic appeal of each color family.

24K Gold Selections

Arguably the most coveted of all the metals in the world, 24K gold is authentically pure in nature, without any silver, zinc, nickel, copper, or any other metal found within it. That makes it the purest type of gold available with 24 out of 24 parts consisting exclusively of gold.

With such an impeccable starting point, the variations of color compositions are simply spectacular. Our 24K gold finishes include:

HT103 24K GOLD FROSTED

  • 24K Gold Polished Bright
  • 24K Gold Satin
  • 24K Gold Frosted
  • 24K Gold Light Aged
  • 24K Gold Medium Aged
  • 24K Gold Dark Aged
  • 24K Matte Gold
  • 24K Gold Hammertone
  • 24K Gold Pearllite

Black Pearl Selections

Sophisticated in essence and symbolic in mystery, the color black symbolizes power, elegance, and strength. It evokes feelings of serious prestige in the utmost formal and authoritative way.  The soft addition of a pearl texture — naturally perfect with a glittery sheen — elevates the color black to exquisite heights.

A natural black pearl is more mysterious than its traditional cream cousin. The reason being it takes extremely rare conditions to form pearls that have that dark, mysteriously iridescent glow. With those characteristics in mind, we offer an amazing selection of black pearl finishes:

  • Black Pearl Polished BrightHT203 BLACK PEARL FROSTED
  • Black Pearl Frosted
  • Black Pearl Hammertone
  • Black Pearl Pearllite
  • Black Pearl Satin

24K Gold + Black Pearl = Astonish Your Clients

Elevate the standard of beauty for your client’s private aircraft. What better way to heighten the interior of the aircraft than with the purest of golds and the rarest of black pearl. There are several different combinations we recommend to achieve a breathtaking look and feel.

– The brightest and most brilliant of the metal finish options we have available is the 24K Gold Polished Bright. Combined with Black Pearl Polished Bright, the results are nothing short of stunning. Guests onboard the aircraft will be immediately enveloped in a bright blanket of powerful luxury.

– Softer to the eyes and silky to the touch is the combination of 24K Gold Satin and Black Pearl Satin. Every metal surface travelers touch inside the private aircraft will be like touching a velvety sheet, slightly darker in nature than the polished bright color families, but with a complex depth of color character.

– A unique textured color finish available at HighTech finishing is the hammertone. It is a special finish with a surface that looks just like hammered metal. Selecting 24K Gold Hammertone with a dark Nickel or Pitch Black finish creates one of the most unique, multi-dimensional layers of colors. The gold and black are so effortlessly intertwined that it is difficult to discern one color from the next, resulting in a hammered mixture of strong beauty.

– Additionally, adding a frosted layer such as the Black Pearl Frosted to any finish adds a layer of stardust to an already perfect finish underneath. A subtle sparkle and a shimmery sheen gives the perfect delicate touch.

Contact Us to Discuss Black Pearl 24K Gold Combinations

There are many additional color combinations within these two color families. Although the sky may be the limit, we’re here to help bring these choices back down to earth to help you identify the choices that are best for your clients.

Consistency in your brand messaging is key. One of the distinguished ways that you can achieve this is through branding the metal plating pieces inside your private aircraft.  

From seat buckles and latches to ashtrays and hinges, basically, any metal interior part can be custom-plated by HighTech Finishing to reinforce your brand. Whether that is a monogram, a symbol, a logo, a phrase, or any other type of personalization, leaving your individual mark on the interior metal parts of the aircraft not only elevates your brand to the next level, it solidifies the feel of your brand for every single person privileged enough to come onboard.

Regardless of whether you desire for a single metal item to be personalized or if you have a more extravagant vision for several elements inside the aircraft to contain your unique look, these days, everyone wants their own exclusive touch. Why not you?

How We Support Business Branding

An individual can have a personal brand exclusive from their business brand, or it could be one and the same. Business branding is centered on the practice of promoting the brand name of a corporate entity, as opposed to specific products or services. This could be your company logo, a symbol, or even a catchphrase.

Personalizing and customizing the interior of your business jet is just one more touchpoint that your clients will see and remember. Keep in mind that your clients and customers are bombarded with messages through a variety of advertising mediums. Onboard your aircraft, they will only see one. Yours. This leaves a lasting visual memory and accessible brand recall when they think about your company.

If your branding is effective, then it will differentiate you from the competitive noise and allow you to build trust with prospective clients. By engraving your logo, symbol, or name on metal interior pieces, your company’s brand creates a seamless transition from the board room to marketing to customer decisions.

And, unlike temporary means of advertising, metal branding is permanent. Almost any business owner can travel private, but the smart and savvy ones have reinforced their message by carrying the branding through to their aircraft interiors.

When it comes to creating a brilliant look for the interior of your private aircraft, you want to be sure that every decision supports the aesthetic you are going for. This includes deciding between our many offerings including chrome or nickel plating options for aircraft interior parts.

Although you can never go wrong when making the chrome vs. nickel decision, it is still important to understand the visual differences between these two finishes to achieve the absolutely ideal look and feel for your aircraft interior parts.

Chrome Plating Finishes Delivered by HighTech Finishing

For a modern and sleek look, chrome plating is a wonderful choice. It gives a smooth, shiny, uniform, and contemporary interior feel. Although part of the familiar silver-grey family palate, we offer many distinctions within that realm, as detailed below in the finish options we offer. HT602 chrome satin brushed skin

Our chrome family of finishes include the following.

  • Polished Bright is lustrous and clean with a continuous effortless look.
  • Satin Brushed is delicate with faint exquisite traces of brush stroke lines.
  • Frosted is finished with an opaque speckle.
  • Antique has a slightly increased brownish color.
  • Pearllite, as the name suggests, resembles a silvery silky pearl

In tandem with its state-of-the-art look, chrome offers distinct advantages. Primarily, its ability to withstand heavy customer use while maintaining the integrity of the part due to its high level of strength as a metal.

Interior aircraft parts will generally, over time, have wear and tear on them, scratches, and unfortunate dents. This can lead to a shorter life span of the part and thus costly to replace frequently.

However, minor physical faults can be addressed. This will completely revitalize the appearance, making it look brand-new. Parts are then easier to clean and maintain, ensuring that the aircraft stays pristine at all times. You can clean and polish any finish with a non-abrasive cloth.

Nickel Plating Finishes Delivered by HighTech FinishingHT402 nickel satin brushed skin

Nickel is another wonderful, robust choice for aircraft interior parts with its silvery-white luster and slight golden tinge.

With its bright, lustrous appeal, nickel provides an attractive finish to interior parts with a glossy, and a distinct, yellowish hue. We have 12 brilliant nickel options to choose from.

Our Nickel family of finishes includes the following.

  • Polished Bright is creamy, light, and uniform with a hint of pearly gray.
  • Satin Brushed is a bit darker in gray with fine brush stroke essences.
  • Frosted is similar to Frosted Chrome, but darker in nature.
  • Matte Nickel is somewhat further cloudy, but similar to Polished Bright in smoothness.
  • Light Aged (Antique) is relatively more yellow than Satin Brushed with delicate lines.
  • Medium Aged (Antique) is a step darker than Medium Aged with increased gray tones but similar lines as Light Aged Antique.
  • Dark Aged (Antique), the deepest and darkest of the Nickel Antique colors, is opaque with subtle lines.
  • Hammertone has comparable color properties to Light Aged Antique but is finished with a swirl texture.
  • Smoked Nickel Polished Bright has an enhanced brilliance to its counterpart Polished Bright.
  • Smoked Nickel Satin Brushed has hints of greenish gray with discriminating brush lines.
  • Pearllite resembles a silky gold and ivory luxurious pearl.
  • Swirl is similar to Smoked Nickel Polished Bright but has greater prominent swirl finishes on top in contrast to the smaller swirls on Hammertone.
