Britax understand that one of the most important safety decisions you will make for your child is choosing the right child car seat. For that reason, our safety technologies and innovations have pushed car seat development forward for 50 years. We truly lead the way in child car seat safety and deliver the safest range of child car seats in the world!
As safety leaders, we are advocates for prolonged safety, here’s how:
1) Rear Facing For Longer
We strongly recommend rear-facing for as long as possible as this form of travel supports a child’s head and neck substantially better in vehicle crashes. Even though the Australian Standards states you can forward face from 6 months, we recommend ‘Rear for a Year’ (at least) so that your most precious cargo gets the best start in life. That’s also why we design and manufacture child car seats that give you the opportunity to rear face for longer. Platinum PRO™ – our most advanced car seat yet can be used in rear-facing mode from birth to approximately 30 months and offers revolutionary dual layer head and torso Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT™).
2) Harnessed For Longer
It is important not to move your child from a convertible car seat to a booster seat too early. Research has shown that children aged between 2 and 5 years are 3.5 times at risk of serious injury when wearing an adult seatbelt and 4.2 times at risk of a head injury than children in a proper child restraint. Here at Britax Australia, we know ‘Harnessed For Longer’ is safer. Our Maxi Guard PRO™ is great example of a car seat which is suitable for growing children from approximately 6 months to 8 years of age. This forward-facing car seats with an in-built 6-point Hassle Free Harness™ grow with your child and, keep your child securely restrained and safer for longer.
Our easy to use, Hassle Free Harness™ automatically repositions the shoulder strap height as your child grows. There is no need to rethread harness, reducing the risk of incorrect installation and harness fitment.
3) Safety For Longer
It is important not to move your child to a vehicle seat before they are physically ready. You should only move your child out of their existing seat after they have grown past the shoulder height markers on their current seat. Our Kid Guard PRO™ is the only booster of its kind in Australia providing safety all the way up to double figures = 10 years (approx.). Not to mention this booster seat includes our patented innovation – SecureGuard™. This Anti-Submarining device makes our booster seats even safer by adding a 4th attachment point to the adult seat belt. This helps to keep the lap belt in an ideal position over the pelvic bones and better distributes the impact energy involved in frontal collisions. At the same time this allows our little wrigglers freedom of movement during the journey.
