Britax are a leading manufacturer of baby and child car seats plus pushchairs and buggies. Founded in the 1930's Britax have been leading the way in safety for generations. In the 1960's Britax designed their first child car seat and ever since have been setting and exceeding safety standards globally. With their own high tech test facilities in Andover Britax develop new safety standards that aim to reduce injury and improve ease of use.
One of the safety standards we are all familiar with is ISOFIX. This was co-developed in partnership between Volkswagen and Britax back in 1997 with the aim of simplifying installation and ultimately reducing misuse. Since 2004 this system has been part of the EU test standard used by all manufacturers. But the Britax system us unique in that is incorporates a pivot system called pivot link. This patented system conducts the energy from the collision down into the vehicle seat before any forward rotation happens creating a two stage movement instead on one as found on some rigid ISOFIX systems. The result of this two stage movement is a more controlled deceleration and reduced forces exerted through the car seat passenger.
