SafeCell Impact Protection - Convertible Car Seats


Britax Carry Long System

WHAT

SafeCell Impact Protection is an integrated system of safety components that work together to protect your child well beyond the federal safety standards.  As the leader in safety technology, only Britax car seats have SafeCell Impact Protection.

All Britax convertible car seats feature our exclusive impact-absorbing base, tether and harness, our impact-stabilizing steel frame and various levels of side impact protection to form the integrated system of SafeCell Impact Protection.


WHERE


WHY

At Britax, we feel that "safe enough" simply isn't good enough for your child.  That's why our team of experts worked to create SafeCell Impact Protection.  SafeCell's innovative technologies combine to provide exceptional energy absorption and movement limitation in a collision, keeping your child safe and you free from worry along the way.


HOW

Each SafeCell Impact Protection technology has a separate function, but all work together to keep your child safe and secure in the event of a crash.

  • Impact-absorbing base compresses to absorb crash energy and counteract forward movement, keeping your child clear from the seat in front of them.
  • Impact-stabilizing steel frame gives you peace of mind knowing there is strength where you want it most, through the spine of the car seat reducing forward flex and at the connection points to the vehicle.
  • Impact-absorbing tether minimizes seat rotation with a unique two-strap design and slows forward movement with our patented rows of stitching that "give-way" one at a time in the event of a crash.
  • Impact-absorbing harness pads adsorb energy and reduce your child’s forward movement during an impact.

SIDE IMPACT PROTECTION
Side impact protection surrounds your child in safety. We offer varying levels of side impact protection in our different car seat models.

    • Side impact protection surrounds your child in a deep protective shell designed to absorb crash forces and shield your child from debris.
    • 2 layers of side impact protection provides an advanced level of protection: a deep protective shell absorbs crash forces and shields your child from debris, and an energy-absorbing headrest keeps your child's head and neck secure.
    • 3 layers of side impact protection provides our highest level of protection: a deep protective shell absorbs crash forces and shields your child from debris, an energy-absorbing headrest keeps your child's head and neck secure, and external cushions compress to divert energy away from your child and protect adjacent passengers.
