At Britax, we believe family life should be lived without limit. A world where parents and children are free to make the most of every moment together. And we think it's our responsibility to make this happen. By driving safety standards to ensure children have never been better protected on the move. By pushing boundaries in smart design to make life in motion run smoothly. By extending a helping hand – or two – and always celebrating the journey.
We've been leading the way in child safety technology for more than 70 years. Always innovating, always focusing on what's best for the child, always going beyond 'good enough'. From Europe's best-selling car seat brand, we've become one of the brands most trusted by American families since we launched here in 1996.
Since then, we've revolutionized side impact protection, transformed safe seat installation, and introduced a range of smart strollers designed around the changing needs of today's families.
Our ongoing, open-ended conversation with parents is complemented by our work with car manufacturers, government bodies, and child passenger safety experts – collaborating, advising and using our industry-leading testing facilities to continually find ways to give parents the products and the reassurance to live family life without limit.
Because we believe in helping every parent and every child find their family freedom.
Britax. Be free.
At Britax we believe it's our job to push boundaries so that families can make the most of every moment together. By tackling mobility challenges that have an impact on family life. By driving standards to make our world a safer place for children to travel.
Like our revolutionary ClickTight Installation System...
Three out of four car seats are installed incorrectly. We believe this is unacceptable – so, in 2013, we introduced ClickTight, a game-changing technology that makes safe car seat installation as simple as buckling a seatbelt.
And our industry-leading Side Impact Protection...
Side-on collisions make up one in three car crashes – therefore, offering superior side impact protection has always been one of our top priorities. We created the first car seat walls lined with energy-absorbing EPS foam in 1996. We set new standards for head and neck stability with the market's first energy-absorbing headrest in 2002. And in 2009, we designed America's first external cushions with energy-diverting compression.
And our standard-setting stroller maneuverability...
We understand that active parents want to enjoy the best of both worlds – the freedom to move quickly on any terrain, as well as the ability to negotiate tight corners and city sidewalks with ease. So in 2005, wishes were granted with the BOB Revolution Stroller and it's revolutionary lockable, swiveling front wheel. BOB, now part of the Britax family of brands, offers active parents speed without compromise.
And our superior SafeCell Impact Protection...
Because we don't settle for 'safe enough' our team of experts worked to create an integrated system of safety components that protect well beyond the federal safety standards for car seats. Launching in 2010, SafeCell's innovative technologies combine to provide exceptional energy absorption and movement limitation to protect your child better than ever in a crash.
