Testing for Durability


Component Testing

At Britax we realize the importance of each component of the seat and how they contribute to the protection that the seat provides for your child. In order to ensure that each component maintains its structural integrity throughout the life of your child seat we invest in testing individual components on each product. Tests conducted may include:

• Static buckle and harness testing
• Micro slip testing
• Harness webbing strength testing
• Buckle durability cycling
• LATCH hook strength
• Pendulum testing
• Vibration testing
• Environmental testing – testing components in extreme environmental conditions including heat, cold and varying humidity levels
