  • The adjustable Active Head Restraint (AHR™) is designed specifically with deeper side wings that shield and contain your child's head in a side impact crash. AHR™ grows with your child working with SICT™ to protect your child's head and to minimise impact forces. The headrest adjusts using a lever at the top and there is no need to uninstall the seat. This automatically adjusts the position of the shoulder straps so that they are positioned just above the child's shoulders. This ease of use allows parents to easily adjust the shoulder strap position avoiding incorrect use. The harness never has to be disconnected for removal of covers for washing nor height adjustment of the shoulder straps.

  • As cars are designed for average adult sizes, children in child safety restraint are often not positioned in these active safety zones (e.g. curtain airbag zone) in the vehicle. Maxi Guard PRO has a revolutionary dual side impact protection system (SICT™) to provide superior protection in case of a side crash. In the headrest there is a cushion that surrounds the head on 3 sides which protects the head against crash impact forces. The larger air cushion on the outside of the seat moulding is designed to reduce the crash forces on the child's torso, the chest and the child's heart. The SICT™ system is patented by Britax.

  • Platinum PRO can be installed in 2 ways. One is installed with the car's seatbelt and the top tether strap. The other is an ISOFIX compatible version with a pair of straps with connectors, adjusters and engagement and tension indicator. The top tether strap is still required to be fitted. Platinum PRO with ISOFIX compatible provides a firmer installation in all vehicles compared with the seatbelt installation method. ISOFIX was invented by Britax in conjunction with Volkswagon.

  • Initially, the Platinum PRO is fitted to the car in rear-facing mode for babies less than 12 months using the patented sliding storable stabilising bar. The seat is then turned to forward-facing once the child's shoulders reach either the lower shoulder height marker (approx. 12 months) or when the shoulders reaches the middle shoulder height marker (approx. 2 to 3 years of age). Once the Platinum PRO has been turned to face forward, the child can continue to use the seat until the child's shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker (approximately 4 years of age). Many children will stay in this restraint until they are over as the upper shoulder height marker allows for an estimated 95% of children.

    Predecessors included the Safe-n-Sound Meridian AHR and Tilt & Adjust which were awarded the Australian Design Award in 2006 and 2011 include seat belt lock-offs. The seat reclined into 4 positions in the forward-facing mode using a frontal recline lever and had the patented latch to prevent excessive recline that is used for rear-facing mode. The Platinum PRO now meets the 2013 Standard for Child Restraints and has an improved headrest adjustment system, improved side impact protection including the introduction of Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT™) and ISOFIX.

    One of the problems when a child gets into their seat or they are placed in to the seat they sit on the buckle making it annoying to pull out from under the child. The seat is fitted with a patented flip forward buckle pad (called EZ-Buckle system) which flips the buckle forward when the buckle tongues are released. Next time that the child gets in to the seat the buckle is still fitted forward and can be easily found to then engage the harness straps.

    Thermo5™ delivers the premium comfort your baby deserves. It is a skilfully designed high performance, smart fabric made with Bamboo Charcoal. Thermo5™ uses a knitted fabric which provides airflow and wicks moisture away, helping to keep your baby cool, dry and comfortable as well as feeling smooth on the skin and soft to touch.
