These BRITAX technologies have been engineered to protect your child from every type of impact, including both frontal and side impacts:
Base with SafeCell Technology
Bases with SafeCell Technology feature SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat. Learn more
Integrated Steel Bars
Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash. Learn more
True Side Impact Protection
BRITAX seats featuring True Side Impact Protection include deep side walls and an adjustable head restraint keeping the head, neck and spine “in true” or aligned, to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, and contain the head, neck, and body. Learn more
Side Impact Protection
BRITAX seats featuring Side Impact Protection are comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing foam that distributes crash forces, shields your child from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body. Learn more
SecureGuard is an easy-to-use BRITAX exclusive feature that works with the vehicle safety belt to prevent the child from sliding under the lap-belt portion of the safety belt (submarining) during impact, thus minimizing the risk of abdominal injury. Learn more
All BRITAX seats incorporate either EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) or EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) Foam padding used to absorb crash forces.
All BRITAX seats include high-density comfort foam, which helps to absorb crash forces while providing an extra layer of padding for your child.
The BRITAX energy-absorbing Versa-Tether features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat. Learn more
HUGS Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology
HUGS Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology are affixed to the seat shell to ensure proper positioning while SafeCells compress to manage energy and provide resistance to the forward movement of your child in a crash, reducing the risk of head injury. Learn more
The BRITAX Harness Ultra-Guard System, HUGS, provides resistance to forward movement during a crash. Learn more
