Britax Car Seats
When it comes to safety and innovative engineering, Britax is recognized as a global leader in car seat manufacturing. With over 30 years of experience, Britax is the best selling child seat in England, Europe, and Australia. Introduced in America only ten years ago, Britax has quickly developed a strong following among U.S. moms and dads, who appreciate the company's dedication to safety and quality.
Headquartered in the United Kingdom, Britax maintains research and manufacturing facilities in the U.K., Germany, Australia, and the U.S., as well as subsidiaries and sales offices around the world. Britax is the only child restraint manufacturer with its own five crash test sleds equipped with state-of-the-art technology, allowing the company to certify to global government requirements and perform continuous testing of its seats. This world-class engineering has enabled Britax to develop some of the industry's most highly praised safety innovations, such as the patented Versa-Tether seat anchoring system. While most car seats only provide tethering in the forward-facing position, Britax's Versa-Tether allows rear-facing as well as forward-facing tethering for maximum seat stabilization. To help ensure that parents use Versa-Tether properly, Britax goes one step further by including a rear-facing tether connector strap to help create a suitable anchor point for all of their Versa-Tether enabled seats. Plus, for owners of vehicles manufactured prior to 2001, tether anchorage hardware is available upon request - at no cost - by contacting Britax consumer services. Another example of Britax's dedication to excellent customer service is their Crashed Restraint Exchange program, which allows parents to exchange their child restraints that have been involved in a severe crash and receive a new seat free of charge.
From rear-facing infant seats to belt-positioning boosters, Britax offers an entire line of child safety seats to meet the needs of your growing child. Recently, Britax edited its product offerings to make it easier for customers to find the perfect seat. The Companion is Britax's rear-facing only seat, designed to double as an infant car seat and baby carrier. The Companion supports babies from 4 to 22 pounds and is compatible with Britax strollers to create a travel system. Britax offers several convertible car seats, including the Roundabout, which has been a best seller since it came on the U.S. market. The Roundabout seats children from 5 to 33 pounds in the rear-facing position and then converts to a forward-facing seat for children one year old and 20 pounds up to 40 pounds. Britax's other convertible seats, the Marathon, Decathlon, and Boulevard, all have an increased weight limit - up to 65 pounds - and offer additional options and comfort features. With the Regent, Britax provides a youth car seat to keep toddlers secured in a five-point harness restraint up to 80 pounds.
Like a luxury automobile, Britax marries service, safety, and style. In fact, high-end automakers Porsche and Mercedes Benz recognize the quality, comfort, and elegance built into every Britax seat and exclusively sell Britax Car Seats to their customers. Plain and simple, car seats save lives - and Britax's continued innovation and technical excellence ensure that their products are produced to the highest quality. It's no wonder Britax seats are consistently rated highly by consumer advocates and parents alike.
