As car seat safety is so important, we spent a long time researching and designing our Sande Kids™ Waterproof Car Seat and Pram Liner to ensure we were putting a safe product out into the market place.
The Sande Kids™ Waterproof Car Seat and Pram Liner has been designed to meet voluntary Australian Standard; AS 8005:2020 Accessories for child restraints for use in motor vehicles.
AS/NZS 1754:2013 Child restraint systems for use in motor vehicles was also consulted during the design and development process.
Our Liner has been voluntarily crash tested in accordance with AS 8005:2020, AS/NZS 1754:2013 and AS/NZS 3629.1:2013 (Methods of testing child restraints - Dynamic testing). Test results below.
As required by AS 8005:2020 in regards to materials and performance, the following was considered;
- Flammability of materials
- Bite resistance
Our Liner is made from high quality Food Grade Silicone which is naturally non-toxic, non-flammable and bite resistant.
Our Liner is soft and comfortable for little people. As it's non-toxic, it is gentle against young skin. It is non-flammable so no toxic flame retardants which are often applied to car seat fabrics were used.
Crash Testing (or Dynamic Testing) was carried out by a world recognised NATA accredited testing facility in Melbourne on 4 August 2021.
The Crash Testing demonstrates that our Liner does not lessen the protection and performance offered by a child’s car seat. As our liner is a universal fit for most forward-facing harnessed car seats (6 months – 4 years), we weren’t able to test our liner in all car seats on the market. Instead, we tested our Liner in one popular make and model of car seat.
We chose the Britax Graphene Convertible Car Seat as it’s sold widely in Australia and also has a good CREP rating for safety. The CREP (Child Restraint Evaluation Program) independently tests car seats above and beyond minimum standards. The dummy known as TNO P3 used in the seat was the equivalent of a 3-year-old child.
Two identical car seats were used. For a baseline test, the car seat was attached via iso-fix in forward-facing mode to a dynamic sled. The P3 dummy was secured and frontal-impact was tested. The second seat was then attached to the sled in the same way, our liner fitted and the P3 dummy secured in and again frontal-impact was tested. The test showed there was no significant difference between the two tests.
