Laboratory and safety

Quality and safety in all our products

We take care of your baby

A Safety & Quality laboratory has been created within our company where we carry out tests on our products by far exceeding what is imposed by the legislation, in order to guarantee a quality superior to that offered by the market.

For example, with regard to modular systems and strollers, the European legislation imposes 72,000 cycles on the carpet, we carry out about 500,000, even as regards the tests on the push handle the limits are 10,000 cycles, we do 30,000.

This attention and pursuit of perfection in terms of quality and safety does not only concern the products of the walking area, but our entire offer: in fact, as regards the boxes, the European legislation requires 5,000 cycles, which are carried out internally 10,000.

Offering safe and quality products is certainly one of our priorities.

We travel safely

We know how important it is to travel safely; for years, we have been committed to raising awareness on the issue of car safety. The use of suitable and compliant protection systems when transporting a child means taking care of them.

Unfortunately, the protective devices for transporting the child (seats, carrycots and adapters) are, in the event of an accident, the only possible prevention to avoid trauma and to reduce mortality.

Precisely for these reasons we constantly strive to produce safe and quality products.

Here are some simple tips for traveling in total safety and tranquility.

Guide for mums

  1. Always use a standard-approved car seat suitable for your child’s weight and shape.
  2. Fit the car seat following the indications given in the instruction book.
  3. Before fitting the car seat, check on which seat (front, rear side or rear centre) the car seat can be fitted. Never fit the car seat on the wrong seat in the car.
  4. Before placing your child in the car seat, always check that it has been fitted correctly.
  5. Always fasten the car seat safety harness, even for very short distances.
  6. Always set a good example by using the adult seat belts, even for very short distances.
  7. If possible, always fit the car seat on the rear seats of the car for your child’s greater safety in case of an accident
  8. Never fit the car seat on the front seat of a car equipped with an airbag unless it has been deactivated first.
  9. Remember that if you hold your child on your lap, especially if you are sitting in the front seat, you are exposing him or her to very serious risks.
  10. If your child gets fretful during a long trip, stop and let him or her relax in your arms or take a short walk.
  11. The car seat must be replaced after a car accident, even a very minor one, because the internal part of the car seat body could be damaged and may no longer be safe for your child.

Ask the expert

  1. What’s the safest position in which the car seat should be fitted?
    Bearing in mind that the car seat must be fitted correctly in the vehicle and the child must be fitted securely in the car seat, the safest position is the centre back seat as this is the most protected in the case of front or side impact.
  2. What risks can a child run in the car?
    It is important to remember that a child’s body structure is much more delicate than that of an adult and, therefore, more exposed to injury. A child travelling in a car without a car seat or in a car seat that is not standard-approved, or is unsuitable for baby’s weight or has been fitted incorrectly, risks serious injury (very hard impact against the dashboard, the windscreen or the front seats of the car), even in the case of a minor accident or sudden braking.
  3. Is it possible to calculate the risk involved in the case of an accident?
    When a car accident occurs, very strong forces come into play because the kinetic energy of the passengers depends on their body mass multiplied by the speed squared. Just think that in the case of an impact at 40 kph, a child’s body weight of 16 kg. becomes the equivalent of 1,000 kg. if the child is not suitably restrained. An impact at just 50 kph can be compared to falling from the third floor of a building.
  4. Is there a law regulating the way children should travel in the car?
    In Italy, the highway code (Art. 172) specifies how children aged under 12 and below 1.50 m. in height must travel in the car and it states that they must be fitted in a standard approved restraint system that complies with the child’s weight and height. European law (ECE R44/04) and R129 also regulate how children travel in the car.
  5. What fines could I be given if I break the law?
    If a driver fails to use a compulsory child restraint system, the fine ranges from €80 to €323 and the loss of 5 points from the driving licence. If one of the child’s parents is also a passenger in the car, but not the driver, the fine will be given to the parent instead of the driver. Remember, though, that in the event of an accident, the worst fine is the sense of guilt you will feel about your child.

Advice about car seats

What Isofix is suitable for my car?

When you are buying a car seat, it’s important to check whether it’s suitable for your car. In fact, there are different types of Isofix:

  • Specific: an Isofix system developed especially for a particular car manufacturer and suitable only for the specific model of car for which it has been made (or on similar models of the same car manufacturer).
  • Semi-universal: a system provided with two standard attachments located on the base of the car seat and a front support. It’s only compatible with some car models.
  • Universal: a system provided with two standard attachments located on the base of the car seat and a third anchorage point (Top Tether) located behind the car seat backrest. It can be used on most cars in circulation provided with a Universal Isofix System.

Where do I have to secure the Top Tether?

The Top Tether anchorage point varies according to the type of car: consult your instruction manual to check whether the anchorage point is on the rear shelf, in the car boot or behind the seat.

Advice before you buy

Before buying any car seat, make sure that:

  • the car seat is suitable for your baby
  • baby’s size has been taken into consideration, by testing the car seat with the child in it, if necessary
  • the car seat complies with the European regulation in force
  • the car seat is suitable for your car
  • your child can be secured in the car seat easily and quickly

For proper maintenance

  • Clean the plastic parts regularly with a damp cloth. Do not use solvents or solvent-based products.
  • From time to time clean the sliding and moving parts with a damp cloth and lubricate with a silicone spray.
  • Keep the product in a dry place. Do not expose the product to atmospheric agents such as water, rain, snow, humidity or strong sunlight.
  • Do not place the product close to a fire or other sources of intense heat (fireplaces, electric or gas heaters) to avoid a fire hazard.
  • If the metal parts should get wet, dry them with a soft cloth to prevent rust.
  • Check periodically that the folding and height regulation mechanisms are working properly and that there are no damaged or worn parts (e.g. loose screws).
  • Replace any damaged parts immediately.
  • Never use any spare parts other than those approved by the manufacturer or distributor.
