Probably The Safest Car Seat In Singapore And The World
If you are looking to buy a baby car seat or child booster seat in Singapore look no further. Our Maxi Cosi car seats have carried more than 60 million babies home from hospital. We’ll be there for you too. We engineer our portable baby car seats with ISOFIX base, iSize compliant features, and belted options for maximum safety. So you will always make the right choice for your baby if you choose Maxi Cosi. Our safety features include
Side Impact Protection:
G-Cell to protect your child during a side-impact collision. The side panels of the car seat incorporate unique hexagonal cells that function similarly to the crumple zone in your car's bumper. These cells divert impact forces away from your child's body, offering superior protection. This technology is iSize standard compliant.
Head And Neck Protection
Our award-winning Maxi-Cosi Air Safety Technology® is a built-in airbag system that cushions the head and neck. Automatically inflating in a collision, it significantly reduces the forces on your child, reducing the risk of a serious injury.
Tested Up To 70Km/h
Our crash tests are so advanced that they’re often also used by EU regulators. Experts carry out more than 2,000 crash tests on our baby car seats every year to check existing products and develop new technology. That’s why Maxi-Cosi is renowned for using cutting-edge innovation for safe, reliable car seats. Our iSize and ISOFIX products exceed these standards many times over.
5 point harness vs 3-point harness
We use a 5 point harness system for our baby car seats and strollers. A 5-point harness has five attachment points designed to restrain your child at the shoulders and hips, which are the most rigid parts of their body. If there is a crash, the car seat harness transfers the forces of the crash to these rigid points of the body and into the seat. As a result, tests show that the soft parts of the body, such as the abdomen, are protected from the impact. A 5 point harness is especially important in a roll over scenario.
The soft parts of your child's body may not withstand the forces of a crash in the same way as rigid parts do. When your child is restrained at the lower abdomen, for example by a 3-point harness or shield, he or she can fold over the belt or restraint. This means that the belt or restraint can intrude into the abdomen area resulting in significant injury.
ClimaFlow comfort temperature regulation
Special ClimaFlow panels, breathable foam and fabrics encourage comfortable air circulation to ensure your child is always at the right temperature. This is extremely important in Singapore where cars parked in the sun can reach high temperatures.
We exceed minimum safety standards so you can be confident that your little one is as safe as possible.
Laws Regarding Baby Car Seats
In Singapore, the law requires that all children below the height of 1.35m must be secured in an appropriate child restraint or booster seat while travelling in a car. Under LTA rules and regulations the child restraint system used must comply with the United Nations standard ECE R44/04 or the newer i-Size standard, and must be appropriate for the child's height and weight.
Children who are taller than 1.35m but below 1.50m must use a booster seat and wear a seat belt. It is the driver's responsibility to ensure that all passengers, especially children, are properly secured in the vehicle.
Failing to comply with the car seat law in Singapore can result in a fine and demerit points on the driver's license. It is important to prioritize the safety of children while travelling in a car.
