FORT MILL, S.C., Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Britax Child Safety, Inc., the leader in child passenger safety technology and manufacturer of premium car seats, continues to set the standard for safety and innovation.
For the second year in a row, Britax ranked among the best in the latest Ecology Center's study of toxic chemicals and child car seats. Ecology Center, a non-profit organization behind the website Healthystuff.org, tested a range of seats for everything from hazardous flame retardants, chlorine, lead to heavy metals, many of which have been linked to serious health and developmental problems. This year, the Britax Marathon ClickTight car seat ranked at the top – consistent with results from 2015 that also included the Britax Frontier harness-2-booster and Parkway belt-positioning booster.
"At Britax, we are passionate about keeping children safe," said Maria Montaño, president of Britax Americas. "Over the last two years, Britax has doubled the number of chemicals it restricts in its products and continues to look for ways to do even more. We are particularly proud of this product because the Marathon contains our ClickTight technology. ClickTight was created to take the stress out of car seat installation."
Our patented Britax ClickTight Installation System is an industry game-changer. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that three out of four car seats are not properly secured to the vehicle. Britax is committed to change this statistic with installation technology that is fast, easy and secure. Britax is the only company that offers the ClickTight Installation System in car seats from birth-to-big kid that can be installed in three steps: simply open the front of the car seat, buckle the seat belt across and click the seat shut. The seat locks automatically without the extra effort and steps that other brands require.
Adds Montaño, "At Britax we invest substantial time and energy into creating industry leading innovations that protect our children. We are proud of the ground-breaking work that led to the creation of ClickTight and are equally proud and protective of the resulting patents. We know that taking the worry out of car seat installations can be the difference between life and death."
Britax remains committed to providing safe and innovative car seats that give parents and caregivers the peace of mind they deserve.
