Evenflo is commited to providing child safety through research, testing, design, and community.
At Evenflo, we continue to go above and beyond government standards to provide car seats that are tested at 2X the Federal Crash Test Standard. We also continually enhance our products with new technologies that distribute crash forces away from your child during a crash.
Some of those technologies include:
We also work to make safety easier by providing best-in-class ease of Installation.
Our hope is that no one will ever need SensorSafe™ Technology, but the reality is that 1 child dies every 9 days from being left in a motor vehicle. We feel a social responsibility to offer caregivers and parents the opportunity to help prevent these tragedies from happening.
SensorSafe Technology works by alerting a caregiver that a child is present in the vehicle upon reaching their destination. Additionally the technology will also alert the caregiver if the chest clip becomes unbuckled during the trip.
This works through two components: a wireless receiver and a smart chest clip. The wireless receiver plug inserts into the vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Port and communicates to the car seat’s smart chest clip via standard radio frequency. The system works together to make beeping sounds to alert the caregiver of a problem.
Evenflo is leading the industry by incorporating a dynamic rollover test.
In January 2016 Babies"R"Us® and Evenflo®, both advocates in child product safety, came together to launch the FIRST rollover tested car seat in the U.S, the Safemax all-in-one car seat. The Evenflo Rollover Test simulates ROOF-TO-GROUND contact, an impact responsible for the majority of injuries in a rollover event.
Evenflo’s partnership with Babies"R"Us® continues as the lineup of Rollover Tested seats expands into infant and convertible car seats throughout 2016.
Evenflo Side impact testing simulates a crash in which the vehicle carrying the car seat is struck on the side by another vehicle. An example of a real life side impact collision is when a car crossing an intersection is struck on the side by another car that ran a stop sign.
Approximately one out of four vehicle crashes have a side impact component. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), impacts to the side of the vehicle rank almost equal to frontal crashes as a source of fatalities and serious injuries to children ages 0 to 12.
Federal car seat safety standards require a frontal impact test with a 30 mph velocity change. This approximates the crash forces generated in a collision between a vehicle traveling 60 mph and a parked car of similar mass, or the energy produced in a fall from a three story building. There are currently no provisions in the U.S. and Canadian standards for side impact testing. NHTSA is in the process of developing a child side impact test standard.
At Evenflo, car seat safety is a top priority. That's why we have created the Evenflo Side Impact test protocol. The Evenflo Side Impact test protocol was developed by Evenflo engineers using state-of-the-art facilities. The rigorous test simulates the energy in the severe 5-star government side impact tests conducted for automobiles.
All Evenflo car seats meet or exceed all applicable federal safety standards and Evenflo’s side impact standards.
