Multimac achieves high standards of safety because of its unique energy absorbing design which includes:
The multimac is crash tested at VTI in Sweden who back multimac as an innovative and safe solution to fit 3 or 4 children in the back of your car. VTI is often recognised as the ‘home of child safety’ having invented the rear facing seat, IsoFix and the Swedish Plus test, so we are proud that they recognised the safety and quality of multimac and have chosen to work with us since 2001.
The VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency), TRL (Transport Research Laboratory), The British Government and European Government have also all been involved in the development and approval of multimac for use both in the UK and across the world.
To cover all scenarios 11 different child age/load combinations are crash tested with the multimac and 28 dummies are used to ensure the seat achieves maximum safety no matter the age/weight configuration used with the multimac.
Yes, an extended rear facing seat is currently under development. We do not have a release date at the moment.
The Swedish Plus test is only for rear-facing seats that work independently of other car seats. As our rear facing minimac only works when attached to the multimac it cannot be Swedish plus tested.
The United Kingdom recognises the European standard that we are crash tested under and the multimac has been approved for use in the UK by the VCA, ABI, and British government.
The multimac is tested at the standard 50km/h. Despite popular belief it is not the speed at which the crash test rig moves but the force generated when it comes to a stop that is the most important measure of car seat safety
Multimac has been approved to the European Safety Standard for child seats, ECE 44-04 and greatly exceeds all crash test requirements. It is tested using 11 different age/load combinations to ensure it is extremely safe.
Absolutely, the multimac has been crash tested with dummies from 9kg and still passes with flying colours. We would highly recommend keeping your children rear facing in the minimac until they outgrow it at 82cm but it is perfectly safe for them to forward face with the Ylva headrest and 5 point harness once they do.
Contact us if you have any concerns.
Multimac is approved under ECE-44-04 and is therefore safe and legal for use in countries all over the world excluding the United States, Canada, and Australia. These countries have their own approval processes and do not recognise the European car seat safety standard.
No. Tests conducted to date have demonstrated that side airbags will not cause injury to children in child restraints provided they are fitted and used properly. Problems will only arise if the child is resting or sleeping against the door, so the MINIMAC and YLVA will give adequate protection for young children.
