What is the UN ECE R44/04? It’s the certificate for a kids car seat that is approved all around the world. The HY5 has one.
Safety is the most important aspect of a kids car seat. We are passionate at working to fine-tune that aspect, always with the aim of improvement. Competent experts in leading laboratories all around the world test the results. They are strict and uncompromising.
The result: A safty rating of 1.9 in ADAC test (May 2019), a certification in accordance with the UN ECE R44/04 standard as well as TÜV approval for use in aircraft (with nachfolger travel kit) – and above all, one of the safest kids car seats in the world.
It’s always been our philosophy to keep upgrading what has already been established by incorporating new ideas and technologies and developing innovative safety concepts. For example with the HY5, we picked up on the trend of combining several types of kids car seats into a single product.
It also uses our very own SAS technology, which combines with its exceptional design to create an unmistakable game-changer. In other words, we’re very proud of the fact that we’ve created something that questions all previous products or even surpasses them.
The HY5 has an Air Control System and a Side-Air-Suspension System, which join forces to form the intelligent part of the seat.
This is the guarantee that the kids car seat conforms to legal requirements. The approval of our kids car seat includes front, rear impact and rollover tests. The HY5 has also been tested for the use with only the lap belt.
The HY5 is UNIVERSAL certified in accordance with UN-ECE R44/04 and marked with an orange seal of approval. The kids car seat can thus be used in all vehicles with a three-point belt. The installation with the lap belt is primarily for use in aircrafts, but is also intended for vehicles that are old or have been converted for travel purposes.
The SAS System provides excellent protection in the case of a side collision. Additional safety elements are therefore unnecessary, thus 3 seats fit side by side even in the compact class.
The three-point harness provides maximum safety for your child and also makes it faster to attach and release.
The HY5 can be simply installed using the vehicle’s seatbelt.
The additional belt at the top of the kids car seat reduces forward displacement of the head in the case of a head-on collision.
The safest place for children is behind the front seats. The seatbelts must be strapped in a way that is right for the kids car seat. A proper vehicle seat with a three-point harness is necessary. Systems with only lap belts are not suitable. The seat can be mounted at the front, but the passenger seat airbag must be deactivated.
Note: Please consult the vehicle manual before buying a kids car seat.
