PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

ADVANCED SAFETY PERFORMANCE FOR ALL AGES

Designed to keep your child safe from 9 months all the way up to 12 years of age, ADVANSAFIX III SICT combines a range of advanced safety technologies that exceed the legal requirements to give you even greater peace of mind. ISOFIX with Pivot Link minimises forward movement in the event of a collision, reducing the risk of head and neck injury for children of all ages, while our side impact protection (SICT) provides additional protection in the event of a side collision. And as your child grows and transitions from being secured with the integrated 5-point harness to being secured with the car’s 3-point seat belt, the SecureGuard helps to keep the adult lap belt in the optimal position.

SUITABLE FROM 9 TO 36 KG

The ADVANSAFIX III SICT grows with your child as it can be used for children from 9 kg to 36 kg. This makes it the only car seat you’ll need after an infant carrier. As your little one grows, you can easily switch from the integral harness (up to 18 kg) to using the car’s 3-point seat belt (up to 36 kg) with the additional protection from our SecureGuard to secure the child in the seat.

ISOFIX and Top Tether (Group 1)

Fitting a car seat 100% safely can be tricky because every car is different. That’s why Britax co-developed ISOFIX, a standard system of connection points featured in almost all cars. The ISOFIX system establishes a secure and firm connection between the child’s car seat and the car. So every time you, or a grandparent or friend, have to fit the car seat into your car, or into another car, fewer mistakes can be made.

ADVANSAFIX III SICT specific requirements - a safe installation is completed with the use of Top Tether to allow optimum stability.

Check the vehicle owner's manual to locate ISOFIX and Top Tether anchorage points in your car and ask your local retailer for a test installation in your car (please ask for a member of staff trained by Britax) before you buy the car seat.

FEATURES

Highback booster protection
Feature01 Highback Booster Protection ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

Our highback boosters protect your child in 3 ways: the seat shell provides head to hip protection for your child, especially in case of a side impact, the upper and lower belt guides provide correct positioning of the seat belt, and the padded headrest provides safety and comfort for your child’s head and neck.

5-point harness
Feature02 5 Point Harness ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

We believe a 5-point harness is the safest way to secure your child in a car seat because it keeps your child safe and tight in the seat’s protective shell. In case of a collision, the harness distributes the forces of the impact across 5 points, two at the shoulders, two at the hips and one where the harness buckles between the legs. This helps to protect your child from all directions of impact.

SecureGuard
Feature03 SecureGuard ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

SecureGuard helps to protect an older child’s delicate abdominal area and adds an extra - a 4th - contact point to the standard 3-point adult seat belt. By keeping the lap belt in an optimal position over your child’s pelvic bones, SecureGuard helps reduce abdominal forces in the event of a frontal collision by up to 35 %* and at the same time allows your child freedom of movement during any journey.

Advanced Side Impact Protection (SICT)
Feature04 SICT ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

Our SICT offers superior protection to your child in the event of a side collision. It reduces impact forces by minimising the distance between the car and the car seat and deforms to absorb the energy before it reaches your little one. To benefit from the protection, simply adapt the SICT on the side of the car seat closest to the door.

3 easy-to-adjust recline positions
Feature05 Multi recline positions ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

Keeping your little ones comfortable while traveling is a must. That’s why ADVANSAFIX III SICT was designed with 3 positions that you can recline with ease.

V-Tether – double anchorage for even greater stability
Feature06 Top Tether ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

Due to its twin anchorage points, V-Tether offers even greater stability and security for your child than a seat with conventional top tethers. Our V-Tether prevents the seat from rotating and reduces the forward movement of the child in the event of a collision. Plus, its unique pattern of stitches is designed to progressively rip in a controlled fashion, absorbing the force of the frontal impact.

The Britax Römer Pivot Link System
Feature07 Pivot Link ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

In case of an impact, our patented Pivot Link System directs the force first downward, into the vehicle seat, and then forward, more gently - greatly reducing the risk of head and neck injury.

Performance Chest Pads
Feature08 Performance Chest Pads ADVANSAFIX III SICT 1180x830px 72dpi

Our performance chest pads provide comfort and reduce your child’s forward movement in a frontal collision with extra care and attention to a child’s delicate neck. They also help spread the forces from a frontal impact more evenly across your child’s shoulders and chest.

FAQ'S

Nearly 50 years of experience and constant technical innovation have enabled us to understand in minute detail what happens in different types of collisions. Based on our continually developing knowledge, a 5-point harness system is the only form of restraint we use on all of our Group 0+/1, 1 and Group 1/2 car seats – and we are increasingly finding ways to build extended 5-point harnessing into our Group 2 seats.

WHAT TYPES OF RESTRAINT SYSTEMS ARE AVAILABLE?

In Group 0 and 0+ children are generally restrained with a 3- or 5-point harness.

In Group 1 children are restrained either with the 5-point harness or the shield system (also referred to as safety cushion, impact shield, tray shield).

In Group 2 and 3 children are commonly restrained with an adult seat belt. However we are also working to champion extended 5-point harnessing for Group 2 so that children can benefit from the safety of 5-point harnesses for longer.

HOW DOES A 5-POINT HARNESS WORK IN A COLLISION?

A 5-point harness significantly decreases the forces a child experiences during a crash since the forces are diverted from the child along the harnessing to the five points of contact with the seat. When the child is decelerated by the harness, the cushioning occurs across a wide area and limits shoulder and hip movements, resulting in low stress to the spine and the forces being directed away from the parts of the body containing vital organs.

In case of a roll-over, side impact or an offset impact (where combined vertical, lateral and or oblique loading lateral forces can lead to ejection or submarining), the shoulder contact points and the crotch strap stop those risks and keep the child safely in the protecting seat shell.

In addition, the harness allows for adjustment to the child’s body and therefore offers a good and customised fit.

WHY DO WE USE A 5-POINT HARNESS?

In all 5-point harness seats, the straps come down over the shoulders and across the hips to fasten to the buckle that comes up between the legs. The harness sits closely against the bony parts of the pelvis (the crotch and hip straps) and across the shoulders and rib cage (the shoulder straps). When a child moves forward in the seat, as they would in a crash, the properly tightened harness is already "holding" the child and it effectively restrains them, spreading the crash forces out through the seat and the remaining forces across the strong bones of the body.

WHY ARE CHILD CAR SEATS WITH INTEGRATED HARNESS OFTEN MORE EXPENSIVE THAN CAR SEATS WITH SHIELD SYSTEMS?

Harnesses are complex to design. The visible part is only a small fraction of the total harnessing system, which comprises straps, tongues, crotch strap, attachment means to the shell and a key element: the buckle. Technology is needed to allow easy tightening and release of the harness, and the harness needs to be routed around the shell to allow connection at the right points for the load to be distributed whilst providing easy access to the parents securing their child in the seat. In addition, designing a shell which can properly withstand the forces the harness places on the upper shell, to effectively restrain the upper body, is technically advanced and costly.

The design of car interiors can effect the angle at which a car seat fits – and therefore the angle at which the child rests within the seat. In designing every seat our goal is the optimal balance between safety and comfort. The steeper the angle of the back of the infant carrier, the greater the protection in the event of an accident. The flatter the baby is in the shell, the easier it is for a young child with developing neck muscles, but the safety systems of the seat may no longer be working at optimum capacity. We generally advise that consumers seek advice from qualified personnel when buying and fitting a child seat. If a qualified car seat fitter judges that the angle of the shell is too steep in conjunction with the vehicle seat, then for Britax seats you can request a free inclination adapter – either through your retailer or by contacting our Customer Service Department. This adapter is very easy to install using the supplied manual.

Booster cushions and highback booster seats are not the same. It is our belief, based on our decades of experience and our continuing research that normal booster cushions simply don’t offer adequate side impact or head protection. That’s why we only sell highback booster seats. That’s why we have worked to create Europe’s first Group 2/3 seat with a ‘Very Good’ safety rating.*

*Stiftung Warentest and ADAC Motorwelt, 11/2013, for the KIDFIX XP SICT when used with ISOFIX

Booster cushions offer:

no side or head protection no guidance to ensure that seat belts are correctly positioned and fitted.

Our KID range of highback booster seats offers:

  • deep, softly padded full side wings
  • height adjustable headrest and belt guide
  • V-shaped backrest to ensure a perfect fit throughout your child’s development
  • Intuitively positioned seat belt guides enter

We are not alone in our belief that booster cushions are not the safest option for your child

WHY ARE BOOSTER CUSHIONS STILL SOLD?

Booster cushions are still sold because it is not required by current EU safety standards to conduct tests for side collisions, however if the regulations change, we do not believe that any new booster cushions would pass. Parents are also sometimes unaware that Booster cushions offer no head support in the event of a side impact crash. But here at BRITAX we design our products to provide protection during traffic collisions from every angle of impact.
