What testing does Fllo undergo?
The Clek Fllo convertible child seat has undergone rigorous dynamic crash testing, including:
- Compliance testing which is federally required and represents 98% of all real-world crashes
- NCAP testing which simulates forces experienced in extreme crashes
- Side-impact and other extensive due-care testing which tests conditions outside of compliance testing, such as structural integrity for maximum occupant weight and various installation positions, the effect of extreme temperatures, misuse conditions, etc.
The Federal Government has established dynamic performance (crash testing) criteria that all Child Restraint Systems are required to meet. These criteria are used to assess the probability of injury.
Shown below are the independent results of the forces measured during FMVSS213 crash testing.
|Head Injury Criteria1 (must be below 1000)|
|Test Dummy Class||0||1000|
|Rear-Facing Installation||1 year old||414 59% below|
|3 year old||525 47% below|
|Forward-Facing Installation||3 year old||475 53% below|
|6 year old||534 47% below|
|Chest Acceleration2 (must be below 60 Gs)|
|Test Dummy Class||0||60|
|Rear-Facing Installation||1 year old||45 25% below|
|3 year old||42 30% below|
|Forward-Facing Installation||3 year old||53 12% below|
|6 year old||41 32% below|
- 1. Head Injury Criteria
- Head Injury Criteria (HIC) is used to assess the probability of a head injury. HIC is determined using the resultant acceleration at the center of gravity of the head. The threshold limit is 1000.
- 2. Chest Acceleration
- Chest acceleration is measured in Gs and is used to assess the probability of a chest injury. The threshold limit is 60 Gs.
