-Includes exclusive Safety You Can See features and increased side impact protection-
FORT MILL, S.C., July 29, 2013 /CNW/ - For parents with older children, BRITAX introduces easily portable PARKWAY SG and PARKWAY SGL belt-positioning booster seats. The seats offer premium safety and comfort for children weighing 18.1 to 54.4 kilograms and a standing height of at least 96.5 centimeters, up to 160 centimeters.
The lightweight PARKWAY booster seats feature exclusive Safety You Can See technologies. Featured in plain sight, these safety technologies allow parents to visibly see what keeps their children safe. Additionally, to protect a child's head, these seats include a Base with SafeCell Technology®. The SafeCells are designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and minimizing the forward movement of the child.
The PARKWAY SG and PARKWAY SGL also include improved side impact protection. New, deeper side walls lined with energy-absorbing foam and True Side Impact Protection® shield a child while keeping his head, neck and spine aligned. Additionally, SecureGuard prevents a child from sliding under the lap-belt portion of the safety belt during impact and minimizes the risk of abdominal injury.
BRITAX's proprietary ISOFLEXTM Flexible Lower LATCH Connection System is featured in the PARKWAY SGL seat. The ISOFLEX system secures the booster seat to the vehicle in seconds with only two clicks and a pull. This stabilizes the seat during a crash and prevents it from becoming a projectile when not in use.
"The refreshed PARKWAY SG and PARKWAY SGL booster seats offer deeper side walls and increased side impact and head protection for older children," said Claudia Prager, BRITAX Product Manager. "We want big kids to get big safety. These booster seats provide the highest level of safety and comfort BRITAX is known for, while providing convenience and easy portability for caregivers."
For families on the go, the PARKWAY SG and SGL are safe, portable and easy to use. The low weight of each seat makes them easy to transport and install into different vehicles, which is great for carpools and family travels. Additionally, the seats have plush covers that keep a child comfortable on long car rides and can be removed for easy cleaning. The PARKWAY seats also feature retractable cup holders for beverages and snacks.
The PARKWAY SG (MSRP: $149.99) and the PARKWAY SGL (MSRP: $179.99) are both available now at independent, mass and online retailers. Each seat is sold in three unique fashions. For more information about BRITAX, visit www.britax.ca, or find BRITAX on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
