Extended Rear-Facing Installation
Foonf was designed to international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in a rear-facing installation until their 4th birthday.
Foonf is reinforced by a steel and magnesium sub-structure.
Advanced Side Impact Protection
Energy-absorbing foam-lined Headrest connected to frame using steel rods provides maximum head protection in a side-impact collision. Foam layers on both the inside and outside of the frame protect your child by absorbing energy in a side-impact collision, resulting in less force directly upon your child.
Foonf is crash tested to NCAP, which simulates forces experienced in extreme collisions.
In Rear-Facing mode, Foonf’s Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the child seat, helping protect your child’s head from impact in the case of a collision.
The Revolutionary REACT™ Safety System
Reducing the forces transmitted to your forward-facing child in a frontal collision.
- Rigid-LATCH Energy Absorbing Crumple Technology
The REACT™ Safety System integrated into every Foonf child seat protects your child much like the crumple zones in the cars we drive — one of the most effective innovations in automotive safety.
In a collision, the vehicle comes to an abrupt stop, but the child continues to move at the same speed. The less time that it takes for the child to come to a complete stop, the higher the forces exerted on the child. The REACT Safety System allows that sudden change in momentum to happen over a longer period of time through a series of controlled events. Foonf is designed to ride down the collision crumpling the aluminum honeycomb and absorbing energy from the collision resulting in less force transferred to the child. See how Foonf performs below.
What testing does Foonf undergo?
The Clek Foonf 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.
- 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.
