While all other car seats are made of traditional plastic,
RENOLUX HAS DEVELOPED AN UNIQUE PATENT : SOFTNESS® TECHNOLOGY.
It consists of the combination of a high-strength steel frame with specially designed deformation characteristics, topped with high-density polyurethane foam to absorb energy and cushion violent impacts during a car accident.
SOFTNESS® it’s simply the softest, most comfortable and protective car seats for your children.
The SOFTNESS® technology is for the most part derived from spatial and aeronautical research. The severe factors that constrain pilots and astronauts are the basis of original state-of-the-art solutions to ensure their life on board and above all their safety. Our R&D engineers drew inspiration from these investigations, as well as from studies conducted by the automotive industry in terms of passive safety and in particular shocks absorption, to design and bring out the SOFTNESS® technology.
Made from a robust steel frame topped with an injection of polyurethane foam which makes it its signature, SOFTNESS® guarantees the highest level of safety while travelling by car.
The research for safety but also for comfort has always been one of the driving forces behind innovation at Renolux, which is highly concerned with children’s wellness. The SOFTNESS® technology, patented by Renolux, guarantees not only unique welcome and softness of the seat, but also ergonomics adapted to the morphology of the children, allowing them to always be well held. The high quality and careful finishing of the SOFTNESS® car seats are ensured by a made in France manufacture.
Sleep is an essential factor in the development and growth of children. Nothing must disrupt it, not even a car journey.
Thanks to SOFTNESS®, kid feels immediately like in a real cocoon, which fully respects his balance. The trip becomes more serene and the whole family benefits until arrival.
The steel frame has very high distortion characteristics, which are specifically designed to absorb energy and cushion violent impacts during a car crash.
We carried out crash tests in an independent laboratory to compare the movement of the dummy’s head in a conventional plastic seat, and in a Renolux Softness® seat. We can observe from the results below that the acceleration of the head is much less in the Renolux Softness® seat. The Softness® concept, which consists of a metal insert topped with foam, is therefore the best for optimising comfort and high impact resistance.

We carried out crash tests in an independent German testing laboratory to compare the acceleration sufferd by the dummy’s head in a conventional plastic car seat and in a Renolux Softness® car seat. We can see from the results below that the head acceleration is much lower in the Renolux Softness® car seat :
