The Copenhagen Colors baby lift has been tested under the European safety standard EN 1466 by an impartial third-party testing lab, which makes sure that the product applies to all requirements and ensures that you, as a consumer, can trust that the standard is of highest safety possible.
The baby lift is designed with higher side panels, to prevent any accidents from happening and with a wooden board in the bottom, to stabilize the lift making it safe to carry around with the baby in the lift. This will also be better for the baby’s back, as a soft bottom would risk making the baby ’curl up’ in the lift. We have however added a very thick and spongy mattress on top of the board, so it will not feel hard for the baby.
The standard EN 1466 is a test for the safety aspects concerning the child’s sleeping habits and the risks related to carrying the child in the lift, the test includes:
1. Static test, where the baby lift is hung by the handles with a 38-kilo dummy for 30 minutes = ensures that the handles are strong enough.
2. Dynamic test, where the baby lift is hung by the handles with a 9-kilo dummy including 15.000 lifts and drops = ensures that the lift can be used over a longer period and is durable in use.
3. Fire test, to ensure that the surface will not overheat in case of fire = makes sure that the materials will not burn faster than ‘normal’.
4. Cylinder test, where they place the lift on an angled surface and roll a cylinder from one side to the other = ensures that the side panels will not yield over and that the baby lift will not tilt if the baby rolls over.
It is important to emphasize, that we always recommend checking your baby regularly, when they are in the baby lift – this is mentioned only as an extra safety measure, but would also be a natural step, when the baby wakes up or is hungry.
The standard, which the baby lift has been tested under, also makes sure there are no hazardous elements in the lift that could potentially be harmful for the baby and that it can endure everyday use, plus that all factors are complying to the standard in terms of sleeping safely in the baby lift.
We have included a pamphlet in the packing for the baby lift with information on the use of the baby lift, which we recommend keeping for later.
