This experimental structure in connection with the impact speed that is clearly above the requirements of the ECE 44/04 is a very extreme load on the seat. During this experiment, the seat shell has come from the back anchoring points of the base. However, the seat remained connected to the base at all times. In such loads, there is always a destruction of the seating structure and is also wanted in certain parameters for energy absorption", So the manufacturer. However, the Varioguard met all requirements of the ECE 44/04 security standard.
