Fulfilling Parents’ Expectations

It should not be difficult for a parent to find the right baby travel gear in Malaysia. Let’s make parenting easier and more stress-free for your family journeys with the right selection of kids’ products designed for your child. When it comes to doing that, Koopers is committed to exceeding expectations like no one else. Koopers offers everything you need for safety and convenient traveling needs with your baby, including baby car seats and baby strollers. Bringing your little one the happiness and protection they deserve begins with the best care possible. 

Introducing the all-new Koopers R129 SAFE Collection i-Size baby car seat, an all-in-one solution for all stages of babies in Malaysia. Koopers, as a brand striving to be the no. 1 baby car seat choice in Malaysia, has carefully considered and crafted this collection to provide exceptional value that endures from newborns to young teens.

In 2020, the government of Malaysia implemented and enforced the Child Restraint System (CRS) for child seats in private vehicles, making it mandatory. Governments often mandate the use of UNR standards (R44/04 or R129) for child car seats to protect the safety of young passengers. As per the regulations, parents must adhere once their children meet one of the following criteria: weigh less than 36 kg, have a height below 136 cm, or be below 12 years old.

In accordance with regulations, MIROS (Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research) issues QR code labels for child car seats available for sale within the country. These seats have undergone the component type approval (CTA) process with the road transport department (JPJ). The QR code label serves as a means of monitoring child safety seat distribution in the country by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs. It’s important to note that this label does not function as a certification, but rather aids in regulatory oversight.

To uphold child safety standards, Malaysia adheres to the regulations and certifications outlined in the United Nations Regulations (UNR), particularly the ECE R44/04 and ECE R129 rules. ECE R44/04 represents an established standard with a history of extensive usage, while ECE R129 (also known as i-Size) is a more recent standard designed to offer advanced safety features and compatibility. ECE R129 includes more rigorous testing protocols such as side-impact assessments and extended rear-facing capabilities for infants. Failure to adhere to these standards might lead to penalties. 

Koopers’ dedication to child safety resonates profoundly in their R129 SAFE Collection, meticulously adhering to UNR standards encompassing both ECE R44/04 and ECE R129 regulations. By aligning with these stringent safety criteria, Koopers guarantees a consistent standard of protection for young passengers, regardless of the vehicle type. This collection serves as a testament to Koopers’ unwavering commitment to elevating child safety standards on the road, instilling confidence in parents and caregivers alike.

What is R129 i-Size?

The i-Size baby car seat is a European safety regulation for child car seats (ECE R129). Introduced in July 2013, the scheme aimed to simplify the installation of baby car seats, improve side impact protection, and encourage extended rearward-facing travel for the little ones. The R129 i-Size car seats are designed to be determined by the height of children rather than their weight. It is mandatory to adhere to the rearward-facing position of seat restraints for babies up to 105 cm or at least 15 months old.   

The key feature requirements of the R129 i-Size car seats:

  1. Height-based classification.
  2. Rear-facing travel until at least 15 months old.
  3. Rear, forward, and side impact testing.
  4. Stricter safety criteria.

R129 SAFE Collection by Koopers Undergoes High-Standard Evaluations

Compatibility with Newborns

Koopers has thoughtfully curated the R129 SAFE Collection of i-Size car seats specifically tailored to suit Malaysian babies. Recognising the importance of reclining features, Koopers has gone above and beyond the standards of a typical children’s car seat. The R129 SAFE Collection is designed with a flexible recline angle, allowing the car seat to be adjusted to an optimal range of 150-160 degrees to maintain head support and ensure open airway. Each R129 SAFE Collection prioritises protection, incorporating side impact cushion technology to safeguard your child, regardless of the seating angle. From newborns to children up to 150 cm in height, the R129 SAFE Collection offers exceptional safety, comfort, and long-term usability.

Installation Compatibility for all Malaysia Vehicles

The compatibility between the newborn car seat and the vehicle is utmost important when it comes to ISOFIX installation. The snug and secure plug-in installation into an appropriate fitting point of ISOFIX enhances the safety of the child in the car seat during travel. The installation minimises any shaky movement, ensuring stability and enhancing impact absorption. Koopers places a high value on child safety during travel and has taken this into consideration. The R129 SAFE Collection products have undergone rigorous testing on various cars, ticking all the necessary checkboxes to ensure a firm and secure fit on Malaysian roads.

Ensuring the seamless integration of a i-Size baby car seat with a vehicle goes beyond the mere installation process; it involves meticulous attention to the compatibility of the seat’s fit within the unique interior design of each vehicle. It is essential that the installation is not only secure but also snug, minimizing any potential movement. Koopers has proactively undertaken comprehensive testing of the entire R129 SAFE Collection across various popular vehicle manufacturers to guarantee optimal compatibility and safety.

Furthermore, Koopers acknowledges the diversity in vehicle designs and has collaborated with industry experts to evaluate the compatibility of the R129 SAFE Collection with the existing car models in Malaysia. This testing process includes assessing the secure placement of the R129 car seat in different seating configurations and interior layouts, guaranteeing seamless integration with the specific nuances of each vehicle’s design.

In addition to meeting safety standards, Koopers places a high priority on user convenience. The R129 SAFE Collection baby car seats are engineered to offer ease of installation, providing a user-friendly experience for parents and caregivers alike. By addressing not only the technical aspects of compatibility but also user-friendliness, Koopers aims to deliver a comprehensive solution that prioritizes the safety and convenience of precious little passengers on every journey.

Koopers’ Choice for Malaysia’s Climate

Koopers firmly believes that nothing takes precedence over a child’s safety and comfort which includes choosing the right materials, particularly for car seats that come into direct contact with a baby’s skin. With Malaysia’s warm weather climate and the sensitivity of baby skin in mind, Koopers has made it a priority to carefully select soft, breathable, and cooling fabric materials. The fabric selection process involved comparing over 20 options and creating multiple samples for thorough touch and feel testing. The R129 SAFE Collection reflects their dedication to creating a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience for both parents and children. The cushions in the R129 SAFE Collection are equipped with DynaTech memory foam, providing enhanced comfort, support, and durability. 

The cushions in the R129 SAFE Collection are equipped with DynaTech memory foam, providing enhanced comfort, support, and durability. Specifically, the cushions in Spark and Ergo are crafted with LumiSoft Fabric, made from bamboo, a natural solution for those with sensitive skin to prevent irritation. Now, let’s delve into the exceptional qualities of LumiSoft Fabric and how it enhances the comfort and safety of Koopers’ baby car seats:

  • Comfortable: Renowned for its softness, it offers a gentle and comforting sensation, making it ideal for the delicate skin of newborns.
  • Breathability: Maintaining a balanced body temperature by promoting air circulation and preventing overheating. This aspect holds particular significance for newborns, as their sensitive skin is susceptible to heat rashes and irritation. 
  • Hypoallergenic Properties: Naturally hypoallergenic, devoid of harmful chemicals, and reduced likelihood of triggering allergic reactions.
