Crash Test

A unique laboratory

All the Jané seats are created in the JANÉ CRASH TEST RESEARCH CENTER, the only private crash tunnel in Spain for researching child safety.

As it is at our factory in Palau-Solità i Plegamans (Barcelona), we can use the Crash Test as much as is necessary. And that’s how we can offer you the most tested seats on the market with the strictest certification of Europe.


Our Dummy Family


What is a dummy?

In the crash tests carried out by the engineers at the JANE CRASH TEST RESEARCH CENTER we use dolls to simulate vehicle drivers and passengers.

These dolls, called Dummies, are the size and weight of ‘real’ babies and children, and they are tested using the same forces that a car would receive in a crash situation.

To test the Jané seats and guarantee the maximum safety for your children, we use dummies of all ages. We like to call them ‘our dummy family’. We have a newborn, a 9-month-old baby, an 18-month-old, a 3-year old, a 6-year-old and 12-year-old.

Given human characteristics
For the crash test to be as similar as possible to a real crash, the dummies have to follow two basics criteria:

  1. Biofidelity (for it to have the same size and weight as the children of the age group it represents).
  2. Anthropomorphism (meaning that the movements and reactions of the dummy are as similar as possible to those of real child).

32 sensors mean we can measure the damage caused by each impact
Dummies were created fitted with 32 sensors. These sensors are spread out almost all over the body (head, cervical, chest and pelvis), and they allow us to measure the damage in the event of whiplash, seat belt tension, side impacts and vertical displacement.
