What size is the UrZone?
We have a UK single model (to fit a standard UK mattress of 190 x 90 x 20cm) and a UK double model (to fit a standard UK double mattress of 190 x 135 x 20cm). Extended access versions are available for both
the single and double models. The school and hospital models are 190 x 90cm but the hospital model will fit a standard profiling mattress. We are also able to create a UrZone for international mattress
sizes. Please contact us for further details.
How strong is the UrZone?
We have tested the material for strength using the ASTM D3787:2007 Ball Burst Test and the mesh achieved 2200N (approx. 495 pounds of pressure) and the opaque material achieved 2500N (approx. 560 pounds of pressure).
The weave of the mesh means that it is very difficult to rip / tear, even if bitten or chewed.
The strength testing we have carried out on the frame has proven to us that it is incredibly strong and durable - more than any comparable product on the market. The gas struts and flexibility of the
joints means that it can take more strain without breaking. If you have any concerns regarding whether it will be strong enough for your needs, please contact us to discuss further.
What happens in a fire?
The UrZone is flame-retardant to a very high standard (maximum risk, e.g. use in prisons). In a fire, if you had a baby in a cot, you would be responsible for helping them out the building. This is the same with the UrZone with
the added bonus that at least you will know where they are - they won't be hiding in a small space somewhere, potentially not answering to their name. HKD Solutions Ltd. will be liaising with the Fire
Service to ensure they have the correct information about the UrZone. We would also recommend families contact their local Fire Station and alert them to the fact that they have a safe enclosed bed in
their property and its location to aid in an emergency situation.
Have you tested the material for toxicity and skin allergenicity?
Absolutely! There's a 'Sunday best' standard called Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class 1 (highest safety level - for textile items for babies and toddlers up to 3 years, i.e. items that they will
be in close skin contact with) and the test components of which the UrZone material passed with flying colours but we weren't happy with just this. This only tests with alkaline testing and we wanted to test
with acid testing (if someone managed to get a piece of material and swallowed it) so we added in the standard for EN71 part 3 (nursery toy testing in case a toy is chewed and swallowed) and again the
UrZone passed with flying colours. The Managing Director's own son is sleeping in a UrZone - testing had to be carried out to an incredibly high standard!
