Safety and Testing
The Breathe Easy Baby Sleep System complies with all federal regulations for crib mattresses, including mattress flammability (16 CFR part 1633) and labeling requirements (ASTM F2933-13).
It has also been certified by the world’s only mattress firmness standard, developed by the Australia/New Zealand Department of Health (AS/NZS 8811.1:2013).
We wanted to take safety a few steps further, so we had our product tested for carbon dioxide (Co2) dissipation and air permeability by a global leader in product testing.
The air permeability test (ASTM D737) showed that our sleep surfaces are 330 times more air permeable compared to a conventional mattress.
The Co2 dissipation test (see graph below) demonstrated that Co2 dissipated 10 times faster through our system than a conventional mattress.
The graph below shows the results of the carbon dioxide dissipation test. The blue line represents the mattress sample taken from the Breathe Easy Baby Sleep System.
The amount of carbon dioxide and its rate of dispersal over time were calculated by integrating the area under the plotted curve. The area under each of the curves is shown below.
Carbon Dioxide Rebreathing Results, Area Under Curve
Compared to the known low level hazard comparator of a firm mattress and a tight fitting sheet, the results from the assessment of the Crib Mattress from Breathe Easy Baby was very low. Measurements taken during this evaluation provide a value of 6.55 %CO2-seconds for the submitted sample which is significantly less than the values of the high hazard comparator items and even less than the value of
