Koala Kare Restaurant Booster Seat KB854 meets the new ASTM F2640-18 standards
Mandatory Booster Seat Standard has taken effect on January 2, 2020. This is important news if you are a commercial foodservice establishment. The ASTM F2640-18 is important for fast-food and full-service restaurants, eateries in commercial environments and public places like cafeterias in hospitals, malls and airports.
The new standard specifically addresses how boosters attach to adult chairs and the size of booster seats in relation to adult chairs. The new measure outlines safety requirements for all booster seats.
Koala's booster seats are age graded for children from 36 months to 5 years of age and meet the new federal standard ASTM F2640-18.
