What size is the UrZone?
We have a UK single model (to fit a standard UK mattress of 190 x 90 x 20cm, min. 17cm high - a standard profiling mattress of 200 x 86/88 x 15/17cm, min. 15cm high, will also fit) and a UK double model (to fit a standard UK double mattress of 190 x 135 x 20cm, min. 17cm high). Extended access versions are available for both
the single and double models. We also have a school model which has a base of 190 x 90cm. Hospitals purchase the extended access model due to its versatility. We are also able to create a UrZone for longer mattresses for tall individuals or for international mattress
sizes. Please contact us for further details.
How strong is the UrZone?
We have tested the material for strength and the mesh result was approx. 495 pounds of pressure (PSI) and the opaque material was approx. 562 pounds of pressure (PSI).
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 - CRIB 7 (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. We 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 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!
