Safety Standards

As parents of small children, we at TULIP Juvenile are exceedingly safety minded individuals. Our initial commitment to your child’s security begins in our design process. All of our designs are evaluated for safety issues before they are approved and moved into the production phase. In our production process we then use high-grade and high-quality components to produce our juvenile furniture. Finally, we ensure that our products are compliant to current safety standards.

 

We attest to you, the consumer and parent, that all of our cribs either meet or exceed voluntary and mandatory crib standards promulgated by the ASTM (American Society for Testing & Materials), the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission), the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), the United States JPMA Certification Program and Health Canada.

 

All of our cribs have been tested by an independent, third party testing facility in the United States.  We are also members of the JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association.)

 

We are also certified for air quality on all cribs under the GREENGUARD

General Safety Suggestions

  

  • Maintain a clear space around a crib, of at least 12”. This prevents a baby from grabbing items within reach when he/she is able to sit or stand up in the crib.

     

  • Tighten the bolts on cribs on a regular basis. This prevents any gaps for small fingers.

     

  • Tighten all the bolts on beds at least semi-annually, especially where the side rails attach. Many young children jump on their beds and this prevents the rails from giving way.

     

  • For dressers - do not open more than one drawer at a time and do not lean on drawers.

     

  • Be sure to have a smoke detector either in the room itself or on the same floor that the child’s room is located.

     

  • When moving furniture, try to lift the unit and avoid dragging it.

     

  • When storing a crib, place all instructions and hardware in a safe place away from your child.  Try to store it in a cool, dry place, preferably in the original carton. Exposure to extreme temperatures or excess humidity can compromise its construction for future use.
