Standardized and secure swimwear and floatation devices
Standards to ensure your safety
The first tests, both technical and towards potential customers, were conclusive, so Alain Belkadi wanted to submit his development to the forks of standardization. This was a prerequisite for any large-scale commercial deployment on European markets, and more generally an ethical necessity. But when the company turned to the certifying bodies, it was only to discover that there was no standard of buoyancy for children!
There were dozens of nomenclatures for swimming pools, supervised swimming, balls, inflatable boats, but nothing for the floatation suits we put on our children.
The CRITT Sports and Leisure therefore undertook to develop this standard with the active support and expertise of Greystone, and therefore of Plouf!
Logically, the brand was the first to benefit from the NF EN 13138-1 standard in 2001, and has not ceased to meet the strictest criteria of European standardization since then, thus guaranteeing access to the market, and nurturing the Plouf brand!
