The new baby changing table has met all of the technical & market expectations thanks to very strong support from the Tecni-Form team – Mr Hesnard, Director of Baby Point Ltd
Baby Point Ltd is the main provider of baby changing facilities for mainstream retailers, shopping centres, airports and leading attractions in the UK. Over the last 15 years, the company has developed its range of baby changing products with Tecni-Form as its manufacturing partner. When Baby Point decided to launch a brand new mobile all-in-one commercial baby changing table to meet new market trends, it was no surprise that they reached out to the Tecni-Form team as their products required technical expertise from design stage to manufacturing.

Health & Safety Standards
Easily Assembled Parts
Rigid & Durable
Aesthetically Pleasing Design
Tecni-Form Delivering Engineering Excellence – The Solution
The new portable baby changing table is assembled from six polyethylene and one polypropylene rotomoulded parts with high dimensional accuracy. The design incorporates optional components, such as bins and lockable castors, with all assembly carried out by Baby Point to customers’ individual specifications.
The stylishly formed baby changing cradle is manufactured from a new grade of high impact polypropylene, the weight being supported by the base structure. To achieve the necessary rigidity without metal reinforcement, the new CAD design was modelled using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and incorporates a number of invisible moulded features to enhance the necessary support to the structure.
The design with its polished surfaces and rounded edges, ensures a safe and comfortable environment for babies, and this is enhanced by the cradle incorporating an anti-microbial additive to increase hygiene standards further.
The flexibility of Tecni-Form’s rotomoulding process enables rapid colour changes giving the option to supply even single batches in any colour, say to match corporate or authority identity.
