Why isn’t the pod roof completely closed?

Most Mamava pods have open-grid roofs to circulate air and to help occupants hear safety messages in public places. (The Solo V2.0 comes standard with a solid felt roof.)

Mamava Original, XL and Solo V1 roofs

Open-grid roofs on Mamava Original, XL, and Solo V1 maximize fresh air circulation, help breastfeeding parents hear public emergency messages, and comply with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) fire codes.


Solo V2 roof

The Solo V2 pod has a solid felt roof designed to be sound dampening, but not sound proof.  When the Solo V2 is installed in areas that comply with NFPA 72 (where fire alarms are a minimum of 15 dB above ambient sound levels) the fire alarm will be audible inside the pod. The Solo V2 does not require fire suppression sprinklers as it complies with NFPA 13 (2022) Section 9.2.10 as a "small temporarily occupied enclosure."
