  • UPF

    This product complies with AS/NZL 4399:1996

    UPF — What does it mean? Ultraviolet Radiation, or UV is present in sunlight. Sunburn is a sign that your skin has received too much sun. Over exposure to UV over many years may cause serious health problems such as skin cancer and cataracts. Garments that are sensibly designed for sun protection reduce your UV exposure. It is often difficult to tell if a fabric offers good sun protection. The Ultraviolet Protection factor (UPF) shows how well a fabric protects your skin from solar UV and lets you select sun protective clothing with confidence. Remember that the garment only protects the skin it covers, protect other areas by wearing a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen and use shaded outdoor areas. UPF ratings range from 15 to 50. Fabrics that rate higher than 50 are labeled UPF 50+.
