UV Protection UPF 50+
The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) indicated on UV-protective clothing shows how much longer somebody wearing these clothes can stay in the sun without suffering any damage to health. Therefore, the UPF-indication on textiles corresponds to the sun protection factor of sunscreens. This is based on the self-protection time of the skin, which varies considerably depending on the individual skin type. All articles with the UPF 50+ product feature have a UV protection factor of 50+ according to the Australian / New Zealand standard (AS / NZS 4399: 2017). This procedure tests the fabric in its unstretched new condition according to the solar spectrum in midsummer in Melbourne, Australia. A product marked with UPF 50+ according to this standard blocks more than 98% of the harmful UV-rays.
