This product complies with AS/NZS 4399:1996, AS/NZS 4399:2017UPF – 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, but 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. A label with UPF50+ is on fabrics that rate higher than 50.
Why should I pay attention to the UPF rating?
Overexposure to solar UVR can cause skin cancer and premature skin aging. You can reduce your risk of developing skin cancer by wearing well-designed clothing that not only covers your skin but is made of materials that effectively block out solar UVR.
Australia and New Zealand have the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. If you work outdoors or take part in any outdoor activity you need clothing made from materials with UPF ratings of 50. UPF ratings of 50 and higher provide all-day sun protection even for people with fair skin.
A garment can only protect the skin that it covers so protect your head and any exposed skin by wearing a hat, applying sunscreen and using shaded outdoor areas. Don’t forget to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes too. You need sun protection any time the UV Index is 3 or higher.
ARPANSA’s ultraviolet radiation index is a great way of finding out how much solar UV there is throughout the day.
You can find the UV index on the ARPANSA website.
Clothing that covers more skin provides greater sun protection. The UPF rating on this item of clothing applies only to the area of skin covered and to the entire item and not individual components. Manipulations involved in clothing manufacture such as stretching and sewing may lower the UPF rating. Article design is to cover the maximum area of the body is the recommendation.
Protection may become lower –
(i) where the material is in close contact with the skin, e.g. across the shoulders if stretching occurs;
(ii) if the material is stretching;
(iii) if the material is wet, and/or
(iv) due to the effects of normal wear or prolonged exposure to pool chemicals.
