Protection from UV - PROFILTER
The knit of the TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). This guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The direct integration of ceramic particles in the fibre of the product provides durable protection with time, even after washing.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
This hat has 2 removable tightening systems: -A string for calm water conditions or quite simply for the stroll by the seaside. - A neoprene cord for excellent support in more agitated conditions in or outside water (surf, dinghy sailing, stand-up paddle, etc.)
