FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
Buoyancy aid for surfing and bodyboarding.
This vest is not a life-saving vest but a floatation aid. While it provides additional buoyancy, it does not protect against drowning and the user must already know how to swim. It has a split foam design intended to facilitate the practice of surfing and bodyboarding, without discomfort when the child is lying on its board. This vest must be used with adult supervision. Observe the weight range indicated on the vest.
As equipment for individual protection, this product should be used in accordance with the conditions specified in the attached instructions. These instructions may be downloaded below.
UV protection even when wet
The fabric of this TRIBORD UV product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports.
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.
The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation on even the most sensitive skin. However, we recommend that you wear a UV protection T-shirt under the vest to reduce the risk of irritation.
Protect your little ones!
Young skin is very sensitive to the sun as children's defence systems are established after the age of 3. With identical exposure, the effects of the sun are 2 to 3 times stronger on a child than on an adult. It is therefore very important to protect them effectively.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this vest protects against the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from water, sand ...), heat, time of day, etc. must be taken into account. Wearing this vest does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.
