FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
Profilter UV protection
The material of this TRIBORD UV-protection product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-1 standard for the top half of the body, it guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibre of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this UV-resistant shorty suit provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. Wearing this shorty 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.
Protect your little ones!
Babies' 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.
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 product's knit reduces the hold of sand in the textile.
Young children have a head size that is proportionately larger than that of adults. To make it easier when getting dressed, this UV-resistant product has press studs at the back.
The polyester fabric allows it to dry quickly after being in the water. In windy conditions it is nevertheless advisable to dry your baby and his or her shorty with a towel to reduce shivering.
