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 40 means that the fabric blocks 95% of UVB and 97% of UVA rays.
. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays. This provides the most effective protection.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Designed and tested by our teams in Hendaye, France.
The Tribord global design centre is located on the banks of the Bidassoa river in Hendaye. This allows us to design products in contact with users and in the marine environment.
All of our sun protection components are laboratory-tested by our engineers. They meet the current standard: EN 13758.
We conduct tests on all of the materials used before starting production. We also have our own measuring equipment in our laboratories to supplement the tests conducted in external laboratories. The products are laboratory tested when wet and dry as well as in use whilst worn (with the stretch that occurs during use).
