Sun umbrellas have two main values for sun protection, UV protection factor (UPF) and long-wave UV transmission (UVA). According to the “Accreditation of UV Protective Properties of Textiles” promulgated by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the labels of qualified UV protection products shall be marked with the national standard number, UPF value, 30+ or 50+, and product quality inspection certificate. Each UV protection sun umbrella will have a graded flag, and only the sun umbrella that is in compliance with the instructions is the real UV custom umbrella.

Before purchase, you should carefully look at the protection level signs.

According to the “Accreditation of UV Protective Properties of Textiles” promulgated by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), only UPF (UV protection factor value) is greater than 30, and UVA (long-wavelength UV) transmittance is less than 5%, it can be referred to as UV protection product. The standard is “UPF30+”; when UPF is greater than 50, it indicates that the product has excellent UV protection performance and the protection class is identified as “UPF50+”. Consumers should carefully check the protection class mark when purchasing, and then choose the umbrella suitable for them according to the local sun conditions.
