UPF 50+ is the maximum sun protective rating achievable for fabrics.
UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor and is the sun protective rating measure for fabrics.
A fabric which has been awarded a UPF 50+ rating by the Australian Government is considered to provide excellent protection.
ARPANSA is the Australian Government agency that undertakes the UPF testing and rating and has done so since 1990.
Australia is the global leader in terms of skin cancer prevention, detection and treatment.

Australians love the great outdoors and our sunny skies make the Australian lifestyle one of the most envied in the world. Notwithstanding, the extensive “Slip Slop Slap” campaign, many Australians are still exposing themselves to the severity and dangers of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
It's essential to check your skin regularly. Early detection of skin cancers is very important, especially for melanoma, as the survival rate is much greater when caught early. Research shows that it can sometimes be as little as a matter of months between when a melanoma is first detected to the point where it metastasises and becomes a lot more difficult to treat.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends sun protective clothing as the best way to protect your skin against the sun's damaging rays. SOLBARI UPF50+ garments provide the highest sun protection rating for fabrics available in the world.
