Protect your skin
The SPF is used as a multiplier for the skin's self-protection time and indicates how long you can effectively stay in the sun with the textile without damaging the skin. Comparable to the SPF of sun creams, it is the calculation basis for the so-called self-protection of the skin.
This varies greatly depending on the skin type. The skin of a person with skin type I, for example, with red or blond hair, blue eyes and a very light complexion, has an intrinsic protection time of about five to ten minutes.
If this person exposes himself longer unprotected to the blazing sun, he risks a dangerous sunburn. Protected with a textile with UV protection SPF 50, the time spent in the sun can be extended by a factor of fifty without provoking skin damage, i.e. to about 5 hours (50 x 5 min = 250 min).
The sun protection of Knirps umbrellas is tested according to Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 4033:2017
