UPF rating explained: why it matters when choosing a UV shirt

When looking for a UV shirt to protect you from the harmful effects of the sun, the UPF rating is an important factor to consider. But what exactly is UPF rating and why is it important? In this blog you will learn everything you need to know about UPF rating and why it is so important when choosing a UV shirt. We explain how UPF rating works and what value the KingsPower UV shirt has.


UPF rating is a measure of the protection that clothing offers against UV radiation. UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and it is used to indicate how much of the UV radiation is blocked by the fabric. The higher the UPF rating, the better the fabric protects against UV rays. For example, a UPF rating of 50 means that only 1/50th of the UV rays pass through the fabric, so the fabric blocks 98% of the UV rays.

UPF rating is important because UV rays can be harmful to the skin. Exposure to UV radiation can lead to sunburn, skin aging and skin cancer. By wearing clothing with a high UPF rating, you can protect yourself against these harmful effects of UV rays.
