Good but not spf 50

This is a handy shelter, fast delivery, easy to use, fold back, and secure down. I gave 3 not 5 stars as it is not spf50 as stated. Just tried it today and burned! Please note I did not use sun lotion (school boy error and noted for next time) however if it had blocking capacity of spf50 I wouldn't have thought I'd need to. Overall a good product but please don't make my mistake and think that it is offering burn free shade...!

What’s the UV protection???1 answer

I see it says UV50 but seen some comment saying it’s not? Wanna but for my 6months bub and don’t want him getting burnt as it’s the whole point of buying one.

G'day Janine,

Whilst we don't have the ability to test these ratings ourselves in store. Smart Shade have assured us that the Pop-Up Beach Sunshelter is rated at UPF 50 . We'd always encourage people to apply sunscreen as well as an added, extra precaution.

Waterproof?1 answer

Is this sunshade waterproof? I need a temporary waterproof structure to keep a section of the lawn dry for my rain-shy dogs!

- Penrith(1 year ago)

G'day Natalie, 

The Smart Shade Pop Up shelter isn't designed to create a completely waterproof area, it's main purpose is to offer sun protection at the beach.

The fabric will offer some water resistance, but if you use this on your lawn, rain will seep in underneath the walls as it doesn’t have a floor.

I'd also say that this shelter isn't designed to be set up for more than a couple of hours at a time, so I would suggest looking into a more solid option to house your pooches to be on the safe side, you might have better luck at a pet store as they should have something available.

Capacity1 answer

How many people is this suitable for?

- Melbourne (1 year ago)

G'day Bee, 

There isn't a recommended amount, but as this shelter is 230L x 125W cm, would say that you could fit either two adults, or three children comfortably inside the Smart Shade Pop Up Beach Sunshelter Medium.

Floor1 answer

Hi, does the medium size come with a detachabke floor like the family size tent?

- Melbourne (1 year ago)

Hey Jack,

If you're after the floor it's worthwhile getting the slightly larger family tent as the small and medium shelters don't have this additional feature.
