Ultraviolet radiation

11 July 2017

Our new charts help you find out what the ultraviolet radiation index is at our measurement sites and what time the ultraviolet radiation (UV) index will be at its highest.

All fabrics have some ability to block UVR but laboratory testing is needed to tell how useful different fabrics are for sun protection by measuring the Ultraviolet Protection Factor or 'UPF' rating.

We can assess natural and artificial UVR hazards in both public spaces and in occupational exposure situations using a variety of techniques and instruments.
