  • Protex 85% is ideal for campers and RV enthusiasts who are looking for an economical sun shade / drape material that will block the sun's strong rays and keep them cooler as they enjoy the outdoors.

  • What does the Percentage mean? The percentage indicates how much UV light it blocks out. 90% UV indicates that 90% of the sun is kept out, only allowing 10% in. We do not inflate our UV ratings, they are lab tested and accurate. Some companies inflate the numbers to give the perception of added value, when in fact, it clould have a lesser value.
