Cancer Council Australia gives approval for Sun Safe Awning Range


Every summer seems to be getting hotter, but the harsh American summer sun shouldn’t stop avid adventurers from hitting the road and exploring the great outdoors, making the right awning essential. Not all awnings can shield you from UV radiation, which is why Rhino-Rack is proud that its Sun Safe Awning Range is not only top-of-the-line but endorsed. The Cancer Council Australia has given its accreditation after testing with the extreme climate and harsh Australian sun, confirming the range offers maximum UV protection.

The team at Rhino-Rack take great pride in seeing their community get out there without having to worry about the consequences of exposing themselves to the elements, especially when it comes to the hard-hitting sun.

With a UPF 50 plus rating to provide excellent protection from UV radiation, Rhino-Rack’s NEW Batwing and revamped SunSeekers are both Cancer Council endorsed products, meaning you will still be sun safe while relaxing in the shade at your chosen destination.

Head of Marketing for Rhino-Rack, Matt Hankin, said, “We’re excited to be partnering with Cancer Council, a leading charity playing a crucial role in helping to reduce the prevalence of skin cancer in Australia. Having Cancer Council’s endorsement on our Batwing and Sunseekers gives our consumers confidence when purchasing our awnings, reassuring them they’ll be sun safe when combined with other sun protection measures.”

Professor Sanchia Aranda, Cancer Council CEO, said that Cancer Council is delighted to have a company of the caliber of Rhino-Rack as a product licensee partner.

“Both Rhino-Rack and Cancer Council share a commitment to education and innovation, especially when it comes to protecting people against the potential damage that can be caused by exposure to UV radiation. Our partnership with Rhino-Rack not only brings innovation in sun protection, but the income generated will make a valuable contribution to our vision of a cancer-free future.”

Every purchase of Rhino-Rack’s Batwing and SunSeekers will support Cancer Council’s work in cancer research, education and support services, helping them take a step closer to finding new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
