Groovy Sunshades are designed with the latest and most advance automotive grade equipmetns available today. Our sunshades are manufactured to meet Original Equipment (OE) Standards. Attention to quality and safety begins at the design stage and continues throughout the entire manufacturing process.
IATF 16949 Certification
IATF 16949:2016 is the International Standard for Automotive Quality Management Systems. IATF 16949 was jointly developed by The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) members and submitted to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for approval and publication.
ISO 9001 Certification
The ISO 9000 family of quality management systems (QMS) is a set of standards that helps organizations ensure they meet customers and other stakeholder needs within statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service.
TS 16949 Certification
ISO/TS 16949 is an ISO technical specification aimed at the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the automotive industry supply chain and production.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100
Our materials are all certified by OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100. The certification is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances.
Brittleness & Heat Test
Sunshades will withstand temperature as low as -50°C and as high as 253.84°C (melting point).
The electro depositing paint used on the steel frame of the sunshades are free from Cadmium (Cd), Lead (Pb) and Mercury (Hg). Such heavy metals are usually found in ink dyes and paint.
The amount of light filtered by the mesh material is at 77.79%. It is essential to permit some light to come through the mesh material to ensure viability is not hampered when driving with the sunshades on.
Sunshades are put in a control environment to simulate temperatures from 20°C to 90°C over a set period of time to detect the odor characteristics of the materials. Our sunshades are well below permissible standards.
Ultraviolet (UV) Test
The mesh material used on all Groovy Sunshades offer effective Ultraviolet (UV) protection by blocking out 70% of Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Certified by SGS.
Groovy Sunshades are subjected to a series of rigorous test such as Weather Resistance (Lamp: Xenon-Arc, Exposure Cycle: 228 min, Exposure Duration: 732 hours), Vibration (Frequency: 15 Hz, Acceleration 5 G, Duration Time: 153,000 cycles/axis) and Impact Test (Steel Ball 50mm/500g, Impact Height: 100cm).
Materilas used in the production of Groovy Sunshades are subjected to Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) testing and analysis to ensure that nothing harmful or toxic is present. Tested and certified by SGS.
Mesh fabric used in all Groovy Sunshades are tested under a Xenon-Arc Lamp for a duration of 732 hours with the exposure cycle of 228 minutes.
