So what's the difference between SnoozeShade Plus Extra and Plus Deluxe?

So what's the difference between SnoozeShade Plus Extra and Plus Deluxe?

One of the questions that we get asked the most is what is the difference between SnoozeShade Plus Extra and SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe.

There are a few key differences which I will spell out below to help you choose the best product for you and your little one.


All SnoozeShade products are made from a double layer of our unique mesh – it’s very fine but in a double layer blocks big amounts of UV and light!

If colour is the only consideration, then we suggest you choose the product that you feel more comfortable with.

UV protection

Both products have the same inner window made from a single layer of black mesh which blocks 80% of UV.  This is the highest level of sun protection available on the market for a single layer as no chemicals are used to provide UV protection – it comes from the unique weave of the mesh.

The UV rating difference between the two products is considered negligible in terms of sun protection.  Of course, if you have a medical reason to block UV then we would always advise going for the Plus Extra.

Light blocking

Some parents have said they think that Plus Deluxe blocks less light because it’s paler – so to clear up that misconception you need to understand the difference between blocking UV and light.

Colour is a contributing factor in blocking UV naturally – so a darker fabric will block more UV.  The Deluxe fabric was developed because some parents believed that a darker fabric would increase heat levels (it doesn’t) and they feel more comfortable with a less dark colour.

The weave of the mesh also blocks UV and specifically blocks light.  All SnoozeShade products block 94% of light in a double layer – regardless of colour.  This has been tested since 2010 and has never changed. 

How the straps attach 

The other difference between the two products is

Some parents complained about the fact they either didn’t like Velcro or felt it was too noisy and might disturb their child.  So I investigated other attachment methods and found the safest poppers I could. 

Other attachment options are available but would not pass the safety standards for a newborn that I choose to use to design all my products. 

Long straps are an entrapment and strangulation hazard.  Toggles and buttons are a choking risk. Magnets are not safe to use in a children’s product. So the safest options are the Velcro and the poppers.

I really appreciate it when questions are asked so I can add them to answers we use often to help parents choose the best product for them and their little one.
