Closed Cell Foam for Promotional Sun Visors During the Event Season

As the weather turns milder, we can begin to expect the upcoming calendar of events that we all know and love to attend. Whether that’s visiting a festival such as Glastonbury, sporting events like Wimbledon or Formula One, or supporting athletes as they run their way through the London Marathon, we’re all fond of being outside when the weather calls for it.

It’s easy to forget to pack items such as sunglasses or hats though, and typically speaking, in the UK we’re not always prepared for every eventuality when it comes to the forecast. Sun visors are a great product to offer as giveaways to event spectators and can present tremendous promotional opportunities to brands, especially when the event is televised.

Closed cell polyethylene foam is inexpensive, lightweight and our ZOUCH eFoam is also resistant to UV. That makes it especially great for the manufacture of sun visors, and a visors’ wide brim allows for printed advertisement, which will create excellent brand awareness on the day of the event.

It has also become more and more prevalent in recent years to protect yourself from the damaging effects of the sun, and by providing a practical and protective giveaway, your brand is only going to appear more favourable to spectators.

Events where promotional sun visors are often worn:

  • Festivals
  • Exhibitions
  • Outdoor cinemas
  • Roadshows
  • Motorsport events
  • Golfing events
  • Sporting events
  • Televised events
  • Theme parks
  • Corporate sponsorship

Lightweight and comfortable

For those at sporting events, whether spectating or taking part, foam sun visors are lightweight and easily ventilated. Due to their soft, closed cell structure, they’re comfortable for the wearer but also remain waterproof, if weather conditions were to change.

Consider for sporting events such as: tennis, marathon running, motorsports (spectators) and golf.

Anti-glare and protection

Due to the shape of sun visors, they can offer more coverage than a traditional cap as the wearer can easily move them around dependant on the angle or height of the sun. The wide brim of the visor protects the eyes and skin from uv-rays too.

Wide colour range

At Zouch, we’re able to create closed cell polyethylene foam in a range of colours to match your desired look or brand.
