After another hot summer, there was a real need for shade and UV protection. A great solution for both are Shade sails, and the designs make any outdoor area classy and fun. When it is so hot outside, it can be too uncomfortable to enjoy your outdoor living spaces. Temperatures under a shade sail can actually be reduced by as much as 15%.
Some of the health effects of overexposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays includes but are not limited to:
- Skin cancer (melanoma and non-melanoma)
- Premature aging of the skin and other skin problems
- Cataracts and other eye damage
- Immune system suppression
Depending on the fabrics used to make shade sails, up to 98% of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can be blocked. This can definitely reduce some of the harmful effects from overexposure from the sun.
