Protect Outdoor Furniture
When blue skies beckon people to go outside and enjoy activities and backyard parties throughout the summer, you will see shade popping up at outdoor restaurant dining spaces, hotel pool areas and recreational parks. A Superior Shade structure is designed with durable fabric materials on a sturdy frame, with some frames able to be positioned to block the sun's rays at any angle.
Are sunshades really necessary in outdoor residential and commercial spaces? Check out these benefits and reasons for why a sunshade should be used every day you spend time outdoors.
Superior Shade Protects Outdoor Furniture
Protection for Outdoor Furniture, Toys and Other Objects
Outdoor furniture and objects are built to withstand various weather conditions. Yet being outdoors for extended periods of time can still cause furniture to be slowly damaged by the sun. UV rays slowly degrade certain plastic and fabric materials, causing them to age and crack quickly. Colors fade and fabric becomes worn from the sun's intense light.
Placing a sunshade above outdoor furniture, children's playhouses, workbenches and other outdoor items can prolong their life. Another benefit of shading outdoor objects is that metals, plastics and wood absorb sunlight, heating up the surface and making them unbearable to touch. Sunshades will keep objects cool so that people can lounge on chairs or children can play on playgrounds without burning sensitive skin.
Protection Against Heat Stroke and Hypothermia
Another unique benefit of sun shades is that they can drastically reduce the temperature underneath the fabric canopy. When outdoor temperatures reach triple digits, these shades provide a cool spot for people who are getting overheated, where they can rest and rehydrate without the strong sunlight beating down on their heads.
In addition, it can prevent children from experiencing hyporthermia, which is a type of heat-related illness when the body temperature elevates to dangerous levels from heat exposure. When children are playing outside, their bodies can heat up three to five times faster than an adult’s body. Providing a place for children to take breaks and cool down is essential so they can have a fun and safe time out in the sun.
So consider using these versatile shades for any outdoor space. Protect people and outdoor objects from the sun's harsh light and rising temperatures, and let everyone be cool and comfortable when outside.
