Even better, they are also attractive additions to any municipal, academic, commercial, or residential environment. Many different colors are available that can be matched to the compliment the specific colors of outdoor architecture.
The importance of protecting people from direct sunlight cannot be understated. Did you know that one sunburn prior to the age of 13 doubles a human’s risk of melanoma? Did you know that 80 percent of all UV exposure a person receives occurs prior to the age of 18?
Studies indicate that at present trends, 1 in 5 of children playing outside today will grow up to develop skin cancer as adults. Whereas in 1930, the chances of getting skin cancer were 1 out of 1500, today they are only 1 out of 75. Now is the time to act, because recent studies have shown that melanoma rates have doubled over the past 20 years.
But something can be done. Fabric shade structures play a critical role in reducing skin cancer rates by reducing UV exposure up to 95%.
The fabric used in Easy Rack shade structures is superb in many respects. It features a strong weave that gives it a durable texture that is resistant to rough weather. Special treatments make it resistant to ultraviolet light, and many sun canopies are also fire retardant as well.
Fabric structures are used to create all sorts of outdoor shade structures. In corporate environments, municipal court areas, city halls, and schools, they can be stretched over sidewalks and patio areas to create awnings. Larger canopies can be stretched over entire open areas. In places where skylights are used, these sun protection screens can also be used as skylight cover to prevent harmful UV radiation from finding its way indoors.
Fabric shade structures have a widely diverse range of applications. They can be used to provide shade for plazas in downtown areas where people go for lunch breaks, outdoor events, and conversation. Fabric structures can shield they eyes of players on tennis courts so they won’t miss a crucial shot at the worst possible time.
Other athletic facilities such as ball parks use them as well to protect players in a number of sports, and to keep bleacher areas free of direct sunlight so fans can better see both the players and the ball in play.
Fabric structures can be stretched over parking lots to prevent car interiors and steering wheel columns from becoming hot to the touch. Car lots often use these sun canopies to keep new models ready for a comfortable test drive.
Companies often stretch large canopies over walkways between buildings so that executives in suits can walk comfortably in the shade without the heat ruining dry cleaning and makeup. Public parks normally have a sun canopy over pavilions so family reunions, outdoor concerts, and special events can be held in the comfortable shade.
Another very important place to stretch a fabric shade structure is a public swimming pool or water park. Water makes the skin very vulnerable to UV radiation. Keeping children and adults sheltered from direct sunlight while they swim is not only good medical sense, it is good public service.
