Summers brings with it a blinding glare and sweltering heat. But there are days during summer when you would want to spend time relaxing, sitting on the patio, sipping your iced lemonade. Well, the solution to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays while enjoying or relaxing in your backyard is by installing a sun shade.
A sun shade essentially looks exactly like a ship’s sail. A commercial sun shadesare attached on a high pole and provides shade from the sun by serving as a canopy.
It is often called as a shade sail and very high quality fabric like canvas or PVC is used to make it by stretching it to a desired shape to get the right tension. The sun shade is treated with UV protection thereby ensuring that you can stay safe under it and not worry about having a burnt skin. The great thing about thesesun shade is the fact that they do not allow rain water to get collected by letting the water droplets to pass through them, thereby avoiding sagging.
Just like the awnings, a sun shade is to be installed above the window, along the overhanging roof or on the entire exterior, depending upon one’s requirements, both are available in the market. A flat shade for instance, is a structure which is connected right to the wall, thereby providing a structure like that of a roof which protrudes from the exterior. A slope shade on the other hand slopes from the exterior and can block approximately ninety-five per cent of the harmful sun rays. Both are made up of durable fabric and can easily be seen outside cafes and restaurants which have an outside seating arrangement for the customers.
A sun shade can be customized according to a person’s requirement. It could be small to cover only your patio or could be large enough to cover an entire football field.
The installation process is easy but it is best to let professionals do the job to get just the appropriate amount of tension required for the sun shade. You also have the freedom to choose the colour of the sun shade so that it matches with that of your backyard or home. You can get customized shade sails too in case you want it for the advertising program for your business. By getting it custom designed, you can have a desired design or pattern incorporated onto the commercial sun shades.
A sun shade is not only utilitarian but is aesthetically pleasing as well. Most people who own one love this feature of the shade sail. Other than protecting you from the sun, it creates a focal point in the place it is installed in. Also, the fact that it is shaped exactly like a ship’s sail, it allows the wind to pass through it thereby making you feel cool, protected as well as comfortable.
Getting a sun shade installed help in shielding the rooms which face the sun directly. A dark coloured sun shade would be the best for such situations. A darker sun shade would be able to trap more heat thereby helping in making the room a bit darker and cooler. The weave of the fabric of the sun shade is also an important factor to consider. A fabric having a broader weave has more space in between them and therefore allows less shade compared to others.
Considering all the above things, a sun shade is probably the best thing to protect yourself from the harsh rays, while you enjoy with your family.
