Benefits of Shade Sails
Shade sails are popular with many homeowners and business owners because of their many practical benefits. They are versatile and can be used in many different residential, commercial or industrial areas, covering any sort of outdoor space that needs protection from the elements.
Some popular places in which shade sails are used include parks, playgrounds and amphitheatres. In addition, they are often used in sports clubs such as golf courses and tennis courts to protect athletes from the sun.
Protection from UV rays is the primary benefit of a shade sail, and this is one that shouldn't be dismissed lightly. With a good shade sail (the best can offer up to 98% UV protection) almost no harmful UV rays can penetrate the fabric, keeping the skin protected from sun damage such as sunburn and skin cancer no matter what time of day it is or how extreme the heat.
But UV protection isn't the only benefit- shade sails also provide ventilation, as they are made from fabrics that allow cool air to circulate.
Another advantage is the semi-permanence of your shade sail- it is not permanently installed, so it can be set up and taken down as needed, for example during a storm or if the area is not being used any more.
Some people enjoy the aesthetic value of shade sails- with the appropriate design a shade sail can contribute an appealing aspect to gardens and patios. As they come in a range of different sizes, shapes and colours, you can find one to suit your desires.
