Avoiding the Risks of Skin Cancer

When selecting awnings and solar shades for the home, the savvy American consumer is looking for affordability, style, durability and protection from the harsh sun. Installing Eclipse Shading Systems® will give you the peace of mind you’re looking for by providing extra protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Eclipse retractable awnings, window awnings, solar screens and the Eclipse Butterfly motorized free-standing retractable awning block up to 98% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays and supply significant cooling.

One in five Americans will get skin cancer over the course of a lifetime. The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that more than 1 million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer in the coming year. The incidence of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is rising faster than any other cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher but cautions that sunscreen alone is not enough. Additional recommendations are to cover up and seek the shade, especially from mid morning to late afternoon.

With the increasing strength of UV radiation, we must also consider our health during leisure hours. The versatility of Eclipse retractable awnings, exterior screens and interior solar screens will give you the protection you need while allowing you to continue to enjoy the beauty of your yard and home without the worry of UV exposure. So every time you when you roll out your Eclipse awning, blocking harsh and damaging UV rays, you’re rolling out savings – in energy, home furnishings and your family’s health.

Eclipse Shading Systems® is a proud financial and volunteer contributor to the American Cancer Society® in the communities where we live and work.
