Skin Protection: Shading from the Sun’s Ultra Violet Rays

ultimate eclipse retractable awning for skin protectionYou want your outdoor living space to be cooler on hot sunny days so you’re purchasing awnings to provide this comfort for your family, along with obvious savings on air conditioning costs because awnings keep the heat from coming through the windows and walls, so indoor temperatures are cooler too. A very important additional benefit of installing awnings on your home is skin protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. It’s easy to say, “Stay out of the sun.” However, for many of us, it’s just not that easy. We look forward to sunny days and want to enjoy them. Using sunscreen is always a good idea, but if you want to sit and relax alone, with your family, or entertain on the patio, shading is the answer for the best solar protection.

The Skin Cancer Foundation has reported that 1 in 5 Americans will get skin cancer in the course of a lifetime and someone dies every hour from skin cancer. The deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma is rising faster than any other form of cancer. These are very scary statistics and we all should do everything we can to minimize the risk for ourselves and our families and friends. Eclipse Shading Systems® products will provide the solar protection you and your family need, blocking up to 98% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays. Successfully avoid the risks of skin cancer by using sunblock and for peace of mind, find the Eclipse dealer near you and find out what shading products are best for your home.
