Ever met someone who enjoys standing in the sun or rain for hours on end? Probably not. People like the option of having a roof over their heads, even when they’re outdoors. And with shade canopies, you can provide sweet relief from sun and rain in just about any environment, even where space is limited. As we trudge through another sweltering Texas summer, this is a perfect time to explore the benefits of adding shade canopies to your area.

Blocking harmful UV rays

The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can not only cause a nasty sunburn; they’re also a major risk factor for most skin cancers. Sun shades provide safety from damaging UV rays in numerous environments:

  • In pool areas, where families can escape the sun between dips in the water
  • At playgrounds and play spaces, where kids can take breaks to prevent sunstroke
  • In outdoor seating areas, where visitors can stay longer without having to worry about sunburn
  • In automotive detail areas, where employees can get the job done while keeping their skin safe from UV damage

Boosting outdoor businesses

When you install shade canopies at your outdoor business, it helps attract more people by offering relief from the sun and a place to stay dry in case of a sudden cloudburst. Furthermore, by providing a more comfortable environment, you’ll encourage customers to stay longer and spend more.

Serving multiple purposes

Shade canopies are durable, built to withstand even harsh weather conditions, and can be used for a variety of purposes. For instance, they can shelter fragile plants at nurseries or protect automobiles or boats from the paint damage that can be caused by extended exposure to direct sunlight.

Improving the look of your space

Because of their clean lines, shade canopies fit beautifully with most environmental designs, and they can add a refreshing pop of color to your pool area, picnic area, or just about any commercial outdoor space. These hardworking assets can improve the “eye appeal” of your area, which will attract more customers.
