UPF-Rated Awnings: The Best Way to Shield Yourself from Harmful UV Rays in the Northeast
When you think of an uncomfortable summer, maybe the sticky memory of ice cream melting all over your fingers comes to mind. Or perhaps you remember that particularly bad sunburn you got while enjoying an afternoon out with your friends.
Regardless, we’re willing to bet sun and sweat are all a part of the sweltering mix.
So when the summer comes back around to blanket the Northeast in a wave of heat, how can you stay protected? Don’t worry — Sunesta has got you covered. Literally.
Nearing Heat in the Northeast
Summer in the Northeast can be an exceptionally bright, hot, and sunny time of year. The summer months of June, July, and August are especially considered to be the peak times for hot temperatures and sunny days.
Consequently, this season is one where individuals are at higher risk for sunburns and other skin damage caused by harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
What’s more, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Nearly half of UV radiation is received between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are the strongest.” In other words, when families and individuals are most likely to get outside, it is also one of the most dangerous times of the day to stay in direct sunlight.
Thus, to say that adequate protection is necessary would be an understatement.
Finding Fast Relief in Sunesta’s Awning Fabric
Sunesta offers a variety of retractable awnings that provide both relief from the heat and protection from prolonged sun exposure in the Northeast.
Specifically, unlike many other awnings, most Sunesta fabrics boast a UPF rating of 30 or higher and have been recognized by the Skin Cancer Foundation — thus earning their prestigious Seal of Recommendation!
This means that those fabrics can block both UVA rays (which account for about 95% of all ultraviolet rays) as well as UVB, thereby providing maximum protection when you and your family are outdoors.
And who wouldn’t want to invest in that kind of revolutionary shade?
