The Importance Of Pool Shade in 2020

The Importance Of Pool Shade in 2020

November 18th, 2020 · Published to Shade Sails by Steve Lewis

Having adequate sun protection whilst in a swimming pool has always been an important factor in Australia. But now, in COVID 2020, where we have been forced to spend more time at home than ever before, it’s more important than ever.

Summer is upon us, and we will be spending more time outdoors, and more time in the pool.

For those fortunate enough to have a swimming pool, sun protection should always be a priority, especially now, when temperatures and UV factors are at their highest.

While we all know to slip, slop, slap, how many of us do? How many reapply sunscreen when required?

It’s easy to forget such things when you’re caught up in the moment, having a good time with friends or family. It’s even easy to forget to make sure our children have followed sun safety guidelines.

The beauty of pool shade is, it lets you off the hook.

Pool shade, such as pool shade sails are your backup defence against the sun. That’s not to say you never have to worry about slipping on a shirt, slopping on a hat, and slapping on sunscreen ever again. But, with the ability to offer a 99% UV block rating, they sure help in the prevention of sunburn or worse, sun cancer.
