Benefits of School Sun Shades and Shade Sails in Brisbane

Organisations such as schools that work with children know the importance of protecting them at all times. However, protection from the harsh Australian sun is sometimes overlooked. School sun shades in Brisbane offer many benefits to keep your students and staff members cool, comfortable, and protected from sunburns and skin cancer. UV Protection School sail shades in Brisbane offer a high level of protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It’s a good thing that kids are spending more and more time outdoors – but it’s our job to keep them safe and healthy as they enjoy the fresh air. Shade sails offer up to 98% protection from UV rays, allowing teachers and students to spend time outside safe and free from worry about skin damage. Cooler Play Areas Most children love running around and playing outside year-round. However, in the height of summer, it can be unbearably hot in the sun. Shade structures provide a cool, sheltered area where kids can play comfortably without becoming overheated. Having shaded areas is important so that students have a cool place to rest and avoid sunburn and sunstroke. Style and Colour Sun shades are available in a wide range of styles and colours, from calming pastels to bright, funky designs. There are also countless unique designs and shapes to choose from and various sizes to suit your specific needs. You may want just one sail for a small shaded area, or multiple sails to create a larger covered area such as a playground or event space. Multiple sails can be arranged in any configuration for a contemporary, cheerful look. Create a calm, peaceful shaded area or brighten up your space with bolder designs – it’s up to you. Ventilation Fabric sails are constructed from a breathable material that allows air through. That means that your students will enjoy not only protection from the sun but also a pleasant breeze. Being able to spend time outside in the fresh air enjoying the comfortable breeze is a great alternative to trying to cool down in warm buildings or classrooms that get a little too much sunlight on hot afternoons. Pleasant Eating Area You can use sail shades to create a comfortable outdoor picnic or dining area by adding picnic tables and benches underneath, or simply use the space for picnics on the grass, a fun activity for children and adults alike. Shade structures make any outdoor area more comfortable and pleasant when it’s time for lunch.

Why You Should Install a Shade Sail and Where to Find Custom Heavy Duty Shade Sails in Brisbane

Those who live in Australia are familiar with the beautiful weather and abundant sunshiny days. Long, warm summers are a luxury – but there are downsides. UV exposure, sunburn, and the energy costs associated with cooling homes and businesses are a few of these. However, if you’re looking for an excellent solution for your restaurant, café, school, park, sporting facility, or other outdoor area, shade sails in Brisbane provide the answer. Here are a few of the reasons you’ll be glad you had yours installed. You – and any visitors – will stay cooler and safer When you install custom shade sails at your Brisbane business, you, your employees, and your guests will enjoy the lower temperature under the shade. In fact, the summer heat here makes shade sails a necessity for any business or organisation with an outdoor area. At Versatile Structures, we can install your sails in a wide variety of configurations to give you the most shade and the best aesthetic. Our shades provide UV protection, keeping the people under them safe from sunburn and the health risks associated with exposure to UV rays. Lower energy bills Heavy duty shade sails do more than just make you more comfortable; they can also reduce your energy costs. Shade sails add shelter to your business. When they are installed close enough to the building, they can help keep the interior cooler and minimise your need to run the air conditioner. In fact, shade sails often pay for themselves over time by saving you money on your cooling expenses. Added aesthetic appeal Not only are shade sails practical, but they are also beautiful design pieces. You can dramatically improve the look of your business with the right shade sail. Choose from a wide variety of colours and shapes to find the one that suits your business best. Protection for your property It’s common knowledge that the sun’s rays are potentially harmful to people, but you may not realise that they are also harmful to your property. Direct sunlight can fade outdoor carpets and furniture as well as affect them structurally. It can also have a damaging effect on vehicles. Shade sails help by protecting your property from sunlight. Also, there are waterproof shade sails available to protect your property as well as your guests from wet weather.
