These Great Fabrics Can Help Reduce Your Risk In Getting Skin Cancer.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, just because it feels cool outside, that doesn’t mean UV rays aren’t reaching the ground and more importantly your skin. In fact, even on cloudy days, UV rays are still coming though. So if you’re outside at an event or party, remember to try to keep yourself well shaded! Sunbrella performance fabrics have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation by the Skin Cancer Foundation, an international organization committed to the education and prevention of skin cancer, the world’s most common cancer. Understanding the SPF or sun protection factor of your shade canopy fabrics will aid you in making informed decisions for your shaded outdoor living area and the overall protection of your skin. Sunbrella is not the only fabric with a high UV rating. New Haven Awning is also proud to carry Tempotest, Weblon Coastline and Firesist. Sunbrella high-performance fabrics have the look and feel of cotton. They’re quick-drying, very easy to clean, and hold their brilliant colors for many years to come.
