Shade for Safety at your School

The sun has been proven to have some very harmful side effects ranging from burns, heat-stroke, to cancers such as melanoma. According to the Australian Government website ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency), Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with two out of three Australians developing some form of skin cancer during their lifetime. Continuous exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) may lead to premature ageing of the skin and eventually skin cancer. The majority of skin cancers in Australia are caused by exposure to UV radiation in sunlight.

As a caregiver of school children, it is then a schools responsibly to ensure every child has protection from the sun. Thankfully, with our architectural grade specialised fabric, our shade structures will provide such effective sun protection and peace of mind.
