The American Cancer Society reports over 1 million new cases of skin cancer each year. Children are particularly at risk, both because of their sensitive skin and because they spend more of their time outdoors.

Our shade structures block up to 96% of cancer-causing UV rays and protect children and adults from the harmful rays of the sun while providing shade and keeping the area cooler.

“Children receive 80% of their total lifetime sun exposure by the time they turn 18. In 2003, more than 1 million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the US. The earlier parents incorporate sun protection into their children’s daily activities, the lower their lifetime risk will be for developing skin cancer.”
