We all love sunshine but UV rays can be dangerous to our delicate skin. An outdoor umbrella can be a beautiful addition to your patio or outdoor area but does it provide adequate protection? Here is more information on choosing an outdoor umbrella for UV protection.

We live for sunny days on balconies, cafes, and our garden patios, but UV rays from the sun can be quite harmful if you don’t take the necessary precautions. About 106,110 new melanomas were diagnosed in America alone in 2021 – a portion that could’ve been prevented with sun protection. Sunscreen is essential to protect yourself from UV rays but it should also be reapplied after swimming or sweating. If you are not able to do this or you want full protection, you need shade. 

Outdoor umbrellas provide the adequate shade you need, so that you can take off your hat and glasses, and relax. A good outdoor umbrella made from quality material has UV filters that filter out UV radiation for optimal sun protection. In addition to forming a barrier between you and the sun, many outdoor umbrellas are designed for style and elegance, making them a great addition to outdoor establishments and homes seeking sun protection, while creating aesthetic appeal.

To choose an umbrella that provides adequate protection, you need to look at 2 factors:

  1. The fabric and quality of the umbrella
  2. The stability and mobility of the umbrella

You cannot compromise when it comes to the fabric as it needs to be of the highest quality to provide good protection against the sun. Ensure the fabrics are manufactured with filters that provide maximum protection against UV radiation. 

With wind and movement, your umbrella needs to also be stable and provide protection regardless of the time of day. An outdoor umbrella that can be adjusted, rotated, or tilted will help you to provide sun protection regardless of the angle of the sunlight or weather condition.
