Block Sun

While we all love a good tan, we also know how damaging the sun can be. Not just to your skin, but also to your expensive patio furniture. Fortunately, your outdoor shades can block up to 95% of harmful UV rays. That will help protect your furniture from fading and keep you from glopping on several layers of sunscreen. Solar shades are also available in a range of openness levels, ranging from 3% to 15%, allowing you to customize exactly how much sunlight you want to invite to your outdoor event.
