Summer months can be extremely inviting for people who enjoy staying outdoors. They provide a relief from the extremely cold temperatures that are associated with the winter months and, clear skies are usually created in the summer months which means that there is an abundant amount of sunshine. This is preferable for many people as they prefer to tan outside in the sun and enjoy the large amounts of sunshine. Restaurants and bars also seem to take advantage of this fondness of sunshine for many people as they provide outdoor areas where guests can sit and enjoy their favourite drink or meal. This means that there is a need for adequate shading to be present as, no one likes to have their food or drink in direct sunlight. Go here for more information about shade sail repairs.
In addition to just the pure preference of many people to not have food or drink in direct sunlight, there is a more pressing issue which needs to be addressed when considering exposure to direct sunlight. Direct sunlight contains a large amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The sun emits large amounts of ultraviolet radiation which travels to earth because of the vacuum of space. Most of this radiation is stopped because of the Ozone layer that is protecting the earth but it is not 100% blocked. This means that some of their harmful radiation passes through the Ozone layer and reaches the earth. Exposure to large amounts of ultraviolet radiation can lead to extensive amount of skin damage which can cause a wide variety of different problems such as skin cancer. This means that adequate measures need to be taken to make sure that the exposure to ultraviolet radiation is reduced through a variety of different means. Sunscreen is one of the main methods that is used by people to make sure the exposure of the skin to ultraviolet radiation is reduced and the harmful effects that are associated with the exposure to ultraviolet radiation are therefore also reduced.
Direct Method of Reducing Exposure
However, a more direct method of reducing the exposure to ultraviolet radiation is to simply limit exposure to direct sunlight. Large deck umbrellas and other shading equipment can be used to make sure that people enjoy the setting of the outdoors while making sure that they are not be exposed to large amounts of harmful radiation through direct exposure to the sunlight.
