Shade Australia is committed to providing high quality sun protection. Our registered trademark identifies us as World Leaders of the Sunshade Age. When selecting fabric to cover our shades we endeavor to select premium quality fabrics which offer high to very high UV protection.
It is however important to be aware that even when you are under a shade structure or umbrella, you can be still exposed to high levels of reflected UV radiation, particularly if you are near the water, sand or around hard surfaces. That’s why we always recommend the use of UV protective clothing when you are enjoying your shade in the outdoors. Long clothing, hats, and sunglasses that meet Australian standards are recommended as part of your personal protection against the harsh Australian sun.
