Our goal to protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun is huge, Australians are most at risk. Aussies are number one in the world for skin cancer conditions. The need for shade sails came, to prevent the UV rays. Shade sails were invented from the sails on ships which were just anchored down from eye holes in the corner of the sails.
This day and age the shade sails have been created for protection against not only the harsh sun, but other kinds of weather. In the noon its when the sun is at its most intense and skin cancer is at its peak. These harmful effects are due to the time of the day where there is increased UV rays.
What is important to remember and get our heads around are Ultra violet Protection Factor or UPF. This is the rating they use and helps to give a gauge of materials to protect skin from Ultra Violet Rays and prevent skin cancer. So if the protection factor gets stronger we will have increased protection against those nasty Ultra Violet Rays.
