Posted on: April 12th, 2014 by Quik Shade


Sun protection should be everyone’s biggest concern when summer comes rolling around. Nothing ruins outdoor fun more than a bad sunburn or worse, sunstroke. The long term effects from sun damage can be even more serious. No matter where you plan to spend time this summer, make sun protection a priority. Here’s how to use a canopy and other essentials in some of summer’s top destinations.

1. The Beach.

No trip to the beach is complete without plenty of high spf sunscreen and portable shade. Bringing a canopy along will provide a comfortable, shady spot to relax, eat, or just enjoy the scenery without having to worry about getting burned. Canopies are sturdy enough to stand up to windy beach conditions, as well as staying put on uneven ground. They’re also easy to set up and pack away with the rest of your beach gear. Enjoy the sun, sand, and waves without having to worry.

2. The Park.

Summer means more reasons to spend a day at the park for a party, barbeque, sports event, or just a relaxing time. But the long hours spent at these events can pose a serious risk to your skin. When you’re busy having fun socializing, hanging out or watching a game it can be easy to forget to reapply sunscreen. A portable canopy can solve all that. Smaller canopies are great for small gatherings and large canopies can provide shade for a whole party.

3. Camping Trips.

Serious campers know that having the proper gear can make all the difference on a trip. Along with a tent, food and campfire equipment, bug spray, and sleeping bags, having a portable canopy can make camping more comfortable and worry free. Setting up a canopy near your picnic and campfire area instantly creates a shady place for everyone to gather for meals and relaxation. Create a bug free zone under a canopy with citronella candles so everyone can enjoy their time without having to deal with pests.

4. Outdoor Markets And Festivals.

Summer means a there will be a plethora of outdoor events to attend. Music festivals, flea markets, farmer’s markets, and street fairs are just a sampling of the kinds of summer events that happen across the country. If you plan a selling or doing any kind of business at one of these events, you know that having a canopy is necessary.

Long days spent in the sun mean you need protect yourself, as well as your customers. Industrial sized canopies provide the protection and cool air circulation you need to survive an outdoor festival. Your customers will thank you for it too.

A canopy works well for simple backyard gatherings too. Even if you just want to simply relax, doing so under the shade of a canopy will keep you cool and protected. Pet canopies are great for the backyard too. Relax alongside your four legged friend without having to worry about a thing.
