Deciding On Your Sun Shade Color

Deciding on a shade structure color for your venue is a huge decision for anyone considering the impact it will have on the final look of your business establishment or project.

To help you out we listed the TOP 3 things you should consider:

1. Desired Goal

First thing first, ask yourself what is it you want to achieve by using sun shades for your commercial building or business.

  • Are you wanting the shade structure to do more than just offer protection from the sun?

  • Do you want them to stand out as an architectural fabric design or blend in within the surrounding environment?

  • Do you want the shade fabric color to create an overall feel within your space?

2. UV Protection

If UV protection is important to you, make sure you check the protection factor of different shades and colors. Our team of experts will be able to help you make that determination.

Not all colors of sun shade sails provide the same UV protection as do other colors. The darker colored shade sails block out more UV rays than do lighter colors, making them perfect for locations like Arizona, verses a state in the Midwest.

3. Branding

Branding your awning, canopy or sun shade sail is a sure what to stand out! You can do this by incorporate your company's colors into your shades to further enhance your branding efforts or have your name or logo printed directly onto the fabric. You can be assured that your branded shade structures will be seen by those passing by and can create additional foot traffic to your business establishment.
