Benefits of Exterior Shading

Benefits of Exterior Shading

June 24, 2019

The long-awaited summer sunshine is slowly making its way back to Australia. While the Australian sun is amazing, you know how painful it can be if you get caught outdoors without shade. Exterior aluminium shading allows you to enjoy your outdoor spaces after reaching your sun limit. 


This blog will help you weigh the benefits if you haven’t already considered exterior shading. 


Let’s start…


1. Enjoy more time outdoors

Our aluminium shading offers protection all year round, whether hail, rain or sunshine. There will be no more limits on when you can enjoy your outdoor area,  invite guests or let the kids play. 


2. Protection

Thanks to Australia’s geographical location, we receive the highest levels of UVR. UV radiation causes 95% of melanomas, one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer. Even on the days when the sun is hiding or the temperature is cooler, UV radiation can cause incredible damage. A shaded area protects you and your family from harmful UV radiation. Exterior shading can also protect your outdoor furniture and equipment, which can become extremely hot in the sun and fade over time.


3. Aesthetic

Aside from protection, exterior aluminium shading can add to your aesthetics. We offer various shading structures that you can choose from, all of which have their own unique features and advantages.


4. Sustainability and efficiency 

Did you know that direct sun can generate the same heat as a single bar radiator over each square metre of a surface, but effective shading can block up to 90% of this heat?

Well-positioned exterior shading can block sunlight from windows and doorways, reducing the energy required to maintain comfortable temperatures indoors.


5. Eco-friendly

At Sunlite we pride ourselves on our low waste manufacturing methods and any production waste generated in construction is returned for recycling. Our louvres are created sustainably from Australian aluminium and are designed to keep rain, sun and heat outside. 


What are you waiting for now that you know the benefit of installing exterior shading?  We have many options you can choose from that can complement or even enhance your outdoor space design.
