Beach Goers at Lido Key Are Enjoying Shade This Summer

Temperatures are rising, but beach goers at Lido Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida don’t mind. They now have a new refuge from the sun and heat at the historic Lido Beach Concession Building where a beautiful new shade sail structure has been added for the enjoyment of all.

Designed to maximize the amount of shade given in the concession’s courtyard, multiple fabric shade sails provide an oasis of comfort for patrons enjoying the beach and concession area. The brilliant blue shade panels block up to 96 percent of the UV rays and lower temperatures underneath by up to 20 degrees. That’s a difference you can feel!

This July, communities across the country will recognize National Parks & Recreation Month, which is sponsored by the National Recreation & Parks Association. Park enhancements such as Apollo Sunguard’s shade structures help improve the experience at public parks and beaches.

Public beaches across the country have installed Apollo Sunguard’s shade structures to provide sun seekers a shady, cooler spot to escape UV rays. Governments enjoy the low maintenance features and the assurance of a strong manufacturer warranty.

Apollo Sunguard Shade Cloth® is known for its great strength, vibrant colors and durability. The company uses a high-density polyethylene fabric (HDPE) with ultraviolet (UV) additives. The fabric has been tested by an independent laboratory and a large selection of colors meet a minimum of 93 percent UV Block as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). The breathable fabric allows for air flow and drops the temperature up to 20 degrees.

Beach maintenance staff enjoy Apollo Sunguard’s uniquely designed quick release system so that the cover can be easily removed when necessary. No special tools are required. Staff can loosen the turnbuckles or u-clamps with a standard adjustable wrench and they are done. This is the easiest and most practical release system in the shade structure industry.

Apollo Sunguard offers the shade industry’s strongest warranty – 15 years on fabric and 20 years on steel. The durable shade structures will provide years of fun and safety for your community. Apollo Sunguard also offers several purchasing vehicles to make it easier for local governments.
