You often hear about ultraviolet (UV) ray protection, especially during the warmer months. It is these rays, also known as UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B), that cause damage to the skin of humans and other creatures by penetrating and burning the outer layers and damaging other surfaces and structures.

Things like sunscreen help counteract these effects. Another great tool for combating UV rays is a protective cover, such as a heavy-duty tarp. There are many types of UV-resistant coverings on the market today. When you're looking to create shade and shields for your family, friends, clients, or the public, as well as valuable structures, equipment, and materials, you know you have options.
