There’s nothing more relaxing and enjoyable than a day outside in summer, soaking up the rays and warmth until late in the twilight hours. Sunny summer days are simply the best!
When seeking a portable sun shelter for protection, look no further than our fun in the sun range. All Altegra sun shade products have been rated to provide UPF50+ Excellent shelter, an effective barrier from direct UV light. We’ve also integrated 360°, full-length attachments across our entire range for the easy connection of UPF50+ walls. The addition of walls helps decrease the exposure of indirect UV radiation, which is just as harmful as direct sunlight.
We’ve selected our sun shelter range to be easy to pack and store, provide thorough UV and rain protection, and include a solution for all budgets. Look great while enjoying yourself in the outdoors with an Altegra.
We’ve listed our portable shade gazebos by size, from the 2.4×2.4m gazebo to our lighter 3×4.5m gazebos. These are the more popular shade shelters due to their portability. A selection of colours is available for each UPF50+ Excellent canopy as shown under each product.
All Altegra gazebos have been certified as an excellent source of portable shade to use as shelter when enjoying the outdoors. The 100% waterproof fabric has been tested by Australia’s authority on sun protection, scoring the highest UPF50+ Excellent sun protection score.
A portable gazebo can be set up for highly effective UV protection when using UPF50+ Excellent rated fabric and a barrier is formed with the fabric between occupants and sunlight. To provide as close to 100% UV protection as possible, both direct and indirect UVR (Ultraviolet Radiation) must be shielded. A combination of a UPF50+ UV protection gazebo and attached walls to block out as much visible sky as possible is recommended.
Indirect UV radiation is radiation from the sun which is either reflected or scattered from surfaces such as sand or concrete, from the atmosphere, or from water droplets (for example, clouds). Although direct sunlight is the most noticeable, we’re exposed to as much indirect UV radiation throughout the day as we are direct radiation. An effective sun shade also shields from indirect UVR.
