Welcome to ezShade
With two active boys in soccer, tennis and baseball, I have purchased just about every portable sun product there is on the market. Over the years I have noticed that portable umbrellas and canopies only provide minimal sun protection. Most do not block UVA or UVB rays, they provide only a limited shade area (the largest of which is when the sun is directly overhead) and they do not block the UV rays that are reflected off of the ground.
While I was researching shade structures, I discovered that not all shade is created equal. I, like most people, was not aware that up to 84% of UV rays found in direct sun reflect under your basic umbrella and canopy. That’s a difference of only 16% less UV exposure than standing in direct sun. Another study showed that up to 1/3 of cancer causing UV rays can reach your skin while you are sitting under an umbrella. You can actually get burned while you are sitting in the shade! The researchers of these studies concluded that shade structures with side-on walls or other side protection provide the greatest shelter from the sun’s UV rays.
After spending countless hours on playing fields chasing the shade it occurred to me that if I could not buy it, I would invent it. I knew that I had to design something that provided both UVA and UVB protection, was lightweight, colorful, easy to use, and very portable.
After years of research and development I am very excited to offer you the patented ezShade portable sun shield with the following great features:
• Blocks over 99% UVA/UVB rays
• Keeps you COOLER
• DOUBLES your SHADE
• INSTANTLY ATTACHES to any nylon/poly umbrella/canopy
• Matching TOTE
The ezShade is the only portable sun shield that helps to block those reflected UV rays. As a mom, and now a mom-inventor, I sincerely hope that the ezShade offers you many more shady options for your life in the sun.
