Beach season will be here soon and chances are you’re checking out portable shade options to keep you safe from the sun while having fun on the beach.
However, did you know that beach umbrellas, one of the most popular portable shades on the beach, can be responsible for tragic accidents and injuries?
Yes, though they may be rare, the fact is they can injure you and your loved ones.
Beach Umbrella Installation and Safety
This month, we’ll be talking about portable shades and since beach umbrella safety is key to a safe and fun summer season, here are some great videos on how to properly install a beach umbrella and how to maximize its safety:
Anchoring Your Beach Umbrella for Safety
Yes, while it is important to install the beach umbrella properly, it is even more important to keep it anchored. Last month, we partnered with the Noblo Umbrella Buddy to give one ezShade winner the chance to win a summer safety package from us.
The Noblo Umbrella Buddy is a simple yet effective way to keep your beach umbrella grounded and anchored firmly, preventing those unfortunate flyaway accidents.
Another option is the Beach Umbrella Sand Anchor, available on Amazon.
You can also check out Beach Pockets, another easy way to keep your beach umbrella anchored in the sand.
Boosting Beach Umbrella Sun Safety
Finally, you know that your beach umbrella doesn’t really give you complete protection from the sun. Adding the ezShade to it will not only help increase sun safety, it’ll also help secure the umbrella.
Summer should be a season for fun in the sun, cool lemonades and iced teas, splash fests and sunglasses. It shouldn’t have to involve trips to the ER after a day at the beach. Install your beach umbrella properly, anchor it firmly and make sure that it gives you complete sun protection to stay safe this season.
