Patent Issued on ezShade — the Only Portable Shade Curtain That Blocks Over 99% Cancer Causing UVA/UVB Rays and Instantly Attaches to Portable Umbrellas and Canopies
SAN MARINO, Calif., Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Solar Eclipz, a Los Angeles, CA-based woman-owned small business announced today that the USPTO issued a patent on the ezShade which blocks over 99% of cancer causing UVA and UVB rays and instantly attaches to any portable umbrella or canopy.
Like many people, Linda Varga was concerned about the sun exposure she and her family were getting while her family was participating in sporting events. “I would spend most of my time repositioning our umbrella and chasing the shade rather than watching my sons’ games,” said mom inventor Linda Varga. “Your traditional portable umbrella and canopy only block direct UV rays. In addition, as the sun moves so does your shade.”
Think you are safe from harmful UV rays while you are sitting in the shade? Think again….When UV rays enter the atmosphere they scatter and reflect off of things around you such as sand, water and concrete. Research has shown that up to 1/3 of reflected cancer causing UV rays reach your skin while you are sitting in the shade. In fact, you can actually get burned while you are sitting in the shade.
Linda has come up with a clever portable sun shield that helps to block reflected UV rays and instantly attaches to any portable umbrella or canopy. “By adding a vertical panel to your umbrella, you are able to block the reflected UV rays that your umbrella or canopy alone cannot.” The ezShade attaches in seconds with the included peel and stick strips. The ezShade provides critical protection for a product weighing less than 9 ounces. “I designed the bottom pocket with hook and loop fasteners so that the ezShade could be easily adjusted to the height of your umbrella or canopy. Once you adjust the pocket, you fill the pocket with sand, water bottles or towels to keep your ezShade from blowing in the wind and to stabilize your umbrella or canopy.” The ezShade can be used anywhere sun protection is needed, such as the beach, park, sporting events, school, swap meets, open-air markets, etc.
The ezShade is made from a special lightweight UPF 50+ fabric that blocks over 99% of UVA and UVB rays. The ezShade not only blocks UV rays but keeps you cooler and doubles your shade all day long. Need to change out of your wet bathing suit at the beach? No problem, because you can add multiple ezShade panels to your umbrella or canopy to create a portable privacy enclosure. The ezShade is endorsed by the Melanoma International Foundation.
The US Patent and Trademark office issued Linda a patent on the ezShade just 2 months ago. The ezShade is currently being sold at Toys R Us, BuyBuyBaby, Camping World, Cabela’s, and Sports Chalet.
