With the hottest months of the year not far away, many businesses are looking at how they can help protect their workers and keep their productivity high during the summer.

If your workers are exposed to the elements for long periods of time during the day, they can suffer from a range of different health problems, including sunburn, dehydration, overheating and stress. There may also be a possibility of them developing skin cancer, which could lead to long-term health problems for them, and extended periods of time off work.

How a fabric shelter can help?

A shelter can protect your workers and machinery from the sun and help keep them working at their maximum productivity. It can also stop machinery from overheating and breaking down, and reduces the chances of hot metal tools causing burns to operators. You invest a lot in your equipment and your workers, so make sure you are getting the most out of both by protecting them from extreme temperatures.

If your workers aren’t able to work to their maximum capacity during hot weather, this can affect your business profitability and reputation, as you may not be able to meet your deadlines. This is especially important if your workers are in a hot climate. Protecting your workers with a shelter is a win-win situation with numerous benefits for them, and for your organisation and clients as a whole.

How do fabric shelters keep out the heat?

Our shelters are temperature controlled and UV stabilised so they block out the harmful rays from the sun that can cause cancer. They are often significantly cooler than the outside temperature, in some cases by as much as 30%. This can help keep your workers more comfortable and reduce their risk of dehydration and fatigue.

The fabric covering used in our steel-framed, fabric-covered shelters is ideal for Australia’s hot weather conditions, as it reflects the UV rays and promotes natural ventilation. This can help keep workers at a comfortable temperature, and helps them avoid heat-related health problems.

Don’t risk your workers, and your business in high temperatures. Make sure both are protected by a suitable shelter, and you can enjoy higher levels of productivity, fewer health problems, and keep meeting your deadlines in temperatures that your competitors may not be able to work through.
