The Shade Shack is a portable beach tent that can easily be set up in a matter of minutes to provide shade and shelter from the sun’s harmful rays. The shade shack is designed for use on the beach, but the unique design makes it easy to use on grass areas as well.
This tent is designed to provide shelter from the sun as well as excellent privacy and shade for families on the beach. It is large enough for families to fit in altogether, but not so large that it becomes heavy and difficult to carry around. There are windows that can be closed for privacy for getting changed in or having a quiet nap.
Features of the Shade Shack
The Shade Shack features a simple pop up design which makes it easy and fast to assemble. The sides of the tents have pockets that can be filled up with sand to easily hold the tent down on the beach, even when it gets windy. There are also stakes available for those who want to use their tent in the grass and don’t want to fill the pockets up with sand or soil. The sand pockets and stakes can also be used together if necessary to keep the tent weighed down in extremely windy conditions.
The tent material is made of zinc coated polyester which provides 30+ ultra violet ray protection from the sun. Having 30+ UV protection means that more than 96% of harmful UV rays will be blocked by this tent. The Shade Shack only weighs 4.6 pounds which makes it easy for anyone to carry out to the beach, and at the end of the day all you have to do is fold it up.
This beach tent is a good size for adults and children, and it can easily fit two beach chairs underneath it. The side windows can be opened for extra breeze when it’s hot, or closed for extra privacy. DVD instructions are also included in the packaging to help explain how to open and refold this tent.
