Toray has developed the Summer Shield, a new fabric that is said to block 100 percent of light and more than 99 percent of harmful ultraviolet rays. According to the company, the temperature under canopy shelters incorporating the new fabric is 4°C to 7°C lower than with conventional fabrics. The Summer Shield contains both a white film, to reflect ultraviolet light, and a black film that blocks visible and infrared light.
