How Harmful Is Skin Cancer?


Help Stratco and Cancer Council raise vital funds for Australians impacted by cancer this Stratco National Patio Day.

Skin cancer accounts for the largest number of cancers diagnosed in Australia each year with more than 2,000 Australians losing their life to melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every year.

This year Stratco National Patio Day is on Saturday 5 December. Celebrate the start of summer by helping Stratco and Cancer Council raise vital funds for those impacted by cancer. Help us educate Australians on the importance of sun protection whenever the UV is 3 and above. 

Follow our 5 easy steps to protect yourself and others from the sun:

  1. Use the SunSmart UV indicator to check the UV levels—if it’s 3 and above, you need to make sure you protect your skin. Temperature is not a good indicator if sun protection is needed which is why checking the UV levels is so important!
  2. Stay under the shade when hosting activities to reduce your UV exposure.
  3. Protect your skin by wearing sun protective clothing, wraparound sunglasses and a broad brimmed hat to stop your skin from being exposed to the sun.
  4. Continue to apply sunscreen every two hours during your time spent outside.
  5. Avoid being outside during the peak UV level times of the day.

Stratco Patios have been providing vital shade to families all over Australia for decades so they can enjoy the Australian summer safely with protection from the sun. Stratco will be donating a minimum of $50 for every patio sold until November 30*. Purchase your Stratco Patio now and have it in time for National Patio Day.
