SOLAWARE® simplifies sun safety by providing tools to promote UV awareness, education, and protection – including the SOLAWARE® Index, a conversion of the standard UV index into the number of minutes until skin damage can be expected under local conditions without protection.
WHAT WE DO
We work with communities (typically via public health, parks and rec, and local government officials) to implement sun safety awareness and education initiatives, right-sized to fit their needs. Our comprehensive sun safety portfolio includes the SOLAWARE® Index Display, educational signage, and skin protection solutions.

“Luke Bolinger, Community Partnerships and Special Projects Manager for the Town of Erie, shows residents our new SOLAWARE® signage at Thomas Reservoir. These signs serve as a gentle reminder to apply/reapply sunscreen and wear UV protective clothing when UV rays are at their peak. As well as provide a sun-safe educational piece to our outdoor users.”
– Erie Parks and Recreation, Erie, CO
“We have only had the unit for a short period of time, yet we are already receiving positive feedback from our pool patrons. Folks tell us they are applying sunscreen more often, moving into the shade and being more thoughtful about the time they are exposed to the sun. This has been a win for our pool users and our lifeguarding staff.”
– Kathy McGuire, Recreation Supervisor, Manchester, CT
“Having the SOLAWARE® display at the Town Pool Complex has benefited our patrons as it provides information on how to protect yourself from the sun while also measuring the UV index as well as indicating, in real-time, how much time it will take until someone experiences skin damage if sunscreen is not applied.”
– Peter Coleman, Assistant Director of Recreation, Lexington, MA
“The SOLAWARE® Display has raised our community awareness on the benefits of sunscreen. And the importance of applying sunscreen more than once a day. Its brilliant display is easy to read and provides a quick, easy resource for all to see that use our beach.”
– Ray Allen, Director of Parks and Recreation, Old Saybrook, CT
“The East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department is thrilled to…provide the three SOLAWARE® Units at our beaches and boardwalk. We want to remind and inform our patrons on the perils related to UV exposure and the importance of using sunscreen.”
– David Putnam, Director of Parks and Recreation, East Lyme, CT
Educating our communities on sun safety topics – such as the role that ultraviolet radiation plays in the development of skin cancer – is a critical first step towards helping citizens to understand the importance of protecting themselves from the sun’s UV rays. Our SOLAWARE® Sun Safety Program can help.
SOLAWARE® is the definitive source for local, on-the-spot UV awareness. By providing tools to promote UV awareness, education, and protection, SOLAWARE® is the only product dedicated to collaborating with communities to deploy a comprehensive sun safety solution.
