Actually, the slides will stay cooler. The slide topper keeps the sun off the top of your slide. It also creates an air gap between the slide and the topper, providing some (if minimal) insulation.
We didn't get slide toppers right away on ours. We had to carry a broom and ladder to sweep off the slides every time we brought them in (sticks, leaves, water, critters, etc.). With the toppers, we no longer need to do that. Pull them in and go.
