I know Arizona can really heat up but is 110+ degrees a spike in temperature or a steady temperature over many days?
If it's a spike then sarrs can take it (some pitchers might burn at the tips), just make sure to water them the day afterwards.
As for a steady temperature over many days, a shade cloth would be necessary and placing ice cubes into their water trays (to make sure their roots don't overheat) would be beneficial. I recomend you use a 30% light filtering greenhouse shade cloth like this one. www.amazon.com
I've used it for drosera (full sun ones like D. Capensis) and nepenthes so it should also work for sarrs.
If you make the right decision to prepare and aclimate your sarrs to the partial sunlight before summer, they should be prepared for the heat.
