Visit our Custom Shade Clothpage to order a custom sized piece.

30% shade allows 70% light transmission. Aluminet is a special knitted screen made from metalized HDPE giving the fiber durability and longevity. These properties allow Aluminet to function like a mirror during summer months as its unique aluminized fibers reflect unwanted sunlight and heat from your greenhouse. These same properties also serve to retain valuable heat during the winter months.

  • Fabricated pieces include black reinforcing tape on all four sides. Reinforcing tape is a seat belt like material that provides extra durability along the edge of the piece and allows installation of grommets.
  • Fabricated sizes include a brass grommet in each corner of the piece and approximately every 2' apart around the entire perimeter. Grommets allow easy installation using rope or zip ties.
  • 5 year warranty against UV degradation

Factory Seams

Depending on the size ordered, your shade fabric may contain a factory seam.

Hanging Instructions

When hanging shade cloth pieces larger than 100 sq. ft., you may need extra center support to prevent the cloth from sagging in the middle. One easy way to do this is by running lightweight cable from corner to opposite corner, forming an X pattern that the cloth can rest on. For pieces larger than 400 sq. ft., you may need cables running end to end every 4' or so.

    This product is well made and works as intended. Aluminet keeps the greenhouse much cooler.
  • 30% Aluminet Custom Panels
    We really love how the Aluminet works in our greenhouse. We have 5 custom sized panels and it's really been amazing how much this has improved our greenhouse and plants. Temperatures stay more uniform, and no plants get fried by the sun. We have an all-glass greenhouse and we use the Aluminet panels on the inside. My only complaint is that the custom panels vary in how accurate the size and grommet placements are. We can only attach to our greenhouse in 2-foot increments and as much as the grommets are supposed to be 2-feet apart, they are mostly not. Fortunately it still worked for us. We also had one panel that was about 6-inches too long and one about 3-inches too short. For the most part they stretch and ultimately work, but be sure your e measurements are plus or minus about 6-inches. In any case we love it and it's really changed our greenhouse for the better---and the custom panels look very professional (very little slack or folding of the material.
