80% Black Shade Cloth, Grommeted Panel
The edges of these panels are sewn with heavy-duty reinforcing tape. Brass grommets are installed on approx. 2' centers around the perimeter. Often includes a seam where two pieces of shade have been sewn together. Durable, easy to install with ropes, bungees or wire. Most durable solution for smaller areas where shade will be suspended between four points. Grommeted panels are sold in pre-cut sizes or can be ordered in any custom size.
A raw piece of shade fabric where edges of panel are not reinforced with any tape or grommets. Would not typically have a seam but may have a raw (cut) edge. Can be installed with wiggle wire, shade cloth clips or wooden lath. Precut Panels are sold in pre-cut sizes or can be ordered in any custom size.
Sold in factory widths by the linear foot. Would only rarely have a seam and sides typically include a factory finished (uncut) edge. Most cost effective solution for large quantities of shade fabric.

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.
80% black shade cloth w/ grommets has provided the best shade for our garden and the people in it. The cloth is sturdy and allows heat reduction (100*+) and airflow. Consider the plants that might be covered when deciding on the depth of shade. 80% is great for sitting outside. Our shade cloth is about 7' from the ground so when we use our sprinkler the cloth tends to "catch" the water and direct it right down again. Maybe more frequent but shorter sprinkling times and lighter watering strength. The cloth is durable and previous orders have lasted 10+ years. But they are not squirrel proof. Watch were you store them over winter. We were able to repair the damage.
I needed a 6' x 10' section of 80% to cover part of my east-facing dog run to give the fur-baby some respite from the summer sun, and this works perfectly! Love the finished off edges with grommets that made it so easy to install! If this one wears out, I'll be back for more - excellent quality! So glad I found them online :)
this is the (2) shade cloth for our business in three years ,well pleased with the first,held up in severe weather,no tears or holes,it is worth the money we spent for a Quality shade cloth, thanks L.B.S.
My purchase of 80% sun shade fabric exceeded my expectations! The quality of materials are exceptional and the overall construction was amazing. I was worried about not having grommets every foot die to the winds seen in my location. However, the sun shades construction and ability to stretch and flex has completely completely crushed all of my worries.I will be returning to purchase more items and replacements as needed without any hesitations. Shipping for my item was also very quick and item was well packaged!Thank You for a wonderful transaction and customer experience.
This was just what I needed and expected. I've used this before and was pleased the first time.
Would be 5 stars except we haven't had a chance to install it yet. High quality fabric and very well constructed. Prompt delivery! We're sure it's exactly what we needed for our project.
This was a replacement shade cloth for over our kennel runs. It exceeded my expectations! It is far superior to the shade cloths that we had in the past.
This is a superb product. I like the construction and the grommets placed every 2 feet. already in /over my garden and it works very well.
I would have given this a 5 except that I ordered 2-6'x10' 80% coverage pieces. The first one I opened was, IS, amazing!!! The grommets are placed perfect and everything is secure. The second one is OK but not nearly as nice. There is a seam down the center and there are fewer grommets!!! If your products are going to come without a standard of consistency, it should be noted BEFORE an order is placed!
Tremendous product and superior service. I use them as drop down curtains on a Trellis deck which has an overhead shade cloth but adding the side panels keeps the deck much cooler for the dogs.
