Grommeted Panel (currently viewing)

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.

Precut Panel

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.

50% density will block out 50% of light. Constructed of high density polyethylene, the tough lock-stitch design of this knitted material resists rips, tears and fraying while reducing wind speed and heat build up in structure.

  • 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.

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.

Shade for avocado trees

Used for shade from mid day sun

As promised

Shade cloth is not a sexy subject, but I got what I paid for. The side cloth I purchased has now been lowered for winter, and served us well throughout the California summer. I expect to get several more seasons use out of it.
I can recommend this product.

Satisfied customer

Received in a timely manner. We’re using this product as a garden shade to protect tomato crop from harsh sunlight. It works very well. Satisfied with product and with this company.

Legacy Review
Escellent Product

I use the shade cloth to cover a 8 x 24 foot patio that I keep my plants on. I live in Tucson, AZ. The patio has full sun all day. This cloth has been perfect for my use. My plants get the summer rain and the cloth has held up to heavy winds. I'm currently building a porch. I plan to cover the porch with the same cloth. I would recommend this cloth to anyone.

Shade Cloth, 50% Black

The product is well made. The real heat hasn't started here in Tucson yet, so I can't really say how well it's going to work.
