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.

70% density will block out 70% 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.

Great quality!

This was exactly what I ordered as far as size and sun rating. I had real concerns about how it would hold up to the constant wind but I am very pleased with it! The grommets have really held up.

Covers aboved ground Swimming pool

Bought several years ago as to use as a shade tarp over an above ground (inflatable ring) swimming pool. It keeps the water very cool and has prevented my children from getting sunburned. It has also reduced the sun damage to the pool. We use it only during the summer and put it away with the pool. We have been VERY VERY PLEASED with this product.

Shade cloth

Love ordering from your company! I got my shade promptly and was able to drop the temperature in my hoophouse almost 15 degrees so my plant did not FRY! I will continue to order my supplies from your site Thanks MDay

Great product

Quick ship but ordered 70 shade cloth and received 40 so had to ship back in the meantime the 79 was shipped. Quality is great. Used on arbor.

Legacy Review

Order shipment was prompt and reliable. Shade cloth with grommets difficult to find in my area. Will be used over natural fishpond and orchids. Thank you.

Legacy Review

Happy with 79% black shade cloth for protecting my truck from the sun. Was going to get 90%, however, it would be gone now from the heavy winds received recently in Tucson. The 70% held up great, keeps my truck cool and my structure is still standing.

Shade cloth

The shade cloth I purchased from you was exactly what I ordered. I was very happy to receive it so fast. I got it the third day after I ordered it. My local Home Depot and Lowes didn't have anything close to the 12' x 20' size that I needed, and I would have had to more or less make my own with their material. Thanks

Shade Tree

I ordered your 70% shade cloth for my screened in porch. Now it's like setting under a shade tree. We are enjoying our porch much more now.
