Description

70% shade allows 30% light transmission. The 70% shading factor and maximum cooling ability of Aluminet makes this the perfect solution for shading both greenhouses and all types of pet or animal enclosures. 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.

  • Bulk shade cloth has an unfinished edge that does not include reinforcing tape or grommets.
  • Unlike woven shade cloth, the tough, lockstitch construction of our knitted material will prevent unfinished edges from unraveling.
  • Bulk shade cloth can be easily cut with a sharp pair of scissors to any desired size. 
  • Bulk pieces can be attached using snap grommets, zip ties or other fastening methods.
  • 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.

  • Perfect cover
    This cover was perfect for our Rion greenhouse. Fast shipping and good quality
  • effective cooling
    In our heat the material made a significant difference compared to traditional shade cloth without the aluminized threads!!
  • great shade cloth
    This shade cloth is easy to work with. I sew a casing along the edge and put in a pvc pipe. Then the stress from the wind is evenly distributed.It lasts 10 years on my greenhouse roof used 9 months of the year. Be sure you buy the correct density. 60% is best for orchids.
  • cooler greenhouse
    Easy to attach to greenhouse inner walls and roof using twist attachments. It lowered the internal temperature by 10-15 degrees. Product is very durable and easy to cut to dimensions required
  • Shade cloth purchase
    Product and service was great. I'll be ordering again soon!
  • Works great for a shade structure
    Used this to create the shade in a shade structure and it worked great. Provides plenty of shade, but lets the wind through so it doesn't bring down your structure. Works great with the plastic grommets along with ball bungies and rope to attach to the PVC pipe skeleton.
  • Tips for Usage
    I live in the desert so these are priceless - winter and summer. I've been using them for 5 years now - it is true that grommets of any kind- even the shark bites will not work on the aluminet. I started using spring clamps instead and have not had one tear from wind related problems - even in 50mph winds (we live on a mesa in the high desert). They will tear if you place them over something sharp - such as the end of a pipe on a pipe structure; when billowing in the wind. Advantages of this product far out-way the disadvantages.
  • Aluminet 70%
    The shade cloth cuts sun as well as I had hoped, disperses it nicely. But despite sewing rather large (1'x1')and sturdy gussets at each corner and then at midpoints, the cloth tore out under moderate pressure. 30 mph winds were just too much for it. Might be really nice for mild weather, but I wouldn't consider buying this again.
