Adding shade is the easiest way to cool any structure. In a greenhouse, shade cloth can significantly lower your summer cooling costs by increasing the efficiency of your existing cooling system. The Pre-Cut Knit Shade Cloth Fabrics can be easily installed in or over your greenhouse structure, suspended over your lawn or garden area, or installed over your patio or pergola.
The Pre-Cut Knitted Shade Cloth is made from 100% UV stabilized polyethylene. Its unique lock stitch, unfinished edge construction allows customers the ability to cut the fabric with scissors without further unraveling.
Clip-It Shade Cloth Clips recommended for use. Does not require factory installed grommets for installation.

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.
