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.

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.

  • 60 per cent Shade Cloth
    I purchased this shade cloth to protect some roses from the July sun in Tucson, AZ. Over the last several years, I've purchased several shade cloths from Greenhouse Megastore. I have them covering my open front and back porches. I even have one over my lemon and orange trees in the back yard. The cloth is strong and has held up great to the Arizona sun, wind, and monsoon rains. None of the grommets have even broken away from the cloth. The construction is great. The company itself has always been very easy to deal with. If needed, I would buy this or any product from this company again.
  • So glad I purchased this shade cloth.
    Very happy with this 60% shade cloth you recommended for my greenhouse located in the hot Arizona desert. It is light enough to withstand our heavy winds and extends my growing season when the sun heats up our desert region. Have recommended to friends and family.
  • Black Shade Cloth, Grommeted Panel
    A good product to block the hottest rays of the summer sun - protests the plants on my back porch from scalding, and keeps it a little cooler too.
  • Shade cloth is great quality
    The 60% shade cloth with grommets that we purchased from greenhouse megastore is great. It really cools down the greenhouse. We are growing basil underneath it right now in the Florida July sun. The quality is really great too. We've always had good luck with greenhouse Megastore. I would recommend them to anyone.
  • owner
    ........with 135+ orchids under Alabama sun.....this is perfect.....they are getting maximum light, but never burning.....very well made and fit perfect..will last for years....
  • Shade Cloth saving my Bushes
    Bought. Three 60% bound shade cloth sections with and bungee ball to attach it to metal posts in my backyard gardens. Love the shade cloth as it is shading my azaleas and other shade loving plants from hot sun. This cloth is easy to use and very effective in creating shade . This cloth has saved my garden plants from hot sun after I had to cut down a large pine tree that was leaning and used to shade my garden. Will plant new trees to create some shade in fall. So glad I found your website. Shade cloth is affordable and order was sent quickly.
  • 60% solar screen
    I ordered 6 pre-fab 60% solar screens to use as shade on a horse barn. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of materials and construction. The shades have been up a week and have not truly been tested against Oklahoma winds is the only reason for the 4 of 5 rating.
  • Product looks GREAT
    My shade cloth and ties arrived on-time and look to be of GREAT quality. I'm eager to try it on my balcony this summer to see how my shade loving plants do.
  • Shade Cloth, 60% Black - 6'xx12'
    Product is exactly as described and very well constructed. Couldn't be happier with the quality. Highly recommend.
  • huge seam down the middle
    8X10 shade cloth has a HUGE UGLY seam down the middle of it. I called customer service to have them replace but they said NO. There should not be a seam in such a small piece but they refused to fix it. Also purchased a 10x24 which has NO seam!
  • Shade cloth
    The shade cloth I 0rdered was very satisfactory. I would highly recommend this company...
  • Well made
    This is a well made shade cloth with lots of grommets for tie off points
  • great product
    Great product , fast delivery, good price, I'm happy.
  • patio shade cover
    I ordered a 16'x 16' 60% shade cover to fit in our corner back patio. It is a great product and worked out very well. I just wished I had order it in 70, or maybe 80% so the patio table would have been more shaded. But the plants LOVE it!
  • 6 x 8 ft 60% shade cloth
    I added these shade cloths to the end of the already installed overhead shade cloth. Looks good, no problem.
  • Tony
    First time ordering from this company and first time using a shadecloth so there's not a lot I can say about it now but the price seems reasonable to me, it came on time, and was as ordered. It appears to be of good quality but only will tell that for sure. So far I am pleased with the purchase and would buy from this company again.
  • Excellent Quality and durability
    Excellent Quality and durability
  • greenhouse cover
    Nicely made greenhouse cover
  • greenhouse sunscreen
    For those of us who build & use greenhouses...remember in the summer they can really heat up When installing cover it's better to think in terms of restricting too much, rather than too little lite. In the lower latitudes you may want to consider 80-90% shade, and if needed, pull the covering back. We installed 60% and we are above 47 degrees north and it's a little lite. Now, the shade cover. Excellent quality, easy to install when ordered with eyes (grommets) and very strong. Thanks for thinking of us (the gardners) and supplying high quality and workable / useable materials.
    Works better than I thought it would. Am able to leave many of my plants inside the greenhouse during this summer, which I thought would be entirely too hot for.
  • Good product
    I needed to cover pachysandra while waiting for a replacement shade tree to grow. Product is protecting plants and withstanding the very stormy spring.
  • Very well made
    This product is perfect for any greenhouse or shadehouse application. I have purchased 5 of the finished coverings and have no issues. The grommets are all still intact and the material has weathered very well over the past several years.
  • Excellently Made
    Excellent workmanship. I will be back!
  • Great Quality
    This was just what I needed to shade my house plants so that I could place them in the yard for the summer and not have the sun burn them.
  • Shading my Horse Paddock
    I purchased a 12 X 20 foot 90% black cloth for the top of my paddock and a 6 X 10 foot 60% black cloth for the west-facing side. The top was secured to taught wires on all sides via parachute chord zig-zagged thru the grommets. We supported it's weight in the middle with four taught wires equally spaced across, and one wire down the middle lengthwise. Tossed a couple parachute chords over the top to keep the wind from picking it up, as stiff afternoon gusts are common in my area. Can't just tie the grommets to posts or a solid wood frame, because the weight of the fabric puts too much stain on grommets and they WILL tear out - especially with any breeze! My paddock shade with it's floating secure system has been up for 3 months now and works great providing shade for my horse . The lighter , smaller side panel works perfectly to shade the moving afternoon sun while still letting the breeze come through and allowing my horse see through it. Totally pleased
  • Sun Screen
    The screen is what I need and great workmanship.
  • 60% shade cloth
    Great product, timely shipping. Very pleased and already ordered more product.
  • Shade cloth
    Seems to be of good quality.
  • None
    Excellent product! Priced right. Great service
  • Close Orchids
    The screen was just as I expected. It replaced an old screen that Had been in use for 25 plus years. Flexable to some extent, gromits every two feet for easy attachment. Suspended above the greenhouse on pvc and doing a great job. Thank you. Bud
  • Richard
    The fabric was not sewn to the border for about 15 inches. 60% black was not dark enough, but that is my fault. The shipping was fast. Overall I'm happy with the cloth, and would order again.
  • Thanks
    Super fast shipping and product was exactly as advertised. This was my first order. I will not hesitate to order from Greenhouse Megastore again.
  • Great Product
    Everything as describe, it cover my whole green house and keep the plant cool and it is very hot here in texas. thank you very much and the quality of the product is very nice it will last me for a long time. i order 2 one for back up ty again.
  • Great tarp
    Came well packaged ahead of schedule. Well built, best price I could find. It has removed a ton of heat as a pergola cover and reduced the intensity so we can eat outside at noon. Stretches a bit when you pull it taut- maybe 0.5inches per foot of length.Would definitely buy here again.
  • 60% shade cloth
    Screen product arrived quickly, quality seems fine, will be using either as single layer or folded layer to screen intense sunlight while we are camping at the ocean (meaning there is no shade there)
  • Shade cloth
    It's just what I needed my chickens needed shade. The quality of the shade cloth was excellent. The grommets were 1 foot apart which made it easier to install. Also it was fast shipping. Loved the product.
  • shade cloth
    Smooth transaction. Shade cloth exactly as described. Works great & provides much needed shade for the pergola area on our deck. Highly recommend!
  • 60% shade cloth
    Excellent quality. using it to shade my chickens. It was fast delivery. The grommets were 1 foot apart made it easy to tie it down.
  • Stock Shade Cloth-60% Black
    This product was reasonably priced and the quality is great! This was used to shade an outdoor area I have for my cats and it has worked perfectly!!! It keeps most of the sun out and allows air to flow through, keeping them much cooler.
  • Great product
    Item is exactly as described. We use it as shade cover over our son's small pool in backyard. It works great and was a reasonable price. We will be ordering a larger one for shade ove r our son's playset, too.
  • 60% Shadecloth
    Great product, fast shipping, reasonable price.
  • Kathi
    Arrived quickly and is of good quality. Thanks!
  • 6 X 10 & 10 X 20 Shade Clothes
    Exactly what we were looking for and do the job. Well constructed and no visible/obvious defects. All in all it was a satisfying experience shopping with Greenhouse.
  • Easy Shade
    Very easy to install. Seems well constructed and brought the temperature down, it does everything it is supposed to do. I would purchase shade cloth from them again.
  • 60% Shade Cloth
    I installed this shade cloth a few weeks ago over one of my gardens. It has extended the season for spinach, lettuce and peas. Recently, there were some strong windy days (30+ mph) and none of the grommets pulled out of the cloth
  • High Quality
    I'm using the shade cloth as a windbreak on an existing pole and rail fence. It is working very well and I expect it will hold up to our 55 mph winds quite well. We've already had high winds and our garden/yard is noticeably calmer.
  • Tom
    Much higher quality than expected for the price. There was a sewn seamed edge and grommets around every few feet. It was n't expected but I was delighted. Shipping was incredibly fast as well.
  • Just what we needed.
    Shopping for shade cloth and found it at greenhouse megastore. The right price for the right product. Well made. Quick delivery Very happy.
  • great product
    order shipped much earlier than expected. Just didn't order enough so I ordered more!
  • Great Shade!
    Cloth arrived quickly. It has strong binding all around. I was able to put on greenhouse easily and by myself. It dropped temputure 15 degrees within 30 minutes. I'm totally delighted with purchase.
  • excellent long term value
    last purchase of this material was eight years ago and until heavy snows last winter tore some of the panels they would have lasted another few years...these are excellent products that have required very little maintenance after being installed on a tubing structure over a fish pond and subjected to high winds and everything Wisconsin winters has thrown at them
  • Not what I expected
    I wanted some thing to cover my patio, to hot and in the sun. The 60% does not give you much shade and the heat is the same. Next time will order a higher % shade cover
  • Easy to install shade cloth
    The 60% shade cloth was a custom ordered size (20x66ft), but received in only 2 weeks! It was very easy to install with the grommets that were built into the shade cloth. Made a big difference in the temperature inside the green house. I will be better able to use the greenhouse this summer.
  • Better than I imagined
    I bought 6 of these for use over a patio area at several of our locations in Texas. These look like they were made with quality material and workmanship. I hope to buy some more in the future for other locations.' Thanks Bo
