Grommeted Panel

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.

Bulk (currently viewing)

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.

30% density will block out 30% 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.

  • 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.

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 for what we needed

Once we get everything put back together properly and get the shade cloth on the greenhouses. I am sure it will do its job perfectly. We have wanted to cut done the sun on the greenhouses for a while. It is much too hot even outside the greenhouse let alone inside the greenhouse in full sun.

Quick delivery

Product arrived much quicker than it said it would. I sewed it myself and it was easy to work with and seems very durable. Only time will tell. It is going to be a pond cover.

Legacy Review
Great Stuff

I think this shade cloth really saved my greenhouse. It was shipped exceptionally quick and I'm very satisfied with the results.

Legacy Review

Good product. 30% shade cloth drops the temp in my garden but still lets in plenty of light. Was easier to work with after sewing batten tape and installing grommets around the edges. If you can't do that yourself I would pay extra to have it done for you.

Legacy Review

Very sturdy. Perfect for covering our crops from blazing Fla. sun this summer. It arrived very fast also. Best price I could find.

Legacy Review
Great quality and value

I've ordered shade cloth of many densities from greenhousemegastore, and it's always of highest quality at an unbeatable price. I particularly like working with the 30% - 60% densities, as they are easy to tie on to frames and water flows through them easily. Customer service is also great - I had to set up a tax-exempt purchase order account, and the representatives were prompt and very courteous in doing the required paperwork.
