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.
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% shade allows 30% light transmission. The 70% shading factor and maximum cooling ability of Aluminet makes this the perfect solution for shading greenhouses. The shade is designed especially for internal use to be spread permanently as a ceiling beneath greenhouse roofs, or to be installed as a moveable thermal screen. 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.
- 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.
5 year prorated warranty against UV degradation
Depending on the size ordered, your shade fabric may contain a factory seam.
We guarantee our stock shade pieces will be within +/- 4" of the published dimensions. Accuracy has only very rarely been a problem, but keep in mind these variances.

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.
Purchased 70% shade cloth. Size was exactly right, fit perfectly over my greenhouse. Highly recommend!
So far, it is everything it claims to be. Very light-weight, stronger than expected, and this shade cloth has definitely cut the heat in our greenhouse midday by at least 10 degrees, maybe more. It was easy to install. We draped it over our greenhouse covering the west side and roof entirely and used the grommets to tie it down. Must be careful about snagging material on corners, though, and it doesn't have any benefit to diminish cold at night.
I am very happy with my purchase of the Aluminet shade cloth. The 7x12 drapes my car well. I use it to shade the car when I am at a dog event to help keep my dogs and myself comfortable. I was surprised at what a good job the 70/30 net does at keeping the interior of the car cooler. My order came quickly. Thank you!
Works great, excellent workmanship, best deal. Thanks!
We used this huge tarp to shade our pop-up shelter while camping for 5 days in the high pasture lands of north-eastern California... we were downright comfortable in our man-made shade, despite temps in the high 90s! This high-quality tarp was worth every penny!
Aluminet is the BEST shade cloth. It reflects the sun's heat effectively and it breaths. The service from Greenhousemegastore was impeccable. Thank you folks!
I received the product in a timely manner boxed in excellent condition. The price point and shipping cost were reasonable. I use these shades when showing dogs outside to shade both my minivan and 12 x 12 pop up canopy. My dogs and I stay cool.
The quality for the price is the best deal out there covers my whole car in a sunny 70 degree day and my car was cool enough for my dog to hang in during a Scent Detection Trial. 2 PAWS UP!
We purchases a 8' x 7' section of Aluminet for sun shading of the rear of our 5th wheel. It proved extremely effective and plan to get two sections of 8' x 12' for the slide-outs
Received as ordered, fast shipping. Very happy with order and with GHMS.
