Tape and Grommets are Included
Tape - Edges are reinforced with black tape.
Grommets - Brass grommets are provided every 2ft, starting with the corners.
Please contact a sales representative for special requests including custom grommet spacing or an unfinished edge at 1-888-281-9337.
Depending on the size ordered, your shade fabric may contain a factory seam.
Standard Widths - There are standard widths available for each shade cloth. Pricing is determined using those widths since a larger width cloth will most likely need to be cut down to accomodate your selection. You may find that increasing the width of your cloth doesn't change the price OR that it changes more than you would expect.
Minimum Shade Price - The minimum price of a piece of Custom Shade Cloth is $75, so that will be the cost of your shade until your selection has exceeded the minimum.
Greenhouse Megastore guarantees +/- 4" to your specified dimensions. Accuracy has only very rarely been a problem, but keep in mind these variances.
Specially cut and custom fabricated items including but not limited to polyethylene film, polycarbonate panels and shade cloth are not returnable. We will, however, exchange any defective items. Specially fabricated items that do not meet ordered specifications (within stated tolerances) will be replaced upon confirmation of discrepancy by Greenhouse Megastore or the manufacturer. Customer may be subject to additional shipping and handling charges if it is confirmed that returned pieces do indeed meet stated tolerances.
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.

The old shade cloth on our tunnel greenhouse "died" last summer, and with hot weather coming on we needed a new one custom made to fit. A call to Greenhouse Megastore got the order placed with custom dimensions and grommet spacing as we wished. Told that delivery would take 3 - 4 weeks, we were delighted when it arrived in just 2 weeks. Great product, great store!
I use this 90% to cover my car while participating in scentwork trials with my dog. I have their 70% cloths as well but the increasing temps this year caused me to up the protection. They are both great, the 90 a bit heavier weight. With so many products in short supply or unavailable GM made my custom cover and delivered in a short, very reasonable time. Quality is excellent
Well weve had it on for 2 weeks and its working great, it brought the temperature down, it was pretty easy to put on, took 2 of us and the shipping was really fast!
These shade cloth panels help knock a few degrees off the interior temp of my greenhouse. They are easy to install with the provided brass grommets. I used some small nylon rope to secure them. The alumanet has a good look to it. I ordered the 70% which still allows plenty of light to pass through. I would recommend these shade cloth panels to others.
I recently custom ordered the 70% tan shade cloth for my way-too-hot SoCal patio.
The finished product arrived so quickly - about one week ! - and is of excellent quality.
The Sales Rep I spoke with was so helpful, cooperative, and informative. He confirmed I had made the best choice for my patio, in terms of the 70 % sun reduction, the light tan color (which I much prefer over the glaring white) and the strength / longevity of this particular fabric (compared to the white one).
BTW, the fabric does have a lengthwise seam, but it is relatively unobtrusive and seems quite sturdy.
For others' benefit, I learned that the standard grommet placement is TWO grommets at each corner, one to the left and one to the right.
I special ordered only ONE grommet right at each corner, which worked perfectly for direct attachment to the 4 eye bolts we installed in the fascia wood just below my roof line around my patio.
Now my sunburned plants and I are SO MUCH HAPPIER out on the patio !
I bought a 48'x41' white shade cloth. Came quickly and packaged in such a way it was easy to put up. Took only 2 people about 2 hours to get it on the frame and get it clamped down. I highly recommend this product.
I was able to make contact with a great salesman, who gave me great advise. I ordered the shade screen and it showed up in a reasonable amount of time, ( 2 weeks) for a custom order. Product is easy to work with and so far seems very durable. I will be placing an order for a friends project very soon.
Ordered a 60 x 10 shade cloth that had a seam down the middle, I know the product comes in widths that are wider than 5 foot so why the seam. And of course they have a no return policy that doesnt allow you to return this item so I just spent $600.00 on a defective product that I cant use. I dont recommend this company. Thanks Richard Meeks
Size was as ordered. Only disappointment was: I was installing to a wooden overhead structure in carport and after searching with you and Amazon, I found that the tacking items were virtually non existent -had to shoot a bunch of staples into the fabric and hope it will last a couple winters
Shipping was quick. It was suggested I get the 40% Alumnum cloth for my vegetables. It is bright but gives shade. Plants are growing well. I am considering getting a larger cloth to put over my Koi pond but not sure how to install it, will have to give it more thought
