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.
I ordered a custom size to fit my greenhouse. It shipped sooner than I expected. The quality is very good and it is easy to attach to the greenhouse. I'm very satisfied with my order.
This product is well made and works as intended. Aluminet keeps the greenhouse much cooler.
We really love how the Aluminet works in our greenhouse. We have 5 custom sized panels and it's really been amazing how much this has improved our greenhouse and plants. Temperatures stay more uniform, and no plants get fried by the sun. We have an all-glass greenhouse and we use the Aluminet panels on the inside. My only complaint is that the custom panels vary in how accurate the size and grommet placements are. We can only attach to our greenhouse in 2-foot increments and as much as the grommets are supposed to be 2-feet apart, they are mostly not. Fortunately it still worked for us. We also had one panel that was about 6-inches too long and one about 3-inches too short. For the most part they stretch and ultimately work, but be sure your e measurements are plus or minus about 6-inches. In any case we love it and it's really changed our greenhouse for the better---and the custom panels look very professional (very little slack or folding of the material.
Fantastic product for minimal insulation and sun filtering needs.
