Shade Cloth / Fabric by Cut Linear Yard, Roll or Custom
Knitted Mesh HDPE Coolaroo or Commercial 95 Shade Cloth Helps protects you from the Sun.
Shade Cloth is an outdoor fabric shade solution to create cover where you want protection from the sun, or to provide some privacy and to reduce wind. We've narrowed our selection of this type of fabric down to these choices:
Coolaroo Shade Cloth
Coolaroo is a UV stabilized High-density polyethylene (HDPE) knitted mesh fabric (~240-280gsm) that blocks the sun's dangerous UV rays while it still "breath" to circulate the air which keeps the environment underneath much cooler. Coolaroo fabric is heat processed that makes the material color fast, resists rot, mildew, or mold and will maintain flexibility and strength even when exposed to the sun for long periods of time. It is available in pre-packaged rolls only.
Coolaroo Shade fabrics come with a 15 year warranty that protects against UV degradation, rot, mold, mildew and manufacturing defects in material.
Commercial 95 Shade Cloth
This is similar to Coolaroo but the threading is thicker and it weighs in at ~340gsm and blocks up 98% of the ultra violet rays. Specifically designed to withstand more wind and weather the elements better. Commercial 95 shade fabric is available in whole rolls, cut linear yards off the roll, or we can custom make a finished shade panel in most any size you need, with edges that are hemmed only, with reinforced grommets, rod pocket sleeves and much more.
Commercial 95 Shade cloth fabrics come with a 15 year warranty that protects against UV degradation, rot, mold, mildew and manufacturing defects in material.
Differences Between Coolaroo & Commercial 95 Shade Cloth
Sunbrella Outdoor Fabric for Shading
100% solution dyed acrylic. Solution dyed basically means that the fibers that the fabric is made from, are dyed in a color solution before they are woven and not printed on after the fabric base cloth is made. This is the thicker Awning / Marine Grade fabric found on boats and nearly every major hotel awning. It is long lasting, fade resistant and near waterproof. Only available as a custom shade panel thru us.
Sunbrell fabrics come with a 10 year warranty that protects against UV degradation, rot, mold, mildew and manufacturing defects in material.
These mesh shade fabrics can be easily attached to any wooden structure in many ways including timber fastners, screws/washers, 1" staples, etc. The HDPE mesh fabrics use a lock-stitch knitted construction that stops tearing or fraying when the material is cut. The material itself is waterproof, but the fabric is a knitted mesh and will allow water through it when raining.
