Waterproof shade cloth has many uses around the home and in commercial situations. It is a 90% grade shade fabric which has been treated with a UV stabilised resin to form a waterproof barrier. It can be used to create a waterproof layer in many situations including pergolas, vertical blinds and outdoor areas.

Waterproof shadecloth is avaiable in our heavy 90% grade shade. Unlike normal shadecloth, the waterproof layer creates a barrier to rain preventing it from penetrating and keeping everthing dry underneath.

Waterproof shade cloth has many uses around the home and in commercial situations. It is a 90% grade shade fabric which has been treated with a UV stabilised resin to form a waterproof barrier. It can be used to create a waterproof layer in many situations including pergolas, vertical blinds and outdoor areas. It is currently only available in our Extra heavy grade of 90%.


Shadecloth is designed to reduce the temperature underneath. If the fabric becomes stretched, for example if water pools, the fabric will stretch and the plastic resin coating will tear.  Accordingly, Waterproof Shade Cloth must NOT be used in any horizontal application as it will pond and the weight of the water could cause damage.  It may only be used where a slope is at least 20º and must be tensioned sufficiently to prevent holding water. Waterproof Domestic Plus is not designed for tension applications such as shade sails or for blocking strong winds.

What is waterproof shade cloth?

Waterproof shade cloth is simply a normal shade cloth that has been treated with a UV stabilised resin coating to create a waterproof layer. 


How is domestic shade cloth different from commercial shade cloth?

Domestic shade cloth is made with a tape filler to increase its opacity. This tape filler is knitted into the fabric between the strands of monofilament. Think of monofilament as being like very fine fishing line. When it is knitted together it forms a fabric, in this case, shade cloth.

The difference between domestic and commercial shade cloth is that commercial shade cloth is 100% monofilament (knitted fishing line). It has no tape filler. This makes commercial shade cloth very strong and suitable for use under tension. Domestic shade cloth is not suitable for high tension applications such as shade sails because the tape filler stretches at a different rate to the monofilament. Domestic shade cloth is designed to be spread over a frame work, like a pergola, not tensioned out like a shade sail.


If I cut it, will it come unravelled?

No. The shade cloth we supply is knitted not woven. Knitted shade cloth is knitted on special lock-stich machines. If you cut the shade cloth you will get a raw edge but it will not fray or unravel.


How do I install it?

Refer to the Technical Details document under Tech Specs. Note: waterproof shade cloth must be installed with a fall otherwise it can catch water and pool. The plastic or resin coating should be installed facing downwards. If you puncture the fabric during installation, it will leak. To rectify this, we recommend coating the punctured area with an outdoor UV stabilised Silicone product. 


How long will it last?

It’s warranted for 2 Years but correctly installed it should last many more years than this.


What colours does it come in?

Green and Sandstone.


Can I join it?

Yes, refer to the Technical Details.pdf under the Brochures Tab.


How long until you can ship me a roll?
