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 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 (Universal) shade cloth is designed to be spread over a framework, like a pergola, not tensioned out like a shade sail. Note, Ironstone Commercial 80% shade cloth is 306gsm whereas, Universal 90% shade cloth is 200gsm.
