10 Years Pro rata against UV Degradation

How heavy is a roll?

The 1.83m wide x 30m weights approx. 8.2kgs and the 3.66m wide x 30m weights  approx. 16.4 kgs.

How do I cut the fabric?

We recommend using a shade cloth cutter. They are available on this website.

Will it fray if I cut it?

No. It is a knitted fabric and uses a lock stitch construction. The cut edge will be raw but it will not unravel.

Is it waterproof?

Domestic 70% shade cloth is not waterproof. If you need waterproof shade cloth we stock this product in 90% grade in Sandstone, Dark Green and Black, just browse for Waterproof Shadecloth.

Will the colour fade?

The fabric is very colour fast however over the longer term some slight fading can occur when the fabric has been constantly exposed to environments of high UVR.

What’s the difference between Commercial and Domestic 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 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 than the monofilament. Domestic shade cloth is designed to be spread over a framework, like a pergola, not tensioned out like a shade sail.

What’s the warranty?

10 Years Pro rata against UV Degradation.

I want to buy it for privacy. Will it completely block out my neighbours?

Shadecloth is designed to reduce the temperature underneath and is a knitted fabric, thus is porous. Accordingly, it will not provide a full visual block. 70% shade cloth is commonly used in the building industry to reduce visibility around building sites. It can still be clearly seen through and this product is not recommended for privacy screening. 

Note, due to the knitted construction of the fabric eyelets are not necessary as long as the fabric is attached at regular intervals with cable ties, butterfly clips, hog rings or other suitable methods.
