    White Monofilament Shade Cloth

    Protect your plants and structures with this UV-treated, white shade cloth available in 6', 12, 20', 32', and 42' widths. This 30 percent premium knitted shade cloth is popular in areas that experience high heat because it resists breaking down and losing flexibility even under the most extreme rays. 


    • UV treated to prevent degradation
    • 8-year warranty & 16-Year Life Expectancy
    • Engineered to not unravel when cut
    • 30% Shade (70% Light Transmittance)
    • White color helps reflect more light keeping structure cooler
    • Twice the density of economy tape shade cloth for superior strength
    • Does not include clips or spring (wiggle) wire
    • Will not unravel when cut.

    What Size of Shade Cloth Should I buy?

    You will want the cloth to cover from hip to hip on your hoop house or cover loosely over the desired area that needs protection. Install clips to secure the shade cloth every 24-36". Shade cloth can also be installed using lock channel and spring wire. Check out this video tutorial on how to add shade cloth to a high tunnel greenhouse.

    Just ok?

    I am above the 40th parallel and so purchased the 30% shade cloth but it has done little to nothing for helping keep our greenhouse from jumping up over 85 degrees despite windows open windows on a 37/40 degree day. Fried some of our seedlings. I reached out but was only given the explanation the cloth is meant to lessen the harshness of the rays - yet it still fried some of our crop. Seems very expensive for what it is. I’m not sure I would purchase from them again. Be sure to consider your specific circumstances before ordering and don’t just trust the recommendations.

    Love this shade cloth

    Excellent, does not unravel when cut. Allows the wind to pass through without ripping it off of the shade structure. Really like the brightness of the white while working under the shade cover. Great product. Buying more now ;)

    Great product!

    Shadecloth is good quality. I also got the clips and they support the shadecloth well. The 30% let in a bit too much light so I doubled it over and it provides enough shade for plant starts. I’d probably get the 40% next time to do a single layer. Either way, it’s good quality material. Would purchase again!
