Shade Sail Fabrics: Shade Cloth
Shade sail cloth is a soft, light fabric made from high-density polyethylene, which absorbs light, fluids and wind. It is a knitted fabric which allows elasticity and thickness.
Lightweight construction allows easy handling, installation and removal. Shade cloth is very good at absorbing heat, keeping the covered area cool and well-ventilated. Its affordable cost makes shade cloth a popular choice for swimming pools, car parks and playgrounds.
Most shade cloths can offer 85-98% UV protection, and often come with UV stabilizers that increase the protection by making them resistant to UV degradation. This type of shade sail usually lasts 10+ years.
