Shade Cloth

Shade cloth is probably one of the least expensive and effective ways to help control the amount of heat gain in a greenhouse. Most shade cloths are attached to the outside of the greenhouse. They are typically placed over the roof and held down on each side by homeowner supplied ropes or bungee cords placed through the grommets in the sides of the shade cloth and fastened to the side of your greenhouse or ground stakes. A major concern is what to do about roof vents. There are two ways to handle this. The first one is to use a knitted shade cloth and cut around the roof vent openings. The knitted will not ravel. If you do this with alumitex or woven shade cloth you will need to do something to the cut edges so they will not fray. The easiest way we have found is to tighten the shade cloth down in the areas where there are no roof vents and leave your attachment loose in the areas where there are roof vents. We have found that we will need to readjust for a couple of days after we put the shade cloth on initially. You do not want any extra pressure on the roof vents with automatic openers where the shade cloth is holding them partially closed. This will potentially damage your automatic roof vent openers. Once it is adjusted properly you typically do not need to readjust.  The second option is to place the shade cloth inside the greenhouse. Alumitex is the material of choice for this option. You will need to look at your greenhouse when considering this option. Depending on the make and model there may be trusses or braces in the way. Usually there is a way to overcome these obstacles. Just take a look first before ordering your shade cloth.

We will sell shade cloths to fit any greenhouse purchased from us. If you do not see a size which you feel will work on your greenhouse from Advance Greenhouses please contact us. We do not offer custom shade cloths of any size. Although we have offered these in standard sizes they are still made to order. Please allow two weeks at least to receive your shade cloth.

Black Shade Cloth

shade cloth, taped and grommeted

Black color naturally resists the sun's harmful UV radiation for many years of satisfactory performance. We offer the black shade cloth in two options. The first is the polypropylene woven shade cloth, this must be taped as it will fray. The second option is the polyethylene knit shade cloth. This will not fray.

The third shade cloth we offer is Alumitex. A discussion of its properties is below. All of the shade cloths we offer are taped on all four sides with a 2 3/4" polypropylene binder and have grommets every 2' on all four sides. 

Alumitex Shade Cloth

aluminet shade cloth

Alumitex acts like a mirror as its unique aluminized threads reflect unwanted sunlight and harmful radiation heat from the greenhouse during summer, and preserve the heat inside the greenhouse in winter. When used on the inside of the greenhouse it reflects out the unwanted radiation and heat inside the greenhouse. Due to the superior reflectability and light weight of the Alumitex, it is the perfect cloth to cover the outside of a greenhouse instead of standard black shade cloth. In addition to providing all of the benefits of standard shade cloth, it does not absorb the heat. Its dual funtionability both shades and cools the greenhouse. Much lighter in weight than standard shade cloth, Alumitex is easy and quick to install. This must be taped, it will fray.

All of these shade cloths are taped all four sides and have grommets every 2' on all four sides. All pricing includes shipping to the Continental US

This item is currently in high demand. Our shade cloths are made as ordered. Please allow 2 - 3 weeks at this time from order to receipt of merchandise.
