Why a shade cloth or sunshade?
Are you looking for a place in the shade, but is a parasol or a canopy not a good option? Then a shade cloth garden is! A shade cloth is an easy to handle alternative to create a shady spot. The flexibility of a shade cloth or sunshade is the biggest advantage. You can hang the cloth in no time and if the weather is bad for a longer period, you can take it down again in no time. A shadow cloth offers the same protection as a roofing or parasol, namely protection against the sun, wind, UV-radiation and rain.
What is the difference between a shade cloth and a sun cloth? Nothing, it's just a different name. Both variants provide shade, cooling and protection.
A shade cloth is a good solution for the garden as well as for the balcony. A shade cloth on the balcony is the perfect alternative to a parasol. You are not tied to a pole or a parasol base.
Shade cloths in all shapes and sizes?
As mentioned above, there are many types, shapes and sizes of Shade Cloths available. Triangular, square or rectangular shade cloths are available. The shape you should choose depends on the space where the cloth will be hung. Triangular Shade Cloth is often used in smaller spaces. This is the most popular shade cloth. The square Shade Cloth is mostly used for large terraces and spaces. Rectangular Shade Fabrics are often hung in a line around the house. This extends the house, as it were.
There are various sizes available within these shapes. The most popular square models are the 4x4 and 5x5 shade cloths. Rectangular Shade Cloths 3x4 and 5x4 are also popular. It all depends, of course, on the available space. Shade cloths are available in different colors: off-white, anthracite, black, olive green, terracotta and sand. Below, an overview of the different colors and sizes:

We offer complete mounting sets for square and triangular shade cloths, as well as all separate parts. For example, if you only need a tensioning hook.
Water penetrable or waterproof shade cloth?
We can divide the Shade Cloth in two categories: permeable cloth and waterproof cloth. The main difference lies in the density of the structure of the cloth. The structure of a waterproof shade cloth is less dense, but this means that the cloth is less stressed by wind gusts. The waterproof shade cloth is slightly transparent and offers protection from 90 to 95% against UV radiation. In addition, the fabric will stop some rain, but you will get wet under it during a good shower.
The waterproof shade cloth provides more protection from rain. When hanging up these cloths, make sure that they are slanted so that the water can flow off easily. The material is waterproof and has a dense structure. However, these cloths offer less protection against UV radiation, only 85%, and wind gusts have more impact on the rainproof sunshade.
Can a Shade Fabric be left outside all year round?
It is not wise to leave your shade cloth hanging outside all year round. We advise you to store the shade cloth inside during autumn and winter. During these periods, you will probably not need shade in the garden and the temperature will not be comfortable for sitting outside. Moreover, the fabric has to endure a lot of weather conditions during these months. In the event of strong gusts of wind or high winds, it is wise to bring the shade cloth inside anyway, summer or winter it doesn't matter.
