Types of shade cloth

Shading solutions are as good as the materials used for making them. Therefore, shade cloth plays a significant role in determining the effectiveness and durability of a sail shade. It helps when a buyer is aware of different types of shade cloth while buying the product.

Types of fabric used for making shade sails

Domestic shade cloth

This type of fabric has tape filler weaved with the threads. These products are also described as knitted HDPE Mono/Tape. They are effective in creating safe shade by preventing UV rays to pass through their membranes. The shading solutions are available in different levels of UV protection ranging from 30% to 95%.The shading structure gets its name from the facts that they are made for installing at residential facilities. They are not suitable for setting up at larger commercial facilities.

Commercial shade cloth

These shading solutions are used at commercial facilities. They are usually made of monofilament knitted HDPE and there is no tape filler in the fabric. So the threads of the fabric are densely weaved. This is the reason these shade clothes are heavier and stronger than the domestic types. They are also more effective in blocking rainwater and UV rays. In Aliso Viejo, these shade sails are widely available.
