Greenhouse Shade Covers
Woven shade cloth is constructed from woven polypropylene. It is ideal for use on greenhouses and is typically 30% heavier than knitted polyethylene shade cloth. The benefit of it is that it is has a longer lifespan of about 10-12 years. The drawback is that it will unravel if it is cut or a puncture occurs unlike knitted shade cloth and its uses are not as versatile as knitted shade cloth.
Knitted polyethylene shade cloth is far more versatile with hundreds of uses including greenhouse cover, wind break, deer and bird fencing, hail protection, porches and patio shade. It is available in multiple colors and it typically lasts from 7-10 years.
