Aluminet is a high-quality, reflective, metalized, HDPE, knitted screen material for use in greenhouse thermal screens, used as an alternative to black shade cloth. It is specially treated to prevent oxidation, and because the strands are twisted, Aluminet will diffuse light from many directions. It reduces greenhouse temperatures by 9-14%!

Our shade cloth comes standard with sewn black binding edges and grommets every 2 feet. Please visit ourCustom Shade Cloth Calculatorif you require a non-standard size or a change in the grommets and/or edges.
With pieces 100 square feet or larger, we advise providing support cables underneath to prevent sagging. Lightweight cable can be run from corner to corner, providing an X for the shade cloth to rest on. For pieces over 400 square feet, lightweight cables running end to end every 4 feet is advised.
All pieces have factory seams.
If it is important that grommets mirror each other, you mustcall in to orderand let us know.
