Shade Cloths for Greenhouses

Using a shade cloth for a greenhouse is one of the steps to keep the inside cooler, and to lessen the solar radiation that hits the plants indoors. Shade cloths can be installed over the top of the structure or inside like curtains.
They come in various thicknesses, providing different amounts of shade. It is also a general knowledge that dark colors absorb the sun’s heat while light colors reflect the sun’s warmth. Some shade cloths come with a system of grommets on the end, allowing you to design a system of lines and pulleys on the surfaces. They are easy to install and to remove.

  • Keeps greenhouses refreshing
  • The energy expenses in the greenhouse become inexpensive
