FLAT ROOF SHADEHOUSE
Many crops can benefit from shading and for some it’s essential. Redpath import and distribute a range of high quality shade cloth fabrics for use in horticulture, animal shelters and for the home garden. A commercial grade monofilament and or combined tape yarn is used with UV stabilisation properties to make it well suited to New Zealand and Australian conditions.
A range of textile shading grades and colour’s are offered 30%, 50% or 70%
Widths vary dependent on the grade and include 1m, 2m, 4m and 6m. Rolls are 50m long in standard length, – Or you can purchase a ‘cut length’ of up to 35m of any type if you wish. Minimum length is 6m, and in increments of 2m. (see the ‘full roll’ and ‘cut length’ options in the shopping cart below)
The 2m, 4m and 6m sized rolls are folded in half for ease of shipping.
Our customers tell us that our UV stabilised Shadecloth last up to 10 years or more. Redpath shadecloth is a trusted brand and is used nationwide by farmers, horticulturists, nurseries, councils and government departments.
The shade factor % stated is a ‘nominal %’ – This is because shading factors will vary and are dependent on the design of the shadehouse, the aspect of the shadehouse, the surrounding landscape, the cleanliness of the shadecloth Etc. The ‘GSM’ or ‘grams per square metre’ is also nominal as this weight is an average weight across the full roll and can vary due to the yarn manufacturing knitting process.
Always order a slightly wider and longer length of cloth than your structure measures, – this is so that you have enough shadecloth leftover to secure the cloth to whatever style or design of structure your are fitting it too.
Select the shading weight % (gsm) of the shadecloth that you or your consultant best thinks suits your crop and location from the below options (if unsure we can post you a small sample upon request)
