Redpath Shadecloth + Butterfly retaining clips
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, Agriculture, Animal shelters, Commercial Nurseries, 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 with shading factors in the range of 25/30% or 45/50%
Widths vary dependent on the grade and include 0.97, 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. Increments of 1m or 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. You can use the ” butterfly” design shade clips below to secure the cloth to your wire or ask Redpath for a price to hem in a pocket along the sides of the cloth for you to thread a wire through.
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. The Lighter grade cloth is offered in both Black only or a Green/Black mix.
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 you 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)
Redpath also manufacture and sell complete steel framed shadehouse kitset buildings which use these shadecloths – See link page HERE|

Use four and five clips per meter along the edge of the cloth being held (for windy sites increase the amount). You can purchase in bags of 50 ,100, 200, 500, 1000 or cartons of 2000.
Physical size of the clip when opened out is 105mm x 38mm. (When closed 55mm deep x 38mm wide) The clips have a total of 10 locator locking pins and include a ribbed rear hinge.
