Item #: SCM-85
Shade cloth is a type of tarp that is used to block a percentage of the suns UV rays protecting the soil, plants, animals, people, or equipment underneath. Shade tarps are used for agricultural, industrial, and residential purposes. Shade cloths can be draped over structures like a green house, mounted to the top of something like a pergola, be suspended between a tube frame, or simply staked to the ground for weed or frost control.
All shade cloths from Lookout Mountain Tarp are custom built to match the specifications of your order. Regardless of the fabric type selected the tarp will feature a 2-ply hem that is reinforced using 2" wide heavy duty polypro webbing sometimes referred to as tape. This webbing is attached using two rows of our black 277 polyester bonded thread which features a 44 lbs breaking strength that is nearly double the industry standard. In the corners as well as about every 24" around the hem #2 brass locking spur grommets will be machine punched through the hem for extra strength.
This 9 ounce foamed vinyl coated polyester image tex mesh is our most popular shade cloth fabric for frost protection on sports field turf like baseball, football, golf putting greens, soccer, and tennis courts. The fabric's design blocks nearly all frost while allowing enough water, air, and UV to pass through for active turf growth during cooler weather. This fabric comes on a 72" roll that will be assembled using heat sealed seams and is available in black, green, and white. The vinyl coated polyester provides a rigid design with virtually no stretch making it ideal for projects where precise dimensions are required. As the Image Tex Mesh name implies this material has a matte finish that ink or dye will bond to far better than other our other shade cloth fabrics so if you plan to apply a stencil or graphic this is the fabric for you.
