Budget friendly

These options will cater for any budget and give you the great signage you're looking for. If you're after plain shade cloth today, then check out our online shop.

Suitable for high wind areas

Is your development in a high wind zone? Well shade cloth is a permeable substrate that allows large wind loads to pass through the material with ease. This enables light and low risk loads on the structure it is attached to. Better yet, if you would like your shade cloth printed, then your advertising will still print in great quality for all to see!

Blocks out dust and construction scaffolding

Not only can shade cloth trap the dust from your construction site, depending on the density you choose it can hide the construction scaffolding fairly well. For OH&S reasons, scrim is great for protecting not only construction workers but also the general public from dust and debris by trapping it inside the material. An added bonus is with our printed scrim, clever and bold branding can detract the eye from the construction site behind for the duration of your project!
