As grand format printing specialists, shade cloth printing is one of the formats we specialise in here at Mesh Direct. Shade cloth (also known in the industry as ‘scrim’) is an affordable fence signage and coverage option for those in the construction and development industries. Because of its practical, durable nature, it has a variety of uses across a range of different industries.
Created from a permeable substrate, shade cloth is perfect for the harsh (and often windy) Aussie climate. The perforated design allows wind loads to pass through the material, ensuring light and low risk loads on the attached structure.
Shade cloth also comes in full printed shade cloth, half printed and plain shade cloth options, so you can make it work for whatever your purpose is.
Speaking of purposes, let’s get to the top 3 uses for shade cloth printing…
By far the most common usage of shade cloth printing is for temporary fence signage and branding. Developers and event coordinators alike often make the most of the under-utilised advertising space shade cloth provides.
This is a fantastic way to create brand recognition for your company, and to advertise any upcoming developments or events.
Another common use for shade cloth printing, is for use as a device to block out the view of construction sites from the street. There’s nothing more unsightly than an untidy development site. Often the site is in disarray, with equipment strewn about the place as well as uncovered scaffolding as an eye sore.
Shade cloth, particularly printed shade cloth is a great option for containing the mess and disorganisation of a construction site, and ensuring that your development looks as professional as possible.
Finally, another of the top uses for shade cloth printing jobs is to contain dust, and for hygiene purposes. Often throughout the lifespan of a development, things like materials are cut and moved on site, and dust can accumulate. The best developers are concerned with the comfort and safety of the general public, and so often employ shade cloth to contain the dust from the site, and for other hygiene purposes.
Shade cloth has numerous other benefits as well. It’s cheap and accessible, making it perfect for one off projects. Practically anyone can use and install it, which means it’s great from just about everything from garden renovations to large scale developments.
