There are so many substrates to choose from for construction sites that sometimes it can be overwhelming to know which one is right for you. Banner mesh and vinyl hoardings are common signage options, as well as shade cloth which is a great budget-friendly option for construction sites. We break down the main reasons as to why you should use shade cloth for your construction site.

Great for branding

Our shade cloth can be custom printed to incorporate your logo, colours and any design that you desire so that you can make a statement for the duration of your construction project. It has a great print reproduction and is UV stabilised so as to ensure that your branding doesn't fade from the temperamental Australian climate.


Compared to vinyl hoardings, shade cloth is a great budget-friendly option for those looking to cover temporary fencing on a construction site. Printed shade cloth can provide a high print result to showcase your branding simply and effectively, whilst protecting any passerby from debris. We offer full and partial printed shade cloth to suit any budget.

Suitable for high wind areas

If your construction site is in a high wind area, or you want to avoid this worry during construction, then our shade cloth is the perfect option to calm your worries! It's a permeable substrate, which means that it allows wind to pass through easily and still maintain your signage. The last thing you need to worry about is the wind tipping your construction fencing over and damaging your signage, but with our shade cloth this is no longer a worry.

Complies with OH&S requirements

Our shade cloth is suitable for any construction site and meets all OH&S requirements. This means you can install your signage easily and let your branding stand out whilst your construction is underway.
