Shade Cloth netting has been studied by horticulturists since 1992. Those early studies focused mainly on the effects on plants that were grown under shade cloths in both the field and in greenhouses.

Woven shade cloth is available in black, white, red, green, violet, decorative brown and Aluminet [a specialty metalized knit fabrication]. Shade cloths are available in different densities of the weave— from 22% to as much as 90% —dependent on the color of the cloth.

Making Construction Sites Safer for Everyone
  • Safety Netting
  • Debris
  • Construction

Construction sites are among the most dangerous of all workplaces. Data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reveals that one out of every five worker deaths in 2013 occurred in the construction industry.
