Selecting Shade Cloth
Shade cloth is woven and comes in different weaves which offer more or less openess. The more open the weave, the more you can see out, but you lose control of glare and heat. The Darker the fabric the more you can see but it reduces heat control. We recommend Mecho Series 1300 which at 5% openess is the perfect combination for view and heat/glare control.
