Anyone who’s spent a few minutes in an idle car in the summer knows that shade alone isn’t enough to cool an area. Even if the sun isn’t shining directly into the car, the heat still gets trapped inside and it can become considerably hotter than it is outside. The same thing can happen if you don’t choose the right shade material. You need good air flow for a cool environment. Warm air rises, but if it is trapped by a material that is not breathable, it is forced to linger.
Our shade fabric is knit in a fashion that is designed for strength, stretch, and breathability. This means that hot air is free to pass through it as it rises, leaving the air 10-15 degrees cooler underneath. At the same time, we don’t compromise on UVR protection. We understand that shade is more than just staying cool, and our aim is to provide comfort while shielding you from the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. All of our colors provide between 91% and 99% UVR blockage. For more fabric information, check out our standard fabric page and fabric spec sheet.
Our shade products range from the classic roman shades and simple shade panels to the more modern and stylish shade sails shown above. They are versatile in their applications, and extremely customizable, but one thing that never varies is the shade cloth’s ability to shield the heat and UVR of the sun, while maintaining breathability. This makes for comfortable and safe outdoor living spaces. Every time.
