Shadetec 320® is a commercial grade shade cloth fabric manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) monofilament and tape filament. All filament (or yarn) is lockstitch knitted together providing a very high strength fabric which is then heat set, for dimensional stability and consistency. 

Each of the 14 colours in the range consists of single colour filaments, which provides consistent colour tone and texture throughout the sail. Shadetec 320® not only offers a very high level of UV protection with 91% – 95% block, but is made from UV stabilised materials, ensuring that the fabric of your shade sails will continue to perform even after years of exposure to the elements. The super tough abrasion resistant yarn offers excellent longevity with resistance to grime, mildew and dirt.
