Importance of Shade Nets

Shade nets are important to avoid excessive evaporation and water loss through high sunlight. These nets are not harmful to plants at all, they are fabric non-decaying materials. Therefore, shade nets can last for a long time without releasing chemicals or harmful gases to plants unless exposed to heat.


Penetration Levels of Shade Nets

Shade nets are knitted with various space or hole allowances left. These spaces are meant for aeration and sunlight penetration.
There are 35 %, 55%, 75% and 90% shade nets.

How Our Affordable Shade Nets work

Knitted shade nets designed to allow sunlight penetration at different levels. The sunlight that passes through is determined by the size of the holes.
Our shade nets have dull colours to attract warmth and lose it to the surrounding when it exceeds. The colours are black or green.

Features of Shade Nets

  • No need to worry about extreme radiations as shade nets are plastic materials which melt at very high temperature.

  • Shade nets are long-lasting – The materials for making shade nets are polymers which take many years to decompose.
  • Shade nets are compatible to all structures – Nets are flexible enough to fit into any structure or shape.
  • Ease of carrying and packaging – Nets are light and convenient to move from place to place. Packing and offloading is easy.

  • Shade netting is a key alternative material to wire mesh in poultry farming and bird keeping. The mesh sizes in netting material prevent prey birds such eagles and vultures that often bring losses.
