Designed by our team in Australia, our Shade Systems are a must have accessory for every greenhouse owner. The frame is constructed from high quality aluminium pipe (not flat bar) for maximum strength and longevity. 

We chose Aluminet for our covering because of its great versatility in all weather conditions. We choose 50% shade  factor as this is suitable for most growing applications. Our shade system can be fitted and removed within minutes because of its ingenious design. 

We have designed our shade system with high brackets, keeping the shade cloth clear of the window vents opening, so you will not compromise you ventilation whatsoever. We offer our shade system frames in various colours to match our greenhouse ranges perfectly. (Colors subject to availability)

WHY DOES MY GREENHOUSE NEED SHADING?

Although it provides the optimal safe and beneficial environment, the greenhouse cannot take care of your plants on its own. Apart from watering and fertilizing the plants, you will also have to provide for proper greenhouse shade so that your garden is a success.

The hot and sunny summer days can be harmful for the plants grown in greenhouses.The increased temperature and the strong sunlight can literally burn the leaves, blossoms and fruits of the plants. The humidity levels inside the structure will also drop dramatically due to extensive overheating. Of course, the polycarbonate panels of the greenhouse will prevent the plants to an extent from the harmful effects of the plentiful sunlight, but ultimately you need to use a proper greenhouse shade that will provide the optimal growing conditions.

WHAT IS ALUMINET AND WHY DO WE USE IT?

-Aluminet shade cloth is a knitted fabric made from high density polyethylene strands that are  coated with reflective aluminium. 
-Aluminet fabric is more expensive per sqm than regular woven or knitted polyethylene shade  cloth.
-Aluminet reflects light and heat better during the day- Aluminet fabric acts like a mirror for light  and heat during the day.
-A greenhouse shaded with Aluminet fabric will be cooler during the day than one shade with black or dark coloured fabric of the same weave density.
-Aluminet produces better light diffusion during the day- Because Aluminet fabric is woven from twisted reflective strands, the light passing through the cloth bounces off the fabric at many angles, producing a more diffused light than light that passes through a black shade cloth. This means that when using Aluminet on your greenhouse, the light coming through the shade will spread more evenly across the leaves of plants beneath the shade. This may produces higher yields for some kinds of crops.
