What is the difference between standard shade net and reflective shade net?

Standard shade net is an affordable, extremely durable means of protecting plants and crops from direct sunlight. A shade net is placed on the exterior roof of a greenhouse, cold frame, or high tunnel where it blocks a percentage of light from penetrating the building, hence keeping plants more comfortable. This type of shade material is appropriate for general gardening, farming, and greenhouse applications and is widely used in the commercial farming and gardening industry.



Which shade material should I use?


You can use shad net material according to your crop. Those shade material helps protect livestock, pets, plants, and people from direct sunlight and also works well as a privacy barrier or windscreen. Experience has shown that growers use mostly 50% to 75% density, with the high densities of 70% to 95% used in southern states and for light-sensitive plants in northern states.


Many people find that using a high-density shade on roofs and a lower-density shade on walls is a good method for creating ideal shade conditions. Vegetable gardeners should check with their local University Agricultural Extension office to determine the shade cloth density that is appropriate for both the climate and plant variety.


What does the shade percentage mean in relation to the shade material?


Shade density is determined by the percentage of light blocked by the shade. For example, the definition of 75% shade is that only 25% of light passes through it. A shade percentage of 30 to 75% is ideal for vegetables, while 90 to 95% is ideal for protecting people.
