Shade Cloth

Shade Cloth Products for Usage in Construction, Commerce and Agriculture

Landpak, as one of the three companies that make up the International Group of Companies (IGC) manufactures a wide range of shade cloth applicable to building and construction, commercial and domestic use, and the agricultural sector.

The product range includes the Builder Shade suitable for usage in demolition, construction and mining; Supershade for commercial, domestic and industrial usage, and Agrishade for applications in the nursery and agricultural settings.

The shade cloth is made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which has UV inhibitors added for life expectancy of eight years.  Landpak produces the complete product in-house with internal quality control labs testing the products to ensure that high manufacturing and product standards are not only met, but exceeded.  The cloths come in various sizes and lengths according to client requirements.

With the addition of UV inhibitors through Hindered Amine Light Stabilisers (HALS) the shade cloth can help to hinder harmful rays from penetrating and damaging products up to 90%.  We make use of independent testing to ensure that consistency is gained in shade percentages and UV transmittance. 

We make use of the Rachel warp knitting method to incorporate the lock stitch for protection against laddering and tearing. The products come with internal memory ensuring that the cloths will return to their original shape once surface tension is no longer applied. Apart from the above, we also apply heat setting to ensure additional dimensional stability.  All the shade cloths made by Landpak are easy to repair and have exceptional stretch capacity for easier set-up over structures.

Builder Shade

The shade cloth is well-priced and manufactured to withstand the harsh South African weather conditions and to meet the high standards and requirements of the building and construction industry. Applications include for instance, ventilation in mining, prevention of erosion, crowd control, protective barrier at demolition sites, hiding of scaffolding, and as skirting material in addition to usage for reclamation purposes.


The Supershade cloth is used to provide shade and protection to valuable assets in outdoor settings. The net is made with aesthetic requirements in mind and comes in a wide range of fashionable colours.  The cloth is used in commercial and industrial settings as carport structure covers and also for industrial storage.

When it comes to domestic usages, the list can go on and on. From vehicle shade ports to protect against UV rays and possible hail damage to sight screens for cricket pitches and swimming pool covers are available. Landpak furthermore manufactures shade netting for playground structures, kennels, patios, and gazebos.


The strong shade cloth is specifically applicable to agricultural and nursery applications to protect plants and animals from harsh weather conditions, birds, pests, and butterflies. The netting is made from virgin High Density Polyethylene with added UV inhibitors to protect against harmful effects of UV rays. The products are lock stitched to enhance stability and come with eyelets for easier set-up. Shade factors range from 20-80% and we make the cloth in sizes 3m by 50m, which can be customised to meet client requirements.

The cloths provide more than just shade and help to protect against temperature fluctuations, extreme windy conditions, hail and birds. Air surface evaporation is minimised, which helps to reduce fertilisation and irrigation costs. With the nets over crops, one will be able to spray the crops even in windy conditions. The shading can also be used over plastic tunnels to protect the plastic against weather elements and thus prolong the life expectancy of the plastic.  With the shade cloth, the farmer is able to manipulate the amount and quality of light to ensure optimal production.
