Where to buy Silver mesh tarp?(poly-aluminum knit fabric )

Postby merkaba » Tue May 15, 2012 2:05 pm

Hi there, I got some of this a few years ago from a vender in Gerlach before the burn for pretty cheap, 60 bucks for 20x10 ft now all i can find online is these kooky dog people who want 3 times that much! http://www.silvershademesh.com/StandardTarps.html anyone know where to find this material cheaper? It is truly the best shade material! no need to tie down, as wind passes through it. easy to set up with these little plastic clips that grab the matierial wherever you want to attach it. I want more! please help

Also http://www.greenhousemegastore.com/category/shade-cloth.

For comparisons on fabricated tarps, make sure the estimate includes hemming with reinforcing tape, and grommets at least every 24" along the edge, preferably 12".

I have always had great service and price from Gothic Arch, and Bob's link looks good too. You might consider doubling the grommets at the factory to 1 per foot, or do it yourself after at home. You can wrap the cloth on domes without edging of a 7' roll. You might also find someone local who isn't going this year to borrow or rent. Sometimes you can find used black shadecloth on Craigslist, but bargains are unusual.

As for your original buy, the cheapest I've seen it in the last 5-6 years is about that price without edging.

International Greenhouse and Greenhouse Megastore online are apparently the same company -- the Center Camp Cafe crew has used them in the past to order their custom green & black shade cloth tarps, not sure who they use now. Any local tarp or rigging company can get you knit shade cloth, but a greenhouse supplier would be best for the aluminet stuff. Allow plenty of time for your order to get delivered.

Note there are differing types of mesh and shading.

They are great dust collectors.
