Shade netting is used in extremely hot, sunny locations where natural shade or shading from local materials is not an option. Can be used to shade shelters, work spaces or used in agriculture. Bulk purchases will usually be sold in rolls of 50m to be cut to need.
Procurement location: Local procurement may be possible. However, it will be necessary to ensure quality controls and have specification details from manufacturer. When buying in bulk, international suppliers are usually the best option.
