Landscape Structures shade fabric creates an island of sun-safe cool Our breathable shade fabric is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Designed to block up to 97 percent of the sun’s UV rays and keep temperatures up to 30-degrees cooler, it is also resistant to mildew, fading and ultra-violet rays, making it a long-lasting, great-looking addition to any space.

We also have heavy-duty fabric available as a custom option for very large spans. We reinforce all corners with 16-ounce non-tear vinyl and all pockets with protective webbing where steel cable enters or exits. SkyWays products are engineered for super durability.
