Industrial Shade Structures

Crop protection for large growers

Unlike a greenhouse (usually with plastic cover), cable-span shade structures allow a free-flow of the surrounding ambient environment. Shade cloth can breathe. It simply provides a barrier to sunlight, heat, pests and weather events – such as hail and high wind. These weather canopies have also been proven to reduce moisture evaporation. Our cable-span shade structures, using galvanised steel or treated pine posts and high tensile steel cable, are designed to withstand the damaging effects of storms, while providing an effective protected area for your commercial orchard. If you require orchard protection against birds, bats, hail, wind or heat, then an industrial shade structure is what you need.
