Plain shade cloth or commonly known as scrim is an incredibly versatile product and can used for almost anything. Created from a permeable substrate, shade cloth/scrim is well suited to the harsh Australian conditions as it allows large winds to pass through the material with ease, allowing for light and low risk loads on the structure it is attached to.
The installation process isn’t at the peril of the client as shade cloth can be quickly and easily applied to temporary fencing via cable ties. Shade cloth is a very flexible option and can be installed on scaffolds, temporary fences, chain wire fences as well as building facades which is customised to suit your site. Shade cloth is a very adaptable option and is well suited for construction site advertising, scaffolds, and it is often seen at music festivals and sporting events. Because of the cost, it is recommended scrim is used where clients have longer runs and where the quality of print is not of the highest concern.
All building and OH&S requirements as per relevant building codes apply to our shade cloth fabric products. As standard, our scrim comes with fully UV stabilised inks and substrates, ensuring that your sign will last and not fade for at least 12 months. Construction and development sites, retail sites, community and school locations and large-scale events of all types are perfect fits for our printed shade cloth option.
We sell our unprinted, partially printed or fully printed shade cloth in lengths of 50 metres so it is ideal for longer runs of temporary or permanent fencing. Made from knitted monofilament polythene, it is durable and only has a stretching factor of around 2-3% ensuring the sign will not droop over time after installation. Our scrim is 70% density which in turn allows for a great quality print without losing the benefits of substrate permeability and its ability to handle wind. Shade cloth is most commonly used in longer runs where there is not much room for wind forces to escape. This isn’t a problem as our plain or printed shade cloth is well suited to windy areas.
Mesh Direct has a great logistics network and therefore can produce large orders of shade cloth and can usually guarantee the delivery of your banners within 10 days from the date of payment confirmation and/or artwork approval. All of our shade cloth banners, both printed and unprinted are only available in 50 metre rolls with a minimum order of 2 rolls. If plain shade cloth isn’t right for you, we also have banner mesh available to be shipped to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
We are extremely happy with the banner mesh we ordered and have had positive feedback when it was used for projects. I was also very impressed with the professional way that the ordering process was undertaken and the very quick turnaround time to actually produce and deliver the product.
It has been an absolute pleasure partnering with Marcus and the whole team at Mesh Direct, always delivering great quality products and advertising for Unita with a smooth and reliable ordering and delivery process, it’s most certainly a relationship that will be ongoing in the future.

Elliot Stokes is one of a few good men being a man of his work which is an extremely rare commodity today and I would use Mesh Direct again because of that.
First of all, the website is fantastic and the online ordering experience makes things much, much easier and efficient. Also your sales rep is friendly and helpful. I received the product in time as promised. Quick and easy service for us. The overall quality of the print is great! Since day 1 the mesh banners were facing extreme weather conditions (storms including hail and heat rays). Yet they look like new. The colours haven’t faded at all! Our Director is really impressed with the quality that you guys have put into the product. Awesome work! Love it. Would recommend to anyone who would seek your service and products.
