Tips for Installing

How to join sections of shadecloth – Crackpots shade cloth comes with reinforced edging on both sides.   In this edging there are buttonholes.  These buttonholes are ideal for joining shade cloth.  To join two pieces of shade cloth, overlap along the long edge and align the buttonholes so that you can thread wire through the holes.  Make sure you go in and out –  see. image below.   We recommend using a nylon or PVC coated wire as this will reduce the wear on the shadecloth over time.

What is the best method of fixing shadecloth to a structure like a shed or a fence?  We recommend using a similar method to above, and thread the PVC coated wire through the buttonholes to. create an edge that can then be tensioned and fixed into place.  By attaching the wire, rather than the shadecloth directly, you are spreading the load across the length of the wire, and by doing so reducing the risk of ripping or tearing.
