Protect with UVR Block and Protection Favor Ratings

Research worldwide has shown that mainly UV-B, and to a lesser extent UV-A, radiation is harmful to humans and often causes sunburn. Additionally, chronic exposure to UVR has shown a relationship to increased rates of skin cancer. Therefore, the percentage of UVR blocks is an important factor when selecting shade cloth designed to protect people.

We offer high UV protection from harmful UV rays produced by the sun. MAXSHADE structures offer protection of up to 98.8% from UV rays protecting your children, family, and customers from the risk of skin damage such as skin cancers.

highest possible protection

All Gale shade fabrics have the highest protection factor results available. Fully tested according to AS4174 by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency, they deliver the highest level of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) protection of any commercial shade cloth.

COMMITTED TO RECYCLING

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Greenguard Certification

Gale Pacific’s Commercial 95® fabric is the first shade cloth in its class to obtain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Greenguard children and school certification.

The Greenguard and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certifications set strict limits for products to achieve in several key areas such as:

  • Limiting Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content
  • Lowering formaldehyde emissions
  • Lowering lead and phthalate content


Unlike commercial textiles such as PVC, polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) products are fully recyclable, however they are usually consigned to expensive and unsustainable landfill at end-of-life. Through our quest to implement a closed loop recycling program we not only eliminate landfill but we can ultimately convert retired products to new material.
