Silver Grey Shade

Aluminum knit alternative

Bringing together the benefits of the silver color of aluminum thread with the strength and longevity of woven virgin high-density polyethylene (HDPE), this Acadian exclusive product has been in use for years in Europe and Asia, as an improvement on the aluminum knit.  This silver grey was designed to reduce temperature, while providing shade and ease of installation.
