100% Australian made and owned

Pro-Knit Industries is proud to introduce its Monotec 370 Series FR, a flame retardant heavy duty Commercial grade knitted shade cloth. As with all Monotec fabrics, Monotec 370 Series FR shade cloth is manufactured using only the highest quality FR additives and UV stabilised HDPE to ensure a superior product.

With our unique knit construction and 100% round monofilament yarn, Monotec 370 Series FR is the strongest Flame retardant shade cloth on the market!

Engineered to pass the industry’s most stringent Fire Retardant tests including California State Fire Marshall Title 19, NFPA 701 and Class A Rating for ASTM E84.  


100% Round Monofilament HDPE Yarn

With a higher strength to weight ratio, round monofilament yarn is stronger than tape or oval yarns.

NO Tape Yarn Used

Flat and oval tape yarns are weaker and continue to stretch, causing sails to sag after installation.

NO Re-tensioning after installation

There is no need for installers to return after installation to re-tighten sails.

Market Leader for Strength

Exceeds Australian standards requirements for bursting and tensile strength

Strong wind resistance

Superior durability and performance especially in excessively high wind conditions.

Maintenance Free

Due to their smooth surface, round monofilament yarns are more resistant to dirt and debris build-up.

Vandal Resistant

The strength of round monofilament yarn, combined with the close lock-stitch construction makes it difficult to penetrate the fabric with damaging objects.

Industry Recognised

Utilised in multiple award winning projects in Australia and around the world.

3.25m and 6.5m widths

Wide widths help reduce unsightly seams, weak points and fabrication costs.
