Title: Is there a 100% blackout screen?

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop. Today we want to answer a frequent question: what is the best shading mesh available? Let's find out together!

Product Presentation

The product we are talking about today is the shading mesh Coimbra, available in green or anthracite (grey) colors. This mesh is made of polyethylene, with a monofilament weave that guarantees about 95% coverage. The mesh links are non-deformable and locked, which means that even if a hole is created, it will not enlarge.

Available Formats

The Coimbra mesh is sold in 50-meter rolls. The green color is available in five different heights, while the grey color is available in three heights. To facilitate cutting, we at Fenceshop also offer a convenient cutting meter.

Uses of the Mesh

The Coimbra shading mesh is ideal for residential uses thanks to its exceptional aesthetics and tactile quality. It is perfect for villas, terraces, balconies, and even around pools. Thanks to the double color, it adapts well to different areas, not just the classic green. This mesh offers almost total coverage, making it ideal for those seeking maximum privacy.


The Coimbra mesh has an installation difficulty rating of 2 out of 5, making it easy to install. We recommend tying it well every 20 centimeters at the top, bottom, and center, using a wire to keep the shading mesh steady. For better hold, classic binding wires or fix-ties, which distribute the force evenly, can be used. The mesh also features an insulation at the top and bottom, useful for threading a wire or securing it more stably.

Durability and Maintenance

The Coimbra mesh is guaranteed for 5 years by the manufacturer, but with proper installation, it can last even longer. It is important to ensure that the fence is robust to prevent the sail effect from causing issues. Even though the mesh is of excellent quality, it can fray when cut. To avoid this, we recommend folding the cut edges and tying them well.

Additional Uses and Curiosities

In addition to providing shading, the Coimbra mesh can be used to protect against wind gusts. Some customers have reported using it to shield themselves from drafts. Moreover, those with sewing skills can reinforce the edges or join two screens together using a sewing machine.

Shading Degree

The Coimbra mesh offers a very high shading degree. Placing a hand behind the mesh, only a silhouette of a shadow can be seen, ensuring almost total privacy. The back of the mesh is shinier, while the front is more matte, but the choice of which side to expose is personal.


We hope this information has been useful in better understanding the characteristics of the Coimbra shading mesh. If you have any questions or doubts, do not hesitate to contact us. Subscribe to our channel to stay updated on new products and useful tips. Greetings from Marco at Fenceshop!
