    That's what our run roof is made from.
    So far so good.

    $16.48 Was $32.97

    THANKS ! I just moved my old carport frame in the coop to hold up the netting. I have some of those panels and was hoping for more.

    Anyone know best way to cut them?

    We were all set to use a dremmel with a cutting blade but DH said let's make a little notch to get it started.
    He went to take a little chunk out of it with the tin snips he had in his hand. They are so old they belonged to his grandfather!
    Cut it like like butter all the way across!

    I tried tin snips on the older ones I had and they cracked :(

    Maybe the thickness of mine had something to do with it?
    Or maybe because they'd gotten brittle with age.
    I used a sharpie to make the cutting line rather than try to freehand it.
    As a plan B The dremmel with a cutting blade works but you need eye protection from the little hot bits of plastic that'll be flying, and also lay the sheet flat on a surface so you can keep your hands steady since the dremmel can hop a bit.
