Choose mid-range porosity fabric such as 47%, 40%, and 34% aerodynamic porosity. These fabrics are in the sweet spot for effectiveness for industrial dust control as they allow enough air to pass to minimize downwind turbulence, but still give excellent shelter. Moving from 47% aerodynamic porosity fabric towards 34% aerodynamic porosity gives better close in shelter but increases the load on the structure. For very turbulent incoming winds, 47% aerodynamic porosity fabric will usually be better as it is more of a filter.
- Optimal wind sheltering – wind fencing
- Solar fencing
