Name that material
Does anybody have a clue what the name of the black material that lighbar covers are made out of, for funeral processions? Its that black stuff that light can still be seen through.

a quick search of the galls site lists it to be nylon.

I believe it is called 'bunting' and should be thin enough to see the lights through, yet mask most of the light.I.A.C.O.J. Charter Member

1835Wayne is correct, the name for it is "bunting." Any fabric store should be able to fix you up with a bolt of it. Keep in mind, as point out before, that you need it to be shear enough to allow some light to pass through. You also want to be sure it is not going to be overly heat sensative in case your lights put out some heat and you also want to be sure it is not going to "bleed" if it gets wet in the rain and leave black streaks on your clean apparatus.Richard Nester
