What is the name of the screen material which reduces uv exposure but allows air to flow through the cockpit?

by Robert

We want to reduce uv exposure during summer months with screen extensions to the existing bimini. We want air to pass through the screens while providing extra shade.

There are many fabrics that will do this for you, but the most common choices with a 90% sun block are phifertex plus, awntex, sunsure, textilene and a whole line of solar screens. For boats the most common are the first I listed. These will all allow the air to flow through to some degree.
