The Zipscreen difference

Zipscreen's patented technologies ensure frictionless operation, precise installation, and a seamless, durable design.

Slimline design

Made from engineering-grade, precision-extruded aluminium, the Zipscreen Frame and Headboxes are ultra-durable and sleek measuring 125mm. Available in multiple colours and configurations the Headbox is highly-versatile.

Adjustable Side Channels

Offering 20mm of adjustability, Zipscreen's Side Channels are designed to effortlessly adapt to fit almost any outdoor area and easily correct out-of-square openings. 

Hidden Zip Guide

Concealed within slimline channels, Zipscreen's patented z-LOCK™ technology fastens the fabric securely, creating a strong hold and ultrasmooth guide operation. 

Hidden lock

Exclusive to Zipscreen, the Ultra-Lock is a patented, adaptive locking mechanism. Integrated directly into the side channel, Ultra-Lock quickly secures and tensions your shade.


Automate is Zipscreen's premium motorised control solution featuring impact detection, a range of remote control options and the convenience of a smartphone app and voice control. 

Control is also available as a manual crank arm and a spring mechanism operated by a weight bar. 

Weight bars

Zipscreen has F56 standard & F72 heavy-duty weight control options – both feature a slimline square design and provision for additional weight to ensure the fabric is wrinkle-free. The weight bars are extruded strong and durable aluminium and colour matched to your shade.

Wind tunnel test results

A 2.4m x 2.4m Zipscreen shade withstood the maximum achievable wind speed of 140 km/h.

Even with these impressive results, it is always recommended to raise your Zipscreen when the wind may exceed  50 km/h | 31 mph. Performance may vary depending on your application and structural fixings.

Energy efficiency and external shades

Changing weather conditions can impact the efficiency of your home. 
A Zipscreen outdoor blind ensures the perfect climate all year round, naturally and efficiently. External blinds can block unwanted heat in summer keeping your home naturally cool and maximise sunlight in winter to keep your home naturally warm in winter.
