What is Zipscreen?

Zipscreen systems are slimline all weather blinds that can be used to enclose outdoor entertaining areas. They can also be used as external window shade cloth blinds in place of outdoor shutters or awnings.

They can be used as alfresco blinds to provide coverage to patios, verandas, balconies and decks; as pergola blinds; as energy-efficient sunshade blinds in office buildings; in cafés for all weather protection – the options are nearly endless.

Featuring self-aligning side rails, these systems can even be installed in out of square areas, unlike many other outdoor shade options. They also take up very little space when not in use, simply rolling away into a discreet enclosed head box.


Hardware is available in a range of standard colours, with custom powder coated extrusions to match your existing décor.

A wide variety of fabrics can be used in your external blinds. One of our representatives can discuss all the options available to you when you book your free measure and quote.

The benefits of these blinds are they are not just an attractive addition to your out door area, these systems offer a wide range of other benefits:

  • Maintain external views if clear or mesh fabric used
  • Provide complete light seal if blockout material used
  • Protect against UV rays
  • Stop wind and rain from ruining outdoor entertaining
  • Provide comfortable shade
  • Stop insects from intruding
  • Extremely easy to use
  • Unobtrusive when not in use





Zipscreen can also be used as external sunshade blinds for windows. You can achieve massive heat reductions by blocking the heat before it reaches the window, which saves energy and reduces your cooling costs in summer.



The minimalist, slimline, contemporary design of these external shade blinds means that they can be installed in buildings and homes both traditional and modern. They are easy to install and easy to use, whilst complimenting your outdoor area.

Our Zipscreen range also includes the Zipscreen Extreme system to cater for much larger areas starting at around 5 – 6 Meters wide. These external blinds are all motorised due to the weight, and offer all the same benefits of a standard Zipscreen.
