How do I care for my ZipScreen?

We recommend regular cleaning (at least every 3 months) to ensure surfaces are free from dirt, dust and grime. Use a soft brush to clean the blind, paying particular attention along the side channels to prevent dust and dirt build. Aluminium extrusions can be cleaned with a soft cloth and warm soapy water or a small amount of mild detergent if required. Do not use any silicone or oil-based sprays as it can cause dirt and grime build up in the side guides and can damage certain fabrics.

How does the unique side fastening system work?

The fastener is welded onto the fabric and fed into the side rails, allowing it to be securely guided up and down in operation. This unique fastening system provides the stability and protection needed in alfresco blinds.

How large can ZipScreen be made?

Your external roller blinds can expand to a total area of 14 sqm. The maximum possible width is 3.5 metre to 4.0 metres and maximum drop is 4 metres. If your area is larger than this, please consult with a professional for further advice.

What colours are available?

There are six standard colours available for the fittings: pure white, classic cream, natural anodised, black, woodland grey, and monument. The hardware can also be custom colour-matched to suit your existing outdoor decor. The shade cloth that blinds are made from is sold separately, so for a complete fabric selection please consult your supplier.
