1. May I know what’s the difference between ZipScreen and outdoor blinds? Are they the same?
Answer: Both are known as external blinds. However, the functions are different. ZipScreen is also known as balcony screen as it helps to reduce rainwater, withstand strong wind, block out UV Rays, reduce sun glare and heat. Outdoor blind is more like outdoor shade, it can reduce the sun glare and provide you necessary privacy.
