Genuine Ziptrak® Sunscreen Mesh Blinds
Ziptrak® is the original outdoor blind system with a patented, track-guided design that glides smoothly and stops at any height.
We are very proud of the work our installers have recently completed. Here are a few jobs for your viewing pleasure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Ziptrak® blind system along with Mesh or PVC skins, shield you, your patio and furniture from wind, rain, glare and insects. Ziptrak® outdoor blinds will accommodate for a variety of sunscreen fabrics including woven mesh.
The weight and weave density of the mesh will influence the level of transparency, UV and rain protection. Depending on the type of mesh, you can expect a 70-90% protection from rain, wind, sun and UV.
Clear and tinted PVC offers a completely rain and wind proof surface. As fabrics are not a product of Ziptrak® please ask your Ziptrak® retailer about the wide variety of fabric options for your Ziptrak® blinds or contact the fabrics manufacturer for more information.
The strong and robust Ziptrak® system is commonly installed throughout coastal regions and locations prone to high winds. If you are considering the wind speed, or wind rating for Ziptrak®, please take note of the following information:
In windy conditions, blinds should be left down and locked, or fully retracted – halfway is the most vulnerable position. During severe weather events, your blinds should be fully retracted.
You may find Ziptrak® spring-balanced blinds are a little tricky to operate during windy conditions due to the pressure of the wind on the blind material. Use your hand to push against the blind material to reduce this pressure and then operate the blind.
Care must be taken when operating motorized Ziptrak® blinds in windy conditions. They must be supervised whilst raising and lowering at all times.
If you are looking at having some airflow, but primarily block sun and glare, then shade materials will be most effective. Sunscreen mesh materials can block a high degree of wind and rain (up to about 96%), whilst also somewhat maintaining the temperature within your space.
Sunscreen mesh fabrics provide privacy during the day, allowing you to see outside but restrict the view into the outdoor area. At night, the opposite occurs; you won’t be able to see beyond the fabric, whilst someone standing outside will clearly be able to see in if you have a light on within your outdoor area.
The spring balanced Ziptrak® blind allow customers to put the blinds up and down manually without any hassle.
Motorised blinds need the motor to pull the skin up or down. Only if your motorised blind has a battery or solar panel that could still supply electricity on a power cut, you might be able to manipulate your motorised blinds.
A pelmet (hood box or cassette) encloses and protects the system from weather and creatures, ensuring your blinds will look great and operate effortlessly for years. It is highly recommended for blinds installed outside of the structure.
The new Ziptrak® Streamline Pelmet with Insect Control system is 60% thicker; completely aluminium rust-free; perfect for coastal conditions; has a discrete design and sleek appearance and can come with a Unique Insect Control System*.
Ziptrak® blinds must always be installed by an experienced Ziptrak® installer to ensure they are installed perfectly square. The Ziptrak® system doesn’t work installed as bottom up, horizontally or on an angle. The specially designed spring tension system works only vertically (pulled up and down) as it uses gravity and tension forces.
If the ground slopes or you need increased weather/dust resistance, retailers can offer a custom-made skirt or valance to cover the gap when the blind is locked down.
Generally most councils do not require residents to apply for approval for the installation of outdoor blinds. However, seek independent advice specific to your given council and requirements. Buildings in a community group or managed by a strata may have restrictions that you should consider before deciding to install outdoor blinds.
Ziptrak® is a patented outdoor track guided blind system, invented in Australia. Most blinds allow a user to lower and raise the blind, utilising the material of the blind to provide light control and privacy. Track guided blinds take this a step further, securing the blind material at the left and right within vertical tracks.
The blind material is always held within these tracks, and the tracks are mounted to the wall. This results in a protective layer that controls the flow of air and restricts dust, dirt and insects from entering. The blind won’t flap in the wind and there is no unsightly cords, ropes or latches. The sealed system allows the user to trap warmth within their outdoor area during winter and block the heat from entering during summer.
There is a bar at the bottom of the material, which the user controls with their hand or via a remote for motorised operation. The bottom bar can be left at any height along the track. When fully retracted the blind rolls into itself at the very top, hidden by an optional pelmet. When fully down, the bottom bar locks (outdoor blinds only) at the lowest point to secure the blind, providing a secure and tensioned hold. Non-motorised blinds are spring balanced, so that the weight of the blind material is substantially reduced for the user. This results in a blind that can be lowered or retracted at the touch of a finger.
All About Shade provides a 5 Year Guarantee on all installations. Additionally, Ziptrak® provides a 24 month warranty of all the components of the Ziptrak® Outdoor or Interior system. This warranty is supplied to fabricators, retailers and installers of Ziptrak® blinds who purchase the components from Ziptrak Pty. Ltd., or an Authorised Ziptrak® components distributor.
Ziptrak® does not manufacture or supply the skin/fabric (mesh or PVC) utilised in a blind. As a result, the skin is not part of the Ziptrak® system and are not included under Ziptrak® componentry warranty.
The aluminium frame system has not been tested for ‘residual noise’. To find out more about the skin materials of your Ziptrak® blinds and their physical properties, please contact your Ziptrak® retailer or the mesh/PVC manufacturer.
We can provide a price guide based on house plans however we would require an on-site inspection prior to finalising an installation price to ensure we are installing a system perfectly suited to your situation.
