There are many types of outdoor blinds on the market, but by far one of the most common and most popular brands is Ziptrak. Nu Style Shutters is an accredited and preferred Ziptrak installer and we are often asked what makes them so popular, and if they are actually a worthwhile investment. So, let’s take a look at why Ziptrak blinds have become one of the best-selling outdoor blinds in Australia.
Ease of Use
They operate with a unique spring-balanced system, ensuring lightweight hand operation. Without the need for pulleys, chains, zips or cords, Ziptrak blinds are by far the simplest outdoor blinds to operate. The Ziptrak system also features a unique centre-lock-release, meaning that when you are ready to open your blinds, simply lift the handle to activate release latches on both sides of the bottom bar.
The strong dual chamber track is designed to endure winds of up to 120km per hour. Suited for both residential and commercial blinds applications, these blinds are made from the toughest, and highest quality components to withstand years of heavy use.
A Complete Seal
Most outdoor blinds have gaps which let in dust, wind, rain and insects. Ziptrak blinds provide a sealed barrier, keeping out heat during summer, but keeping it in during winter. Not only does this maintain a pleasant internal temperature, it helps reduce reliance on outdoor heating and cooling systems such as gas heaters or electric fans.
With a sleek and sophisticated design, Ziptrak outdoor blinds complement any style of home. Aluminium componentry is readily available in 5 different popular Colourbond® colours, or you can powder-coat to achieve almost any desired colour. Whether you want your blinds to seamlessly blend in or provide a contrast to your existing colour scheme, you can choose your look and even select customised colour options for the vertical tracks, bottom bar and pelmet.
Choose from High Quality Sunscreen Mesh or PVC
Ziptrak mesh blocks up to 99% of harsh UV rays whilst providing up to 96% wind and rain block. It offers a high level of protection and a reduction in glare yet still allows fresh air to flow through. PVC is available in clear or tinted options and provides complete block-out of wind, dust, rain and debris, whilst providing clear and uninterrupted views.
Multiple Motorisation Options
Although optional, motorisation is a popular choice for Ziptrak customers. With the motor tucked away within the pelmet, there is no impact on the sleek design and the simple one-touch operation is perfect for people with limited mobility. Ziptrak also offers unique SolarSmart™ motorisation. This solar powered motor allows for motorised operation without the need for an electrician to hard-wire into your building.
Different Pelmet Options
Depending on your building and the look you wish to achieve, Ziptrak blinds are available with Colorbond® folded pelmets, extruded aluminum pelmets or with no pelmet at all. Pelmets are stylish in design and ensure the blind operates flawlessly and looks great for years to come.
Australian Engineered, Designed and Made
Ziptrak blinds were invented by Aussies, for use in Australia conditions. We all love spending time outdoors, but sometimes we need a little shelter from the hot summer sun or howling wind and rain. These highly engineered blinds are made specifically for use in Australia’s harsh climate to allow Australians to enjoy their outdoor spaces regardless of what mother nature throws at them. Additionally, as all parts are made locally, they are readily available. And supporting local brands is better for our economy!
