Neat and stylish, ZIP® blinds can be installed in multiple applications including dim-out, shading, light control, heat control, insect screens, room dividers and more for business presentations and home cinema screens, to name a few.

The heart of the system is SHY®’s specially designed zipper ribbon which is welded to the edges of the blind fabric to create a super-strong, flat join. The zipper ribbon is securely held in a shaped plastic side channel, which allows the blind to run freely and quietly, but prevents the fabric from being pulled out of the channel.

With the box and side channels, the standard colours are white (RAL 9910) and black (RAL 9005) 60% gloss. Natural anodised is also possible on some ranges as standard and others depending on quantity.

Other plastic parts/components are white, black, or grey to complement the paint colour chosen.

ZIP® blinds offer excellent light seal. The side channels guide the cloth in the side channels while the optional bottom channel receives the hem bar with a brush strip thus reducing light ingress around the base of the blind while the optional shelving system protects the sides from the same.

Energy efficiency

The full cassette system saves energy as air is trapped between the glazing and the blind fabric providing additional insulation. The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) guidance on the thermal resistance of blinds states that full cassette blinds with low emissivity fabric is 8.8 times more effective than a standard roller blind.

Noise protection

When the blind is fully lowered air is trapped between the glazing and the fabric helping to create a dead area similar to the way double glazing works thus helping to reduce noise.
