The Zipscreen Difference

Zipscreen system's patented technologies ensure frictionless operation, precise installation, and a seamless, durable design.

Slimline Design

Made from engineering-grade, precision-extruded aluminum, the Zipscreen Frame and Headboxes are ultra-durable and sleek, measuring 5". Available in multiple colors and configurations, the Headbox is highly-versatile.

Adjustable Side Channels

Offering 20mm of adjustability, Zipscreen's Side Channels are designed to effortlessly adapt to fit almost any outdoor area and easily correct out-of-square openings. 

Hidden Zip Guide

Concealed within slimline channels, Zipscreen system's patented z-LOCK™ technology fastens the fabric securely, creating a strong hold and ultra smooth guide operation. 

Hidden Lock

Exclusive to Zipscreen, the Ultra-Lock is a patented, adaptive locking mechanism. Integrated directly into the side channel, Ultra-Lock quickly secures and tensions your shade.


Automate is a premium motorized control solution featuring impact detection, a range of control options and the convenience of operating shades via a smartphone app or using voice commands. 

Manual controls are also available with the Zipscreen system, including a manual crank arm and a spring mechanism operated by a weight bar. 

Weight Bars

Zipscreen shades have F56 standard & F72 heavy-duty weight control options – both feature a slimline square design and provision for additional weight to ensure the fabric is wrinkle-free. The weight bars are made of extruded, strong, and durable aluminum, and can be color matched to your shade.
