Large Ziptrak screens in mesh. All 3.1m wide with drops of 3.3m and over 4m.
Scroll down to bottom of page for images of before and after. Sorry about the quality of the photos, we ran out of daylight on this job!
in this instance we fitted Ziptrak screens to the outside front of the Oztech Tera retractable pergola in order to eliminate any lose of height at the front. When they are up you wouldn’t even know that they are there – but they can be quickly pulled down to provide protection from wind and rain. Awesome!
At 9m wide, this is the widest we can go with 2 bays (3 rafters.) We can go up to 13m wide in a single system with 3 bays. And, of course, we can join individual systems together to create a system as long as you’d like (see our job at Jack Tar, which was 3 individual systems butted together to create a total width of 25m!
An all-weather outdoor room in a matter of seconds! Ziptrak’s offer the ultimate in protection from wind and rain and can be installed in such a way that they blend into the environment when not required.
Removable posts are a great option when you have a large open span that you don’t want permanently interrupted. Removable posts are only available on manually operated Ziptrak blinds.
These Ziptrak also have the optional full pelmet fitted. This fully encases the roller tube at the top for a cleaner installation and added protection for the blind when opened.
We recently sent 13 Ziptrak screens to a customer of ours on Norfolk Island. They had bought traditional cafe-style blinds off us about 10 years ago and were after something that would stop the wind from getting around the edges of the screens. Ziptrak was the obvious choice!
We recently returned to the Hunting Lodge to install Ziptrak outdoor blinds along the outside edge of the Oztech retractable pergola we installed last year during their renovation of The Barn.
Each of these blinds is 4 metres wide and 2.5 metres tall. We used Ferrari Soltis 86 mesh for the blind material. Soltis 86 has excellent properties for mesh outdoor blinds, especially larger ones like these – its best characteristics being its light weight and incredible strength and dimensional stability.
When rolled up, these Ziptrak screens are undetectable. The Ziptrak units are mounted on the outside of the building in fully enclosed pelmet units. They are mounted above rather than inside the opening so that they can’t be seen. The vertical posts are also removable making the area fully open when the screens are up.
We’ve set up a demo-unit Retractable Pergola at our factory in Kingsland. It is also serving as our all-season outdoor tea room.
