Hidden Zip-Guided Technology

Patented z-LOCK™ technology provides a fabric guide like no other. Concealed within the channels, z-LOCK™ fastens the fabric securely, creating a strong smooth and streamlined finish. Tightly integrated , our zip-guided system ensures there are no gaps between the fabric and the channels, while ensuring a movement that won't blow out in the wind. Zipscreen’s z-LOCK™, combined with the bottom sealing strip creates a total seal and a relaxing insect free environment.

One Action Ultra-Lock & Tensioin

Our patented, new Ultra-Lock boasts adaptive locking technology, which allows the shade position to be easily reset if simultaneous locking is interrupted by unexpected weather conditions or obstacles. A stronger heavy duty latching pin combined with a hidden integrated design ensures a reliable solution, which can be pre-assembled off-site, for a quick & easy installation.
