Ziptrak is a track-guided blind system suitable for multiple situations. It is unobtrusive when up and aesthetically pleasing when down. The system is easy to use, with a specialised spring loaded roller and aluminium side channels which allow the screen to glide up easily or stay in any position you choose. Bottom catches lock the screen in position for heavier weather.
The outdoor blinds are custom made to suit your outdoor area either for privacy (coloured PVC), weather(clear PVC) or as a sunscreen (mesh or tinted PVC). The aluminium components can be powder coated to match your décor. The blind slots into a specially designed channel which keep its taut with no flapping or billowing. No bulky tracks, no ropes, no buckles, NO HASSLE!
Fixed panels can be installed in gaps between posts for ultimate weather protection.

Manual roll up Screens
Our quality Manual roll down screens are custom made to fit your outdoor area . We provide a reinforced PVC border around the perimenter of the clear or mesh centre panel. This perimenter PVC is available in a range of colours with a choice of clear, tinted or mesh fill. The style of screen you use will depend whether you want to shield yourself from the wind and rain while keeping the view,block out the neighbours for some privacy, or keep the area cool behind a clear PVC with a tint or a mesh fabric that will allow a light breeze through.
All those options will enable you to sit outside comfortably all year round no matter the weather. Manual screens are also your best option for an area with a sloping roof line, or built in seating, where the screens must be shaped to fit. The sides are zipped, and the screen is held in place while rolled up using straps and self release buckles, or alternatively velcro straps. There are no gearboxes used as the screens are rolled by hand. We usually use aluminium bars in the bottom of the screen to help with the rolling up process, and provide a bit of stability to the bottom of the screen.
This is a top of the range screen, designed for higher wind areas. The screens can be wound to whatever height you desire and locked in place, giving ultimate flexibility. The aluminium side channels protect the gap between the edge of the screen. These channels and bottom rail can be powder coated to match your home’s exterior . Like manual roll down screens, it is also available in a range of colours and fill. The gearbox is used with a handle for ease of use. The Channel It screen is very attractive and will compliment any home exterior.
A Channel It screen made in privacy mesh. This channel It screen is made with a mesh fill for privacy.
The customer asked for a fully enclosed entertaining area,but still required quick access to the house and bathroom facilities. To provide both we installed an aluminium door with a removeable door jamb and a Channel It side channel to give access via a door when the screens were closed. When fully open there was no obstruction from the door jamb and side screen side channel.
The Rollex system is mechanically operated using a gearbox and drum system similar to the Channel It system.There are no side channels or bottom rail. The bottom traditionally has an aluminium tube along the bottom, and fixings to allow the bottom to be secured. The screen is then tensioned using the gearbox and drum. There will be a gap at each side but this can be enclosed using removeable Velcro cover strips, or a timber Facing board that is installed against the post the cover the gap.
Screens are a useful, attractive addition in residential or a commercial applications. View the gallery at the top of the page for some examples and call us for a free site visit to discuss your options. Use the Contact page for more information
