The blind has a head cassette and unique side channels which encapsulate the edges of the fabric and trap the zip, reducing the amount of light ingress and also retaining the fabric in the side channels under impact or during changes in room pressure caused by opening and closing doors and windows or strong draughts. ZIP blinds are a popular choice with those who have home cinemas. ZIP blinds are also available as roof blinds for challenging, large atrium, sloping or sky light windows. They are available as manually operated blinds, or can be motorised and controlled by radio handset, mobile app, AV or home automation system. Each ZIP blind is unique, so please contact us if you require further information or a quotation on 0161 494 9616 or by emailing [email protected]
