No Zips, Buckles, Cords, Wires or Ropes – Neat, Modern and Tidy!
There are two blind type selections available with the Ziptrak system. The first is the Café blinds, which are clear or tinted plastic and provide a barrier and safe haven against the outside elements like dirt and bugs. In contrast, the Shade blinds are mesh or canvas and have small holes throughout. This helps with airflow while blocking insects and dust. Shade blinds have been found to do a better job of preventing sunrays and glare effects as compared to PVC materials. They also provide more privacy.
Ziptrak Interior Blinds also provide a new spin on the indoor living concept and environment. These blinds run on a vertical track from both sides. When the blinds are retracted, it is hidden behind a pelmet making it undetectable. With the Ziptrak system being so flexible, customers can outfit their homes inside and outside.
Where can you use Ziptrak in the inside?
The Ziptrak is great for apartments that have floor-to-ceiling windows, providing the ability to control the amount of light and privacy that enters the room. They are also good for bedrooms, home offices, or home theatre rooms. One of the advantages of the Ziptrak system is the cordless design which helps protect children and pets. In rooms that have too much sunlight, this would be a perfect solution using the side tracks and block out material. Commercial hotels, conference spaces, and board rooms can also benefit from using the Ziptrak system to block out the outside.
Ziptrak uses pelmets, which are narrow borders of wood or cloth that hides the hardware of the curtains or blinds. They currently come in two options: streamline and traditional. They also come in different sizes to accommodate the blinds depending on the type of fabric – mesh or PVC. At Custom Blinds, we select the pelmet that will work best for your blinds during the installation process.
Ziptrak Outdoor Blinds can also be used at businesses that encourage outdoor seating and working among its employees. In commercial settings, Ziptrak blinds are more effective if they are motorised.
Additionally, only the SunScreen blind material can be motorised. Ziptrak blinds also come in indoor selections too.
