What is the difference between Zipscreen and other outdoor blinds?
Zipscreen is a brand and the technology it uses is patented. It uses a retention system known as ‘Z-Lock’. Like FKR Group, Zipscreen have been in business in Australia for over 30 years. We have used and tested their products and this is one reason we recommend them to customers and are a distributor and installer. We trust the integrity of these products, and we customise the fit depending on the space requirements of the client.
Zipscreen is best thought of as a way of extending an existing open space by enclosing it within a screen. Most blinds go over windows, but Zipscreen is designed to replace windows in a more flexible manner in outdoor areas where a permanent fixture is not as appropriate. It can be rolled up or down as needed.
Where are Zipscreen blinds most commonly used?
Zipscreen blinds are most commonly used in outdoor entertainment structures – verandahs, patios, pergolas, etc. If you have an unprotected outdoor area, then they are an ideal enhancement.
They provide the perfect shade from Sun, rain, and insects while being very versatile. They are a stylish alternative to standard blinds and awnings. You won’t need to rely on heating or cooling units as much when you have Zipscreen blinds at hand.
What colour options are available with Zipscreen blinds?
Zipscreen fittings are available in 6 standard colour options – white, cream, black, grey, natural anodised, and monument. For the colour options, you need to contact the supplier (not the manufacturer). These are made separately from the hardware system.
What are the benefits of Zipscreen Blinds?
Zipscreen blinds come with many benefits, even as compared to other types of blinds. Some of these benefits include:
Strong & Reliable
Stop the blind at any height
Vast Range of Fabrics & Colours
Motorisation available (Required on ZipScreen Extreme)
Reduce heat and UV rays in summer
Reduced energy cost
Extend livable space
What are the customisation options for Zipscreen blinds?
There are many customisation options for Zipscreen. First, is that it can be operated manually, by an electric motor, or by a smartphone for smart home integration. The locking mechanisms include the Z-Lock, Ultra-Lock, and Aluminium Headbox. Each of these has distinct pros and cons, depending on what you’re after. There are currently 6 colour options for Zipscreen blinds in Brisbane.
Are there any drawbacks to Zipscreen outdoor blinds in Brisbane?
Not really, but you need to understand what they are made for. They are great for efficiency and convenience, and will protect you against the elements. But they are not designed to resist heavy rain and winds. So draw them back if a storm is coming. In addition, they won’t keep out a determined burglar anymore than regular blinds would. This is not so much of a concern as they are used in outdoor areas where little or no valuables will be kept.
Why should I choose FKR Group to install my Zipscreen blinds in Brisbane?
That’s a great question! As good as the Zipscreen product is, that’s really only half of the solution. A screen, blind, or any kind of fixture or fitting is only as good as the installation process.
If it’s not installed properly (and we’ve seen many poorly installed blinds and screens) will reduce the overall longevity of the product, and you will end up paying to replace or repair it. We have 30 years of experience with blinds and screens and our installs come with a warranty. Zipscreen is a quality product, and is best complemented with a quality install. We can also recommend other options if you’re not 100% sold on Zipscreen, as we work with many kinds of blinds and shutter products.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ZIPSCREEN BLINDS IN BRISBANE
What is the Zipscreen Z-Lock technology?
Z-Lock technology ensures there are no gaps between the fabric and the channels. Because the fabric is so securely attached it allows for increased longevity and effortless retraction. It also ensures there is no blowout in the wind. Ultimately, the Zipscreen Z-Lock technology allows for a smooth, seamless and integrated connection between the fabric and the channels. It’s also completely hidden within the channel so it has increased aesthetic appeal.
What is the Zipscreen Ultra-Lock technology?
The Ultra-Lock boasts similar benefits to the Z-Lock (integration, strength, aesthetic appeal), but is stronger and able to be used with heavier blinds. It’s easy to install and comes with a heavy duty latching pin. The Ultra-Lock also comes with adaptive locking technology, unlike the Z-Lock. This allows the frame to be reset if the simultaneous locking feature gets disrupted for some reason, such as a storm.
