The Benefits Ziptrak Blinds Offer Over Zipscreen Blinds.
Outdoor entertaining under Alfresco areas or verandas is popular across Adelaide. Offering effective protection from the Sun, outdoor blinds made from shade cloth fabric are widely used in preference to their café style PVC blind cousins.
Quality custom made outdoor shade blinds can be hung using 2 systems throughout Adelaide, one brought to you by Ziptrak and the other from Rollease Acmeda called Zipscreen.
Inviron Blinds use Ziptrak blinds exclusively, which our customers in-turn choose, after comparing the 2 brands.
To help you make an informed decision, we have outlined the facts with regards to the companies, features, advantages and benefits of Ziptrak over Zipscreen below, which made our decision which one of the two was best to offer our customers.
Ziptrak Is South Australian
Just like Inviron Blinds, Ziptrak is proudly South Australian. The partnership means jobs for South Australian’s and the money stays here.
RollEase Inc. is an American company that merged with Victorian company Acmeda Pty Ltd to form Rollease Acmeda based in Melbourne.
Ziptrak’s Outdoor Track-Guided Blind System Was First
For over 30 years, Ziptrak has been manufacturing outdoor Sun shade solutions. Responding to customers wanting a solution that had no gaps and was easy to operate, the company launched the innovative Track-Guided Blind System, which is the most popular external blind system sold throughout Adelaide, South Australia.
During 2015, due to the success of Ziptrak Blinds, Rollease Acmeda launched Zipscreen Version 1. After discovering a number of issues relating to their design, Version 2 was released, but still has issues with the zip sticking or jamming during windy conditions, especially when motorised.
Locking Systems Compared
Ziptrak offer channel locks plus an innovative ‘Centre Locking Mechanism’, which comes free of charge with all outdoor blinds installed by Inviron Blinds. The locking systems can be operated from inside or outside the blind which is a real benefit especially with tricky installations on balconies for example. Another feature of Ziptrak’s locks is they can be setup to lock in multiple positions.
Zipscreen only offer a bottom slide bolt, which can be used inside or outside, but with some situations, it means someone needs to go outside of the room to lock or unlock, before raising or lowering the blind.
Ziptrak Is Cheaper
Price, naturally is an important consideration.
Typically a single outdoor blind installed on the Ziptrak Track Guided Blind system is about $100 cheaper than the system used by Zipscreen, all other factors like the blind material for example being the same.
