Outdoor Blinds


Zips and Guides outdoor blinds are attached on three sides by rope in an aluminum rope track, and have zips on either size to give you a "door" to roll up. 

They have zips up both sides of the curtain with a aluminum tube in a small pocket at the bottom, to allow easy rolling of the curtain up to the Velcro ties and to keep the fabric flat.

Fabric options include 0.75mm fire retardant clearglass PVC, with a coloured border for reinforcing, as well as a large range of mesh fabrics.

Zipped drop curtains can be up to 5.5m wide with a 3.5m drop, and zips can be located at various places on the curtain to form doors etc.

Fabric options

Clearglass PVC

With a coloured border for reinforcing, our Clearglass PVC is 0.75mm thick and fire retardant, so suitable for use in public areas including daycares and restaurants.

This is very popular, because it provides best visibility. Unfortunately there are limitations which must be understood.

  1. The fabric is not reinforced, and if it starts to tear, the tear will continue. To overcome this, we often weld a reinforced PVC border to it, but this is labour intensive, and adds to cost.

  2. The fabric has a high shrinkaqe rate. For this reason, we avoid using Zips and eyelets on the sides, as they may no longer fit after a period of time. The shrinkage can also result in side wrinkles. No warranty is offered on shrinkage.

  3. It does not retain 100% clarity for very long, scratches easily, and becomes milky looking when waterlogged.

  4. Tends to stretch out of shape, and often rolls crooked, and tends to stick to itself when rolled.


PVC Mesh Fabric

 These are a compromise, as they do not provide 100% weather protection, or 100% visibility. We have found that mesh DOES provide better protection and visibility than generally envisaged. We only used reinforced PVC mesh, which is excellent for durability, and does not shrink.
There is a perceived lack of visibility with PVC mesh, but check out our photos and the fabrics in our showroom.  The benefits outweigh the small loss of visibility. 
There are a variety of  colours, brands, and mesh sizes.  PVC mesh come with a 10 year warranty.
Channelled outdoor blinds can be up to 5m wide with a 3m drop. 

Cool Awnings drop curtains are manufactured using a high frequency welding process, and have a 5 year warranty on most fabrics, labour and hardware.
Drop curtains are NOT suitable for high wind situations.
