Benefits of Ziptrak® Blinds in Melbourne
As a qualified and professional installer of Ziptrak® blinds in Geelong, we understand the difference outdoor blinds make in a home. They make a room appear bigger when you pull them up to reveal the beauty of the outdoors and allow natural light into the house. There are several advantages to installing outdoor blinds in your home.
It protects the occupants from the elements. The sealed blind system shields your outdoor furniture, patio and your home from harsh weather conditions. Wind, dust, rain and insects are some of the factors that cause damage to outdoor facilities. The blinds are easily moved up and down, and you can keep the opening as big or small as you prefer. Protection is essential to keep out the horrible weather and to maintain a safe environment for your family and guests.
Reduce your energy bills with the retractable shade system. It’s practical to shade your house in the summer and allow sunshine in during the colder months. This practice maintains an ideal environment inside the home all year round. Pulling the blind down during summer prohibits the sun from heating the house, thus preventing the use of an air-conditioner to modify the internal temperature.
The sunscreen mesh offers added protection to your indoors. It features up to 99% UV blockage with 96% wind and rain impedance and reduces the glare of the sun. Due to its material, it allows for airflow into the home and provides fresh air without dealing with harsh winds. It’s easy to maintain and doesn’t require frequent cleaning over the years.

What You Should Know About Curtains and Sheers
We manufacture curtains from a variety of fabrics, each of them with unique properties. To control the temperature of the room, the curtain gap between the material and the door or window should be minimal.
We use sheer fabric for privacy curtains. During the day sheer curtains allow the occupants inside a home to view the outside while shielding the occupants from outside. Its translucent fabric allows maximum light through and provides a basic shield from UV light. However, at night the sheer material offers less in terms of insulation and privacy.
Caring for your curtains ensures they last a long time. We recommend that there should be a 10cm gap between the door or window and the curtain. Doing this allows for better air circulation and prevents mildew or a build-up of heat, both of which cause damage to curtain material. We also suggest regular dusting and vacuuming with washing recommended once in a while.
Coated and uncoated fabrics. Most curtains comprise uncoated fabrics with tightly woven fibres that are opaque when viewed in light. There is a reasonable level of UV protection due to the material, but it doesn’t absorb strong light sources. Coated curtains provide more absorption due to the opaque rubber backing applied to the rear of the fabric. It’s capable of absorbing between 50% to 70% of light sources and should block out sunlight.
