Frequently Asked Questions

Ziptrak® is a patented outdoor track-guided blind system, invented in Australia. Most blinds allow a user to lower and raise the blind, utilising the material of the blind to provide light control and privacy. Track-guided blinds take this a step further, securing the blind material at the left and right within vertical tracks.

The blind material is always held within these tracks, and the tracks are mounted to the wall. This results in a protective layer that controls the flow of air and restricts dust, dirt and insects from entering. The blind will not flap in the wind and there is no unsightly cords, ropes or latches. The sealed system allows the user to trap warmth within their outdoor area during winter, and block the heat from entering during summer.

There is a bar at the bottom of the material, which the user controls with their hand or via a remote for motorised operation. The bottom bar can be left at any height along the track. When fully retracted the blind rolls into itself at the very top, hidden by an optional pelmet. When fully down, the bottom bar locks (manually operated only) at the lowest point to secure the blind, providing a secure and tensioned hold. Non-motorised blinds are spring-balanced so that the weight of the blind material is substantially reduced for the user. This results in a blind that can be lowered or retracted at the touch of a finger.

The recommended maximum dimensions for Ziptrak® blinds are 6000mm wide by 3500mm high when using Sunscreen Mesh, or 5500mm wide by 3500mm high when using Clear PVC. Ziptrak® components including the top tube, spring and bottom bar are upgraded in size, and therefore strength, as the blind becomes larger. This allows the Ziptrak® system to perform at all sizes up to 6 meters, providing ease-of-use and superior wind performance.

Ziptrak® Fabricators will automatically upgrade the components of your system in order to strength your custom-made blind for larger openings. Importantly, there may be a difference between the size and appearance of the tube, pelmet or bottom bar, that should be considered when installing a large blind and small blind next to each other. Depending on the size of the blind and choice of material, there may be a single or multiple vertical seams between separate panels of blind material that have been welded together.

Ziptrak® is known in the industry for being a strong and robust outdoor blind system with premium wind performance and longevity.

In terms of the blind material, there are two categories; shade or PVC. Our Sales rep will be able to offer you a range of blind material options, in different colours and degrees of visibility, to compliment your structure, décor and outdoor furniture. Ziptrak® does not manufacture or sell the mesh or Clear PVC that is utilised with our track-guided blind system.

The colour of the Ziptrak® system componentry (pelmet, bottom bar and vertical tracks) is also customised to your individual requirements. A standard range of colours is available, additionally, you can custom select any colour for powder-coating, although this generally adds cost compared to selecting from the standard range.

A pelmet is a framework mounted over the top tube of the blind that conceals and protects the blind material and internal components. Ziptrak® offers a fully enclosed option made of extruded aluminium: the Ziptrak® Streamline Pelmet. This pelmet was engineered to withstand the toughest conditions, its design protects the underlying system from the elements, ensuring the blinds will look great and operate flawlessly for years.

The pelmet, vertical tracks and bottom bar are available in a wide range of colours or with the option to customise the colour to match your home structure.

You don’t need to have a pelmet protecting your blind, although it is highly recommended, especially if the blind will be mounted in an unprotected location.

Yes. Motorisation of Ziptrak® blinds is a popular and convenient option for many people. Only Ziptrak® blinds with a SunScreen blind material can be motorised, using 240V/AC tubular motor with an obstacle detection feature. Motorisation is a good choice if the blind is mounted in a difficult to reach place, or regularly operated by people that will have troubles manually operating it.

For commercial applications, motorisation is perfect for operating a large number of blinds at once.

Strong wind can hold the material of a Ziptrak® blind preventing it from sliding down the tracks, therefore, we recommend that motorised Ziptrak® blinds will be supervised by the operator while they are moving.

Ziptrak® blinds are trusted by thousands of Australian homes and businesses to provide an enjoyable outdoor living space. The strong and robust system is commonly installed throughout coastal regions and locations prone to high winds. If you are considering the wind speed, or wind rating for Ziptrak®, please take note of the following information:

In windy conditions, blinds should be left down and locked, or fully retracted – half way is the most vulnerable position. During severe weather events, your blinds should be fully retracted.

You may find Ziptrak® spring-balanced blinds are a little tricky to operate during windy conditions due to the pressure of the wind on the blind material. Use your hand to push against the blind material to reduce this pressure and then operate the blind.

Care must be taken when operating motorized Ziptrak® blinds in windy conditions. They must be supervised whilst raising and lowering at all times.

Installation is crucial to determining the performance of your blind in wind.

EziLux provides a 24-month warranty of all the components of the Ziptrak® Outdoor or Interior system. The skin (material/fabric) of a blind system is not included under the manufacturer warranty.

The warranty will void if the fabrication of Ziptrak® blind has not been done according to our fabrication manuals.

Fabrication manual

  • For hand-operated manual (spring-balanced) Ziptrak® outdoor blinds, always operate the blind from the centre. This will ensure the material rolls evenly onto the top tube.
  • Motorised Ziptrak® blinds should be supervised whilst in motion. Avoid operating the blind in high winds, as the motor will have difficulty moving the blind whilst wind pressure is against the material.
  • During high winds Ziptrak® blinds should be left either fully retracted onto the top tube, or fully down and locked at the bottom. During extreme weather events, Ziptrak® blinds should be fully retracted onto the top tube.
  • Blinds may have difficulty operating whilst in windy conditions, due to pressure against the blind material. Use your hand to push against the blind material to reduce this pressure and then operate the blind.
  • Avoid rolling up blinds when they are wet or have condensation on the surface. Moisture within the rolled up blind material may cause mould to form.
  • Ziptrak® outdoor blinds should always be smooth and simple to operate. If the blind is difficult to operate for no obvious reason, please contact us.

Ziptrak® is a brand of outdoor track guided blinds, protected under patent and invented in Australia. Customers should check whether they are purchasing a genuine Ziptrak® system.

Ziptrak® is the leading brand of outdoor blinds, with a range of differences to competitor products, which combined, make a considerable difference in the operation and longevity of your system. Ziptrak® is the trusted solution by thousands of households and businesses around the world, demanding a robust, long-lasting and easy to use outdoor blind.

Only Ziptrak® blinds have a centre-lock-release, which allows you to unlock both the left and right locks simultaneously from the middle. We are also the only system that allows you to lock and unlock the blind from both the inside and outside.

Next, Ziptrak® also has a unique method for attaching the blind material to the vertical tracks. We only utilise the finest materials with exceptional engineering and a patented design. Our system has a strong reputation within the industry, and is often imitated but never duplicated. This results in a secure hold, even with minor house movement and wind pressure on the fabric. The Ziptrak® system will not rattle in the wind, unlike many of the other brands.

  • Keeping the Sunscreen mesh or PVC clean is an important part of maintenance to the blind.
  • Clean the blind with a soft cloth and soapy cold water. Allow to dry before rolling up.
  • We recommend VuPlex® for PVC blind cleaning and maintenance. Depending on the type of PVC installed, there may be manufacturer instructions on how to best maintain that specific PVC.
  • PVC will show marks more readily than fabric, so ensure you are treating the surface with care. Be careful to avoid scratching the PVC material.
  • Ideally, PVC blinds should be dried with a cloth for the best cleaning results.
  • Never apply full strength detergents, cleaning fluids, soaps, insecticides or garden sprays to the blind material.
  • Never use bore water to clean the material, or allow bore water sprinkler systems to hit the blind.
  • Never allow petrochemicals or solvents to touch the blind surface.
  • Do not use a high-pressure hose to clean the blind.
  • Do not use window cleaning detergents to clean the blind.
  • Do not allow bird droppings, dirt or stains to remain on the material.

 Taking care of your blinds is important to their successful operation and visual condition into the future. Please ensure you correctly understand how to maintain the surfaces before attempting to clean.

The bottom bar locks into position with two locks at the bottom left and bottom right in order to keep the blind fully down and secured in high winds. If you are outside of the outdoor area and would like to be able to unlock the blind, ask us for a “reverse lock” addition to your centre-lock-release system. This will allow you to operate the centre-lock-release which faces the inside of your entertaining area, although you are on the outside.

These locks are not designed for use as a security measure. The blind system should not be used as a barrier for babies or children. The centre-lock-release mechanism is not child-proof.
