Shy Zip Sun Shades Are Perfect For High Wind Areas
What is a Shy Zip patio shade? They are different from regular exterior or interior solar shades. The Shy Zip System was originally designed for the bullet trains in Japan, as they needed to be able to withstand the pressure created by the tunnels. In a very short period of time the Shy Zip System made its way to the U.S. This shading system works great for high wind areas like we have around Denver. If you live towards the eastern plains of Denver you know all too well how windy it can get.
Until now, many would used the typical exterior solar shade, but as soon as a breeze would come up the shade would have to be lifted. Now that’s no longer the case, thanks to the design of the Shy Zip System. This system actually takes the fabric and zips it into a track to hold it in place. There’s also a cushion bumper that allows the shade to flex in the wind.
Shy Zip Sun Screens and Blackout Sun Screens
The Shy Zip System can also be installed as an interior solar shade with a double roller – one with a solar shade for visibility and the second to act as blackout shades. Audio/Video rooms would be a perfect application for this system. This would allow you to have glare reduction when wanted, but during a video demonstration or movie the room can be completely closed off to exterior light. This type of interior window shade is one of the most energy saving shades on the market.
All Shy Zip Sun Shades can be motorized. We make Shy Zip sun shades up to 19 feet long!
The Shy Zip rail system is made up of four main components:
- Aluminum guide rails support to operate the screen
- Cushion gum is used to prevent jouncing
- Inner rail is used with Slide-Fastener and support to operate smoothly
- The fastener is the key player behind the scene. Thanks to it, we realize light cut-off, noise cut-off and easy operation.
