electric motorised SHY ZIP blackout blinds

the highest levels of blackout


SHY® ZIP® roller blinds offer market leading levels of blackout

SHY ZIP® blinds achieve a standard virtually unsurpassed by any other roller blind screen system on the UK market today.

Neat and stylish, ZIP® blinds can be installed in multiple applications including dim-out, shading, light control, heat control, insect screens, room dividers, for business presentation & home cinema screens, to name a few.

The heart of the system is SHY®’s specially designed zipper ribbon which is welded to the edges of the blind fabric to create a super-strong, flat join. The zipper ribbon is securely held in a shaped plastic side channel which allows the blind to run freely and quietly but prevents the fabric from being pulled out of the channel.

Why choose a SHY® ZIP® roller blinds?

ZIP® blinds offer excellent light seal: guides trap cloth in the side channels. The optional bottom channel receives the hem bar with a brush strip, which reduces light ingress around the base of the blind. Light gaps are also minimised around the head of the blind.

The fully cassetted system saves energy as air is trapped between the glazing and the blind fabric providing additional insulation. The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) guidance on the thermal resistance of blinds states that a fully cassetted blind with a low emissivity fabric is 8.8 times more effective than a standard roller blind
