Zip Tex - Solar or Insect Screen with end retention system

 

What separates the Zip Tex from the standard Solar Screen? The Zip Tex End Retention System! A small coil style zipper is the key component of this end retention system, providing a smooth, quiet operation with no binding or bunching of the roll. The Zip Tex End Retention System secures the screen in the tracks, firmly eliminating those pesky bugs from finding their way in. This feature also ensures total shading coverage track to track.

 
Alutech United, Inc. has taken its expertise and experience in roll shutter manufacturing and coupled this with the latest innovations in sun control products in order to design the ZIP TEX rolling solar screen. Through manufacturing efficiencies and component overlap, the Zip Tex system utilizes the best features of a rolling shutter, Alutech's large inventory, and improved rolling screen features to deliver the very best rolling screen product in the marketplace.

Wind resistant!
Our unique end retention option ensures wind resistance and operabilty using a buit-in dampening system. Zip Tex is equipped with a special side rail insert that allows the screen to flex under wind pessure, but keeps the screen anchored in the rails. The Zip Tex will keep your screens in the rails at any position, fully closed, fully open or any position in between.

FAQ

What colors can I choose from?

Depending on the product standard colors are white, cream, beige, gray, ivory,  bronze, silver and brown. Many non standard colors and custom color options are available upon request.

How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?

Special switches will operate up to 2 shutters. Somfy's RTS or IGC Technology can be installed to operate virtually an unlimited number of shutters with only one switch. Somfy Systems can also be adapted to control one or more motors in groups and/or individually from one or more locations. In addition, we can interface with most home automation and z-wave systems.

When should I use a Motor with Gear Override?

Motorized shutters with a gear override option are recommended and required for any opening that may be used as an emergency exit. If power is lost, a motorized shutter with gear override can be manually opened for exiting the building. Some areas are also prone to frequent power outages. If this is the case, we would recommend manual shutters when possible and motorized shutters with gear override.
