Frequently Asked Questions

On windy days, it is important to ensure that all your outdoor blinds are left down and locked, or fully retracted. The halfway position is the most vulnerable position for Ziptrak blinds during heavy weather events. Henceforth, if you want to protect your alfresco area against the elements, we’d recommend rolling your blinds down and securing them tightly, or otherwise drawing them back up again. When severe weather warnings are announced it is essential that your blinds are fully retracted as storm damage is not covered under the Ziptrak warranty. Please note that Ziptrak blinds can be a little tricky to operate throughout windy conditions, due to the high pressure of the wind acting against the fabric. To get past this, simply push against the material with your hand to reduce the pressure and then operate the blinds as per usual.

Therefore, we always recommend that you supervise your motorised Ziptrak blinds whilst they are moving.
