At up to 25' wide, the FlexShade® ZIP XL utilizes an improved Zip 127 headbox with an integrated cradle support system to allow wider widths and minimize deflection. Zipped fabric panel edges are welded and held inside inner channels in the side guide. Cushioning pads dampen the movement of fabric under wind load and panels are held in place. This exterior window shading system prevents heat from entering a building, lowering HVAC costs. In outdoor covered spaces - such as garages, porches, or commercial food service areas - it keeps harsh glare out and protects against wind and insects, creating a more pleasant outdoor experience. For added protection against fabric damage, the FlexShade® Zip XL can be paired with an Obstacle Detection Motor.
