FlexShade ZIP XL

Outdoor Shading System for Sizes up to 25 feet wide

FlexShade ZIP XL uses an improved Zip 127 Headbox with an integrated cradle support system to allow wider widths and minimize deflection. The ZIP feature captures the fabric's edge, resulting in secure fabric retention and improved light control. Cushioning pads dampen fabric movement under wind load and panels are held in place. As an exterior window shading system, it lowers HVAC expenses by preventing heat from entering a building. In outdoor covered spaces—such as garages, porches, or commercial food service areas—it filters harsh glare and protects against wind and insects, creating a pleasant outdoor experience.
