FlexShade Tension ZIP

Outdoor Tensioned Shading System for Angled or Horizontal Structures

Put our ZIP technology to work at any angle and create the perfect outdoor living space with the FlexShade Tension ZIP shading system. The ZIP feature captures the fabric's edge, resulting in more secure fabric retention and improved light control. The unit can be installed at any angle from horizontal to vertical thanks to tension cords in the side channels. Control sun glare on existing pergolas, patio rooftops, and other angled windows to make your outdoor space your favorite place to be.
