Zip Blinds Introduction
Zip Blinds (also known as Zip Track Blinds) have been increasingly popular in Singapore over the last few years.
Many homeowners like to use Zip Blinds to convert their outdoor space into an indoor one to enjoy & relax in peace. This helps to extend the living space greatly.
In their newly reclaimed space: some use their laptops to work or play, some would like to enjoy a relaxing tea-break or some will enjoy alfresco dining. What would you do? 🙂
While the Zip Blinds filter light, reduce glare, heat, and offers privacy, they can also help to keep the air-conditioned cool air in and block out 95% rain!
It’s a great alternative to manual outdoor roller blinds for your balcony, patio, terrace or service yard.
Unlike the manual outdoor rollers, Zip blinds do not need the extra steel cables (used to prevent outdoor roller blinds from flapping.) Instead, Zip Blinds offer a very clean and sleek look by using the side track guides.
There are no more gaps between two blinds and with the blinds closed, you can now enjoy full protection against flying insects.
Check out actual homes’ zip blinds pics & videos in the gallery, and imagine how the Zip Blind can transform your outdoor space!
Note: Please understand that the Zip Blind system is not a 100% air-tight nor water-tight solution. It is a lightweight structure and should not be expected to perform like windows/doors for full protection.

Important Notes on Zip Blinds
If you have not used Zip Blinds before, there are a couple of pointers to take note. Please click on them to learn more.
Zip Blinds use perforated sunscreen mesh fabrics to filter out the strong sun glare and heat.
These fabrics have tiny holes and allow you to enjoy outside scenery view during daytime, while providing you with privacy as people standing outside cannot see in.
The opposite happens as night falls, you will not be able to view outside and if your ceiling light is turned on, someone standing outside can view inwards.
In summary, the “dark side” will be able to view the “bright side”.
Zip Blinds fabrics are perforated with very tiny holes (1% perforation). They can still block normal rain splashes well. But when strong wind blows the rain towards the blind, a bit of rain water will still seep through the tiny holes. Please be mindful that the Zip Blind system is not a 100% watertight solution.
A normal 3-pin socket power point is required. Cable casing will be laid to the nearest point. If there is no existing power socket in the balcony, you will need to hire your own certified electrician to fix up one point.
As the fabric is an outdoor mesh by nature, it will naturally have minor imperfections due to its flexible weave material. Crease lines & minor “distortions” in the mesh are to be expected, especially in areas near the side tracks. This is especially true as the blind has been rolled up during storage & transport.
Leave the blind down for a few days, over time & under sunlight, some creases/distortions may disappear while others remain. This is not a cause for concern and is considered standard.
One should NOT expect the zip blind to have a solid smooth surface as the fabric will expand & contract when subject to rain, sun & wind over time.

Take a $1.5M condo for example. Assume the balcony is 2.5m length by 1.5m width, which works out to be 40 sq ft floor area for the balcony.
If the whole condo floor area was 1000 sq ft, that balcony space would have cost about $60k, which is a pretty expensive outdoor space being put to waste. If your balcony is larger, it will have cost even more!
