Every year, the iF DESIGN AWARD identifies outstanding design, its relevance for business and everyday life and awards one of the most important seals of quality in the world. This year, our product ZIP Solar was awarded by this prestigious title.
ZIP SOLAR is the most advanced shutter solution in our offer. It uses a photovoltaic panel across the entire width of the cassette for power supply. The integrated battery bank allows for trouble-free motor operation, even in cloudy weather. It does not require a power connection, so its installation on the window takes only a few minutes.
The ZIP Pro system is designed in such a way that it allows the bottom bar to hide in the cassette when the fabric is fully rolled up. This significantly increases the aesthetics of the system and makes it completely invisible when exposed.
We have designed new bottom bar caps from scratch to improve their operation and assembly. Special tabs position the fabric and prevent it from moving. Their shape prevents the fabric from wrinkling, thanks to which it is perfectly flat, even near the assembly places
It is important for us that the sunshading systems we design and manufacture are not only easy to use for their users, but also for installers and people who maintain and service them.
Our own production line of photovoltaic micropanels allows us to create solar products tailored to individual needs. Thanks to this, each element of the ZIP Solar system is unique, just like the external roller shutter that you install in your window.
The snap system is used not only when assembling the tube, but also the cassette and two-piece side guides. As a result, their assembly is quick and stable, and can be carried out by one installer.
We use the same bearing and positioning components for each of the system sizes from 85 to 125. Thanks to this, both the production process as well as assembly and service is much simpler, and our partners can reduce the number of service components that they have in stock. It also eliminates the risk of production errors, ensuring that each of the ZIP systems will work properly and for a long time.
The minimal deformation of the tube means that the fabric rolls up evenly on it without causing wrinkles. This allows the production of very wide systems without the risk that the fabric will be creased.
Aluminum does not deform and holds the zipper firmly, stretching the zip fabric and ensuring its resistance to impacts and strong winds. Inlay is cushioned in the guide thanks to the TPU cover. The movement of the zipper in the aluminum inlay is noiseless, which increases the comfort of its use.
We use the same aluminium pipes for each of the system sizes from 85 to 125. Thanks to this, both the production process as well as assembly and service is much simpler, and our partners can reduce the number of service components that they have in stock. It also eliminates the risk of production errors, ensuring that each of the ZIP systems will work properly and for a long time.
When designing the system, we focused on adjusting it to any window. Additional, specially designed spacers will help to install the screen where it requires an increased distance
Our own production line of photovoltaic micropanels allows us to create solar products tailored to individual needs.
We use our expertise in the production of micro photovoltaic panels to offer the world’s first shutter solution equipped with a customized photovoltaic panel. The panel, unlike currently used solutions, covers the entire surface of the cassette, creating an aesthetic tailor-made solution.
