End Retention

Zip Tex - Solar or Insect Screen with end retention system

 
What separates the Zip Tex from the standard Solar Screen? The Zip Tex End Retention System! A small coil style zipper is the key component of this end retention system, providing a smooth, quiet operation with no binding or bunching of the roll. The Zip Tex End Retention System secures the screen in the tracks, firmly eliminating those pesky bugs from finding their way in. This feature also ensures total shading coverage track to track.
 
Alutech United, Inc. has taken its expertise and experience in roll shutter manufacturing and coupled this with the latest innovations in sun control products in order to design the ZIP TEX rolling solar screen. Through manufacturing efficiencies and component overlap, the Zip Tex system utilizes the best features of a rolling shutter, Alutech's large inventory, and improved rolling screen features to deliver the very best rolling screen product in the marketplace.

Wind resistant!
Our unique end retention option ensures wind resistance and operabilty using a buit-in dampening system. Zip Tex is equipped with a special side rail insert that allows the screen to flex under wind pessure, but keeps the screen anchored in the rails. The Zip Tex will keep your screens in the rails at any position, fully closed, fully open or any position in between.

FAQ
How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?
Special switches can operate up to two shutters. Somfy’s RTS or IGC technology could, virtually, operate an unlimited number of shutters with only a single switch! The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. Lastly, we can incorporate the technology into most home automation and z-wave systems.
When should I use a Motor with Gear Override?
If power is lost, a motorized shutter or screen with gear override can be manually opened and retracted. 
This is a good option for areas prone to frequent power outages. Motorized shutters with a gear override option are recommended and sometimes required for any opening that may be used as an emergency exit.
