The next generation
Want an externally fitted sunshade product that protects you from blinding sunlight and stops your rooms getting too hot in summer? But still want to see your rooms bathed in gentle daylight? Then MHZ has the ideal solution for you with the new zip_2.0 window awning: it is an external sunshade solution that satisfies the highest of demands and is aligned in its appearance to modern architectural style.
The zip_2.0 window awning uses the zip system, whereby the awning fabric is guided by the zip fastener principle via laterally attached guide rails. Gliders attached to the fabric's seams run in the guide rails provided and hold the fabric taut in such a way that no ripples form. The new zip_2.0 developed by MHZ features a patented glider system. It sees the lateral gliders welded to the fabric at increasingly large distances from each other.
What makes it special is that the arrangement of the sliders is based on the principle of the Fibonacci sequence. As the awning fabric gets rolled up, the gliders lie over one another in such a way that it fits without any crinkling inside the slim, space-saving cassette. It is possible to achieve an extension of up to 3 metres with the zip_2.0 window awning, with a cassette height of just 110 millimetres – while also ensuring that the awning winds out evenly with the fabric held at optimum tension.
The zip_2.0 window awning's guide rails are adjustable on both sides and also make it possible to compensate for any building- or installation-related imprecisions. Any gap between fabric and side profile can thus be prevented. The fabric tension can also be adjusted at the drop rail, which together with the adjustable guide rails ensures consistent tension and great wind stability. There is a choice of two weighted rods, which make the zip_2.0 able to withstand winds of up to resistance category 6 (= 10 on the Beaufort scale - a strong gale).
The zip_2.0 has an intelligent drive system. It automatically recognises any potential obstructions, thus ensuring that the awning always winds in and out safely. An inspection cover and the ability to take the roller tube out from underneath enable it and the drive system to be serviced without removing the cassette. In addition, it is possible to position the Hirschmann coupling inside the cassette. Aesthetic overall appearance, top quality and functional perfection are what you find combined in the new MHZ zip_2.0 window awning.
