Optimum fabric appearance thanks to outstanding technology

The patented MHZ glider system facilitates even winding and guarantees an optimum, aesthetic fabric appearance. The arrangement of the gliders follows the Fibonacci sequence, a principle that is widespread in nature and which, for example, flowers make use of. Thus the fabric fits in space-saving manner into the slim cassette and the gliders gently slide one after the other into the guide rails. With the zip_2.0, rolled up awning fabrics full of ruffles are a thing of the past – the perfect conditions for long fabric life!

Fabric range and types

Different weave structures, diverse colours and the choice of your desired level of transparency provide extensive possibilities when it comes to configuring your personal zip_2.0 window awning.

Operation and installation

The integrated motor makes using the sun protection system easy, as it automatically recognises any resistance. Safe and reliable operation of your window awning is thus guaranteed. Any imprecisions can be offset during installation by up to 3 millimetres on each side thanks to the two-part, adjustable guide rails. The Hirschmann plug makes connecting the power supply easy and provides for quick setting of the end position. For servicing, the fabric tube can also be easily taken out via the service hatch.

The cassette sizes

The zip_2.0 is available in 11 and 15 centimetre cassette sizes and with type S or M drop bars. When retracted the type S drop bar is completely inside the cassette, which produces a flush look. The textile awning can be up to 4.8 metres wide and up to as much as 6 metres high. With the large cassette it is also possible to provide shade to areas of 20 square metres.

High-quality materials, meanwhile, give the awning exceptional stability: depending on the size of the drop bar an awning with a type M bar will withstand hurricane-like gales of up to wind resistance class 6 (10 on the Beaufort scale).
