Leave the weather “out there”
Keeping out the elements has never been this easy, the Zipscreen awning with side retention channels is the ideal solution for sealing out whatever nature has to throw at you. Utilising a patented Zip system and adjustable side-tracks the Zipscreen is the perfect answer for closing in your alfresco area for both residential or commercial use. The slim lines of the extruded Aluminium headbox blend perfectly into modern architecture and help to maintain your choice of material when rolled away.
The Zipscreen will not only stop heat, glare and UV light* from entering your Alfresco area or Home. Moreover, we have found another fantastic reason many people buy Zipscreen – they help prevent insects from intruding alfresco areas and homes which may otherwise be spoiled by uninvited, winged intruders. 🦟🦟
Entertaining guests ‘outside’ will never be great until you’re Covered.
Zipscreen: Leaders from the start
The Covered Group have manufactured literally thousands upon thousands of “Zip-style” systems (side-retention systems) over the last couple of decades. Since the very first Zipscreen, we knew this was something special – something exciting. Due to its simplicity through clever engineering, the Zipscreen side-retention awning system has risen to become the crowd favourite for homeowners, renovators, architects, hotels, bars and restaurants but especially installers. The ease & flexibility, as well as the many installation types available, make the zipscreen a reliable and quality-driven product. You can expect to enjoy your Zipscreen for decades of unwavering operation with minimal service and cleaning required.
If size is the issue and. you want to go big then see here for our Zipscreen Extreme. The Zipscreen extreme is exactly that – extreme. With spans up to 7m in width, the Zipscreen Extreme is guaranteed to impress… the sky is almost the limit.
Most customers are aware of the huge difference made to an alfresco area by simply adding a Zipscreen awning – especially post-installation. What many don’t know (until we tell them) is that in wintertime, they are incredibly effective at creating a warm, cosy and comfortable space. It’s really simple: when you enclose (or trap) the air inside of an alfresco there is a vastly reduced amount of ‘air-transfer’. This means you can heat (or even cool down during summer) the trapped air to create a comfortable and enjoyable space.
Note: Zipscreen awnings are capable of holding back mild winds but are not designed to act as a wind-breaker. If you need something that can withstand incredible winds, please get in touch with a covered rep and we will be able to assist further.

Zipscreen, simply the best choice as an outdoor screening solution for any outdoor alfresco area or window. Designed especially with alfresco dining areas in mind; pergolas, verandahs, and balconies receive year-round privacy and protection from the sun, rain and insects. As a durable alternative to traditional facade awnings & roller shutters, they are ideal for home or office windows, providing a sleek and secure solution. Modern buildings will still benefit from adding a Zipscreen as they assure reduced heat gains and energy bills during the warmer months. With widths of up to 5.8 metres (7m with Zipscreen Extreme) or drops up to 4 metres, you can add an external solution to fit almost any area.
*The amount of UV light that can penetrate your zipscreen system is strongly dependent on the fabric type and fabric colour. See our fabric page for more information.
