All external blinds, including ZipScreen are not designed to endure very heavy winds. We recommend blinds to be drawn and secured during heavy winds and storms.
We recommend regular cleaning (at least every 3 months) to ensure surfaces are free from dirt, dust and grime.
Use a soft brush to clean the blind, paying particular attention along the side channels to prevent dust and dirt build.
Aluminum extrusions can be cleaned with a soft cloth and warm soapy water or a small amount of mild detergent if required.
