Ziptrak® Awning

Ziptrak® External Blinds protect you from wind, rain, sun, insects and UV. The ingenious spring-balanced design makes it easy to raise or lower the blind to your preferred height. With an elegant but robust best-in-class design, it’s no wonder Ziptrak® is Australia’s favourite outdoor blind.

Keep your home or business cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Reduce your energy bills whilst expanding your living space!

Ziptrak® External Blinds are sometimes referred to as Café Blinds or Patio Blinds. They are ideal to enclose a pergola, deck or verandah.

Ziptrak® External Blinds have easy spring assisted operation. They simply slide up or down like a window and can stop anywhere along the track.

Standard Awning

The Ziptrak® blind is held using a cordura tape often called Kedar. This Kedar is very strong and can withstand a lot of force which means the Ziptrak Fabric is held tightly in the channel. Advantages of the Ziptrak Kedar is that you can tighten the fabric more than other systems. Also, the round Kedar runs more smoothly and jams less in windy conditions when a Motor is used.

Other blinds are held into the channel by a small zip. Disadvantages of the zip mainly relate to the zip not being as forgiving to house movement, poor installation, or wind pressure on the fabric. The zip has a tendency to jam or stick more easily when under wind pressure. This can make it stick more when motorised.

Hold Down Locks – Centre Release

Ziptrak® blinds are also the only system that allows you to lock and unlock the blind from both the inside and outside. Ziptrak® blinds have a centre-lock-release, which allows you to unlock both the left and right locks simultaneously from the middle.

Hold Down Latch

Other blinds only offer a slide bolt bottom lock. It can be generally used inside or outside but some installations restrict the placement. This can mean that a user needs to go outside of the patio or verandah area to operate and lift the blinds.

Can be motorised. Motorised options including the SolarSmart 100% solar power motorised operation. Can be motorised

So happy with the service and quality. My panel glide suits my french doors and windows perfectly. The shutters in my bedrooms look amazing. Thank you to the team at Lakeview. Installed on time, everytime.

Megan Boardman


My shutters we installed yesterday = perfection. Love, love, love them!

100% recommend Lakeview Blinds.

Hillary Maccaruthur


Lakeview Blinds at Warners Bay put blinds in our new home. I am very happy with the service and the time we were told it would take. Thank you very much, it was just the last touch to making our home look great.

Christy Standen


This business provided me with contacts for an alternate product even though at this point, it did not involve a sale for them. I would definitely consider using them in the future for blind and shutter products.

Lyn Pritchard


I recommend Lakeview Blinds to all my friends and family. Each time I have a visitor they always complement the beautiful shutters in my house! You couldn't beat the service unless it was with the quality of the shutters! My daughter has just recently ordered some for her own house because she loved mine so much.
