The Markilux 660 and 620 vertical blinds with the new ZIP system are remarkably strong, stable and quiet in windy conditions.
The 660 Zip & 620 ZIP Configurations
The ZIP System also enhances the visual appeal of the installed blind by removing the gap between the awning fabric and the guide tracks. Elimination of this gap also keeps light from penetrating into the room, ideal for bedrooms or meeting rooms where darkness is important. Only Markilux provides the engineering innovation to deliver a vertical cassette window blind with the following features and benefits:
- Closed drive-belt system delivers ideal protection from sun, wind and inquisitive glances
- Combination of closed drive-belt system and special vario-belts ensure optimum cover tension at all times
- Optionally fitted with an integrated fly screen in its own cassette at the bottom
- Cassette is made of strong extruded aluminum, is only 4.3″ high and 3.7″ deep and completely encloses the fabric and fly screen for full protection
The 620 ZIP is a non-tensioned version of the 680 that is suitable when higher winds are not a consideration.
The Markilux ZIP System
The ZIP system provides a completely closed appearance for a more refined look to the installed vertical blind. Elimination of the gap between the cover and guide tracks also provides the strongest wind resistance, which can be guaranteed to Beaufort force 8 (39-46 mph), as well as reduced noise in windy conditions.
But to understand how remarkably strong the ZIP system is in high wind conditions, please view these short videos of the wind tunnel testing of the 620 ZIP in both the frontal and side wind tests. The awning remained fully in tact up to winds of 125 mph (200 kph)–well beyond anything your awning would have to endure!
