SHY® ZIP® cassette roller blinds
The ZIP® cassette roller blinds feature a welded zip system down each side of the fabric that is retained in a side channel. This arrangement offers virtually total light exclusion. They are available chain operated, crank opearted and motorised.
Through their knowledge and experience SHY® can produce roller blinds that are small, large, very large, straight, shaped, narrow, curved, vertical, horizontal or angled.
SHY Zip blinds
SHY® ZIP® blinds are flexible, easy to operate and extremely durable. Developed and proven through years of successful installations – often in very challenging situations – they achieve a standard virtually unsurpassed by any other roller blind screen system on the UK market today.
The heart of the system is SHY®’s specially designed zipper ribbon which is welded to the edges of the blind fabric to create a super-strong, flat, join.
The zipper ribbon is securely held in a shaped plastic side channel housed in an aluminium sied channel. This allows the blind to run freely and quietly but prevents the fabric from being pulled out of the channel.
With all SHY® ZIP® blinds, the hem bar of the blind is also permanently fixed to the fabric and a brush strip prevents light ingress when the blind runs into the optional bottom channel.
Excellent light seal
SHY® ZIP® blinds’ side guides trap cloth in the side channels achieving an excellent light seal. The optional bottom channel receives the hem bar with brush strip, which reduces light ingress around the base of the blind. The cassette headbox, with fitting possibilities though the box itself, also minimises light gaps around the head of the blind.
With SHY® ZIP®’s fully cassetted system air is trapped between the glazing and the blind fabric providing additional insulation. In fact the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) guidance on the thermal resistance of blinds states that a fully cassetted blind with a low emissivity fabric is 8.8 times more effective that a standard roller blind.
With the blind fully lowered, the air trapped between the glazing and blind fabric helps to reduce noise in a similar way to double glazing.
Good wind resistance
The robust SHY® ZIP® guides prevent the cloth from pulling or blowing out of the side channels, even when fitted externally.

Hand or electric operation
Neat and Stylish
With a compact headbox which contains the cloth cassette and operating mechanism plus slim, aluminium side and bottom channels, SHY® ZIP® blinds can provide an attractive complement to the surrounding decor. The aluminium hardware can be anodised or powder coated to any RAL/BS colour.
Easy access for maintenance
Maintenance access (for all but the smallest, 65mm square head box) is via an easily removed front cover on the headbox. This can be removed for maintenance while the blind is in position.
Also available from SHY®
SHY® Sunfacta cassette roller blind systems are ideal for shading large or small areas. Designed specifically for the demanding contract market, the roller barrel and operating mechanism are fully enclosed in a neat headbox.
With five headboxes and nine roller barrel sizes available, SHY® Sunfacta blinds can be installed on windows of many sizes - from standard dimensions up to extremely large areas of bespoke glazing.
SHY® Obscura roller blinds have the look of standard roller blinds - but that is where the similarity ends!
This roller blind system is anything but standard: it can provide maximum overall coverage of 70m2; has fixings/brackets for virtually any situation and clever features like counter-balancing springs, making it as easy to raise an Obscura blind manually as to lower it.
