The first day of spring equals Global Shading Day. On this day, we create awareness around the importance of shading, for yourself and for your home. That’s where heat-resistant ZIP screens come in. Discover three reasons why they are essential.

Heat-resistant ZIP screens are an innovative form of awnings that offers several benefits for your home. They are ideal in both residential and commercial settings: it helps you improve your indoor climate, increase your privacy, and save energy.

1. ZIP screens help you improve your indoor climate

One of the main benefits of ZIP screens is that they make it a lot easier for you to keep your indoor climate optimal. These screens are designed to block sunlight, which helps reduce the amount of heat entering your home. By blocking the sunrays before they hit the glass, ZIP screens can really keep your home cool and comfortable, which also helps with the EPC!

2. ZIP screens provide extra privacy

ZIP screens are available in different degrees of transparency. You can choose whether you want a translucent screen or a blackout one. In any case, the screens help with your privacy, because even with translucent screens, you can still look out from the inside, but not in from the outside. That’s why ZIP screens are an excellent alternative to roller shutters.

3. ZIP screens are energy-saving

A third advantage of ZIP screens is their ability to save energy. Because you can lower the screens at the touch of a button to block heat, they are a lot more economical than air conditioning.

By the way, did you know that there are also solar-powered screens? These are called the Brustor Solar screens. A solar panel captures the sunrays and charges the battery. This battery drives the motor of the screen, so you don’t need an electrical connection. So even more economical, because you are using a natural energy source! Over time, this can lead to significant energy savings, which is not only good for your wallet, but also for the environment.

We are fans of ZIP screens; how about you?
