Tension Zip Screen – Electronic

Use the FlexShade Tension Zip to provide sun shelter over your pergola, open porch, or skylights. Then, with the push of a button, roll up your retractable solar screen when you don’t need it. The Tension Zip is a sleek, discreet system that you’ll hardly know is there when it’s closed.
