Tension Zip

Pergola and Skylight shade system

When you need an overhead solar screen that stands up to the wind just as well as it provides shelter from the sun, opt for the SummerSpace® FlexShade® Tension Zip Pergola and Skylight Shade System! Extremely tolerant to high winds, the Tension Zip Solar Screen System is built with a unique side channel fabric retention system. This track keeps a secure hold on the fabric to keep it from billowing, even in strong gales.

Our Tension Zip Solar Screens are available up to 16’ wide and 20’ long. Even better, they can be nested to cover large areas and they can be controlled as a group or individually.

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.

Block out the sun, regulate the temperature, and control glare, without ever worrying that the wind will damage your screens – with the FlexShade Tension Zip.
