We love how the shades invite natural light while keeping elements, breezes, and sun glares at bay.

Vertilux Zipper Track Shade System’s Unique Features

Exquisitely engineered, the patented design of the Zipper Track Shade System from Vertilux features a strong, reinforced zipper down each side to secure the blind to the track.

These shades are rated for 65 mph winds which makes them perfect window shades for San Diego homes when bad weather rolls in or the Santa Ana wind blows. The bottom rail holds the shade tension while a felt buffer at the base compresses against the ground to create a seal against breezes, dust, and bugs.

Ultra-sonically welded, the innovative design of the Exterior Shade Track system by Mariak, features double welded corners and durable zippers down each side of the shade for strong tension.

Rated to resist wind speeds more than 35MPH, these shades are the best exterior window coverings for residents in inland areas. The Mariak model also features a bush guard at the bottom to repel insects, dirt, and debris that could blow into your home.

Specialized Functions of the Shade Systems

The Vertilux Zipper Track Shading System and the Mariak Exterior Shade Track System are weatherproofed motorized window treatments that function both indoors and outdoors.

The motorized cassette at the top of the shade neatly rolls the shades up or down, and can easily be controlled both manually or by remote control. The fabric, while tough and hardy, is lightly opaque to offer privacy. The weave of the shade is crafted to allow in the sunlight in while reducing harsh glare.

The fabric is available in a variety of textures, colors, and widths. It can easily be customized to fit your space size and style preferences.
