Exterior shades can offer a multitude of benefits. The Renson® ZipShade­® by Roll-A-Shade® can be installed in a variety of applications, the most common being on the exterior of a building and on a patio. This system can also be installed on the interior using blackout material to create privacy when complete light blockage is necessary.

See the Idea Center for more applications.


The ZipShade® is equipped with one of the most advanced zipper tracks in the industry resulting in superior wind ratings. When in the closed position, the ZipShade® is insect-proof and is operational in winds up to 80mph*. Utilizing the ZipShade® in projects has many benefits including lower utility bills when the shade is installed on the exterior of the building and increased revenue when the shade is installed on a patio.


When placed on the exterior of a window, the Roll-A-Shade® ZipShade® helps avoid overheating by filtering the direct sunlight that enters an interior space. This can result in decreased cooling and air conditioning costs and can reduce overall energy consumption by utilizing natural daylight. Depending on the type of fabric selected, different degrees of heat-resistance are possible. The ZipShade® can greatly reduce the use of artificial lighting while also reducing heat gain by not allowing sun rays to penetrate the glass exterior of the building.
