Welcome to the home of Ziptrak in the Northern Rivers District.
We at Undercover Canvas have a full range of all your Ziptrak parts and accessories as well as being able to supply and install if needed all your ziptrak requirements.
Ziptrak track guided blind system has specially designed slotted tracks in which the blind glides smoothly and easily, stopping at any position. The blind can be secured and locked in the down position to guard against high winds and UV – no zippers or buckles required, it’s that simple.
Ziptrak® stops weather entering around the sides of the blinds due to its unique 30mm side track combined with the fabric being welded onto a “side tape” with a bead which slips inside the grooved channel, The result is a complete seal to keep out the unwanted elements.
