Nova Shades retractable screens (or sometimes called outdoor blinds, patio screens, cafe screens) are the perfect answer to creating a warm, comfortable space all year round. They provide shade and protection from UV, wind and rain, allowing natural light through to enhance your home or business – patio, deck, customer eating area or children play space.

At Nova Shades, we specialise in Ziptrak, the sleekest, sophisticated and user-friendly outdoor screen you will find.


  • 20 times easier than a hand rolled system
  • 10 times faster than a crank handle system
  • Simple to use – just lift the central handle which automatically releases the side clips and the spring loaded drum does the work for you
  • Available in clear or tinted pvc or mesh
  • The screen runs up and down the side tracks therefore there are no gaps for the wind and rain to sneak through
  • Brackets and side tracks can be colour powder coated to match the surrounding joinery
  • Motorised options available with remote control
  • No zip mechanisms – zips tend to break down easily under horizontal tension of the screens, wind and UV
  • Ziptrak screens keep areas warm in winter and cool in summer – so you can enjoy outdoors no matter what the season! Pull down and push up! It’s that easy to protect yourself from the elements with Ziptrak® track guided system.

Specially designed tracks on both sides of the blind enable the fabric to glide smoothly and easily – stopping anywhere you want! Ziptrak® screens 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. Easy-to-use Ziptrak® track guided system locks the fabric into special tracks, with no gaps at either side to secure against flapping. Its quick and easy “pull-down, push-up” action takes out all the hard work of regular screens and leaves you with an elegant screen that enhances the look and feel of your business.
