SHY® ZIP® Roller Blinds

This extensive range of roller blinds utilises a clever ZIP® side channel which still allows the fabric to run freely but prevents it from being pulled out of the channels so maintaining excellent light exclusion with dim-out blinds. This clever technology is also useful for guiding blinds which are both narrow and long.

SHY® ZIP® blinds can be installed on vertical windows, sloping windows, tilting windows, rooflights and atria, shaped glazing and even curved areas such as glazed domes, cupolas or barrel vaulted roofs. ZIP® blinds can even pull sideways or upwards (lifting).

SUNFACTA® Roller Blinds

SHY® SUNFACTA® roller blinds are ideal for shading large or small areas. Designed specifically for the demanding contract market a neat headbox fully encloses the roller barrel and operating mechanism.

SHY® SUNFACTA® blinds are made to measure in sizes up to 50m2.Five aluminium headbox sizes and 9 aluminium roller barrels ensure that the ideal hardware choice can be made to support the overall size of the blind and weight of the fabric chosen.

OBSCURA® Roller Blinds

SHY® OBSCURA® roller blinds have the look of standard roller blinds but that is where the similarity ends. Clever features like counter-balancing springs to make it as easy to raise the blind manually as lower it, fixings and brackets for virtually any situation and a maximum overall coverage of 70m2 make this roller blind system anything but standard.

SHY® have designed nine roller barrels from 33mm though to 160mm in diameter to ensure that each blind operates efficiently and effectively no matter what size or which fabric is chosen.


All systems can be manually operated or motorised. With motorised options linking to any building management (BMS) or other automated controls is possible. Standalone hardwired or radio controlled operation are also available.


SHY®’s fabric ranges are proven to work in demanding environments and are flame retardant to British standards. Special coated fabrics including metalised treatments ensure superior heat rejection in the summer months.
