In a market crowded with outdoor blind and system options, one solution is proving itself to be the clear leader: Urban Track™.
Aussies have always loved their backyards. The days of the Hills Hoist taking centre stage have moved aside and backyards have become a retreat, an extension of the indoors, a place to enjoy endless summer nights around the barbeque and cool winter evenings warming up around a fire.
From market umbrellas and shade sails to pergolas and patios, there are a myriad ways to make the most of backyard spaces. Track guided blind systems are becoming increasingly popular to enclose outdoor spaces and maximise living areas and, with several options available, one system is establishing itself as the premier choice for functionality, aesthetics, and cost effectiveness.
URBAN TRACK™ external track guided blind system was designed and developed in Australia to ensure superior performance under the harsh conditions. Providing all season climate control, Urban Track is an easy-to-use, smart, slim line tracking system that helps you save on energy bills. Urban Track is a sturdy system, with components made from aluminium and stainless steel so they won’t rust, and plastic components that are fiberglass infused for greater strength and UV resistance.
3 TYPES OF OPERATION
Available in 3 types of operation, Urban Track blinds can be locked off in any position and the crank and spring operated systems are available with a unique, patented central locking system. This unique central locking mechanism is accessible from inside and outside.
