Beautifully engineered, Screen Innovations’ Zen 2 motorized shading solution turns outdoor areas into stunning year-round living spaces.

AUSTIN, TX — Screen Innovations (SI), the CEDIA industry’s fastest-growing manufacturer of motorized and manual window coverings, brings beautiful motorized shading to the outdoors with the easy-install, design-friendly solution, Zen 2. Developed to blend into outdoor environments and install in half the time as other motorized shade systems, Zen 2 boasts an elegant, customizable, architecturally-friendly design that transforms decks, gazebos, patios, and limitless other outdoor areas into comfortable, stylish living spaces. 

“Systems integrators across the country indicated greater consumer interest in having a comfortable space outside to relax and entertain friends and family. Zen 2 caters to this trend by allowing homeowners to simply push a button to enclose an area with a beautiful shade that offers protection against the elements and insects,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson. “It dramatically extends the enjoyment of the outdoors, complements its surrounding environment, and adds valuable square footage to any home— everything the systems integrators’ customers are requesting.” 

The Zen 2 motorized cassette accommodates a wide selection of outdoor shading fabrics, up to 25 feet wide and 16 feet tall, is available in several designer colors, or can be primed to paint for a perfect color match with the surrounding surface. Plus, Zen 2 installs in half the time of other outdoor shading systems with its unique snap-in tube and hidden bracket attachment. The cassette may be preinstalled and the tube snapped into place, affording a simple installation process. Zen 2’s zipper track system provides integrators twice the freedom of other track systems, simplifying the specification and installation process.

Zen 2 integrates with the latest smart home control systems through wireless Zigbee 3.0, RTS, or wired 485-based connection; this enables the movement of the shades to be choreographed with lighting, AV equipment, and more. Home systems integrators can use SI software to synchronize the movement of multiple shades and to open and close to several preset positions. 

“After interviewing many integrators, we realized simplicity of installation is a top priority, next to design. Without question, Zen 2 streamlines integrators’ time and effort, while capitalizing on the growing demand for outdoor living areas.” Gustafson continues, “We truly feel that if integrators, designers, and homeowners are happy with a product, we’ve hit a home systems homerun.”
