Unlike most similar blinds and brands, Tulip’s Zebra Shades are Anti-Static, thanks to our duo roller system which we use two seperate pieces of fabric that do not cause friction between each other.

Our Sturdy Dual Fabric Tube Clutch is fitted to dual 28mm high strength aluminium fabric roller tubes and all of of our blinds components are constructed using quality components.

All of our blinds are made to measure to your exact requirements by our fitting team before being manufactured for fitting. Our Zebra Shades come pre-aligned and adjusted to your window height and are designed to automatically clear standard window panels.

All of our blinds come fitted inside your home. However, should you need to take them down and rehang them later, you can easily do so with our high quality  brackets which can be Top-Fixed or Face-Fixed to your window recess.

Child safety is so important and could save a life if you have little . All of our Zebra Shades come with the option of Cleats, P-Clips or Chain Breakers.
