SI’s Zen 2 motorized outdoor shading system recognized by CEDIA as an outstanding new product for the custom integration market.

AUSTIN, TX (November 17, 2021) — Screen Innovations (SI), premier manufacturer and supplier of design-forward optical screen and shade materials and technologies, received the coveted CEDIA Best Product Award 2021 for its new, revolutionary motorized outdoor shading solution, Zen 2. Applauded by the CEDIA judging panel for its technical excellence, innovation, and benefits to home technology professionals, Zen 2 exemplifies a winning combination of style and substance, the CI industry’s first décor-minded motorized shading system for outdoor environments. Zen 2 features a customizable motorized cassette and a choice of shading fabric to effortlessly transform decks, gazebos, patios, and other outdoor areas into comfortable, beautiful living spaces.

Accommodating areas up to 25 feet wide and 16 feet tall, Zen 2 includes everything needed for a complete installation including mounting hardware, a motorized shade cassette, and a wide selection of popular outdoor shading fabrics. Zen 2 installs in half the time of other outdoor shading systems with its unique snap-in tube and hidden bracket attachment. The cassette can be pre-installed, the tube snapped into place, affording a simple, hands-free installation process. The zipper track system provides integrators twice the freedom of other track systems, simplifying the specification and installation process.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from CEDIA for Zen 2, a labor of love thoughtfully designed and engineered to cater to the needs of integrators interested in capitalizing on the growing outdoor entertainment trend,” says SI CEO, Ryan Gustafson. “Without question, Zen 2 will make integrators’ lives much easier, all while attracting new business from architects, home designers, and end-users with a beautifully designed, automated outdoor shade. We truly feel that if integrators, designers, and homeowners are happy with a product, we’ve hit a home systems homerun, and this award from CEDIA is validation.”
