Ricky Richards releases unique striped blockout mesh

Issue 94 January 2024

Ricky Richards has released Outlook Zero Stripes, the only striped visual blockout mesh in Australia.

“The team at Ricky are extremely excited to announce Outlook Zero Stripes; a mesh designed to change the future of traditional canvas awnings. This striped mesh range has an openness of zero percent, offers exceptional weather protection, and provides a complete visual block-out.

“For decades, Outlook has been Australia’s market-leading outdoor mesh. The Ricky team, together with manufacturer’s Phifer Inc., created this incredible collection specifically for the Australian climate. Today Outlook is the most comprehensive outdoor mesh available. 

“With a combination of modern colours, contemporary designs and in a variety of opennesses, textures and matching Colorbond colours, Outlook mesh delivers performance and functionality like no other.

“Now joining the collection, Outlook Zero Stripes is lead-free and has the same key features as other Outlook mesh ranges, including Greenguard Gold certification which certifies low VOC emissions, and Microban antimicrobial treatment to prevent the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew. 

“Not only has Outlook Zero thewidest stipe design on the market, but it is also the only striped visual block out mesh available in Australia. All Outlook products are completely weldable and come in a wide width, which lessens the joins visible in a finished product.

Manufactured using bio-based Dow Ecolibrium plasticisers, Outlook Zero Stripes will save on average one litre of petrol for each outdoor blind or awning created. This unique green technology is exclusive to Phifer Inc. and its sun control textiles.

“Outlook Zero Stripes will extend outdoor spaces for year-round living while helping lower energy costs due to its ability to naturally cool down the area.  Supported with an industry leading full 10-year UV warranty, Outlook Zero Stripes is designed for both commercial and domestic environments and is tested to relevant Australian FR standards.”
