BOSTON, MA – ZipWall introduces its newest dust barrier product designed to speed door coverage. The ZipDoor kit is ideal for residential or commercial applications, particularly with high numbers of doorways. Featuring ZipWall’s new double-sided tape and heavy duty, glued-in zippers, the ZipDoor installs in under one minute to provide a complete dust barrier. Made of 4 mil plastic sheeting, the ZipDoor is available nationwide in standard (doors up to 3’x7’) and commercial (doors up to 4’x8’) sizes through retail and online dealers. The commercial door is also fire retardant.
“Doors are obviously one of the most problematic areas for dust containment, especially at sites like hospitals and commercial buildings,” said ZipWall President Jeff Whittemore. “Because one person can install it in less than a minute, the ZipDoor can save time and money on every job.”
The ZipDoor’s two pre-installed, heavy-duty zippers are glued on for maximum sheer strength. Sewn-in zippers perforate the sheeting and can tear when pulled. The zippers also extend to the floor, eliminating the tripping hazard of a hatch-style door. When open, the door flap rolls up and stows easily in the provided flap hooks.
Attaching the ZipDoor to the doorframe is ZipWall’s new proprietary double-sided tape. ZipWall tape uses a paper carrier, so it tears easily, no scissors or utility knife needed. The side applied to the doorframe performs like painter’s tape. The other side features an aggressive adhesive that holds the plastic sheeting. Despite its high hold, the adhesive gives the user up to an hour to reposition the doorway before fully bonding.
“Because it’s so quick to install and because it’s a zipper door, we expect the ZipDoor kit to outperform the door coverage specified in the EPA PPR Rule,” said Whittemore. “Compliance will be easier than ever with the ZipDoor, especially on jobs with lots of doors to be covered.”
ZipWall manufactures and sells ZipWall Barrier System Products, designed specifically to aid dust containment in construction, restoration, remediation, abatement, and painting settings. For more information, visit zipwall.com, or call 800-718-2255 for product sales.
