Having dust spread to rooms not part of a renovation is every homeowner and contractor’s nightmare. Plastic sheets tacked to walls, ceilings, and floors with tape or staples take time to set up, often require standing on a ladder, don’t always remain in place, and may damage surfaces.
But ZipWall’s® Dust Barrier System, which works well in both residential and commercial construction projects, helps contractors keep premises clean and homeowners happy. Mark and Mina Fies of Synergy Design & Construction were very familiar with ZipWall’s system and opted to use it during their whole-home remodel, our 2021 Model ReModel project. The system helped tremendously as the Fies lived in the home during construction.
ZipWall, an Arlington, Mass.-based company founded in 1997, makes an extensive line of products that work together to create a tight dust-free jobsite.
Projects start with ZipWall’s spring-loaded, twist-locking telescoping poles, which are used to set-up a dust barrier in just a few minutes using plastic sheeting or ZipWall’s reusable barrier sheets. Heavy-duty, self-adhesive zippers or self-closing magnetic doors are then added to the barrier, allowing the contractor and homeowner to easily enter and exit, so the system doesn’t have to be taken down at the end of each workday. Accessories are available to tightly seal the barrier along the ceiling, floor and walls without using tape.
By keeping out dust, the rest of the clean-up in most residential jobs is easier and faster.
ZipWall wants to make it easy for customers to learn how to use its products by offering training videos with tips and best practices on its zipwall.com website. If pros have more questions, a customer service manager is available, and an online job planner tool generates a list of recommended products.
No dust also offers another huge benefit—happier customers who are more likely to provide referrals and excellent online reviews. www.zipwall.com.
