ZipWall ZipRail Single Pack ZR1The ZipRail Dual Seal is a great new product that lets you create a dust-tight seal along the entire floor and ceiling without tape. Used with your existing ZipWall® barrier system, the new ZipRail accessory uses our patented twist-locking spring loaded pole and two 4 Foam Rail crossbars mounted top and bottom to push the plastic sheeting tight to the ceiling and the floor. The ZipRail Dual Seal is the fast and easy way to get the best performance from your ZipWall dust barrier system.
The ZipRail Dual Seal is ideal for hospital construction, where dust often contains harmful fungi and mold spores. Its perfect for demolition, drywall work and concrete restoration where fine dust can creep over and under the plastic sheeting. It can be used in abatement as well as mold remediation. And it is also ideal for flood and fire restoration where quick containment setup maximizes profitability.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the recommended space between poles?
- The poles can be spaced 10 to 12 feet apart if there is little or no air movement. The stronger the air movement - such as a site open to the outside - the closer the poles should be placed to one another. If there are strong gusts putting pressure on the plastic sheeting, you may need to bring them as close as five to six feet apart.
- Plastic sheeting: Do ZipWall® products come with plastic Sheeting?
- We do not provide plastic sheeting because of the variety of sizes and thicknesses our customers require. You can usually find the plastic sheeting that is right for your job at paint stores, home centers, hardware stores and specialty stores in your area.
- Plastic sheeting: What size roll should I buy?
- We recommend that you get plastic on a continuous roll that is long enough to reach from the beginning of the wall you are making to the end. With a continuous roll you will not have any breaks or seams that need to be sealed with tape. The width of the plastic should be at least a foot larger than the height of your ceiling where the wall will be installed. For example, if you have an eight foot ceiling, be sure your plastic is at least nine feet wide.
- Plastic sheeting: What is the recommended plastic thickness?
- The keyhole-snapping feature of the head and plate will comfortably accept any plastic up to 8 mils thick. We suggest the use of the lightest plastic your application calls for. The lighter the plastic the easier it is to handle and the less expensive it is. Super light plastic sheeting (under 1 mil), can be hard to control. These super light plastics are generally so light and so full of static electricity that they want to cling to everything.
- What is the ZipWall® jack?
- The jack is the red housing containing the spring and plunger that screws onto the top of the Kit 20 pole. It has two very important functions:
- It holds the plastic to the top of the pole
- Its special non-skid plate presses the plastic to the ceiling, while the spring creates tension between the floor and the ceiling.
- How does ZipWall® system work with negative air?
- The ZipWall system was originally designed for applications using negative air and handles it very well. Because negative air creates pressure against plastic, it tends to tug on the poles. Thus, you may need to place the poles closer together. With moderate pressure you will find that 6 to 8 feet spacing between poles is a comfortable range. For very high pressure situations you may need to place the poles as close as four feet apart.
- Can the ZipWall® poles be used outdoors?
- ZipWall® requires a ceiling. Thus, it can be used on porches and balconies provided they have ceilings. It should not be used if there are high winds which can knock it down. This can cause damage and we suggest caution.
- On what ceiling types does the ZipWall® system work best?
- It works on all types of ceilings, including plaster, drywall, textured or popcorn, and suspended. For suspended ceilings it is important that the plate (on top of the pole) be placed on the grid that holds the ceiling tiles in place.
- What are the working height ranges of the ZipPole?
- The working height range of the ZipPole is from 4'2" to 10'3".
- What do the ZipWall® ZipPoles weigh?
- Each SLP weighs about 1.5 lbs.
- How much weight can the ZipWall® pole hold?
- The weight the poles and jacks can hold depends on the strength of the person tightening the pole, this includes the new SLP. The average person will twist the poles tight enough so the pole can hold 60 to 80 lbs. However, with a stronger tightening twist, a person can produce a hold of about 110 lbs. (Caution: Do not use for holding anything that could fall and cause injury or damage).
