by Brianna Crandall — April 26, 2019 — If you have a renovation or remediation project coming up where you need to make sure the dust doesn’t reach adjoining occupied spaces, ZipWall just introduced the new ZipWall Span Kit. The Span Kit contains everything facilities managers (FMs) and remodeling and restoration professionals need to seal a barrier up to 16 feet wide along the ceiling, walls and floor, or a barrier up to 32 feet wide along the ceiling and walls.
Available exclusively on the ZipWall website, the Span Kit includes six FoamRail Span Adjustable Tapeless Seals, one SideBridge Wall Mount 4-Pack, Floor Adaptors for every size ZipWall pole, four Crown Molding Adaptors and a carry bag. The Span Kit is part of the ZipWall Dust Barrier System and works with all ZipWall poles (not included).
According to ZipWall, sealing a barrier with the Span Kit is faster, easier, and safer than using tape. The kit takes minutes to set up and does not require ladders to assemble. It is reusable and leaves no damage. And unlike tape, which is prone to peeling off, the Span Kit maintains the integrity of the seal, adds the company.
Barrier integrity is critical for restoration professionals and for remodeling in sensitive spaces such as healthcare facilities, schools, restaurants, hotels, and any other buildings that remain occupied during interior construction.
ZipWall points out that OSHA’s recent construction industry silica regulations have raised more awareness to the harmful health effects of silica dust, prompting contractors and remodeling companies to take additional dust control measures.
The company also reminds that residential remodeling is a competitive industry, and careful dust control is a differentiating practice, often leading to better customer reviews and increased new business referrals. Roy Wood, owner of high-end remodeling company Woodway Renovations in Arlington, MA, reportedly uses ZipWall barriers on every job. Wood remarked:
The FoamRail Span is my insurance! Back when I was using tape, I was constantly worried about it peeling off, letting dust into my client’s home. But with the Span, I sleep well at night knowing my barrier is intact.
Jeff Whittemore, founder and CEO of ZipWall, stated:
The ZipWall Span Kit is designed to take the guesswork out of sealing a dust barrier. The kit contains all the necessary components contractors need to create a tight seal in minutes — even around obstacles such as base radiators and crown molding — and doesn’t require ladders or tape.
