Creates extra tight seals without using tape.
Information about the EPA's New Renovation, Repair & Painting Regulations (RPP)
Imagine how it would feel to have a contractor run duct tape across your perfect ceiling, or a drive in a row of staples or screws just to create a tight seal with plastic sheeting?
With the Foam Rail™ cross bars you'll never have to find out. The Foam Rail™ cross bar works with the SLP™ or Kit 20 poles to create a virtually airtight seal by pushing its foam edge against the plastic and ceiling. Each rail is 5 feet long and is made of strong, lightweight aluminum. The spring loaded pole holds it in place and it takes just seconds to install with out damaging a thing.
- An SLP™ or Kit 20 pole is required for each Foam Rail™ cross bar. These poles are not included in the FR2.
- No pole is needed if using the Rails with the Side Clamp™ wall mount. These clamps are also not included with the FR2.
- The T-Clip is used to mount the poles anywhere along the Rail. Each FR2 comes with 2 T-Clips.
- The Foam Rail™ cross bars push the plastic or barrier material against the ceiling but do not hold the material securely in place. You must set up your barrier using the ZipWall® poles placed 8 to 10 feet apart. This makes an incredibly secure and tightly sealed barrier.
- Plastic Sheeting is not included, a wide variety of plastic sheeting & poly tarps are available seperately
- 2 5' Foam Rail cross bars
- 2 T-clips
EPA's New Renovation, Repair & Painting Regulations (RPP)
Are you prepared for the new requirements? Regulation compliance by contractors & firms for the renovation, repair and painting activities of target housing or child-occupied facilities built before 1978 for compensation takes effect April 22, 2010.
Lead dust must be contained by law, starting April 22, 2010
Sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint. Even tiny amounts of lead paint dust will poison children and adults. To protect against this risk, the EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions that will affect contractors. This was past into law on March 31, 2008.
Under the new rule, contractors that disturb 6 square feet or more of lead-based paint in homes, or child occupied facilities (built before 1978) must be certified in these new procedures and work practices before April 22, 2010.
