The new ZipDoor™ kit is a great way to create a dust barrier when all you need to seal is the doorway. One person can install it in under a minute. You'll save hours on jobs with lots of doors like commercial office space, hotels, hospitals & more! The savings can really add up.
It's also great for residential jobs like kitchen and bath remodeling, or where renovation will disturb lead paint. The ZipDoor makes it easy to meet the EPA's RRP requirement for a covered doorway.

Our zippers are glued-on for maximum sheer strength and durability. A stitched-on zipper can fall if pulled sharply or tugged because the stitching creates a perforation.
To attach the ZipDoor we invented a very special double-sided tape. One side of our ZipWall tape is like traditional painter's tape. It's gentle on painted surfaces. The other side was designed to hold plastic sheeting. Importantly, it lets you reposition the ZipDoor for up to an hour before fully bonding the plastic.
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.
