Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shinypenny A Different Application Than Intended
I used 2 of these Zipwall Zippers to make a door for a clubhouse in the basement for the kids to play in in our unfinished basement. I got some fun material on clearance, enough to make a 10 x 10 square to go from the rafters to the floor, and sewed the zipper onto the material, and hung the material from the rafters, and they can zip the door closed for "secret clubhouse meetings".
I sewed some tiebacks to the top out of cotton webbing, if they want to have a doorway, they can roll the material up and tie it up so the "door" can stay open, but most of the time, they just use one of the zippers to go in and out that way. Kind of fun, and great for rainy days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeKC Kept dust out!!
Wish the adhesive could be a bit more, I installed them on a heavy duty tarp across the top of a stairwell that keeps the construction dust from entering the foyer and downstairs and it works great.
It has been up for several weeks with daily use, the only thing I wound up doing was to put glue on the adhesive so it was permanent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CliffC It works, and keeps on working...
There's no way to stop all the dust and still work, but this zipper(s) actually do work very well. We mounted one on 6 mill plastic, and went in and out of the construction site many many times... It didn't break, and I believe I can tape it into another application... The $15 may scare you off, but there are two
so it's worth it...especially if you're a slow homeowner (DIYer) .....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AverageDude Nice product great design smooth zipper action
This helps to provide a great barrier keeping your job "area" separate from the "clean" areas on the jobsite. The Zipwall does a fantastic job of minimizing dirt and dust transfer into unwanted areas of the job site. The zipper action is smooth. The adhesive is strong. Additionally, you can use two zippers side by side to make a wider doorway for bringing in materials/supplies to the work area.
One of the grossly overlooked areas of a job is the cleanup. The Zipwall is fantastic in reducing clean up time at the end of the job. It more than pays for itself in clean up time alone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG Other uses, besides the obvious
I know that this zipper is designed to keep dust and mess under control. I would have used it when I was dry walling my shop. When I did learn about it I immediately saw it as a solution to another problem.
My shop is divided into two areas, the main area where I keep my wood and metal tools, and a separate 'lab' area where I assemble electronics and grind and polish lenses and mirrors. This needs to be kept really clean, and a conventional door does not hack it. So I used the zipper kit and heavy duty poly sheeting to seal off the door, using one zipper on each side, and rolling the flap up and out of the way for entry.
It works great, and it may also work for other situations, such as a spray paint booth

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Panaman Perfect for blocking off a dusty room
This zipper kit is ment to be applied to a plastic sheet that you put over a doorway to a room that you have under construction. It allows you to install a zipper on the plastic so you can open and close it. I haven't actually used it yet but have inspected it. It comes with a cutting knife to make the slit in the plastic and comes with two zipper that can be applied to two different pieces of plastic. The zipper is self adheasive. Its not ment to be re-used but I think when after you are done you could cut the plastic a little wide on each side of the zipper then possibly even use duct tape to hang it back up on another door way. I see this being very handy for rooms that you are doing alot of drywall work in.
