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 4.0 out of 5.0 by aroyals Multiple uses for barrier protection
I got this zipper thinking it came with the plastic barrier sheets as well, but it does not. It is only a zipper set (2 zippers) that can be added to your own plastic sheet or even any other material you might be hanging, that allows you to add an easy door or opening. We ended up using one of the zippers on a make-shift paint booth we set up in the garage to spray paint some horse stalls. The zipper was heavy duty enough to stand up to the overspray from the gun and made a nice entry/exit from our 'booth.' We ended up just throwing everything away because of the sticky overspray, but if you really want to make your area secure (instead of overlapping plastic sheets for a door like we usually do) this zipper could be a good investment. I probably wouldn't recommend it for one day projects but for anything that will take a little time it's definitely worth the ease it adds. Wish we had it when we were doing drywall in one part of our house, would have helped with the dust!

works well, adhesives on the zipper holds to most materials and the zipper knife that comes with the kit cuts sheeting like butter! Over all a good value if you want to make a zipper barrier somewhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pmike Good idea.
Initially, I was hesitant about this idea. I've always used tape or binder clips to open and close access in and out of my temporary "plastic house" Once I used these zippers instead of my traditional approach, I quickly became a convert. The kit comes with two 7 foot zippers, two "hooks", and a plastic cutter. The instructions show covering a doorway with plastic, installing one zipper on the plastic (via the self stick backing) on each side of the doorway, and then slitting the plastic at each zipper. Insert the hooks (hangers) into the plastic at each side at door height, unzip the two zippers, roll up the plastic "door", and hang the roll in the hooks. This procedure allows easy access when dust protection is not needed, or bringing tools and supplies in and out of the work area. I chose to use the zippers singly, requiring only one zipper in the middle of the doorway and no hooks. Either procedure works well. The only change I would make to this product is to the zippers themselves. They would be more durable and easier to use if the zippers were a heavier gauge and not so much like a fabric zipper. Even though, the system works well to control dust and still have accessibility when renovating.

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.

The zipper knife cuts well and makes installation of a zippered door effortless. The adhesive holds well throughout continued openings and closings
