The last time we rattlecan’d something in the shop, we tried to minimize the overspray by creating a “tent” around the paint area. The bottom line: our tent sucked and we not only had to clean up overspray, we also had to clean up the tent. This looks like a quicker and more secure way to put up a plastic wall for a messy project.
ZipWall’s barrier system consists of telescoping, twist-locking poles available in both twelve and twenty foot lengths. The system locks the “screening” material (ordinary plastic sheeting, light canvas tarp, or drop cloth) firmly against the ceiling, creating a reasonably tight barrier. Once in place, just lift and tuck the screening material under the pole to create a tight barrier from top to bottom — ready for you to make whatever mess you’ve got planned inside.
To get this kind of “zippy cool” solution, you’re going to have to go a bit north of the century mark at $128 — which might leave you looking for a few sticks and some duck tape if you’re on a strict project budget. Personally, we’re gonna save up for some.
I hate cleaning up overspray.
