The ZipWall® FoamRail Span™ Adjustable Tapeless Seal Sets the Standard for Dust Containment Aug 2016

FoamRail Span Creates a Tight Seal in a Dust Barrier along Ceilings, Floors, and Walls

Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — A tightly sealed dust barrier is a critical component of any dust containment solution, particularly in and near areas where people live and work. Construction work in locations like hospitals, restaurants, office buildings, and homes demand the best in dust containment solutions available.

To that end, the ZipWall FoamRail Span is designed to tightly seal along ceilings, floors, and walls without using ladders or tape and without damaging surfaces. As a component of the ZipWall dust barrier system, the FoamRail Span easily snaps onto any ZipWall spring-loaded pole or wall mount in seconds. Once attached, it pushes the barrier against the ceiling, floor, or wall, creating a tight seal that prevents dust from escaping the work area.

A key benefit of the ZipWall FoamRail Span is its versatility. It can be extended anywhere from 4 to 8 feet, allowing a contractor to fit the span to the precise size of any barrier. Another advantage is the Span’s efficiency. It requires just one pole to seal up to 8 feet of barrier edge at both the ceiling and the floor.

The ZipWall FoamRail Span Adjustable Tapeless Seal features important advantages: 

  • Creates a tight seal without tape in seconds
  • Reusable and cost-effective
  • Can be used with negative or positive air
  • Requires no ladders and leaves no damage

“Since the launch of ZipWall in 1997, we’ve been committed to innovation when it comes to dust containment,” said Jeff Whittemore, founder and CEO of ZipWall. “The FoamRail Span is quick to install, requires no ladder, seals tightly, and leaves no damage once the job is done. It is lightweight, adjustable, and reusable.”

“Keeping dust out of a person’s home while you’re remodeling is key,” said Rob Robillard of “I think the ZipWall FoamRail Span is brilliant. You can completely seal at the ceiling and at the floor. It really compresses nicely.”
