ZipWall Barrier System
Doesn't look like a bad deal....'specially for a big home....

I was just looking at 3rd hand today. Thinking about buying 4 of them to start with. From y'all who have used them before, is that a good number to start with?

Well I got the starter kit that come with 4 pole then bought couples more. Mainly if I ever got to do tiles on the shower ceiling and they do work great.... also work great for remodeling job that you need to keep the dust in 1 area.....

I use both systems. I usually use the Zipwall system with either painter's plastic alone or 40 mil with the zipper and keep "sticky" mats outside the work area for dust control during the demo or drywall stages. 3rd Hand is more versatile as it will hold cabinets, drywall, CBU and other things in place if you're working alone, plus it will do plastic barriers as well. And yes, 4 is a minimum to start. I have both the shorter and longer poles and have used them in my pickup to help secure loads as well.

4 is a good number. I suppose I could have used more somewhere, but have been satisfied with them. I like the zipwall's foam sealing bar to push the plastic against the wall or ceiling. I'd like to have had that. :tup2:

You can use them for more than just dust control. The "Wet Tent" was set up in the other room at the time and needed another. :)

Four to start is min.
For those here that don't have this system you have missed the boat. There is nothing better than to enter a clients home and set up with their cleanlyness worries first in your mind. Your whole job will go better when they see your doing the best you can to contain your work/mess.

Hey Kurt, the plastic dosen't reach the floor in those pictures. Whats up with that?:D

I've been using zip wall for years, and I have the third hand poles too. I use the third hands for sheetrock and cabinet installs. Zip wall is expensive, but worth it. They are well made and easy to use.

I am going to go the cheap route and get the harbor freight version. I have a harbor freight store 1/2 mile from my house so I will head over there tomorrow.

I purchased that for our company and I believe we got 4 poles. I would like 6 to start but either way, money well spent. Good stuff :tup2:

Controlling dust in your Vancouver Bathroom renovation - Plastic Walls & Hepa Filters
Dust Management is key for both us and our clients well being. I have about 14 of these poles that we use for our active projects so we can contain our mess and leave the rest of the home dust free.

Renovating a bathroom is a messy job. Lots of material has to come and go - being able to protect the home from dust flying about makes things a little bit easier and the renovation that more enjoyable.

I wear a mask most days and always with mixing setting materials. I won't let my kids near me when mixing at home and surely don't want my clients or their kids breathing this dust. Mortar gets mixed outside and renovation dust gets contained. Adjacent rooms get Hepa filters in case anything sneaks out.

I've had 3rd hand for years now. Lovem. Also like the company behind them, Fastcap. They make my favorite lefty-righty tape measure and my chop shop Tile saw tent.

Looked at zipwall but too much $$ to get just a little better than what I have now. Both good I'm sure.

I have those same task model poles John. I like HF ersion with that bigger head to grab more plastic.

Foochacho 02-18-2010 11:49 PM

Doesn't look like the harbor freight version has a magnet or clip on the head to hold the plastic. Looks like you would have to tape it on to it. Seems like a pain in the ass to me. I like my set of third hands. I have four of them and they shipped with a nice case too.
