Over the years, we’ve always found the best solution when accessing something that’s been encapsulated would be to use our normal 1.8m Shrink Wrap Zipper Doors , however zips aren’t always the perfect solution. Occasionally, they can get broken after heavy use and gaining entry requires you to drop everything in your hands to go and open it, slowing productivity.

However now, we are introducing a much more convenient, clean and environmentally friendly option to the UK, as an alternative that can be re-used over and over again!

The Magnetic Dust Barrier Entry Strip™, from Re-U-Zip in the United States, is an innovative new way for remodelling, construction and healthcare workers to help keep dust and contaminates contained. Unlike pre-fabricated Magnetic Doors, this gives you the freedom to creates a self-closing opening in any poly sheeting of your choice in just minutes.

Some key features:

  • Reusable
  • Reliably Holds Over 5 Pa of Air Pressure!
  • Easily Handles High Traffic
  • Compact Design For Easy Storage
  • No Special Tools Required
  • Provides a Smooth Hands Free Access on Site

Another great feature of this system is the versatility, easily switch between zippered or magnetic entry upon the same mounting strip, even mid-project!

So how does it work?

FASTENER STRIPS. 

  1. Firstly, you need to remove the backing paper from the Hook & Loop Fastener Strips and attach the loop strip to the door frame or wall opening.
  2. Repeat this on all three sides around the opening, cutting off any excess in the process.
  3. Then, attach the hook strip to the loop strip, remembering to keep the release paper on for this stage.

 

PRE CUT.

  1. Before attaching the sheeting, please ensure there is a minimum of 2 inches of excess on each side. Once ready, remove the backing paper from the hook strip along the top of the entryway.
  2. Then while holding the sheeting tight, affix only the top of the sheeting to the exposed adhesive strip.
  3. After that, slowly remove the paper backing on one side of the fastener strip and firmly press the sheeting all the way down bit by bit on the adhesive, then repeat the process on the other side.
  4. Once completed, carefully use a Stanley knife to remove the excess barrier material.

 

MAGNETIC STRIP.

  1. Remove the paper backing from the Mounting Strip and apply it in the centre of the sheeting with the bottom of the mounting strip meeting the bottom of the door. TIP: If possible, leave a 1 inch uncut gap at the top of the door for added longevity.
  2. Then using a Stanley knife, cut your mounting strip in the centre all the way down to create an opening, and firmly attach the magnetic entry strip folded in half on one side.
  3. Finally, unfold and repeat the process on the other side and there you go!
