Last week Protec attended the Toolfair exhibition at Coventry Ricoh Arena.
We were showing off our new door-way dust seal, ZipDoor. With lots of tradesman varying from builders and electricians to joiners everyone was pleased to see a very quick and cost effective solution to limiting dust travelling around a house when carrying out any messy work. Usually this is a problem point that is resolved by using dust sheets and tapes however this is never as simple as it sounds with dust sheets often being heavy and falling down and not to mention getting very dirty with continual use. All of this is a clear indication of the benefits of ZipDoor but the overiding factor that brought people to purchase the product was its professional look when using it in a residential/domestic setting. Whereas a dust sheet can look unprofessional and messy people loved how ZipDoor looked when used and clearly saw how their clients would appreciate it being brought along to a job. Within an industry when so much business is based upon reputation and referrals ZipDoor is a perfect addition to any tradesmans arsenal of tools.

‘Perfect Solution for a dust free zone – 5 stars – by Claire Rumble, 08 Aug 2012
Usage: We are having an extension but trying to live in our house throughout the build. I therefore wanted to be able to avoid the rooms we are living in becoming dusty. Particularly as my husband and I both suffer from Asthma.
Opinion: I am so impressed with this product. It was very easy to assemble and is exceeding all expectations I had of its capability in stopping dust getting into the rooms we wish to protect. It is also easy to get in and out of. Most people complain about dust getting everywhere in the house when having an extension – this is definately the answer to avoid that happening. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to others.’
