PVC Ceiling Paneling System Creates Waterproof Barrier
Norfolk, Ne. — Oct. 1, 2014 - Zip-UP Ceiling is a smartly engineered PVC paneling system that creates a waterproof barrier that enables the space below to stay dry. The system meets every Florida standard for static and cyclic load tests of hurricane-strength winds, the most stringent in the U.S., and creates a water-tight water barrier, making it an excellent choice for finishing the underside of entryway awnings and covered walkways.
Zip-UP Ceiling is also a low life-cycle-cost alternative to drywall or suspended acoustic ceilings, especially in damp and wet locations such as residential, hospitality and dormitory bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and basements.
The waterproof, mold-resistant PVC ceiling paneling system, engineered to fit together quickly with only a few tools, carries a Class A fire rating. When evaluated against gypsum board and other comparable installations, the system offers reduced installation and life cycle costs.
Zip-UP Ceiling does not stain and holds up very well under daily exposure to high humidity and moisture from hot, steamy showers, continuing to look terrific over time. The flat, grid-free non-corrugated low-maintenance ceiling “unzips” for easy overhead access to wiring and plumbing or for dry-out, should there be a water leak from above. Using just 2 inches of headroom, Zip-UP Ceiling can be installed against an existing unsightly or damaged ceiling without the hassle of removing it.
Zip-UP Ceiling System features just five main components, including a main rail, foot-wide panels that are the visible surface of the system, and an optional hurricane rail that supports the main rail when the system is installed on exterior soffits over covered walkways or other outdoor space.
The main rails and panels are available in white and beige in smooth and serrated finishes.
The manufacturer warrants that the system is free from defects, materials and workmanship for 25 years from the date of purchase and that the components will continue to zip together for that time.
Zip-UP Ceiling is a division of MP Global Products, Norfolk, Ne., a manufacturer of building products for the flooring and construction industry.
