Transform the underutilized area under a raised deck into dry outdoor living and storage space while maintaining maximum headroom and accessibility to the underside of the deck. Zip-UP UnderDeck is made from durable interlocking PVC components engineered to fit together easily. Creating a water-tight barrier that channels water to effective drainage, the system provides a clean, grid-free flat, non-corrugated, washable mold- and mildew-resistant paintable ceiling surface. The panels unzip for quick access to dropped items from the deck above and for cleaning. The panels do not kink like aluminum, look nicer and are easier to work with. Suitable for both residential and commercial installations, Zip-UP UnderDeck meets Class A Fire Rating and has passed Dade County, Florida standards for hur- ricane testing, which is the “gold” standard around the country. Zip-UP UnderDeck installs easily with just a few tools. The screw-in/zip-in-place system uses five components: wall trim that attaches to walls or joists around the perimeter, main rail that runs the length of the deck, one-foot wide panels that are the visible surface of the system, and pitching rails that channel any water from above for effective drainage. An average size deck can easily be completed in one day. Available in three finishes and two colors (white and beige), Zip-Up UnderDeck is backed by a 25-year warranty. Visit www.zipupceilings.com.
