New Solution for Age-Old Problem: Zip-Up UnderDeck® Turns Wasted Space Into Dry Usable Living and Storage Space Under Raised Decks + Cafe Awnings

New take on old problem - maximizing space under raised decks and awning for minimal investment: For new homes, businesses and renovations, Zip-Up UnderDeck® grid free ceiling saves headroom while enabling easy access to plumbing and wiring via removable panels.

Norfolk, NE, September 12, 2012 --( The innovative, very clever and economically priced Zip-Up UnderDeck® from Zip-Up Ceiling® & ZipUp UnderDeck® easily transforms underutilized space under an elevated deck into dry entertainment and storage space, adding versatile functionality to an existing or new deck while maintaining maximum headroom and accessibility.

Zip-Up UnderDeck is made from durable interlocking PVC components engineered to fit together easily. Creating a water tight water barrier that channels water to effective drainage, the system provides a clean, grid-free flat, non-corrugated washable mold and mildew resistant paintable surface. It looks (and acts) very smart! The installed panels unzip for easy removal for access to electrical, plumbing and other work, and for cleaning.

Suitable for both residential and commercial installations, ZipUp UnderDeck meets Class A Fire Rating and has passed Dade County, Florida standards for hurricane testing.

The screw-in + zip-in-place system installs very quickly with just a few tools by a contractor or a DIYer. Zip-Up UnderDeck uses five components: wall trim that attaches to walls or joists around the perimeter, main rail that runs the length of the deck, panels that are the visible surface of the system, and pitching rails that channel any water from above for effective drainage. Seam trim (not usually needed) is also available. An average size deck can easily be completed in one day. Pro installers have noted that installation of Zip-Up UnderDeck can take just half the time as the closest competitive system.

Zip-Up UnderDeck comes in two finishes, smooth and serrated, in white and beige. The main rails are one-foot wide panels and are available in 8', 12' and 16' lengths, the wall trim and pitching rail in 8' and 12' lengths, and seam trim in 12' lengths.

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 UnderDeck applies the same clever technology to Zip-Up Ceiling®, suitable for basements and interior space in place of a drop ceiling, saving up to 4" of headroom while providing easy access to plumbing and wiring.
