Anyone have any experience with using these in the shop ?

Effective for keeping dust “contained” ?

Any preference for suppliers ?

For a basement shop that is impinging on the other parts of the basement and, even with improved DC, there is still some dust being created

I’m betting that they don’t do a great job of keeping dust contained and once the dust gets between the overlapping slats, every time you pass through you’ll get fine dust all over whatever you’re wearing.

dust will cling to those a LOT!

Both good points, sadly :-)

So what are they used for at jobsites ? Just plain old separation ?

Oh well, back to the drawing board…..

One thingthat renovators use is a plastic shhet. It is taped to the door jams. Then there is a zipper put into the center of the plastic cutain. When you want to enter/exit simply open the zipper. To keep dust und control keep the zipper closed.

Have your say...
