How The ZipUP UnderDeck® System Works
From seasonal storage space to an outdoor study, ZipUP helps you add value and space to your home by creating an under deck ceiling through the use of modular panels. Each ZipUP Panel features two beads which run the length of the Panel to form an impermeable seal with your main rails. At the end where the panel slides into the wall trim, and on the outer edge of the first and last panel, the bead needs to be trimmed off using tin snips or a utility knife.
Should maintenance be necessary, or if a lost article needs to be retrieved from below the deck surface, these ceiling panels can easily be removed. Simply push upward in the middle of a ceiling panel until a thin screwdriver or flat-edged tool can fit beneath the edge of the panel and release the seal. To replace it, simply slide the edge into the Wall Trim and zip it back up along the main rail or rails.
Color Coordinate Your Ceiling for Under Deck
ZipUP UnderDeck® Ceiling Panels are offered in coordinating premium finishes of White, Beige, and Gray to complete your home's aesthetic and deliver a finished look to your new underdeck ceiling system. Choose from Serrated or Pebble textures to complement the tone and style of the space. ZipUP UnderDeck® Panels can be painted a custom color to suit the decor below your deck using a Latex based paint.
Measuring Your New Deck Ceiling
Installing a new ZipUP UnderDeck® ceiling system to your main rails? First, measure the width of the deck. Divide that number (in inches) by 12.125, and round up.
