Frequently Asked Questions

Pressurized Walls Basics

WHAT IS A PRESSURIZED WALL?

Our pressurized wall is a non damaging temporary wall that looks like a permanent wall but is not attached to the existing structure by screws, nails or anything else. The interior framework of these wall dividers applies pressure between the floor and ceiling to hold the pressure walls firmly and securely in place. Once the pressurized wall is removed, there will be no damage to the space or any signs that a wall partition was ever there.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A TEMPORARY WALL OVER A PERMANENT WALL?

Cost: In most cases the pressurized wall is less expensive.
Soundproof: The pressurized wall is structured up to the ceiling while the bookcase wall is required to have a 12” gap between the ceiling and the top of the bookcase partition.
Size: The pressurized wall is 4.5” thick while the bookcase wall is either 6” thick to 12” thick.

WHAT DO PRESSURIZED WALLS LOOK LIKE?

Our pressurized walls will snugly fit along your ceiling, floors, and existing walls. Almost no one visiting your apartment will know they are Temporary walls.

WHAT TYPE OF DOORS DO PRESSURIZED WALLS HAVE?

Unused corner space? Maximize your storage space with a closet. Swinging, pocket/sliding, French, double French, frosted or double frosted.
A standard size for any single door is 30” x 80”, but we can install bigger or smaller doors if desired.

ARE PRESSURIZED WALLS ALSO SOUNDPROOF WALLS?

We offer sound insulation on all of the temporary walls we install.

WHAT COLOR ARE PRESSURIZED WALLS?

Dr-WALL will paint the pressurized walls on site after the installation is complete. We will attempt to match the existing color of your apartment walls as best we can, using the Benjamin Moore standard whites color chart.

CAN I HANG THINGS ON A PRESSURIZED WALL?

You can hang up to 30 pounds [approx. 13.5 kilograms] on our pressurized walls. This would include light things such as small mirrors and pictures, but not heavy things such as flat screens and bookshelves.
We can reinforce a specific area on the pressure wall so you can hang heavy objects. Please let us know before installation.
You may not, however, attach any hooks or other items that will puncture, scratch, or otherwise damage the surfaces of our doors.

HOW LONG DOES THE PRESSURIZED WALL INSTALLATION TAKE?

Most room dividing installations take up to 7 hours. You will be notified prior to scheduling in the event the size of your partition will require us more than one day to complete.
