Shrink Wrap Services
Shrink wrapping is a waterproof, weatherproof and tamperproof polymer plastic film. When heat is applied, it shrinks tightly over whatever it is covering.
Our Shrink Wrap Services Include:

Benefits of Shrink Wrap
Protection: When heat is applied to shrink wrap, it creates a very tight seal. This plastic seal creates a barrier against the elements and cross contamination whether it used for containment or a roof system. Shrink wrap even comes with UV protection, to keep your contents safe from the sun’s harmful rays.
Durability: Shrink wrap is made from a very sturdy, durable plastic. It is difficult to tear or puncture. Unlike other materials, shrink wrap does not become brittle or weaken when it is in the sun or extreme cold. Once the shrink wrap has been heated and sealed over your objects, it will not loosen or sag.
Convenience: The one item that separates shrink wrap from conventional blue roof tarps and containment is that is can be used for any size project. Entire structures have been shrink wrapped to prevent chemical leaks or exposure from hazardous materials.
Recyclable: When you’re finished with it, you can toss it in with other plastic bags to be recycled and remade for future uses.
Other Uses of Shrink Wrap
Containment of Construction Sites: Shrink wrapping a building provides a completely contained and weatherproof environment for your construction project. The plastic itself is attached directly to the scaffolding or steel. It is wrapped around the very top of the structure, where it is heated to self-adhere around the top scaffolding pole. It is then attached around the bottom scaffolding pole, creating a taut and fitted seal. Shrink wrap is incredibly durable and is used all over the world as the preferred method of containment on construction sites. When compared with conventional sheeting methods such as netting or tarpaulins, it is the far superior product. Shrink wrap provides a taut, thick cover over the scaffolding that does not chafe, rip or flap in the wind like conventional covering methods. Additionally, all dust, debris, pollutants, or falling objects are contained, and there is no threat of them harming the immediate environment. Once installed, the Shrink wrap will not detach from the scaffolding, avoiding call outs to re-tie/refit or replace the sheeting. Shrink wrap is ideal for containing sandblast residuals, chemical stripping and asbestos removal. Shrink wrap acts as a weather break, protecting the internal environment from rain and wind that could hinder the progress of your project. Your company will not lose any day’s work, ultimately saving you time and money.
