It does not take a lot of effort to remember when scaffolding was both exposed and unsightly. There may have been some blue tarps, possibly some netting, virtually anything that would provide rudimentary protection. Thanks to advancements in technology and engineering, shrink wrapping has become the go-to material for commercial construction sites. How did that happen and why should you consider construction and scaffolding shrink wrap solutions? Mr. Shrinkwrap has the answers…
Chances are you already know that industrial shrink wrapping is a polymer plastic film that shrinks to form a closed seal when heat is applied. While it has been around as a product protection and shipping/storage solution for decades, investing in commercial shrink wrap has only recently become popular, even with all the benefits it provides. No more bungee cords or ripped plastic flapping in the wind. Commercial shrink film is extremely robust, taking on the most powerful gusts, and only requiring replacement if damaged during construction…and even that is super easy.
What’s in it for you and your crew?
Among the reasons why shrink wrapping has become so widely used in scaffolding construction is the tremendous protection it provides against the elements. When you wrap your scaffolding in industrial shrink wrap, your crew can continue to work in all weather conditions. The film protects against rain and wind. If you have a hood construction installed, your team can work and remain dry. And the shrink wrap retains heat in the winter, making the temperature within the scaffolding far more accommodating for a full day’s work, increasing productivity.
While still primarily thought of as a packaging and shipping solution, there are many more reasons to consider industrial shrink wrapping for your construction site:
Shrink wrapping is proven fire-resistant, increasing the safety of your projects, and promoting generally safer working conditions.
Industrial shrink wrap helps protect your crew from the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.
Keep your scaffolding dry during the dampest of rainy seasons.
Limit the amount of dust being scattered to surrounding areas and enhance your professional reputation as a company.
Use commercial shrink wrap to accommodate any size, shape, or form. It will quickly mold perfectly to any shape.
Protect your site against criminal intrusion. It is much more difficult to access materials and tools on the scaffold. With the building and its contents hidden from public view, criminals passing by find shrink-wrapped buildings not worth the risk.
Construction shrink wrap from Mr. Shrinkwrap is completely recyclable, minimizing your environmental impact, and can be quickly dismantled at the close of a project.
