Mr. Shrinkwrap Protects Machinery for Long Term Storage

By 1 years ago 393 Views No comments

Running a warehouse, factory, or production facility is expensive. One area in which costs can add up quickly for a warehouse is with inefficient use of space. If you're housing items that are not currently in use for production, you may be encountering unnecessary expenses. Mr. Shrinkwrap has the experience and background to help companies free up this valuable space for productive uses by preparing idle equipment or raw materials for storage in the great outdoors. Today, we're taking a look at this process in action, as we protected a large motor for outdoor storage near Elk County, PA.

To wrap and protect the motor for the outdoors, we first started with the motor sitting on a large skid.

We then applied a bomb sheet, which is a layer of loose film used as a preventative measure against sharp points on the object. For our second and final layer of film, we pulled the film over the object, cut the film to size and secured the film to itself, going around the perimeter strap. We secured the wrap further by running belly bands below the object in order to pull the lower section of the wrap underneath the object.

The motor was then safely wrapped for long term storage outside, freeing up valuable warehouse space.
