Heavy Duty Construction Shrink Wrap
Pro-Tect's heavy duty construction shrink wrap has been carefully formulated from superior material that allows for a higher standard in performance and safety. Our plastic film is strong, durable, versatile, and low maintenance to provide the ultimate protection in construction projects, weatherization wrapping, and environmental containment applications. Different from marine or standard heat shrink wrap, we offer construction shrink wrap in flame retardant, non flame retardant, and ultra violet resistant formulas in a variety of thicknesses to suit your needs. Pro-Tect Plastics carries heat shrink wrap films that are regarded as the very best in the construction industry.
Construction sites are filled with expensive equipment and at times it is difficult to contain dust, sand and other containments. Industrial heat shrink wrap can help! It forms a tough, tight weather and moisture-proof barrier which will contain virtually 100% of sandblast, paint, lead or asbestos residuals, dust and other construction debris or environmental conditions.
Why would you need to use industrial shrink wrap plastic for containment purposes? Let’s look at some examples. When a building, facility, or home becomes damaged due to storms, fire, floods, or other environmental conditions, the roof of a building structure may be left open to further damage. The longer the structure is open and compromised, the worse the damage can become. Industrial shrink wrap is a viable, cost-effective solution that can reduce further damage until permanent repairs can be made. Industrial shrink wrap is durable, longstanding, strong, and often outperforms other methods of protecting property such as boards or tarps. On top of that, shrink wrap is environmentally-friendly as it is completely recyclable. Protect your structure from environmental damage and protect the environment at the same time.
Contain Construction Debris
Another example of the effective property-protection powers of industrial shrink wrap is when you are attempting to protect the environment from dangerous aspects of the building itself. Asbestos abatement is a good example. As asbestos is being removed from a building, the surrounding environment needs to be protected. Industrial shrink wrap can completely contain the dangerous asbestos, offering an affordable and completely effective measure against environmental contagion.
Wrap Scaffolding for Adverse Weather
Pro-Tect's flame retardant shrink is often used in construction sites as a scaffold shrink wrapping film. In that role this containment system sets new standards for its amazing strength, durability, versatility and low maintenance.
We carry several different industrial shrink scaffold wrap; flame retardant and non flame retardant, sizes and mil thickness for all types of construction projects, weatherization wrap and environmental containment applications.
The Pro-Tect scaffold wrap containment process is fairly simple with the proper equipment and material. We specialize in the sale and installation of 9 and 12 mil flame resistant (certified to N.F.P.A. 701, large and small scale tests), thermo polyethylene shrink scaffold wrap with UVI for longevity. This scaffold wrap is used extensively in Pro-Tect’s design and installation of environmental containments which meet the requirements of SSPC Guide 61 Class 1 and Class 2. A framework, such as scaffolding along with our special hi-tensile strength strapping and specially formulated tapes are required to install the shrink wrap containment. Once the material is in place, the process of shrinking the wrap is accomplished by using the Shrinkfast 998 (UL listed) propane fired heat gun. The hot air produced by the heat gun is used to heat seam and seal the scaffold sheeting of thermo poly film together thereby forming a large impermeable barrier around the rigid or semi-rigid framework upon which it is installed. The scaffold wrapping film is then shrank up to 30% to form a tough, tight weather proof barrier which will virtually contain 100% of sandblast, paint, lead or asbestos residuals, dust and debris.
Needed Items for Construction Containment
- A framework, such as scaffolding.
- Special hi-tensile strength strapping
- Specifically formulated heat shrink tape
- Industrial shrink wrap rolls of enough length and width to complete the project
- The Shrinkfast 998® propane fired heat gun
To perform the Environmental Containment Process, first cover the area to be contained using the appropriate industrial shrink wrap and seal all of the seams with shrink tape. Once the material is in place, apply high temperature heat using the Shrinkfast 998® propane fired heat gun. The hot air seals the sheets of shrink wrap thermo poly film together thereby forming a large impermeable barrier around the rigid or semi-rigid framework upon which it is installed. The industrial shrink wrap film is then shrank by up to 30% to form a tough, tight weather and moisture-proof barrier which will contain virtually all of the sandblast, paint, lead or asbestos residuals, dust and other construction debris or environmental conditions.
NOTE: It is important that the right products are used in the Environmental Containment Process. We do not recommend altering from those specified. Doing so could result in a failed containment process, damage to property, and pose a safety risk. Heat shrink tape contains particular adhesives relevant to this system. High-tensile strapping performs differently than cable. Not every shrink wrap film will conform to N.F.P.A of SSPC regulations. Pro-Tect Plastics has the correct products, kits, and resources available to get the job done.
Shrink Wrap Training
The Pro-Tect industrial shrink wrapping containment process is fairly simple to learn and can be easily performed with the proper equipment and material. You can learn how to properly perform the containment process with our step-by-step video guide. We can also keep custom roll sizes of heavy duty shrink film for shrink wrapping in storage at our warehouse if you order 5,000 pounds or more.
