Does color matter?
Blue is best used for winter storage, especially for boats, because blue shrink-wrap absorbs the sunlight and allows snow and ice to melt and slide off the cover easily.
White shrink wrap reflects the sunlight and UV rays. It is best used for outside storage, like scaffolding and enclosures, because it allows sunlight into the enclosure and reduces the need for secondary lighting; this, in turn, lowers costs.
Clear shrink wrap is often used for greenhouses, but can also be used for making windows or doors in items covered in white or blue shrink wrap; thus giving you viewing access into whatever is covered.
What thickness should I use?
Let us accurately assess your job to determine the best wrap for your project.
Do I need flame retardant shrink-wrap?
Can I repair holes?
YES! This is one the best features of shrink wrap; the ease of repairing wrap is one of the main reasons why shrink wrap is so versatile. The size of the hole in the shrink wrap will determine the best way for it to be repaired. If you have a small hole, using shrink-wrap tape to cover it is the easiest and quickest fix. As the holes get larger, simply tape a larger piece of shrink wrap over the hole and lightly shrink it or weld a new piece of wrap to the old piece and shrink it. It truly is that easy.
Does it withstand high winds?
Does it crack when it’s cold?
Can I put in doors or windows?
YES! Many customers will ask if we can provide a window or a door to shrink wrap. Zipper doors are one of the easiest and quickest ways to make this happen. Doors come in all shapes and sizes and are made of clear shrink-wrap with double reinforced stitched zippers. It is as easy as taping the door wherever it is needed and cutting out the wrap behind it to give access. For larger viewing or access doors, a custom-made zipper door can be fashioned, or a larger piece of clear shrink wrap can be used to meet any specification.
