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, scaffolding and enclosures because it allows sunlight into the enclosure and reduces the need for secondary lighting.
Clear shrink-wrap is often used for greenhouses, and can also be used for making windows or doors into white or blue shrink-wrap so you can see inside the cover if you need viewing access to whatever is covered.
What thickness should I use?
Do I need flame retardant shrink-wrap?
Can I repair holes?
YES! This is one the best parts about shrink-wrap! The ease of repairing wrap is one of the main reasons why shrink-wrap is so versatile. Depending on how large the hole is in your shrink wrap will differ in the ways in can 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, its as easy as taping a larger piece of shrink wrap over the hole and lightly shrinking it, or welding a new piece of wrap to the old piece and shrinking it! Viola! It’s easy as that!!
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 you 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 made, or a larger piece of clear shrink-wrap can be used to meet any specification.
