Our safety record says it all: since ’02 we’ve had zero OSHA recordables and a less than 1 EMR rating

The railway industry has utilized ZAP’s cargo plastic wrap and our patented techniques for safely shipping their products for years. Our experience and familiarity in this industry has led to successful partnerships with many companies. Our cargo shrink wrap has been used to secure and protect shipments of both the train cars themselves and the cargo going on them through the harshest of conditions.

Can I put in doors or windows?

Yes! Many customers will ask if we can provide a window or door in the shrink wrap, and 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 your choice of 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 access doors, a custom-made zipper door can be fashioned. Windows are even easier and can be made by using a larger piece of clear shrink wrap over a hole in the opaque wrap.
