Commercial shrink wrapping is a vital way of preserving industrial machinery or other items during important storage times, or during transport. Many of these items are constructed to last a long time, but during storage or periods where they are not being used, they need to be protected. Sometimes the items need to be protected during rapid transit, especially if they are being exposed to wind or the elements during periods of transportation. The right shrink wrap material and technique can be the solution to any problems that may potentially come up during long-term storage or transport.
The right shrink wrap professionals will be able to protect these industrial items without shredding the wrap. When this happens, the item can be ruined if it is not attended to quickly. Therefore, it is important to be sure that the right material is used and that it is used properly.
Some of the items that can be shrink-wrapped include military items and weaponry and machines. These items also include vehicles like tanks and helicopters. In the past, many industrial and military items would simply have to be transported via crate. However, this is cost-prohibitive much of the time, since the crate adds additional weight and the result is large fees for heavy lifting. If these items are shrink-wrapped, these fees can be eliminated since the wrap does not add extra weight. It also preserves the items much better for long-term storage and long-distance transport. There is also the added risk of damage that many items that are crated can experience. Those items that are shrink-wrapped are unlikely to have these same risks, since they are tightly wrapped to shield them from the elements and from physical damage.
Shrink-wrapping services can be done for the aviation and aerospace industries, marine fields, commercial fields, and for the purposes of historic preservation.
