When a facility or home falls victim to storm, fire, or flood, the roof or building structure can suffer significant damage, leaving the building contents and interior spaces open to the environment. The longer a structure is compromised, the greater the chances of even more problems occurring. This means that, in the event of an emergency, time is of the essence to cover up any potential areas of exposure. That’s where BELFOR’s emergency shrink wrap services come in. Read on to find out more about the industrial shrink wrap and containment solutions available from BELFOR.
Shrink Wrap Services
Shrink wrap is a viable, cost-effective solution until permanent repairs can be made. It is durable and strong, and it can outperform traditional tarp and board-up methods of protecting property. Plus, shrink wrap is environmentally friendly and completely recyclable, meaning you can rest assured that our work won’t have any negative effects on the environment.
BELFOR has perfected the use of the shrink wrap technique to temporarily contain and protect structures of any size and complexity. Our shrink wrap services provide a highly effective way to protect your property from further damage due to exposure to the elements. Our teams will work quickly in the aftermath of damage to ensure your home or office is protected, providing the short-term solution you need to plan permanent repairs.
How BELFOR Protects Your Property With A Temporary Roof Covering
Shrink wrap is a polyethylene film that forms a near puncture-resistant membrane around the damaged property. A supporting framework made of wood, metal framing, and/or high-strength fabric strapping may be necessary. After the structure is wrapped, heat is applied using electric or gas-fired heat guns to shrink and tighten the membrane.
With proper care, maintenance, and repair, shrink wrap can protect a structure for up to one year in many cases. This provides you with the vital time you need to arrange repairs without having to worry about the risk of exposure to the elements causing further damage.
From the roof of a warehouse and the interior of a sports arena, to multiple apartment complex units and family homes, BELFOR has used shrink wrap to protect all types of things. We’ve even shrink-wrapped a car to protect valuable evidence.
