Have an oversized shipment that needs protection from the elements while in transit or in outdoor storage? Industrial-grade shrink wrap may be the answer.
But that raises another question: How do you wrap, say, a large load of machinery or construction materials that are too big for the wrapping equipment typically used in warehouses?
Let the shrink wrap come to you, say executives at Fast Wrap, an unusual service that performs on-site wrapping of almost anything. One of Fast Wrap's target markets is freight transportation. So far, the company has successfully encapsulated freight containers, a military jet, a rooftop exhaust system, and an entire exploratory drill rig. Several photos on the company's website show very large, shrink-wrapped shipments on flatbeds, barges, and oceangoing vessels.
According to the company, the heavy-duty shrink wrap film is recyclable, fire-retardant, anti-microbial, and weather-resistant and protects against ultraviolet rays.
