DISASTER SHRINK WRAP SERVICES
Mitigate the Loss with Global Wrap®
Global Wrap® has been in almost every major hurricane since 1993. We have saved thousands of homes and businesses from further damage and insurance claims. The company has also been in earthquakes in San Francisco, Armenia and Iran. We specialize in disaster containments.
Oklahoma City Bombing
Two days after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995, Global Wrap was cleared and brought down to the epicenter of the blast in the front of the Federal Building, where the crater was more than forty yards wide in circumference. Global Wrap’s disaster containment job was to contain the asbestos blowing out on the workers below from the buildings across the street where the roofs were pealed back, releasing asbestos particles into the air.
Emergency Shrink Wrap Roof Disaster Containments
Whether there is a deck or just the rafters, we can mitigate the loss by encapsulating the open areas. Our emergency services stop the loss from growing when the interior of a structure is open to the elements and exposure to mold growth.
Hurricane Katrina/ The Developing of Shrink Wrapping Roofs
Global Wrap was in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina for over two months wrapping up schools, hospitals and other commercial properties. Our disaster containment team was flown in by helicopter to do projects in areas that were under water. Some projects even required police escort to get through all the barricades.

Temporary Buildings / Temporary Disaster Shelters and Housing
Global Wrap® is the original shrink wrap contractor that traveled to disaster sites. We can erect a temporary building to be used for storage, disaster shelters, or temporary work shops. Global Wrap® works with structural engineers on many projects to design the building to withstand high winds, snow and ice.
International Quick Shelters©
Global Wrap® installed the first Quick Shelters©, in the Armenian earthquake area in 1988 for disaster housing, and again in the 1990 earthquake in Iran. Mr. Seraphin went through the embassy for permission and the U.S. Army for the transportation of the materials and twelve men. These Quick Shelters© were used for emergency housing and emergency medical centers. These disaster shelters got the people out of the subfreezing temperatures when their homes had been utterly destroyed. Our disaster containments have been used in all the disasters Global Wrap has participted in.
