WHY SHRINK WRAP A BUILDING?
Winter is no doubt the most challenging season for the construction industry. High winds, snow, sleet and ice work against the critical path of a project. Heavy winds can tear traditional tarps apart and have them flapping dangerously off the face of the structure, or pulling the scaffolding down.
According to one study, severe weather reduces productivity on a job site on average of 7 percent. For construction companies, that large drop in productivity for one project has the potential to create huge cost overruns and delays
Labor and Material cost overruns
Equipment rental overruns
Disruption of cash flow due to time extensions and interest payments
DELAYS CAUSE COSTLY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT SETBACKS THAT ULTIMATELY CREATE MORE PROBLEMS
GLOBAL WRAP® SHRINK WRAP BUILDINGS
Global Wrap® is the original shrink wrap company, that invented the shrink wrap process which provides a drum-tight, seamless, fire retardant weather containment for steel and concrete structures. Global Wrap®’s building enclosures can be shrink wrapped in their entirety or level by level.
Shrink wrapping building for construction purposes is an economical method for containment. The shrink wrap will keep out the cold weather, rain, snow and wind which will allow work to progress. The building shrink wrap also keeps debris inside protecting the exterior environment.Our services help keep you on the critical path to completion.
Temporary Curtain Walls - FleX Walls
Global Wrap installs FleX-Walls floor by floor, which enables the glaziers to cut away a section at a time to install the permanent curtain walls by sections each day and to seal off by night. The FleX-Walls withstand high winds and are installed once, unlike tarps that fail many times during high winds and add to the hidden cost of the project
BENEFITS OF CHOOSING GLOBAL WRAP WEATHER CONTAINMENTS
No more tarps blowing in the wind
Add up the hidden cost of tarp failure, labor, materials and schedule delays
Fast to install
Withstand high winds
Welded seams, no leakage
When an international research center moved it's headquarters to the state of New York, the architect called on Global Wrap to inquire about our special wrap which is able to resist high winds and sleet; since he seen failed tarps and Shrink Wrap installations. After speaking with our estimators and understanding how Global Wrap installs film, he recommended us to the GC and Global Wrap was granted the largest project in it's 41 years of business.
