How to Shrink Wrap a Modular Building
Shrink wrap works very well for protecting modular building modules against weather damage while being stored or transported. It is inexpensive, easily applied, and UV protected for long term usage (12 months +). General application steps are listed below.
Many of the steps will be the same as those used when installing regular plastic transit sheeting. Please note that the shrink wrap you will be using is not flame retardant unless specified on the label, so a fire extinguisher must be kept handy at all times, and all safety precautions must be followed.
Our system is very simple with very few parts:
Shrink Wrap Gun (Heat Tool with 25’ hose and regulator)
White Shrink Wrap Tape (4” wide X 180’ long)
Long Cuff Leather Safety Gloves (pair) (these are included with the RS100 Shrink Wrap Gun)
Shrink Wrap Film Cutting Knife
