Shrink wrapping provides adequate protection to the covered items from adverse weather conditions such as heavy rains which may cause corrosion and damage to machinery. It also protects the public and the environment from being harmed by the items. The use of accessories such as temporary roofs and side sheeting prevent delays which may be caused by bad weather and helps in keeping the internal environment dry and safe. Accessories should be specified according to the nature of the work being done. Moreover, it can hold treated air for perishable goods and at the same time prevent contaminated air from seeping in and spoiling the products.
Besides, shrink wrap protects the people who are accessing the goods from harm and also retains the integrity of the cover by eluding being compromised. Transportation of goods is one vital activity that faces a lot of challenges especially the uncertainty of whether the goods are safe. Whenever you use shrink wrap, you can rest assured that whatever product you are transporting, large or small, it will be safe and intact by the time it reaches its destination.
Comparison to other alternatives
When compared to monarflex, which is another alternative, shrink wrapping is more effective to use in public areas such as bridges, streets and walkways. This is because the shrink wrap forms a drum-tight and resistant skin around the scaffold which can withstand a huge amount of pressure. Therefore, it will guarantee the safety of passers-by when an activity is being carried out. It also prevents poisonous gases from diffusing into the surrounding air which may be harmful to people, wildlife and the environment at large.
Impact on wildlife
Also, shrink wrap has been proved to be safe to use around wildlife without harming them and it also prevents wildlife from being harmed by machinery that has been covered. Also, the shrink wrap acts as a barrier which prevents wildlife from accessing a certain area where they may be hurt. It is important to be careful not to gravely affect the public around us and reflect on the impact we have on the environment.
Impact on the environment
Shrinkwrap has been proven to reduce significantly the essential impacts and harmful emissions produced in industrial areas by preventing their spread. Furthermore, shrink wrap a hundred percent recyclable and reusable, that is, after using it, it can be disposed without spoiling the environment and can be used over and over again due to its long-lasting and durability properties. Being made of plastic most people will be quick to dismiss it arguing that all plastics are harmful to the environment, but this is not the case with shrink wrap. It is made of a polymer called polyolefin that is highly decomposable. It is important to preach about environmental awareness as we have all witnessed how destructive pollution and industrialisation can be.
