SHRINK WRAPPING FOR ASBESTOS
Importance Of Shrink Wrap For Asbestos Projects
Asbestos is a mineral found in trace amounts across the globe. Due to its microscopic fibres, it cannot be detected by the naked eye. Worse, the mineral has been classified as a carcinogen, implying that it can cause cancer.
Why Asbestos containment?
Most older buildings contain asbestos as it was used extensively for thermal insulation and fire retardant purposes. Its durability and resistance to corrosion made it very ideal for the purposes it served, at the time.
Moreover, its strength coupled with its resistance to heat made it the material of choice for products such as floor tiles, roofing shingles, cement products, ceiling materials, and automotive parts. Hence, if your workplace was renovated or built before 1990, the chances are that a part of your building has asbestos. It is now essential to remove the asbestos from the building for now obvious safety reasons.
Asbestos is a very noxious substance if inhaled, If not properly removed, the fibres may disperse into the air and may be inhaled causing short and long term health problems.
Before you begin the process of asbestos removal, always ensure that the specialists involved have the technical know-how to avoid any health-related challenges.
For a company dealing with asbestos or lead remediation, you must understand that Class 1 containment can effectively and expediently be achieved through the use of shrink wrap. Compressing entire buildings or sections of a building can efficiently be achieved using our shrink wrap system.
Over time, shrink wrap has proven to be the most reliable and cost-effective method for containment of asbestos removal.
When the enclosures are constructed in an exterior environment you have to consider the possibility of heavy rainfall and any adverse weather conditions that could cause catastrophic damage to a conventional asbestos enclosure which would make a large area very unsafe. Our shrink wrap containments not only seal the environment, it acts as a robust shield from the outside elements.
EnCaPS have a lot of experience with providing containments for asbestos removals, working alongside several large removal companies together to provide the necessary conditions for a safe and robust removal.
