CONTAINMENT SHRINK WRAPPING
Some activities in construction, although essential to the project, can be very harmful to the immediate environment if extra care is not taken while carrying them out. Shrink wrapping ensures the public is kept safe and free from potential hazards when such activities are carried out. To ensure this extra level of protection is provided beyond our encapsulation service, we can upgrade your requirements to our Containment package.
This service involves skill and expertise to identify potential problem areas and site specific risk assessments. Containment activities include asbestos removal, grit blasting, demolitions and industrial painting.
Asbestos removal is a highly sensitive activity because inhaling of the fibres/dust produced during the removal processes are extremely hazardous, cancerous and in many cases fatal. Our containment shrink wrapping ensures an air-locked working environment, preventing any of these harmful substances from leaving the working area.
Using Shrink wrap for demolitions projects is ideal to keep dust and debris within the structure, helping to keep the workforce and surrounding environment safe.
Again with industrial blasting and painting, shrink wrap containments ensure nothing within the structure can escape, and no adverse weather conditions can get in. It is hugely advantageous all round.
Application of containment
Containment shrink wrapping is applicable in different sectors of the economy such as in packaging factories, chemical plants, nuclear power stations and even in hospitals. This method is highly recommended for any activity which is prone to hurt the surrounding environment. Containments help in reducing worker exposure to the general public, adjacent building occupants and sensitive areas.
To contain a structure, first we must encapsulate it as close to the ground as possible. An attention to detail is essential as even the smallest hole can compromise the seal. Additional items are added such as 'skirts' and batten to seal up any gaps there may be around the whole structure, achieving an air tight working environment in the process. Zip doors are then added to ensure that workers can access and exit the working areas without compromising the containment.
