Cold Weather Containment Systems for the Canadian Winter

January 29th, 2018 | in Industrial Shrink Wrap

Asbestos or toxic dust containment and abatement is a challenging task in the best of conditions. Sending a highly-trained crew of experienced workers into a life-threatening situation presents numerous hazards. Ensuring that the dust and debris is removed and doesn’t enter the surrounding environment is an ongoing concern that doesn’t end until the final day of the job.

When you add a Canadian winter into the equation, all those challenges, problems, and concerns become much greater.
Usually, when faced with removing asbestos and toxic dust in an outdoor or cold environment, companies will rely on an engineered scaffold and shrink-wrap containment. A thick layer of thermo plastic is cut, wrapped and shrunk drum tight around the structure that is being decontaminated, and then heat-welded into place so that it clings tightly to the surface.
