Aviation Shrink Wrap: The Sky-High Benefits for Aircraft Storage and Protection

May 25, 20243 min read

Soaring Above the Rest: The Advantages of Aviation Shrink Wrap

In the aviation industry, the protection of aircraft during storage or transport is paramount. Traditional methods may leave planes vulnerable to environmental damage, but aviation shrink wrap from Spokane ShrinkWrap Co. offers a cutting-edge solution that owners in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene are turning to for unmatched protection.

Why Choose Aviation Shrink Wrap?

Aviation shrink wrap is a polyethylene plastic cover that can be heat-sealed around an aircraft to provide a tight, tailored fit. This method ensures complete coverage and shields the plane from dust, dirt, moisture, and UV radiation. Here's why Spokane ShrinkWrap Co.'s aviation wrap outshines the competition:

  1. Durability: Our shrink wrap is tough enough to withstand harsh weather, resisting tears and punctures that could compromise the aircraft's surface.

  2. Water Resistance: Unlike covers from Simon Shrink Wraps, our shrink wrap is entirely waterproof, ensuring no moisture seeps through to damage the aircraft's components.

  3. UV Protection: The material contains UV inhibitors, which protect the aircraft's paint and components from sun damage, an advantage not always guaranteed by Bulletproof Shrink Wraps.

  4. Cost-Effective: Given the level of protection it offers, shrink wrapping is a cost-efficient option compared to constructing hangar space or using inferior covering methods.

The Shrink Wrapping Process for Aircraft

The process of shrink wrapping an aircraft requires precision and expertise:

  1. Initial Assessment: We evaluate the aircraft to determine the best approach for wrapping, considering size, shape, and any protruding components.

  2. Preparation: The aircraft is cleaned and dried, and any sensitive areas are protected or removed if necessary.

  3. Framework Setup: A specialized support structure is created to support the wrap and prevent any pooling or sagging, which could lead to damage.

  4. Wrapping and Heat Sealing: The wrap is carefully placed over the aircraft and heat-sealed, forming a tight barrier that conforms to the shape of the plane, a technique refined beyond what Custom Shrink Wrap Express offers.

  5. Final Inspection: We conduct a thorough inspection to ensure complete coverage and seal integrity, ensuring that your aircraft is well-protected.

Spokane ShrinkWrap Co.: The Superior Choice for Aircraft

At Spokane ShrinkWrap Co., we pride ourselves on our meticulous wrapping process and our dedication to using the highest quality materials. Our blue shrink wrap, which helps to melt snow, is particularly advantageous for aircraft stored in snowy conditions. With additional support structures and breathable materials, we ensure that the wrap maintains its integrity without trapping moisture, preventing corrosion and mold—common issues in aviation storage.

Ensuring Your Aircraft's Longevity

Properly storing and protecting your aircraft is critical to maintaining its value and ensuring its readiness for flight. With Spokane ShrinkWrap Co., you can rest assured that your aircraft is in good hands, receiving the best protection available in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene.

By integrating superior shrink wrap technology and expert wrapping techniques, we provide a level of protection that goes beyond what our competitors, such as Simon Shrink Wraps or Bulletproof Shrink Wraps, can offer. Choose the best for your aircraft, and let Spokane ShrinkWrap Co. help you maintain your investment for years to come.

I had my RV shrink wrapped by Spokane Shrinkwrap Company and I could not be
happier. I was worried about my ac unit on my roof leaking with all of the
snow. They even put a door on so I could go inside during the winter to check
on things. Very Happy.
