Shrink Wrap Containment and Scaffold for Historic preservation

Jul 3, 2012


Fast Wrap was recently contracted to provide shrink wrap on one of San Francisco’s iconic land marks, the Alcatraz Water Tower. The tower is being refurbished to its original condition and Fast Wrap is providing shrink wrap containment, for sandblasting and painting operations, while work is in progress. Fast Wraps mobile shrink wrap technicians performed the wrapping services the first week of March, installing wrap and banding to keep the tank protected. Alcatraz operated by the National Park Service hosts a wide variety of threatened and endangered species. Fast Wrap’s unique containment system insures this fragile ecosystem is minimally impacted by the restoration of the water tower and surrounding buildings. The Fast Wrap shrink wrap containment is visible from various San Francisco locations and will be in place through August of 2012.
Fast Wrap will begin wrapping additional restoration and abatement projects at Alcatraz. The project known as the seven bridges will be shrink wrapped, providing containment for lead abatement, sandblasting and coatings applications. Fast Wrap will use scaffolding to support the wrap during abatement and coatings applications. Fast Wraps shrink wrap insures full compliance with SSPC Technology Guide No. 6. 
Keep your eyes on another San Francisco landmark on historic Alcatraz. Fast Wrap was again the containment provider of choice for the National Park Service for the restoration of the famous guard tower, scheduled to start work in the fall of 2012. Fast Wrap will post pictures once the work starts.
