Getting your products from the warehouse to your customers safely and without damage is obviously job one for any small business. Shipping boxes can be stacked to the rafters during your busy season, so it's important to do everything you can to keep products inside intact. Shrink wrapping your pallets can be an easy way to help keep boxes neatly stacked together and add stability, and using heat guns, glue guns and shipping guns to create a custom fit for shrink wrap on your pallets is an easy way to provide added protection for your stored goods.
One key feature to look at when selecting heat guns is the ability to adjust temperatures. Shrink wrap can be made of different materials with varying thickness, so being able to change temperatures allows you to carefully create a tight-fitting hold without melting or damaging the plastic wrap. A variable-temperature gun enables fine tuning to help you find just the right heat level, while other guns have preset temperatures for quick and easy use with no guesswork.
Another feature to examine is a built-in fan. Fans allow you to direct a variable amount of heat to a specific location on the shrink wrap, helping you to create a snug fit without damaging or destroying the plastic. Fans are also another way to control the temperature output, helping you make sure that the wrap is at an optimal temperature to be molded into a secure hold that will keep the pallet stable without placing undue pressure on the boxes.
