Dr. Notes – News from Mike
“Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. It was a hot one in Manistee, reaching temperatures of almost 90 degrees Fahrenheit. In case you missed our New Product introductions from last month’s newsletter, we have put them in again. The SeatSaver, Rhino Cap, and Lightning Vent are the perfect additions to our innovative product line.
I would like to remind our Michigan and Wisconsin customers of our Recycling Run for removed shrink wrap covers in need of recycling. Registration Forms are due middle of June (please see the section below for more details). If you are located in other states, take a look at our REBAG Recycling System for an easy way to recycle your shrink wrap cover(s). Wishing everyone a great start to the summer season.”
– Mike Stenberg – President & CEO, Dr. Shrink, Inc.
Construction & Scaffolding Industry
This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Construction & Scaffolding Industry. The construction industry can yield huge profit margins and is a 12 month shrink wrap business. Government and large building contacts will often require scaffolding and exterior containment and shrink wrap is the most cost effective and durable material that can be used. Available in Extreme 12-mil and up to 60′ in width, with Flame Retardant sizes also available, the Dr. provides the largest rolls of film available on the market.
A construction site can be a vulnerable place. Whether it’s the construction of a new building or renovation/add-on to an existing one, there’s the risk of weather eroding all the hard work or ceasing it for a long period of time. For example, water damage – whether it’s rain entering the structure, melting snow, or leaks – is the most frequent cause of loss during building projects. Shrink wrapping a building or scaffolding on a construction site means not only protecting the work, but workers and productivity as well.
Dr. Shrink’s premium shrink wrap shrinks “drum-tight” and is far more effective than traditional tarps and sheeting. This durable, weatherproof covering creates a proper enclosure and protects the project from potential damage. Additionally, our shrink wrap creates an improved work environment. Our white shrink wrap allows natural, shadow-free lighting while blocking harmful UV rays. Worker downtime is reduced and the enclosure can even be heated and cooled.

New products from Dr. Shrink, Inc. available this month!
– SeatSaver – an all new revolutionary product that is ideal for any pontoon boat with seat backs that are exposed above the upper rail which come in contact with strapping and shrink wrap material. The SeatSaver fits on all 1.25″ square tubing top rails on pontoon boats and provides either a 2″ or 4″ lift of the strapping over the vinyl seat backs, preventing damage to seat backs from strapping abrasion and indentation. See our SeatSaver Flyer for more details.
– Rhino Cap – Dr. Shrink is improving on its proven End Cap with this heavy duty Rhino Cap. Designed for optimum pole poke-through protection, the Rhino Cap features more surface area, greater strength, and strapping grooves to make your strapping structure easier to create and more durable than ever. The edges are strengthened around the entire perimeter to provide maximum strength against snow load. See our Rhino Cap Flyer for more details.
– Lightning Vent – Dr. Shrink’s new DS-LIGHTNING one-handed installation vent allows for easy and quick installation with an all new strap and friction hood which secures the vent to the cover with no taping required. The large hood over the vent opening offers better weather protection ensuring moisture and weather stays out of your wrapped items. See our Lightning Vent Flyer for more details.
