About pallet heat shrink systems

A pallet shrink wrap system enables you to improve the stability of pallet loads, securing cartons and boxes to form a safe and secure load. As a heavyweight alternative to standard stretch pallet wrap, pallet shrink wrap allows you to safely secure even the most obscure shaped items to a pallet in preparation for shipping.

Kite Packaging stocks two different types of heat shrink gun suitable for all kinds of warehousing and logistics operations, these apply shrink wrap to a pallet using a heat source, so that items are securely wrapped to a pallet and movement in transit is minimised. Because of the heating element involved safety goggles and gloves are recommended when using the guns, and when you buy from Kite, these are included with the tool. We have tailored our heat shrink offering so that you can purchase all three elements including the gun, gas cylinder trolley and heat shrink wrap roll dispenser in one place – we also stock several types of heat shrink wrap, including pallet covers here.

Video: How to apply a heat shrink pallet cover
Watch how to use our polythene pallet covers and heat shrink gun to protect and secure pallet loads.

Place the polythene pallet cover loosely over the pallet.

Ensure the bottom of the cover is tucked under the pallet.

Use the heat gun to shrink the film around the pallet, starting at the bottom.

Wave the gun over each side over the pallet to shrink all sides. You may need to do this several times.

Apply heat to the gusset flaps and pat down to seal the top.

As the polythene shrinks around the pallet, it will tighten and creases will disappear.
