Pro Tips

Here are a few pro tips to help you stretch wrap your doors and windows more efficiently.

  • For the first time, start with a film tension of around 50% and two to three top and bottom rotations.
  • Try to use slower speeds and less tension on the initial setup for any new loads. Work your way up from there to optimize cycle time and load containment.
  • Use a puncture-resistant film, or lower film tension if the corners of the doors or windows are punching through the stretch wrap.
  • For outlier products, consider using an overwrap delay (“flanging time”).
  • Ensure that you get the film band up high enough to “catch” on the top layer of the load you’re wrapping.
  • Leverage the extended base and larger turntable of the 1200 UL stretch wrapper.
