COMPANY OVERVIEW

Since 1999, TuffWrap Installations has been transforming the dust and debris containment industry with its market-leading interior protection solutions. The purpose of TuffWrap products and services has been to protect a company—their employees and their inventory—from contamination, dust, and debris. Since that time, TuffWrap has continued to lead the industry by inventing new products and services that not only contain debris but also solve other issues like foul weather and facility shutdowns. TuffWrap services have expanded to include suspended cover, interior walls, and exterior walls. With our engineered products like SmartSeam suspended cover, we minimize liability exposure. Through code compliance and FM certification, a facility manager can be confident that employees and products are safe and operations are at maximum productivity.

TuffWrap focuses on the customer and meeting their needs. TuffWrap enables customers to avoid a complete shutdown of operation during construction. As companies run multiple shifts and even 24/7 production lines, the ability to minimize downtime is vitally important. The TuffWrap Project Team customizes its approach and creates solutions to address the specific requirements of each assignment.  Experienced and knowledgeable about our industry and products, they solve issues that arise during construction projects. Safety, reliability, and best practices make the difference when it comes to protecting our clients' people, products, and property.

TuffWrap products enable a company's operations to stay functional during ongoing construction or renovation work. All TuffWrap materials are anti-static, antimicrobial, and fire-resistant. This makes TuffWrap products suitable for highly sensitive areas like data centers where anti-static properties are vitally important. While appropriate for many environments, the products' antimicrobial properties are important in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, TuffWrap's patented Smart Seam suspended cover is 100% code compliant for installation below fire sprinklers. In case of a fire, SmartSeam keeps fire sprinklers operational. Engineered to be flexible and durable TuffWrap products can be customized to handle any application. TuffWrap protects people, products, and property while safely keeping facilities operational.

HYBRID WALLS AND INDUSTRIAL HYBRID WALLS
Two types of Hybrid Walls Provide Stability and Resilience in High Traffic Areas

Hybrid Walls and Industrial Hybrid Walls are two types of hybrid dust walls that provide stability and resilience in high-traffic areas. Hybrid Walls are cost-effective and durable. In addition, they help maintain a professional appearance during construction and protect inventory in the warehouse and retail settings. Hybrid Walls combine a C.O.R.E. Frameless Wall with TuffWrap's rigid TuffPanel® and with or without a pre-manufactured metal brace. Hybrid Walls are modular in design for clean, easy installation.

Standard Hybrid Walls have a four-foot high TuffPanel® base attached to the wall to protect against scuffs and punctures. TuffPanel® is designed for dust and debris containment applications requiring more rigidity and for areas with a large volume of personnel and equipment traffic. Industrial Hybrid Walls provide even greater strength and rigidity than the standard Hybrid Wall that uses TuffPanel®. A combination of C.O.R.E. Frameless Walls and fire-resistant plywood, reinforced with eight-foot plywood sheets to accommodate areas with heavy foot or vehicle traffic.

Worried about falling debris ruining a successful job?
HSDR services are commonly used during take down of suspended cover to remove project-related dust and debris from high, horizontal surfaces, avoiding additional problems

Dust and debris caused by a recent roofing project can settle onto exposed steel beams or closed drop ceilings. Over time, that dust may begin to circulate inside the facility because of airflow, causing additional problems.

TuffWrap offers two solutions for High-Structure Dust Removal. These solutions are not the same as a full-service clean.

  • HSDR Standard Solution involves blowing the dust off of reachable horizontal surfaces during the takedown of our suspended cover.

  • HSDR-V or HSDR with vacuum is used for jobs that require more extensive dust removal.

APPLICATIONS

  • Protecting food, beverage and pharmaceutical products from potential recall due to contamination.

  • Allowing personnel to continue work unimpeded.

  • Protecting sensitive machinery and electronics from damage.

  • Creating sealed walkways during floor resurfacing or drain replacement.
