Transhield is a unique solution for transportation and road damage before delivery to the final destination.
Transhield provides custom fit covers to protect against abrasion and condensation during storage and shipping for equipment and components from the power industry.
Founded in 1994, the US company develops and manufactures its patented shrinkable fabrics, a modified shrink film (laminated) or a soft non-woven material. This allows for heat shrinking and a tight fit, with a non-abrasive cloth-like lining to protect finishes from damage.
Transhield’s Shrinkable Fabric™ features the patented adhesive additive delivery-vapor corrosion inhibitor (AAD-VCI) system, which provides 100% protection from corrosion during transportation and storage.
The covers consist of three layers: an outer layer that is UV-resistant and anti-condensation, a middle adhesive layer and a soft inner layer. These covers offer a tight fit for quality protection, are easy to install and have the ability to shrink.
Custom-made covers and shrinkable fabric for use on wind turbine components
The shrinkable fabric covers serve as an alternative for heavy, custom tarps for wind power applications, used products such as tower sections, root ends and blades. Various openings can be designed into the covers, such as zip or Velcro, for access or different trailer configurations with wind tower section covers.
Easy-to-install and shrinkable, the wind power covers allow for a tight fit to protect the product from dirt and water during shipping and storage, resulting in quality protection from the factory to the field.
Transhield also creates custom covers for a wide variety of other power generation and distribution applications.
Protecting power industry components from corrosion during transportation and storage
