Reinforced plastic sheeting

The Many Uses of Reinforced Plastic Sheeting

Reinforced plastic sheeting is one of the most versatile products that Americover carries. From being used in construction projects to being used in healthcare settings, reinforced plastic sheeting can accomplish a wide range of duties. Reinforced plastic sheeting is created by laminating layers of virgin high strength polyethylene with a heavy-duty scrim reinforcement sandwiched in the center. This creates a strong film offering excellent tear resistance that will last much longer than construction-grade poly.

In Healthcare

When you hear about plastic sheeting, many times you associate it with construction or a DIY project. But reinforced plastic sheeting can also play a large role in containing areas during remodels and construction and protecting certain instruments and machinery.

Reinforced Plastic Sheeting can be used for:

  • Temporary enclosures/walls
  • Dust containment
  • Building enclosures
  • Protecting equipment/jobsite

In Construction

Reinforced plastic sheeting can be used for almost any project dealing with construction. From being used as a simple barrier to erosion control, plastic sheeting is very important in construction.

Reinforced Plastic Sheeting can be used for:

  • Vapor & moisture barriers
  • Dust containment
  • Building enclosures
  • Protecting equipment/jobsite
  • Secondary containments
  • Temporary Liners
  • Erosion control
  • Asbestos abatement
  • Remediation covers
  • Insulation membranes

In Agriculture

Agricultural projects also benefit from reinforced plastic sheeting to protect delicate crops or to act as a liner for aquaponics operations. Plastic sheeting can protect some crops from direct sunlight or heat of their environment and is commonly used for greenhouse covers and light deprivation processes.

Reinforced Plastic Sheeting can be used for:

  • Liners/covers
  • Greenhouse covers
  • Aquaponics liners
  • Silage Covers
  • Light deprivation

Reinforced Plastic Sheeting Options

Reinforced plastic sheeting is available in different thicknesses, from 6mil to 20mil. The thickness of the sheeting needed will depend on the anticipated project and environment it’ll be used in. There are also a wide range of color choices with clear, white, black, white/black (one on each side), and offwhite (fire retardant versions). The choice in color also relies heavily on the project; for example, clear is often used for growing operations as well as construction. Fire retardant plastic sheeting is mainly used in construction and healthcare facilities to reduce risk, follow code, and to provide extra precautions.
