What Type of Plastic Sheeting Should I Use for My Event

For decades, Americover has supported and participated in all sorts of fun and wacky events which rely on plastic sheeting to properly set up. We’re sure you have heard of many of these events, but you may not have realized how important plastic sheeting was in putting these events on.  Here are some examples of events that use plastic sheeting and what they use it for.

Nothing makes spooky season extra eventful like a haunted house or corn maze. These events typically use plastic sheeting for blackout curtains, wall covers, or props.

The plastic sheeting used in these Fall events include:


Tough Mudder, Savage Race, & Wipe Out Run 

These wild obstacle courses are great fun and wouldn’t be what they are without plastic sheeting products. Obstacle races and fun runs use all sorts of plastic sheeting to create huge mud pits, slip n slides, and cover the ground to retain water.

The plastic sheeting used for these events includes:


Outdoor Ice Rink at Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium

Outdoor ice rinks need to be lined with plastic sheeting in order to be created. This includes major rinks like the one used by the NHL for the Winter Classic at Fenway Park in Massachusetts, “The Big House” at the University of Michigan, and the Yankee Stadium.
