Rolling Stock

Tufcoat shrink-wrap creates a strong and durable cover keeping trains, equipment and assets protected during transport and storage.

Working within the rail sector Tufcoat supply and install manufactured shrink-wrap covers to protect rolling stock assets for storage but also during repair and maintenance periods.

Applying this innovative protection to rolling stock sector, we offer a unique solution built upon our extensive experience within the aerospace and wider engineering sectors, our covers are made from polyethlene which has a superior fit to conventional covers and are 100% recyclable.

We have wrapped single engines and multiple carriages, these projects share the same basic need, to keep items in the desired condition for extended periods of time.

Whether for a long journey on an exposed low-loader or being sat outside through all weather conditions, choosing the right protection for the units is vital.

Conventional covers have the benefit of being able to be used multiple times, however, this is based on the idea that they are returned after the first use, and that no damage has occurred. Tufcoat rolling stock covers mitigate the need to return, clean and maintain conventional covers.
