Shipping HVAC Equipment? Just Say WOW!

Powder coating and applying surface treatments to HVAC equipment has long been the widely-accepted standard. And if you manufacture powder coated metals for HVAC equipment, you know all too well the frustrations associated with shipping damages. Simply put, the typical shipping materials and methods for HVAC equipment leave a lot to be desired. 

Fortunately, Frank Lowe's new WOW Pads are engineered to provide superior protection for HVAC parts and components. These small but mighty pads are built for your specific HVAC component and will protect your hard work throughout transportation, shipping, and storage. Continue reading to learn why WOW Pads are the best protective solution for shipping HVAC equipment. 

What Are WOW Pads for Shipping HVAC Equipment? 

Frank Lowe's new WOW Pads empower you to stack, pack and ship a variety of HVAC equipment and components with reduced product returns and damages. These compact, powerful compression pads are manufactured from either NeoRebond or White Polyfoam material. Because one-size-fits-all solutions rarely ever work, each WOW Pad is specially die-cut in the most ideal dimension and thickness based on your product. 

The engineering team at Frank Lowe will partner with you to create the most ideal WOW Pad for your application. WOW Pads are proven to offer superior protection for shipping HVAC equipment. These pads protect your components and parts from rattling, shifting, and impacts that commonly lead to dents, chips, scratches, and other types of damages. A few key attributes of WOW Pads include:

  1. Reduces friction throughout shipping and transportation.
  2. Boasts remarkable compression and recoil, which means the pads will absorb bumps and impacts and return to form. 
  3. Prevents twists and shifts during transportation that often results in product damage. 
  4. Anti-skid characteristics that will help stabilize your HVAC product throughout shipping. 
  5. Proven to protect powder-coated HVAC products as well as other metal surface finish treatments. 
  6. Can be die-cut on a roll based on the weight and parameters of your HVAC product. 
  7. WOW Pads are not abrasive and will continue to perform in snow, rain, and other elements.
  8. All WOW Pads are made in the USA, and NeoRebond WOW Pads are manufactured from recycled materials. 

WOW Pads Are Easy to Apply to HVAC Components

If you're using traditional packaging materials to ship your HVAC components, your employees are more than likely wasting time preparing the product for shipment. Whether it's bubble wrap, thin foam rolls, corrugated packaging, or kraft paper, all of these solutions take up a lot of time. This valuable time can be redirected to profit-driving activities. 

Instead of wasting time with traditional packaging methods, WOW Pads are designed to be applied in two easy steps. Without the need for scissors, tape, heat, or other materials, you only need to peel the protective backing and then apply the pads on strategic locations of your product. All WOW Pads feature a removable pressure-sensitive adhesive designed to create a durable bond. 

Once the product arrives at the final destination, the end-user simply removes the WOW Pad. These pads create a fraction of the waste created by other packaging methods, which leads to much better customer experiences. And when the WOW Pad is removed, it will not damage your product or leave any residue. 

Why Choose WOW Pads for Shipping HVAC Equipment?

Whether you manufacture fan guards, fan blades, AC cages, or any other HVAC part; it's critical to protect the product throughout storage, transportation, and shipping. However, when you ship HVAC components that have any type of metal finishing or powder-coated surface treatment, your product needs the robust, multi-dimensional protection of WOW Pads. 

Failure to properly protect your powder-coated or finished HVAC equipment can result in chips, dents, and other damages to the finish, which can negate the many benefits of powder coating and surface treatment:

  • Powder-coated components can resist corrosion by alkalies and acids. If the HVAC component's finish is damaged during shipping, it will be perceived as lesser quality due to expedited rusting.
  • Powder-coated parts have extra protection from weather elements. If the powder coating is damaged or chipped, the part will be more subject to degradation due to the elements.
  • Powder-coated products just look better! But nothing looks worse than a powder-coated component that is chipped and damaged. Even if the damage occurs during shipping, it can reflect poorly on your craftsmanship and workmanship.
  • Although powder-coated products can be damaged, they do work to protect against physical wear and abrasion. The rigors of transportation, friction, and bumps can easily cause the finish to get scratched. When this happens, the underlying metal will be exposed to premature damage.

No matter the surface finish or metal used, if it arrives at the end-user damaged, the customer will not be happy. This leads to increased damaged product returns and can ultimately cost you valuable business. Instead of leaving it to chance or using sub-par HVAC equipment shipping materials, WOW Pads will deliver the protection your product deserves.
