Tufcoat developed Wraphix™ to add an additional visual value to our scaffold shrink-wrap range of products. Branding is often requested when speaking to new customers and the only available options are stickers or PVC banners, products at opposite ends of a price spectrum!
Wraphix™ printed shrink-wrap uses Tufcoat Certifire 300-micron flame retardant film to comply with the highest standards onsite and also to match our other Certifire product range should the branded sections be used in addition to non-branded shrink-wrap.
We have combined high-quality digital print, using flame retardant inks, with our own 300-micron flame retardant shrink-wrap to enable logos and imagery to be printed directly onto our wrap for the first time eliminating additional requirements for working at height.

Getting the design right!
Our in-house creative team will work with existing artwork or help create print-ready designs for your approval planning the layout to look great on the scaffold.
Wraphix™ printed shrink-wrap uses Certifire Flame retardant 300-micron shrink-wrap combined with FR rated Ink, approved to TS62 and TS63.
How does printed shrink-wrap work?
Wraphix™ Printed Shrink-wrap is produced on a specially designed 3.2m wide roll, which can be printed in lengths up to 30m, we advise this maximum length due to the weight of the roll, however strips can be welded together to create a continuous appearance.
To create the branded lift additional ledgers must be installed level with the top hand rails to span 2 lifts. This 2m distance will allow the material to be welded at the top and bottom to hide the welds.
I think the actual two weeks that they had to install was reduced down to about six days. So we put Tufcoat under a great deal of pressure with a new product and they really stole the show with what was produced in the end.
We’ve had lots of comments from the media and through social media, so it’s worked well for us.

The end result was actually better than what we had imagined. We’ve had major contractors come to us since and ask about who supplied us with the printed wrap”.
