Scaffold shrink-wrap protects the workforce from adverse weather as well as helping contain environmental contamination during construction.
Scaffold shrink-wrap creates a temporary barrier around a scaffold, providing weather protection and environmental containment, enabling contractors to avoid delays caused by changes in weather and reduce any pollution caused by activities such as grit blasting.
Shrink-wrap can be installed to create temporary roofs or wrap elevations and has the unique feature of forming a drum-tight covering which considerably reduces damage caused by high winds.
While no sheeting can provide a 100% guarantee against water ingress, Scaffold shrink-wrap is consistently chosen by contractors because it creates superior containments under the most demanding conditions, by creating drum tight seals from ground level, around scaffolding and capped by a temporary roof.
Scaffold shrink-wrap can also be modified with the addition of zip doors and self-adhesive zips, allowing access to a site by workers and heavy plant, which can be resealed to maintain the integrity of a site.

How does scaffold shrink-wrap work?
For aesthetics, horizontal sheeting rails can be fixed to the outside of the scaffold at the top and bottom of the sheeting requirement.
Where a horizontal join between sheets is required, (normally every 6 metres or 3 lifts), two sheeting ledgers can be installed, approximately 20cm apart.
After welding onto the scaffold, sheets are heat shrunk using a propane gas tool.
Methods will vary dependant on the project.
Scaffolding must be designed for sheeting.
