Scaffold Shrink-wrap

Scaffold shrink-wrap protects the workforce from adverse weather as well as helping contain environmental contamination during construction.

Creating a weld using scaffoldshrink-wrap

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.

Shrink-wrapped scaffolds create contained sites, protect workers and look great too!

I would like to thank the Tufcoat team who carried out the work on the Auxiliary Pipe Bridge project, their general attitude and work ethic are a great credit to Tufcoat and made our work much easier.

Scaffold shrink-wrap

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.

What makes Our scaffold shrink-wrap different?

Tufcoat shrink-wrap is manufactured to our unique formula.

We don’t repackage other companies products which gives us control over our manufacturing process, maintained in accordance with ISO14001 and ISO9001 – a standard which we have maintained since 2005.

As a premium product, Tufcoat 300 micron shrink-wrap is approved by Warringtonfire Certifire scheme tested annually to TS62 and TS63, it also complies with BS: EN13501 class B, d0, s1.

We can install the scaffold shrink-wrap using our own expert specialists or we can provide the training and materials to anyone wishing to do it themselves.
