Tower Bridge renovation – Scaffold Shrink Wrap Encapsulation

Tufcoat contributed to the £4million Tower Bridge renovation programme.Tower Bridge renovation

1,500 tonnes of expendable abrasive is being used to blast Tower Bridge back to its metal framework,  before 22,000 litres of paint is used to restore the traditional blue and white colour which dates back to 1894. Tufcoat have been chosen to encapsulate this internationally recognised landmark to catch old paintwork as it falls, protecting Thames River life.

Tufcoat is a durable cladding which is heat shrunk to create a continuously bonded skin over the roof and sides of scaffold structures without the holes or gaps typical of traditional cladding systems. Tufcoat is recommended for projects where high level of environmental containment or weather protection is required. We can also provide a final seal service for additional containment.

By creating a ‘drum tight’ and tear resistant covering, Tufcoat is able to stand up to the most severe weather conditions. This eliminates the problem of detached sheets and emergency repairs. Should it be necessary to gain access through the plastic shrink wrap scaffold sheeting, i.e. for craneage, Tufcoat shrink wrap can be cut open and re-sealed to maintain 100% containment.

Tufcoat supply shrink wrap sheeting direct to the construction industry. Alternatively, installation services can be provided by our installation team. Tufcoat are an ISO9001 accredited company and NASC members.
