Envirowraps

ENVIROWRAP is a polyethylene shrinkwrap material. It is heat-applied to the scaffold structure and forms a taut bonded cladding façade. It looks smarter than conventional cladding because it is moulded more closely to the structure it contains. This will include any projections or extensions, and even circular or trapezoidal shapes.

Containment and environmental protection
The shrink-fitting of ENVIROWRAP over the entire scaffold and projections creates a continuous bonded skin that prevents particles of paint or dust escaping into the natural environment.

Envirowrap is a fire retardant, puncture resistant, thermo plastic film formulated with linear and low-density, heat-sensitive resins. A proprietary blend of virgin resins and fractional melt polyethylene results in uniform bi-axial shrinking and super strength.

Envirowrap shrinks 25% of its surface dimension after heating to form a drum-tight weatherproof barrier around any object, framework, scaffolding or cable system. It also contains hindered amine and ultra violet inhibitors (UVI) to protect against sun damage and Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) to retain elasticity and to prevent brittleness from exposure to extreme cold. The film is fire rated so burn holes will not easily propagate.
