EnCaPS

EnCaPS has over 25 years of combined installation and management experience, providing our clients with the best methods to optimise scaffold structures alongside the most dependable and efficient shrink wrapping techniques to deliver fantastic results. We would like to share our experience and expertise in Shrink Wrap installations and highlight the challenges that are being faced by the construction industry nowadays.

There are things to be considered by Construction Project Managers before choosing the type of scaffold wrap:

  • What is the project duration and are you ready to fix any future damage to the wrap before the project is done?

  • What are your clients looking to see?

  • What kind of work will be going on during the construction, with that answer in mind? A wrap that will contain the elements will be the best choice.

  • How much time will it take to install the wrap because the time it takes to install the wrap is part of the duration given to complete the construction work?

Shrink Wrap thick all the boxes not only because of the effectiveness and cost-saving of the whole project but also being a durable and versatile solution for all types of building sites.

The construction companies are under the constant pressure to deliver complete projects in the shortest possible time, especially nowadays when the whole industry is facing long delays caused by the lockdown and the global pandemic situation.


Shrink Wrap services more than ever become extremely important first of all because of their versatility, durable product and impact on reducing the project’s completion time.


Shrink Wrap installations protect the building site and allow workers to make progress despite variable weather conditions.


Why should you use a shrink wrap installation on your next project?


7 benefits of a scaffold shrink wrap:


  1. Temporary Weather Protection - shrink wrap acts as a reliable, weather-resistance barrier, prevents rain from seeping into a wall and stops build-up moisture within cavity walls

  2. Total Costs Reduction and Minimising Delays - when shrink wrap is installed around the building the interior work can be initiated prior the completion of final external cladding that can help address the problem of project overruns and associated cots

  3. Versatility - shrink wrap services can be used on all shapes and sizes structures, their usage leads to less wear and tear, the material is lightweight and can be applied fast

  4. Fire Resistance - shrink wrap material is safe and flame retardant, and can be used in all types of projects required on the construction site

  5. Environment Friendly - shrink wrap is extremely easy to remove and 100% recyclable

  6. Protection from UV Light - shrink wrap contains UV inhibitors protecting the elements of the construction project without blocking the access of the natural light to the site

  7. Professional Appearance and Public Safety - shrink wrap installations provide a neat and clean look to scaffold sites and protect the public from the side effects of all building works, what is always required in city centres or busy public areas


Shrink Wrap services are now a necessity for construction sites and provide not only protection but offer a much more professional, affordable, and smarter solution than traditional alternatives.

Shrink Wrap structures serve well as a temporary roofing solution during the refurbishment process, but there are a few things that need to be considered before starting the project.



When constructing scaffolding for the roof it should allow for a decent run off for rainwater. The minimum pitch on the roof should be 10% and no more than 20%.

For medium to large size temporary roofs, there is a greater amount of additional scaffolding that we need to ensure a safe install.



The general rule of thumb is a double handrail with a three board-wide run around the perimeter. This first step enables our installers to clip on to the handrail and move around safely and to position the shrink wrap rolls ready to roll out over the span of the roof itself.



We would also require a run of two or three boards at every 1.5m centers running adjacent with your beam-work. These essentially become our walkways so we can move around the whole perimeter and around on the roof with ease.
