Safety Using Shrink Wrap

Get in touch


The effectiveness of shrink wrap

Shrink wrap provides a form of protection which other alternatives including Monarflex cannot compare to. For instance, if a client has undertaken the renovation of a site that mainly involves fixing loosely fitted tiles, which are hazardous to anyone walking below in case any of them slips and fall. These heavy objects would easily pierce through many alternatives such as the above mentioned. They may even cause the covering to detach and will still harm anyone walking by.

Shrink wrap is incredibly robust and is more superior to the other options as it would not allow any object break through the barrier it renders. Additionally, know the type of shrink wrap you are going to purchase because of the ubiquity of counterfeits in the market. Fake shrink wrap will not stand the test
of time and will tear easily thus may be a risk to everyone. It would take an immense quantity of pressure to be able to tear into the shrink wrapping. This facilitates the safety of the general public in case of any activity being carried out.

Safety measures during installation

In the past, we have witnessed installers climb onto structures without any form of harness or scaffold boards to assist. A system was put in place to avail installers with all sorts of protection as they carry on with their tasks. This includes access to all parts of the scaffold structure using lifts and ladders of all
sizes to enable ease of reaching a particular place. Also, in case of activity like a demolition, they ensure the entire area is clear before administering the use of explosives which if not carefully done could do more harm than good. The workers are also supposed to operate these explosives from a safe distance to ensure their safety.

Also, the installation has to be carried out by professionals as there are many instructions to be followed which if not done the right way could lead harm the public or even your employees. Therefore, desist from installing it yourself as you may also be endangering yourself and the public. Climbing on structures is sometimes very dangerous especially if done the wrong way. Moreover, protective gear should be worn during encapsulation which involves heating so that the shrink wrap can tighten around the scaffold. All these and more safety measures should be undertaken to ensure everyone involved in the process is protected.

Health and Safety

Health and Safety are increasingly becoming the most integral part of the construction industry. These two are achieved by ensuring that every worker has a favourable safety and working provisions suited to the job they are doing. Also, by ensuring that the activity being carried out, be it construction,
demolition or even transportation of goods, does not harm the general public or wildlife. Shrink wrap facilitates safety by providing a layer of protection which cannot harm anything around it. Since scaffold shrink wrap is still on the market, grab one to ensure that safety is taken into account as we carry on
with our daily lives.
