Can I recycle Verisafe scaffold shrink wrap?

Yes, Verisafe Scaffold Shrink Wrap is 100% recyclable. At Polythene UK we constantly strive for improved environmental responsibility and subsequently want our products to reflect this. You can find out more about our green commitment here.

Please note: once the shrink wrap has been used it cannot be reused.

How long can the shrink wrap last?

The shrink wrap will have a lifespan of approximately 12 months at 48 degrees. Any longer is unusual as the sheeting includes UVI (Ultra Violet Inhibitor) which can begin to disintegrate over time. A key advantage for Verisafe Shrink Wrap is its malleable strength which can prevent tears and detached sheeting, significantly reducing any repair costs.

What equipment is needed to install scaffold shrink wrap?

One of the most important pieces of equipment you’ll need is a shrink wrap heat gun. This gun is designed to give a tight, consistent and professional appearance to scaffold cladding. Our highly qualified team at Polythene UK can install the scaffold wrap so you can be certain it is installed safely and effectively, contact us here for more information.
