Scaffolding Encapsulation

Scaffolding encapsulation is beneficial in a number of ways. Not only does it protect your work area and equipment from the elements, but it can also effectively keep debris and dust from being spread across the site. There are several options available for protecting your project, including advanced shrink wrap systems designed to create an improved seal.
