What’s the secret to successful scaffold wrapping?

The success of your shrink wrap sheeting jobs depend on the quality of the shrink wrap material you use and your installation skills. But, not all shrink wrap is manufactured the same.

Much scaffold shrink wrap available on the market today is general purpose plastic sheeting that is being sold as ‘scaffold wrap’ by sales people who have never set foot on a construction site. This makes us mad! We believe that it shouldn’t cost you any extra to get an engineered product developed specifically for the construction market and backed up by detailed installation knowledge.

What is Rhino Shrink Wrap?

Rhino Shrink Wrap is a heat-shrink plastic sheeting made of low density polyethylene (LDPE) that offers a professional lining which protects both the interior and the exterior, creating a smooth and perfectly applied protective layer

Its main features are

✓ High biaxial shrinkage factor (> 40%)
✓ Excellent firmness
✓ Ability of hot welding between individual sheets
✓ Variety of available rolls
✓ Unlimited coverage capability
✓ Special Flame retardant material
✓ Ultraviolet inhibitor for added strength

Our materials are divided into 3 categories:

Marine / Industrial Grade

Commonly used for shipbuilding, packaging equipment, scaffolding and work booths

Flame Retardant

Commonly used for petrochemical projects industry, sandblasting residue reduction and scaffold coverage and creating work booths when hot jobs are to be performed

Custom specifications

Such as longer life material or black (instead of white), which serve specific requirements of each customer and are available only upon order

Due to the flawless application, an excellent one is created robust investment. Welded joints between the sheets ensure a particularly effective protection and insulation

What makes Rhino Wrap different?

Rhino Wrap is engineered tough for the construction market. Manufactured for 15+ years at our ISO 9001 accredited facilities.

Engineered for tensile strength & impact tolerance means Rhino Sheeting can withstand high wind loading.

Our shrink wrap welds strong and shrinks powerfully, which makes it easier to install, even in challenging conditions. We also provide approved flame retardant wrap to the European standard EN-13501 for total peace of mind.

Stays fixed, even in high winds

A Rhino Shrink Wrap cover is heat shrunk to create a ‘drum tight’ and tear resistant covering over any size or shape product. Shrink wrap transport covers overcome the disadvantages of conventional covers, such as tarpaulins, that can detach and cause damage during transport. The other major benefit is that because sections are heat welded together, it creates a continuously bonded skin without holes or gaps typical of traditional transport covers.

Increases Security

Using a Rhino shrink wrap transport cover keeps a product hidden from view. Lockable zipped access doors can be fitted in any number of custom locations to allow inspections by customs officials for example.

Professional Appearance

A Rhino shrink wrap cover does not look like any other type of cover. The smooth white finish looks smart and professional and because it fits ‘drum tight’, it is extremely resistant to high winds. Once at site, a Rhino Shrink Wrap cover is easy to remove and recycle. Because a Rhino shrink wrap transport cover is used once and then recycled, it also eliminates the extra cost of maintaining or returning re-usable covers.


Each member of the Rhino shrink wrap installation team undergoes an extensive internal induction and training program that includes on the job competency and assessment.

Team members also participate in industry recognised training courses accredited by the following official organisations:
