1. Scaffold Wrapping : Training Overview 2. Why shrink wrap? SHRINKS DRUM TIGHT = less site visits to repair wind damage WELDED JOINS BETWEEN SHEETS = better containment & weather protection IMPROVED APPEARANCE = happier customers & more repeat work 3.

He supervises one of the Rhino installation teams and spends the majority of his time on site carrying out scaffold shrink wrapping. 4. Where? We can provide training on a temporary structure at your yard / premises or on a live job. No classroom is required as the course is based mainly on assessment of practical skills. How many? We find a ratio of 4 trainees to one trainer is ideal but up to 6 is possible. What equipment will I need? We can provide a start up kit consisting of heat gun(s), shrink wrap film, patch tape and clips which can then be used going forward on your first shrink wrap project. How long? An initial training session on a small scaffolding structure at your site for a team of 4 will typically last 4-6 hours. Live job training generally lasts longer and may be 2-3 days depending on your requirements. Is a certificate issued? Certification is based on a practical assessment of shrink wrapping skills by our trainer and a short multiple choice test. This practical assessment and scoring is the same system we use for training our own installation teams. We provide copies of these records and certificates so that you can provide evidence of the competencies of your team to your customers. Essential information 5.
