Scaffold Cladding

A Bit on the Side Ltd uses its own type of cladding which has unique properties to ensure a safe and effective scaffold covering.


Duraclad is specially designed to fit 2 metre lifts - to do this the sheeting is 2.25 metres wide. The cladding is flexible enough to cover several different angles in one continuous run thus ensuring a tight barrier.

Many alternatives to Duraclad cannot be cut and rejoined effectively. Duraclad can be joined very effectively which is most useful when scaffold is not flush.

Duraclad cladding is not a solid sheet but made up of a tight weave of plastic fibres. The advantage of this is that a certain amount of wind can penetrate the sheet. This reduces the wind loading on the scaffold, and also allows the sheet to be joined effectively.

Working under a false roof in the summer can be very hot, especially if the sides of the scaffold are sheeted with a Monarflex type material. Duraclad cladding is breathable and can be used in combination with other types of cladding to ensure sufficient ventilation.

Duracald cladding can be used on a much wider variety of jobs as it is not dependent on being attached at pre-specified anchorage points.

To summarise the advantages of Duraclad cladding are:


A Bit on the Side Ltd have worked all over the country using a Monarflex type material for many different applications from small houses to the M5 Avonmouth Bridge. A Monarflex type material can be used for protection against the weather, and thereby providing a dry working environment and containing dust and rubble.

All Monarflex type material supplied by us is compliant to BS3432 and BS8093.
