For Safety, Privacy, and Weather Protection
Scaffold Enclosures come in a wide variety; from debris mesh, scaffold netting, to shrink wrap, and monarflex, Northstar has your enclosure needs covered. (pun intended!) Scaffold enclosures provide scaffold users and weather-sensitive structures or equipment protection from the elements by surrounding the perimeter of the scaffold with either a woven netting or impermeable membrane.
At Northstar Access, we offer a variety of enclosure and netting options ranging from single- layer poly tarping to fully enclosed composite panels.
Extend your construction season with a winter enclosure. Construction work in Canada often requires a weather-protected covered area and our winter enclosure options can help keep project safe and on time. No more water damaged materials or days off for bad weather means faster project completion with safer job sites!
Northstar has decades of experience in building temporary roofs and enclosures in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors. You can check out some of our winter enclosure projects here.
"Our winter enclosure systems allow construction sites to continue on time and on budget. With proper tarping and heating systems, crews can continue to work through seasonal climates."
Customizable Scaffold Enclosure Options
DEBRIS MESH OR NETTING ENCLOSURES:
Wind-piercing debris netting allows airflow and improves job site safety by containing debris and construction materials. Debris Mesh enclosures are commonly used for scaffolding enclosures, guardrail debris protection, wind screen or as shade cloths. The knitted mesh design provides containment of small and chunk debris and is highly tear resistant. Our debris netting rolls have finished hemmed edges with reinforced eyelet button holes for easy, safe and secure fastening and installation.
Debris Mesh Advantages:
- Protects dust, debris & tools from falling
- Protect workers, pedestrians & adjacent properties
- Creates a protective scaffolding enclosure
- Creates a wind block or shade cloth
- Provides a visual barrier for added privacy
- Remains flexible in all-weather climates
MONARFLEX SCAFFOLD SHEETING:
Monar Flex is a custom engineered material is used to cover scaffolds which serves as a climate shield to protect workers and machinery against rain, wind, and snow, however it is not guaranteed to be waterproof. Enclosing your scaffold with Monarflex protects the surrounding environment from any construction debris, such as particles or dust. Monarflex is designed with a breakaway feature that reinforces wind safety and can help protect the integrity of your building. Additionally, with 90% light transparency, this material provides your site the protection needed without blocking daylight from your enclosed space. With the ability to reposition this material our masonry and stucco clients find this enclosure option to very helpful.
Monarflex System Advantages:

Fireproof, strong, and affordable, Shrink Wrap prevents harmful particles from entering the environment, minimizes leaks, and ensures a tidy and organized job site. We find that our clients out West commonly use Shrink Wrap for quick and effective temporary roofing solutions.
