Shrink Wrapping Knife - Buying Guide
There are many industrial knives on the market. However, these of features will make your scaffold shrink wrapping jobs more successful.
Make sure the knife you are buying has a blade that is robust enough for cutting through multiple layers of shrink wrap (such as when cutting shrink wrap from a roll).
Check the knife has a secure point for attaching a safety lanyard. When working at height it is important to ensure the knife is secured against being accidentally dropped from the scaffolding.
Some knives are available with a ‘guarded blade’ that completely protects against accidental cuts. Although this type will only cut through a single sheet thickness of scaffold wrap, they can be useful for sites where the use of open blades is not allowed.
