Concealing Scaffolding scrim are digitally printing a life-size photograph of building facades on scaffold scrims is a great way to conceal scaffolding during construction or renovation work.
This concealing scaffolding scrim was digitally printed.
Digitally printed onto a mesh PVC and installed on the famous Harley Street, London. This street is renowned for its prestigious private doctors and hospitals. The scaffold scrim also can be known as building or scaffold wrap was a total size of 15 meter high x 21m wide. This was a partially difficult project as the print of the life size building also followed onto the digitally printed hoarding. Ensure the images married up takes some careful planning. Making sure the colour of the mesh print also matched the printed hoarding needs to be considered as the two types of materials will print differently.
As with much of London keeping up appearances is important which is why this high end medical practise needed to conceal the scaffolding whilst renovation work is carried out on the old building.
Using a high resolution Sony camera, photos were taken of the Victorian buildings and artworked so when printed the scaffolding scrim are life-size and visually accurate. Typically when we arrived to take the photos there were many cars parked in front of the building. Our specialist scaffold scrim designer had to Photoshop the cars out of the image.
Installation had to be carried out early in the morning and on a saturday as this road is very busy during working hours and with unwell patients. Project Print Management supplied and installed a sub-frame to the existing scaffolding structure which the concealing scaffolding scrim was wrapped an tensioned onto.
