Pipesnug

PipeSnug makes installing pipes easier, and replaces the need for mortar around pipes where they exit the wall. The product is the evolution of an idea by Chris Burdett, a builder and bricklayer with over 25 years’ experience in the trade, and business partner Alex Lever. PipeSnug is designed so that any plumber or builder can use it to seal the hole where a pipe exits a wall. Quicker, cheaper, and cleaner than traditional methods, PipeSnug can be used in all weathers on any plumbing or construction project, including newbuilds, extensions, loft conversions and kitchen or bathroom installations – giving the job a quicker, smarter finish. PipeSnug has also been used extensively on boiler installations where the condensate pipe goes externally into 32mm pipe to comply with current industry recommendations. The product’s snug fit also means that PipeSnug helps to maintain the energy efficiency of the property, by tightly filling in any gaps where heat would otherwise escape. This helps installers to comply with Part L of the Building Regulations and keeps the risk of heat escaping from a building to a minimum. “Filling the hole around a pipe where it comes out the wall has always been a problem, it can take 20 minutes to point properly – mix the mortar, make good and clean up afterwards,” explained Alex Lever, Director of PipeSnug. “It often leaves a very unprofessional finish to a home and can crack over time. PipeSnug has changed all that and it can be fitted in all weathers, unlike mortar, silicone and so on.” www.pipesnug.co.uk
