What is PipeSnug?
A PipeSnug replaces the need to point mortar around pipes where they exit the wall.
PipeSnug is a new and completely unique product that a plumber or builder can use to seal the hole where a pipe exits a wall. Traditionally, this job is done by pointing or sealing the hole with mortar, silicon or expanding foam.
PipeSnug is quicker, cheaper, cleaner and more energy efficient than any of these methods.
PipeSnug can be used on any plumbing or construction project, including new builds, extensions, loft conversions and kitchen or bathroom installations.
“Why wouldn’t you use it?”
Once a plumber has core drilled a hole in an exterior wall to push a pipe through, they will then have to fill the gap between the pipe and the wall. This is to eliminate the ingress of water and insects and help maintain the insulated U-Value (heat loss) of the wall.
In many cases, the hole is just left unfilled!
The Solution – PipeSnug:
Additional benefits of PipeSnug:
- Reduces damp and mould ingress (particularly on old solid wall construction)
- Helps prevent pest and insect infestation
- Covers the damage to brickwork caused by core drilling
- Helps to reduce noise from pipework vibration
- Helps to protect pipework from sharp masonry
- Increases ease of installation by securing pipework in place prior to fixing
