Pipesnug leads the way in new Part L changes
PipeSnug is the industry’s only comprehensive solution that meets Part L’s new requirements to seal pipes both inside and out, without the need for sealant, mortar or costly air sealing tape.
The new Approved Part L Building Regulations was introduced in December 2021, with an industry transition period until June 2022.
What are the new Part L regulations?
Part L Building Regulations now requires pipe grommets and pipe collars to be used on all service penetrations to help maintain air tightness around pipes in walls.
The new regulations will aim to help the country meet its Net Zero goals by increasing energy efficiency and air tightness in buildings and establishing a minimum requirement for air permeability in new homes.
Why PipeSnug is the best solution
PipeSnug is the only pipe seal that provides an all-in-one solution that meets Part L’s requirement to seal around pipework inside and outside a building, without the need for sealant, mortar or expensive air sealing tape.
PipeSnug is a quick and easy-to-install solution designed to fit into the core-drilled hole in the wall through which the pipe or boiler flue exit. It prevents heat from escaping, acts as a barrier to drafts, dampness, insects, and pests, and provides an attractive finish.
Pipesnug has been endorsed by the Daly Group’s Ian Hudson and Jack O’Donnell in Professional Builder magazine, who have highlighted its time-saving benefits.
Jack O’Donnell is quoted by the magazine as reporting PipeSnug “saves 30 minutes installation time pre-mixing and pointing of mortar, per boiler”. The company also told how it would “assist them in conforming with Part L of the Building Regulations.”
When it comes to Part L Building Regulations – pipes in walls – and compliance with recent changes, PipeSnug pipe seals are leading the way providing a quicker, cheaper and cleaner solution than any traditional method.
