Pipe insulation is a quick and easy way of reducing the energy wasted around your home; we offer a range of lagging products suitable for DIY use. Common applications might include insulating the pipes in your loft to prevent them freezing or the hot water pipes running around the home to prevent the loss of heat. We can offer cheap grey foam insulation called polyethylene (still a very good insulator) or self-sealing rubber foam which is very flexible and easy to install.
Pipe insulation (also referred to as pipe lagging) is a product that offers thermal or acoustic insulation for pipework in a domestic, commercial or industrial environment. It can limit the rate or heat transfer or be used for noise control depending on requirement.
The most common pipe insulation used around the home is polyethylene (and the best known brand is Climaflex). This is a great, low cost product that can be used to protect pipes from freezing in the winter and keep them cool in the summer. It is easy to install and work with, being split down the length for DIY use.
You will also find flexible elastomeric foams (also known as nitrile rubber) are commonly used for domestic pipe insulation (well know brand names are Eurobatex, K-Flex or Armaflex). These have the same thermal values as polyethylene, but are more flexible and have a Class 0 fire rating which is a requirement when working to certain building regulations. These products can be provided as Split or UnSplit Tubes, or as Self-Sealing Products.
Foil Faced lagging (also referred to as Pipe Sections when talking about rigid products) is more commonly used in commercial and industrial pipework applications. The common types are Mineral Wool (Glass Wool or Rockwool) or phenolic foam (The most well know brand name being Kooltherm made by Kingspan).
