Snug Solutions Ltd is officially launching PipeSnug at Installer2017 at the Ricoh Arena on 9-12 May.
PipeSnug is an innovative product which makes installing waste pipes easier and replaces the need to point mortar around pipes where they exit the wall.
Manufactured in the UK, PipeSnug is patent pending and designed so that any plumber or builder can use it to seal the hole where a pipe exits a wall. Traditionally, this job is done by pointing or sealing the hole with mortar, silicone or expanding foam which can become very messy to prepare and use, and doesn’t look great on the building’s exterior.
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.
PipeSnug is the evolution of an idea by Chris Burdett, a builder and bricklayer with over 25 years’ experience in the trade.
“The PipeSnug concept came to me out on site one day when I was preparing to point mortar around a waste pipe for what seemed like the millionth time,” explains Chris. “I realised a simple fitting would save so much time compared to mixing mortar or applying silicone around the pipe, as well as blending into the fabric of the building visually.”
Forming Snug Solutions with business partner Alex Lever to launch PipeSnug, it is the first product Chris and Alex have brought to market and solves a real problem for those in the construction industry. The company intends to launch an even wider choice of PipeSnug sizes in coming months.
