Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts in the Rest of World
Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts provide optimal load bearing capacity whilst offering protection against insulation compression. Designed for use in pipe supports, hanger brackets and clamps, they will support the compressive loads imposed by horizontal pipework carrying water or other liquids.
Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are available to suit a full range of pipe diameters and in a full range of insulation thicknesses and densities. Standard sizes are available (see Technical Data) however special sizes are available on request.
Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are CE marked, and manufactured from CFC/HCFC -free non-fibrous premium performance insulation.
In addition to allowing a continuous vapour barrier on below ambient systems, thermal analysis of a +75°C LTHW system to EN ISO 10211:2007 has shown that Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support System can limit heat loss by up to 4x more than rubber lined pipe clips, 5x more than metal pipe clips and 10x more than hardwood pipe support inserts.
Load bearing calculations for the standard range of Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are based upon the minimum compressive strength of the relevant density and include a safety factor of five. They are designed to support the maximum static compressive loads imposed by horizontal water filled mild steel and copper pipework with hanger supports spaced at the maximum centres shown below. Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are not designed to accommodate pipe anchor loads and stresses.
