Last week I wrote a blog about Veritherm. This week I wanted to write one about a product I was introduced to a few months back, PipeSnug! Check them out here!


PipeSnug is, in their own words, (and I tend to agree), an innovative new product which provides an air-tight seal whilst maintaining a professional looking finish. This product is designed to fit ‘snuggly’ around pipes and flues where they exit a wall. From what I can see, this is really quite an exciting concept. You need not worry as this is completely compliant with the new changes to Part L of the Building Regulations, and in fact can make compliance a doddle. As you know, I am very stringent on air testing, and all things ‘building compliance’. I can sometimes be like a broken record, constantly reminding you how important it is to ensure your build has no air leaks. This product is designed to help with this process. This simple, yet effective concept, really does help to ensure the airtightness of your build. To top it off, the product and packaging is made from recycled or biodegradable materials! When we live in a world where recycling and looking after our planet is vital, this factor is not to be ignored! 


The other bonus to this product is the fitting. The actual installation takes less than 5 minutes. That’s 5 minutes in return for an air-tight seal around your pipework and flues. That really does seem like a fair exchange to me! It’s great to see a product which not only works, but is actually simple to put in place!


PipeSnug has kindly sent me some more information about their products. Currently they have the following versions on the market.


·      32mm (1¼”):  used for solvent weld waste pipe fittings and also boiler condensate pipe where it feeds into larger diameter pipe to avoid freezing.

·      40mm (1½”):  (as above)

·      110mm (4”):   for all push-fit and solvent weld soil pipe fittings.

·      FlueSnug:  for 100mm boiler flues, endorsed by Worcester Bosch, Ideal Heating and other leading boiler manufacturers


I love it when I find companies with the same ethos as me and I really will do everything I can to show everyone exactly what these products can do. If you would like more information you can check out the PipeSnug video here
