Water (moisture) is the enemy of outdoor insulation! It attacks in many forms, from torrential rains, to snow, ice, and humidity. And the challenge of any type of insulation jacketing is to prevent the infiltration of moisture. Once moisture ingresses to the insulation – over time – ultimately renders its insulative values useless. Not to mention the inevitable and irreversible effects of corrosion on metal piping due to compromised jacketing and wet, moisture laden insulation. PipeGlove is purposely-built and engineered with a “Stay-Dry Insulation” design. No soggy, corrosion-causing, worthless insulation and wasted expense.
When the need to modify, repair or inspect existing plumbing is necessary, conventional tin clad insulation is extremely difficult to reuse, at best! Most plumbing changes require re-insulation…meaning another insulating service call…not so with PipeGlove. Its modular, custom-fit design provides a glove-like fitment to pipes, fittings and valves. It’s quickly installed in any weather conditions, easily removed for plumbing changes and inspection and easily reused – over and over again – like the installers gloves. In fact, you should think of it as a reusable glove that was custom-made for your plumbing, the end result being even more cost savings!
No other reusable insulation offers so many protective benefits. PipeGlove utilizes Hook & Loop-fastening componentry – no awkward buckles, hooks or cords. No longer are tin snips, sheet metal screws and caulk sealants required. Nor are there any accompanying, potentially-harmful, jagged tin edges. Power tools are a thing of the past. No more accidental cut and costly damaged heat-trace…Saving you money and time!
