Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts

Kooltherm Pipe Support

Premium performance insulated pipe supports

Kingspan 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.

Kingspan 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. They 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 Kingspan Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts 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 Kingspan 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. Kingspan Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are not designed to accommodate pipe anchor loads and stresses.

Which Pipe Supports Are You Specifying?

Over the course of any major project, service engineers may have to install thousands of pipe clamps/clips on the pipework of a building.

When installing these products, it is important to ensure there is a layer of insulation material between the metal clip and the pipework to prevent heat transfer and thermal bridging and in practice, most projects will either have phenolic insulated pipe support inserts or wood block pipe support inserts installed and in some cases nothing at all.

Our short video highlights the importance of choosing the correct pipe supports for your project.
