Conceal and protect pipework with Arma metal boxing

With de-carbonisation and the move toward net zero goals prompting the increased use of low carbon district heating schemes, as well as air-source and ground source heat pump installations, Arma metal pipe boxing is the ideal solution to conceal and protect external pipework.

Already used in a range of social and affordable housing projects, Arma is a tough and versatile solution that helps increase security on applications where external pipework could be at risk from damage or vandalism, while also improving aesthetics and creating a uniform finish.

In addition, where fire sprinklers are installed in high rise residential blocks, Arma is also used to conceal interior runs of pipework where there are no sprinkler heads, such as in communal areas, as it is non-combustible and aids compliance with fire safety requirements.

All Arma boxing is bespoke manufactured from strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant aluminium, to the dimensions and requirement of individual projects, which helps simplify installation while enhancing the overall fit and finish.

Available with either a flange or angle fixing method, Arma’s ‘U’ shaped channel profiles can be readily secured to external walls with suitable fixings, while lockable hinged inspection doors can also be incorporated to ease routine inspection and pipework maintenance.

PPC finish in any RAL paint colour can be specified to contrast or blend in with wall colours and surroundings, while a range of dedicated pre-formed accessories is also available, which includes internal and external corners, as well as joint covers and end caps. Encasement also offers a supply and install service on the Arma product range.
