Cover and protect pipework with UK Boxings

Our durable and weather resistant metal pipe boxing is used widely to conceal and protect external pipework and building services from the risk of damage on a range of applications, while also helping improves the finish of completed projects.

Typically installed to cover external pipework, such as gas supply pipes and low carbon distributed heating system pipework, UK Boxings’ tough metal pipe boxing is also used to conceal pipework and systems associated with ground source or air source heat pumps.

Bespoke manufactured to the requirements of each individual project from corrosion resistant 2mm thick aluminium, they also incorporate a PPC finish, which can be selected from a wide range of BS and RAL colours to contrast or blend in with the surroundings.

In addition to external applications, metal boxing is also used on interior social housing projects, where fire sprinklers are installed, to conceal runs of pipework where there are no sprinkler heads. As the boxing is non-combustible, it can aid compliance with fire safety requirements.

A choice of fixing methods is available with the option of either an integral flange or using concealed angle brackets. With either system, the ‘U’ shaped channel profiles can be readily secured to external walls, while access panels and lockable doors can be incorporated to provide a simple solution for inspection and maintenance, while retaining security.
