Snug sealing solutions for the construction and plumbing sector
01 July 2019
PipeSnug is the evolution of an idea that professionally-qualified bricklayer and builder Chris Burdett, had to help solve a recurrent problem he encountered with his construction business. Making good around pipework can be a messy and time-consuming job, where you need to consider how much mortar to mix or silicone to use; especially if you are lugging it all up a ladder to make good at height.
Like all good ideas, PipeSnug is a simple but highly effective innovation designed to stop the mess, provide a neat finish and fast. It is designed to fit the elbow joint on 32 and 40mm waste pipes, once you have drilled the hole using a 52mm core drill. The product is pushed straight into the bored hole, giving a snug seal around the hole where a pipe exits a wall. It looks smart, eliminates the need for mortaring or siliconing and it helps to maintain the energy efficiency of the property by tightly filling in any gaps where heat would otherwise escape, and it keeps out vermin. PipeSnug was launched back in early 2017 and since then it has gone from strength to strength, with strong sales and a raft of innovation and Top Product awards.
“We started out with the basic idea and we knew how the product needed to function, but we did not have an actual CAD, so we were specifically looking for a manufacturer who could provide a concept-to-shelf solution'' commented Alex Lever, Burdett’s business partner. “We managed the preparation and research, applying for patents and funding. Luckily, we did not encounter any issues in the manufacturing process,” added Lever.
