The Kooltherm Pipe Insulation System is suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects in the residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sectors.

The Kooltherm Pipe Insulation System comprises Kooltherm Pipe Insulation manufactured from Kooltherm rigid phenolic insulation, and Kooltherm Insulated Pipe support Inserts fabricated from Kooltherm High-Density rigid phenolic insulation and Kooltherm FireSleeves.

Kooltherm Pipe Insulation is used to insulate mild steel, stainless steel, copper and plastic pipework for cold, chilled, refrigeration, heating and hot water services. Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts are designed to be used in pipe hanger brackets for load bearing applications and will support the compressive loads imposed by horizontal pipework carrying water or other liquids.
