The PipeSnug makes installing waste pipes easier and neater for plumbers, according to inventor Chris Burdett.

A qualified bricklayer and builder, Chris developed the PipeSnug after frequently coming across the problem of how to seal a hole made when a pipe exits a wall. Traditionally, this is done by pointing or sealing the hole with mortar, silicone or expanding foam, which can be messy to prepare and use.

PipeSnug, launched earlier this year by Snug Solutions, has been designed as an alternative that provides a neater finish. PipeSnug can be used in all weathers on any plumbing or construction project, including newbuilds, extensions, loft conversions and kitchen or bathroom installations – giving the job a quicker, smarter finish.

The product's snug fit also means that PipeSnug helps to maintain the energy efficiency of the property, by tightly filling in any gaps where heat would otherwise escape. This helps installers to comply with Part L of the Building Regulations and keeps the risk of heat escaping from a building to a minimum.

Since PipeSnug's launch, the Snug Solutions' team, which includes Chris' business partner Alex Lever, has seen a great response by the trade. "We are delighted by how PipeSnug has now been received by the trade and merchant network after nearly three years' of research, development and hard work to bring the product to market," explained Alex. "We are now looking to expand the range, secure more distribution and look to spread knowledge of the product far and wide!"
