PipeSnug Now Available in Jewson
Jewson, one of the UK’s largest chains of builders' merchants, is now stocking PipeSnug products in hundreds of its branches. The announcement by Jewson is the latest success for PipeSnug as upcoming changes to Part L of the Building Regulations specify the sealing of pipes with energy efficient pipe collars and grommets.
One of the ways heat is lost from a home is through the pointing or seals around pipes that exit through an external wall. Traditionally, ‘making good’ around pipes is done by using mortar or a sealant, but this can result in a messy finish and weathering causes cracks that let out heat. These methods may result in a space which struggles to meet the new Part L requirements.
“We are delighted to be stocking PipeSnug across our branches and on our website, with PipeSnug pipe collars and FlueSnug, which is designed specifically for boiler flues, being endorsed by major boiler companies. PipeSnug is also Part L compliant in helping with airtightness in properties, as well as being quick and easy to install which is great news for our customers,” says Lisa Young, Category Director for Jewson.
“We are absolutely delighted that PipeSnug and FlueSnug are being stocked by merchants like Jewson,” says Alex Lever, Director of PipeSnug. “More and more tradespeople are turning to our products to seal holes arounds pipes, saving time, money, mess and hassle – while making pipework installations much more energy efficient.”
The changes to Part L regulations are designed to make the homes of the future more comfortable and energy efficient. One of the areas that’s seen change in these regulations is around airtightness. This is because the Government has recognised that more airtight homes are able to keep heat loss down to a minimum.
PipeSnug comes in a range of sizes to suit standard waste and soil pipe fittings. This means you can use the product on a wide variety of pipe, internally and externally. The 32mm and 40mm collars are a great fit for solvent weld waste pipe fittings or boiler condensate pipes and fit a 52mm core-drilled hole, while the 110mm ones are ideal for push-fit and solvent weld soil pipe fittings and fit a 152mm core-drilled hole. The FlueSnug version works with 100mm boiler flues.
All PipeSnug products can be fitted in seconds, with another added benefit of the 110mm PipeSnug and the FlueSnug being that they can be installed at height, without the need for ladders or scaffolding. This is because the products are flexible enough to be pushed through the hole meant for the pipework, saving even more time and fuss.

PipeSnug is the evolution of an idea that Chris Burdett, a professionally-qualified bricklayer and builder, had to help solve a problem that he encountered on every job he ran with his construction business.
Chris met Alex Lever and in 2014 they decided to form Snug Solutions Ltd to design and produce the product.
PipeSnug is the first product brought to market by Snug Solutions but we have other exciting products we are working on, all of which are focused on solving problems in the construction and plumbing sector.
