Collection: Pipe insulation

Welcome to our online shop, which specializes in technical insulation and especially pipe insulation. Here you will find a variety of products for high-quality insulation and insulation applications. We will also explain to you what makes pipe insulation so profitable, what you need to pay attention to when choosing the material for your pipe insulation and how you can carry out the insulation yourself.

Pipe insulation: Save energy and costs through proper insulation

Insulating heating and water pipes has several advantages. With the right pipe insulation, you can save a lot of energy and therefore money. Warm water is transported from the boiler to the heating surfaces in heating pipes. The pipes often run through unheated rooms and basements and give off some of the heat. Proper pipe insulation can reduce these additional costs.

The situation is similar with pipes that carry cold water. Without pipe insulation, the water cannot maintain its intended temperature in warmer environments. The pipe insulation of the cold water pipe also helps against condensation, as warm ambient air does not hit the pipes directly.

According to GEG and EnEV, pipe insulation is mandatory for homeowners

Insulating pipes is not only economical, it is even legally mandatory according to the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) and the Building Energy Act (GEG).

Which pipes do I need to insulate?

In addition to heating and water pipes, there are other areas of application for pipe insulation: solar insulation, outdoor insulation and pipe insulation in the ground.

What material should the pipe insulation be made of?

Homeowners have a variety of insulation materials to choose from. Common materials include rubber, polyethylene and mineral wool or rock wool.

Insulating heating pipes yourself – step-by-step instructions

With a little manual skill, you can easily insulate your heating pipes yourself. We will explain to you in 6 steps how to proceed.

  1. Measurement and material requirements : Measure the heating pipes with a tape measure and add the lengths, including obstacles such as pumps or valves. This is how you determine the insulation material requirements.

  2. Turn off the heater : Before insulating, you need to turn off the heater and let the pipes cool down.

  3. Cutting the material : Cut the insulation material to the length of the pipe. If you are using pre-made hoses, shorten them to the desired size with a craft knife.

  4. Attaching the insulation material : Most insulation tubes already have a slot. Put the hoses over the pipes and press the self-adhesive seams together. Make sure there are no gaps.

  5. Insulating Curves and Valves : Use rigid materials such as polyethylene or mineral wool to create indentations for curves. For T-connections, cut off pieces of insulation at an angle of 45 degrees and connect the ends. For fittings and valves, cut out suitable molded parts and glue them close together. Alternatively, there are prefabricated corner and T-connecting elements or special insulating shells.

  6. Gluing the interfaces : Complete the process by securing all interfaces and transition points with electrical tape. Make sure the material fits snugly against the pipe and the sections are close together to prevent heat radiation.
