Pipe Insulation Support Pegs (With PVC Disc)
Brand : Pipe Supports
- Unit Of Measure:
- Per Bag (25 Pegs)
Pipe Insulation Support Pegs are speedy and convenient wood dowel spacers for pipe insulation at hanger locations. The wood dowel support is adhered to a PVC disc, providing a one-piece support system with a built in vapor barrier. The PVC Disc meets a 25/50 Flame/Smoke rating.
PURPOSE: Pipe Insulation Support Pegs are used to prevent the compression of pipe insulation at pipe hanger points. The dowel supports are inserted at the bottom part of the insulation to allow the pipe to rest on the hanger while the insulation is left untouched. One Peg is required for pipe sizes up to 5". Two or more Pegs should be used on piping larger than 6".
DIRECTIONS: Simply cut a 3/4" round hole into the bottom of the pipe insulation where the pipe would rest on the hanger. Insert the Insulation Support Peg and press the PVC Disc onto the pipe insulation. The rubbery glue on the inside of the PVC Disc will create and maintain the vapor barrier. ASJ tape may also be used to seal over the PVC Disc if necessary. The Easy-Grip Hole Cutter can be used to carve out round sections of pipe insulation when inserting pipe support pegs. Use of a pipe shield is also highly recommended.
Pipe Insulation Support Pegs come in either 1", 1-1/2", and 2" sizes depending on the thickness of the insulation used. For example if you are installing 2 x 1, you would order 1" Pegs. If you are installing 2 x 1-1/2 you would order 1-1/2" Pegs.
UNIT OF MEASURE: Per Bag of 25 Pegs
The support pegs work nicely. Just make sure you know what thickness the insulation is before you order. I was going to order the cutter for installing them but was unable to find it on the website. The pegs do seal nice as well .
