Unsightly exposed pipe work either above or below domestic central heating boilers can now be concealed quickly, efficiently and economically, with a new one-piece pre-formed pipe casing from Peterborough based casing specialist, Encasement.
Finished with a wipe clean white melamine surface, making it ideal for use in kitchen environments, the new ‘n-case’ Boiler Pipe Work Casing is manufactured in one piece from durable pre-formed plywood, enabling it to be fitted quickly and easily, either free standing or secured using mechanical fixings or mastic adhesives.
The single ‘U’ shaped section, which measures 400mm wide, 200mm deep and 300mm high, enables it to fit most standard boilers, allowing gas and central heating pipes to be concealed, which improves the appearance and reduces the risk of burns on hot pipes.
Encasement’s MD, Martin Taylor, commented: “As many boilers are located in kitchens or utility rooms, exposed pipe work looks unattractive and can make the areas appear unfinished, which is a pity as considerable investment may have been made in a new boiler or kitchen, only to be let down by unsightly pipes.
“This is as true of housing refurbishment projects in the public sector as it is of private houses, yet for just £15, the problem can be overcome with a simple to fit, one piece casing. Also, it’s considerably quicker and cheaper to fit than trying to fabricate a suitable cover from pieces of plywood or MDF and then having to screw it all together on-site.”
