Pipe boxing

There is no quicker, easier or more cost-effective method of concealing pipework, flues, fire-sprinkler pipework and other building services than with our pre-formed and pre-finished pipe boxing solutions.

Manufactured from FSC® ‘Chain of Custody’ certified materials from sustainable sources, our extensive range of ‘L’ shaped and ‘U’ shaped pipe boxing profiles can be finished in white melamine and a wide selection of laminates, as well as a painted white finish for Versa FR.

The range also includes flame-retardant fire sprinkler boxing for interior applications, as well as our Arma heavy-duty pre-formed metal casings for exterior applications where pipe protection and security from vandalism or theft are primary considerations.

Riva & Riva D pipe boxing

Our versatile Riva and Riva ‘D’ pre-formed plywood pipe boxing is one of our most widely used products. Already installed in countless social housing, affordable housing and HA projects, it can be fitted in less than half the time of site made alternatives.

Versa 5 pipe & fire sprinkler boxing

Manufactured using 5mm thick FSC® certified sustainable timber, Versa 5 is a highly versatile solution for concealing pipework in both domestic and commercial applications from bathrooms and kitchens to major heating installations and fire sprinkler systems

Versa 8/8D pipe & fire sprinkler boxing

Manufactured from 8mm pre-formed plywood, Versa 8 ‘L’ shaped and Versa 8D ‘U’ shaped boxing can meet a diverse range of specifications, enabling a consistent, high quality finish to be achieved quickly on pipe & fire sprinkler boxing projects.

Versa FR sprinkler boxing

Where flame retardant boxing is required to conceal fire sprinkler installations, Versa FR is the perfect solution as it is fabricated from flame retardant Euroclass B standard compliant and FSC© ‘Chain of Custody’ certified material.

Boiler pipework casing

Concealing central heating and flue pipe work with our pre-formed and pre-finished boiler pipework casings can make an immediate improvement to any boiler installation. Also, they take less than half the time of site made alternatives to fit.

Arma exterior pipe protection

Developed for use in a range of projects, Arma metal boxing helps protect external pipework, cabling and building services from theft, accidental damage and vandalism, particularly where the pipes are in easy reach.

The on-site fabrication of pipe boxing and boiler pipework casings is time-consuming and can be costly, due to a number of factors including materials, paint, fabrication time and fitting. Whilst the true cost of site made material is often difficult to quantify, the chances are it’s considerably more expensive than you think.

Our ‘L’ shaped and ‘U’ shaped pipe boxing and boiler casing products are used in countless applications in private and public sector projects, from high volume social housing refurbishment and affordable housing initiatives to new house building and prestige apartments contracts with major house builders.

Many Local Authorities and Housing Associations have experienced the benefits in terms of speed, quality and cost savings that can be achieved by using our pre-formed casings rather than site made alternatives. They’re also simple to remove for maintenance and pre-finished with hardwearing melamine, so there’s no need to paint, which saves even more time.

Our Versa 5; Versa 8; Versa 8D and flame retardant Versa FR ranges of ‘L’ shaped and ‘U’ shaped boxings also enable fire sprinkler system pipework to be concealed easily to create an aesthetic finish in flats and communal areas.

All our ‘L’ shaped and ‘U’ shaped plywood boxing and casings are manufactured from FSC® Chain of Custody (CoC) certified timber. In addition, our Versa FR fire sprinkler boxing is FSC ® CoC certified and manufactured from Euroclass B standard compliant board.

Where durable and robust characteristics are needed to conceal and protect external pipe work, our Arma range is designed to do just that. Manufactured using powder-coated aluminium, Arma is used on simple vertical and horizontal pipe runs to more complex district heating and central boiler installations.

Alongside our wide range of products, we also offer a supply and install service, enabling us to maintain complete control over the project and provide expert installation solutions.
