Sager Pipelane: Simply Better

With its PIPELANE products, SAGER has successfully defi ned the key production parameters so that the end product is a «pipe section» which meets the highest demands for heat and sound insulation using mineral wool. In addition, SAGLAN slabs and rolls for technical insulation are optimum supplementary products for building services and industry.

Straight line sections can be insulated quickly, easily and reliably using different materials. There are tricky spots, however, which require on-site adjustments. Apart from being non-fl ammable, glass wool clearly stands out for its elasticity and adaptability. And in addition, its bulk density is signifi cantly lower than that of rock wool products, which allows the processor to work more efficiently and economically.

All PIPELANE products are non-fl ammable and are classified A1 (Switzerland 6q.3) for non-coated products and A2 (5.3) for products coated with pure aluminium.

All mineral wool products solidifi ed with an organic binder, i.e. rock wool and glass wool, face the problem that the binder has a tendency to evaporate at ≥ 250 °C. Usually, a melting point of ≥ 1000 °C is only required for specific types of buildings and/or for the unprotected penetration of fire compartments.


Our products are highly biodegradable and have been awarded the EUCEB and RAL quality labels.

Since 1978, Sager AG has been producing glass wool products under the SAGLAN brand. SAGER thus has more than 30 years of experience in mineral wool production and has gathered considerable expertise over the decades. Two years ago, SAGLAN added pipe sections under the PIPELANE brand to its product range which primarily comprises slabs and rolls. Today, SAGER is a performance-oriented and fl exible medium-sized Swiss company which considers itself a partner of its customers. More than 60 years on the market stand for long partnerships, trust, personal relationships as well as technical and functional solutions. In addition, SAGER has vast experience in the production of expanded polystyrene and is therefore well familiar with strict quality assurance measures. It carries out internal as well as external
quality control.

The Beginners Guide to Pipe Insulation: Flexible Foams

Next up in the series we are doing on pipe insulation is "flexible foams"; a category that includes polyethylene and expanded nitrile rubber.

Polyethylene Pipe Insulation
Climaflex pipe insulation is the UK's leading brand for polyethylene pipe insulation. This is the grey foam that most people are familiar with, the kind you would traditionally find in garden centres for example. Polyethylene is the cheapest, widely available product in the market. People very often wrongly assume cheap means poor quality, this is not the case with a brand such as Climaflex. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/m.K at 0°C which is broadly equal to that of any other flexible foam, and it also has a much higher "μ factor" than other foams, making it more resistant to moisture ingress. These facotrs make it ideal for use around the home, being easy to work with and providing good insulation. 
The material can be purchased in 1m and 2m lengths, and is available in wall thicknesse…

The Beginners Guide To Pipe Insulation: Getting to grip with the basics

Our Beginners Guide series of blogs will look at the common areas of pipe insulation lagging that you will want to look at when choosing your product. This guide will be of most interest to the DIY installers, but some of our later guides will cover more complex products and areas of application.

One of the things we get asked about a lot is what the dimensions quoted for pipe insulation actually mean. You will always see three measurements quoted when describing pipe insulation; Wall Thickness, Bore Size and Length.

In the below diagram, A is the "Bore" and B is the "Wall".

Wall thickness is very simply how much insulation you have; so for example if you have 13mm Wall pipe insulation, then that means you have 13mm of insulation on either side of your pipe. This thickness is very often one of the most important part of your decision; too thin and you might not get the results you are looking for but too thick and it might not fit between your pipe and the wall.


Frost protection for domestic pipes

With the cold weather approaching we thought it would be a good idea to touch on how best to protect your pipes from frost this winter.

When dealing with frost protection on pipes inside a building your aim with insulating them is to delay the onset of freezing for as long as possible; it is not possible to guarantee a pipe will not freeze by insulation alone. The better the insulation, and the thicker the insulation, the longer you will give yourself. Under normal circumstances you aim to give yourself about 8-10 hours protection against sub zero temperatures. With pipes inside a home this is usually long enough to be sure the pipes will not freeze.

Ice formation inside the pipes will lead to an increase in pressure. As the water tries to flow this pressure will increase, and eventually will lead to the pipes bursting. A burst pipe can cause a lot of problems, not least of which is a lot of damage to your property and a lot of expense incurred.

Water regulations state that all water …
