  • Description & Key Features

    Product Description

    The GRS Radiator Pipe Guide and Seal provides an impermeable barrier at the point at which radiator pipes meet the wall – an area identified as a key point for the loss of heat.

    Until now there has been no method of properly sealing this area, and because of this, many installations leave gaps around pipes. This allows heat to escape and bills to soar.

    This is an unsatisfactory state of affairs from all points of view, and one that could result in the failure of the mandatory pressure test - leading practical problems and financial consequences.

    Designed for use with increasingly popular plastic pipes, the Radiator Pipe Guide and Seal ensures there are no gaps through which heat can be lost. The innovative design guides pipes to the radiator, preventing kinks and twists.

    Inexpensive and easy to fit, the product provides a highly effective barrier conserving energy and reducing fuel costs.

    For builders it is an ingeniously simple way of complying with the revised Part L regulations regarding air leakage.
