Why Thermal Insulation Is Needed?
Thermal insulation is essential for businesses in London because it can help to reduce energy costs, improve the comfort of employees and customers, and minimise the environmental impact of commercial operations.
London’s climate is characterised by cold winters and warm summers, which means that businesses need to stop their system from freezing during the winter and becoming too warm in the summer. This can be done by installing insulation to pipework systems to maintain a desired temperature that works with the system all year round. Proper insulation can also help to create a quieter indoor environment, improve air quality, and reduce the carbon footprint of commercial operations, making it a worthwhile investment for any business operating in London.
The temperature in a pipe system can also be regulated with a trace heating system in place, to find out more about this please go to our trace heating page.

What Else Can Be Installed To Your System?
You can have trace heating and valve jackets to help your system stay as effective as possible.
Trace Heating can be very useful if you need your system to always be within a particular temperature range. You can set the system to turn on and heat your pipework when the temperature goes below a certain degree, and then you can set it to turn off once it has heated up to the desired temperature. The system can
- Prevent freezing of the system during the winter when temperatures can go well below freezing.
- It can be controlled remotely, allowing easy temperature adjustment.
- Allows for your system to last longer and need fewer repairs.
Valve Jackets are another helpful feature you can add to your system.
Valves are often left without insulation because otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to access them, but with our jackets, you will be able to remove the insulation when you need to for maintenance quickly, and the jacket itself will keep the heat inside of the system which will help with energy efficiency and to keep the system running for longer without needing as much maintenance or repairs. The Jackets
- These are custom-made to perfectly fit around valves and fittings.
- Can be used on similar items if you need to move the jacket.
- Protect others from burning if people work close to the valve.
We specialise in manufacturing, supplying and installing specialist thermal jackets for pipe valves, flanges and other specialist equipment.
