Pipe Saddles

Pipe saddles is any pipe support that cradles a pipe and transfers the pipe’s load weight onto a supporting base.  Much like a saddle on a horse supports its rider and keeps them from bouncing on the animal, pipe saddles support a pipe’s weight.

With massive weight, rushing liquids, and corrosive elements bearing down on your pipes, it pays to give them support.  Installing pipe saddles is a simple and effective way to transfer the pipe’s load weight onto a supporting base.

When pipes rest on bare ground or grimy surfaces, they are susceptible to corrosion.  Simply raising pipes off pooling of liquids or dirty surfaces, can help prevent some forms of corrosion.

Elevating pipes also can separate pipes from dissimilar metals that might cause galvanic corrosion.

If you pipes rest of beams or other metallic surfaces unprotected, they can be exposed to metal to metal wear, due to pipe shift or vibration, the surface of the pipe digs into the supporting structure.

This can cause friction, tearing open the surface of your pipes causing ruptures. It can also create small abrasions on the exterior of your pipes, where little holes can harbour bacteria thus causing crevice corrosion.

Pipe saddles lift pipes off these harsh surfaces and give more control over the pipe’s movement.  This means that when pipes move, they glide along the surface you choose in a more controlled manner.

Another way that this design improves your piping system is that it adds a layer of stability.  Pipes may be seen as relatively stable, but they are susceptible to movement when vibrations run through pipes, liquids slosh around or pipes move from thermal expansion, this, in turn, can damage the pipe’s surface.

Sizes available, ranging from 20mm to 200mm.
