Title: Acoustic lagging for pipes
Post by: spiidey on June 10, 2013, 08:59:17 PM
Pipes that carry central heating (to radiators) and hot water (to hot water tank) seem to rub against timber when they carry the hot water through and expand.

Is there any acoustic lagging that could be used to stop this?  Or another product?

As you can see, pipes go through timber joists therefore there is little scope to widen the existing holes where the pipes go through as this would weaken the joists.

remove what ever that stuff is in the hole, use our foam mat (1/8" up to 2") to make your own pipe sleeve 1 linear foot should be more than enough, insert into framing. Now take our pipe insulation and wrap pipe, glue pipe wrap to frame and pipe.
