Hot Pipe Insulation

Hot pipe insulation forms an important part of the ROCKWOOL Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) range.

Designed to be applied around pipes carrying substances at temperatures between 12°C and 150°C, our products help prevent heat loss during transportation – and can protect against dangerous fire hazards.

Why do we need hot pipe insulation?

Hot pipes are widely used for heating and warm water distribution in large buildings and complexes, such as airports, factories and high-rise residential blocks.

The distances travelled by hot pipes can be long, and the spaces they pass through extremely cold.

Insulation acts to keeps the heat inside the pipes while air or water is being transported from the boiler/heating system to central heating units. This helps ensure minimal temperature loss while in transit, and a comfortable indoor atmosphere.

Installing quality hot pipe insulation means less energy is needed to maintain the desired temperature levels.

Fire resilient insulation is also essential for fire protection in HVAC systems. Hot piping may run through construction or factory sites that are full of people – or apartment buildings where people sleep. Shielding workers and occupants from the high temperatures inside, and possible fire hazards, is vital.

Calculator and savings

Insulating hot pipes can reduce energy costs by more than 20 percent. This often results in a return on investment within several years of installing.

Due to the pipe’s layered structure, heat radiation through seams, between pipe sections, is kept to a minimum.

Sustainability and energy efficiency

Heating and cooling in buildings and industry accounts for half of the EU’s energy consumption. Reducing energy demand is therefore extremely important to both cut down energy costs, and minimise the carbon footprint generated by constructions.

We develop solutions that contribute towards this goal.
