Largest Insulated Pipe-Support ever made by TIDL

At a diameter of 813mm, the largest insulated pipe-support ever made by TIDL was designed using high density Tarecphen phenolic insulation with a heavy-guage galvanised outer sheild with a compressive strength of 1000kPa. This is one of a large order of specifically engineered and hand manufactured Phenolic and PIR pipe supports made by TIDL in Dublin for export to a data centre in Europe.

TIDL has been manufacturing insulated pipe supports for 25 years using various insulation products including Phenolic, Foamglas, Polyurethane, Calcium Silicate and Armaflex depending on the temperature and compressive strength requirements of the application.

Having achieved ISO9001:2008 quality management standard accreditation in June this year, clients can be assured that every single item manufactured in Dublin is quality checked and complies with the relevant strict EU standards.
