​​​TurboTube Left In This Van Overnight ​
A little maintenance goes a long way

​​What’s the best insulation material there is? Quite often the answer is ‘the one you have with you’.

For plumbers and small heating contractors insulation is something that’s done when the boiler is installed or not at all. If there’s no insulation in the van on the day then the pipes might never be insulated.​

Pipe insulation is a legal requirement

​​Part L of the building regulations requires that some domestic heating pipework must always be insulated – this is a legal requirement and not having any on hand during installation of the pipework is no good excuse. It creates a problem for plumbers who have little enough room in their vans to store their tools, let alone a set of insulation for several different pipe sizes.

What’s more, 2 m tubes of soft insulation stored in a van for any length of time are likely to become damaged long before they are ever installed on a pipe.

TurboTube: coiled and ready for action

​​One product innovation from Kaimann might be the answer for thousands of plumbers and heating contractors. Kaiflex TurboTube is uniquely coiled in such a way that it makes it possible to keep an emergency stock of insulation in your van at all times.

Coiled pre-slit and with the tube open, Kaiflex TurboTube is supplied in a far more compact package than a standard 2 m tube. This not only makes TurboTube less likely to experience damage, it also makes it viable to store the product in a van ready and waiting for the next time you install a boiler but forget to pack the insulation.​
