Why Use Steel Service and Downpipe Protectors?

This type of protection is NON-Sacrificial. This is where the estimated impact is calculated not to remove or damage the protector or at least not damage the product it is protecting such as pipes.

Thinner stainless steel or plastic options can be seen in our Surface Protection section. Steel is an inexpensive possibly the most economical downpipe protecting method. It allows for pipes to be mounted external to columns instead of cast into columns. Should they be damaged we are able to remove and reinstall the same product very economical.

Advice

Care should be taken to specify fixings that suit the positions and density, also taking into account the strength required. The fixing should be considered as to how they bend or react to various impacts and difficulty in removal. Fixings should be considered for length adjustment and should the reinforcing be hit during drilling then full depth of fixing is not achievable. Therefore requiring onsite adjustment which will be costed as an extra if not prearranged. The coating of the downpipe protector should be considered, painting a colour helps define the product position but increases maintenance in repainting.

It can be best to use a PGI galvanized sheet of 1.5 – 3mm thick which is possibly the toughest coating. A high viz (Vision) glow-in-the-dark strip or several stripes can be easily applied to at least likely positions of scrapes and bumps and can easily be removed and reapplied if damaged. If in areas of walking a safe edge will need to be considered as over against a guillotine edge. Consider sheets available before specifying sizes as bad sizing can create a lot of waste or possible sheets being required to come from another state. This information is the same for Steel corner guards and steel column wraps.

It is important to try and make one-size-fits situations as there are many costs per design. Sometimes it is better to create a split protector so that it can be adjusted to suit each position and make sure it’s a safe area.

You will need to consider a gap between protectors and such items as Pipes and fire systems needing protection. We suggest an 80mm gap is a minimum.

Projects

Colours

Colours can be any powder coat colour or paint colour. Standard is sheet zinc plated hot dip galvanised available or safety yellow to make the area safe.

Sizes

Sizes usually start at 100mm off the ground and up to 1100mm off the ground top height. That works with a 1200mm wide sheet of metal. However, we can do up to 3.9 metres.  Most installs have a finished height off-floor of 1000mm. You need more than 800mm to make the area safe for people at arm’s height.
