The guide provides you with extensive information and tools so that by the end of reading the guide you have everything you need to be able to select the best pipe clamp for your installation.

An overview of the best pipe clamp guide

Since our guide is extremely in-depth, we’ve decided to put together an overview of the page, to give you an idea of what you can expect to see.

The guide is made up of 10 main sections, from how pipe clamps work, to the variables that must be taken into consideration when selecting the right one.

Section 1 – The four main types of pipe clamps

In this section, we take a quick look at the four main types of pipe clamps that are being used throughout buildings today. Not only do we provide an overview of each type, but we also give a quick tip on which individual type is best in different circumstances.

Section 4 – The size of the clamp that you need

Although this seems like a simple one to figure out for yourself, there are a few considerations that you have to take into account. For example, making sure you know the correct diameter of the pipe you are fixing, and if you require insulation underneath the clamp. We also provide you with a handy pipe size conversion chart to help you work out the diameter of clamp you need.
