Flared Edge iShields
An INSULATION COMPONENTS iSHIELD (Saddle) is a 180 degree rounded piece of galvanized coated steel used to protect piping insulation from compressing at pipe hanger locations. IC Pipe iShields come with flared edges machined into each part. The flared edges protect the iShields from cutting into the pipe insulation which damages the vapor barrier. It is suggested that wood or fiberglass iBlocks be used along with the iShield to guarantee the proper support. (See the IC Wood or Fiberglass iBlock Product Data Sheets.)
- Flared Edge - To prevent the iShield from cutting into pipe insulation when installing and to add structural strength
- Galvanized Finish - For superior rust proof protection.
- Each iShield marked with its outside diameter measurement - along with IC charts this guarantees the proper size iShield is used
- Heavy Duty Packaging with clear labeling - Improved, stronger packaging with label providing detailed
information on diameter, gauge, length, and pieces per carton.
