Pipe Boxing / Casings

Zylo preformed casings and boxing are a patented range of products for encasing unsightly pipes, ductwork, electrical cables, fire sprinkler systems and structures. They offer the building trade a high quality, low cost, fast track solution to a professional instalment, whilst substantially reducing installation time, materials and labour costs.


Construction

Although inherently similar, the distinguishing feature between the Zylo pipe casing and pipe boxing range is the edge. Pipe boxings have square corners with a 90° angle whereas pipe casings feature a 7mm radius available in both 90° and 120° configurations.


The Zylo pipe boxing and casing range are both manufactured from FSC® moisture resistant MDF with a consistent 9mm thickness throughout, allowing a uniform appearance irrespective of overall size between the whole range.


Zylo products are available as standard in 2400mm lengths; 3000mm lengths are available upon request. With 6 different profiles and over 150 different standard sizes, there is certain to be a product to suit every encasement requirement.


Finish

The moisture resistant MDF is pre-finished in a FSC® seamless light laminate, ensuring the product is fully compliant with the UK Government "Timber Procurement Policy" guidelines. The light laminate is available in either "standard" white or "gloss" white which as opposed to a painted finish will resist scuffing and warping over time.


Both finishes are water resistant, easy to clean and require no painting. However, the "standard" finish can be tiled, plastered, wallpapered and even accept a top coat of paint to the surface with minimum preparation, enabling the pipe boxings to blend in with the surrounding decor.


Fire Classification

Not all pipe boxing brands have been tested to the European Reaction to Fire Classification System. Therefore when choosing pipe boxing or fire sprinkler boxing it may be wise to check with the manufacturer that the finished product, including any coating has been tested (not just the materials used for manufacture). Changes to the application of the original material can affect the classification significantly. Further fire classification information


Zylo products have been tested and classified to European fire safety standard EN13501-1 and both the Zylo pipe boxing and pipe casings can be applied as fire sprinkler boxing when installing new or enclosing existing fire sprinkler systems. Holes for the sprinkler heads can be cut to size on site with minimum fuss.
